I've noticed in the past 10 years that the social support that used to be available in the congs, a shoulder to cry on, elders to help with family/marriage issues these seem to have been purposely withdrawn. Counsel is even heard from the platform that the elders are not there to help people with their problems.
So first in the 80s-90s they take away the congregation get to getters and social events and now they seem to be going one step further in taking away the emotional support for people too.
This will take away an aspect that I'm sure was keeping alot of people in the Borg, the community support. If that's not there and its just about meetings and ministry how many will start to get their emotional support elsewhere?
