Encourage all to support meetings for field service arranged by the congregation rather than always making private arrangements to go out on their own.

18 min: Offering the Greatest Man Book During December. There is a great need for this book. Hundreds of millions of people profess to be Jesus’ followers and claim to believe what he taught. People need to know what set him apart from all other men—their salvation depends on it. The Greatest Man book, chapter 133, states: “Our hearts are moved when we consider his sublime courage and manliness, his unparalleled wisdom, his superb ability as a teacher, his fearless leadership, and his tender compassion and empathy.” The Bible clearly identifies him as (1) a Witness (John 18:37), (2) a Savior (Acts 4:12), and (3) a King (Rev. 11:15). Have a capable publisher demonstrate a presentation using some of these points. Encourage all to share in distributing this book during December.
Song 61 and concluding prayer.
