"home meeting" (was supposed to be done once a week).

"stats" or "share the know" (taken from the ML) - but unlike the way WS "shared the know", the homes were supposed to give the financial status of the home in real terms... not just using % like in WS. Most people didn't care, but those who were of the questioning type often wondered HOW MUCH money (our tithes) was going towards "publications", "missionaries", "office needs" and whatever else they had.

"report day"... was the 25th of every month. If your "report" was late, you could have your mailings put on hold for one month... ooo Rolling Eyes ... what a tough punishment! Later, they would put your home's name in a local newsletter to shame you.

some more Family phrases
There is "talk time"... the time when shepherds and parents can have a particular time to let the youth "pour out". This time could be while on a walk (walky-talky), during dish time, or on pick-ups.
The adults were supposed to use this time once a month to talk to their home shepherds.

There is also "bottle-breaking" or "it broke my bottle"... refering to "new wine being put into old bottles".

Sorry, here's another one...
I don't know... but these words and phrases are just popping up!
Do you remember how we had to pray using "Pyramid Power". That's a ML... Berg got a revelation that we were supposed to cup our hands in a pyramid shape and direct the "power" to produce more power.

I faithfully did it for so many years... until the "keys to the kingdom" came.

"Anointing" is that how you spell it? Too lazy to google for it. That one brings back a whole slew of greasy, and mostly bad memories.
