But I raise that possibility not to get into a debate on the meaning of the policy, but simply to mention that there are other possible interpretations. Local leaders and auditors have the responsibility for making the definitive interpretations of the written policy for their particular units.
I kind of read it this way as well. I'll certainly check with the appropriate folks to make sure I've got it how they want it.
Speaking of auditors, after coming up for air after tithing settlement I printed out my first copy of the audit form. Alas, that's a topic for another thread.
