Your priesthood leaders are responsible for interpreting the handbook if there are questions. We can all give your opinions on the forum, but that is all they are.
I actually am a Priesthood leader directly responsible for interpreting the handbook And I've been asked this question for my interpretation, and I've asked my leader for his interpretation. I'm at the point where I must do what all Church leaders do in the end, look for the Spirit to inspire me specifically. But one good thing about this forum is that many forum members are a bit more "plugged in" to ongoing updates, as opposed to some local leaders that are so swamped with life, that they often don't keep track of all the various new things that come across their email desks.
So I welcome everyone's opinion, whether that's where to look in in the Handbook or online, as well as personal ideas. Gives me more to consider, as I decide what is appropriate for our local unit.
