Random update: I go to meetings regularly, and this year I had a realization that "everything has changed" Interesting changes: - new book study method is "read the whole chapter straight through", then just 2 - 3 "review" questions. From there the study overseer guides the discussion as we read through the cited verses / chapters. This book travels through Jesus life sequentially between the 4 Gospels. Initially, everyone in my hall was fairly stupefied ... "how do we do this?" ... without pre-written questions to answer, the verses guide the discussion. I will say this is a great and welcome change once it settled in. - videos. Lot's of videos. Mostly silhouette actors doing the ministry or animations of Bible stories. Before starting a new Bible book, there is a video played, which are great and you can (and should) view them here: https://www.jw.org/en/publications/videos/#en/categories/BibleBooks - locally, we are actually seeing some new faces, and from the mid-week meeting (where it's regulars only usually) is direct and overt statements to "not judge" people in regards to physical appearance. Lot's of tattoos and interesting hair out there These are some good changes, I must confess.
