24 Room 215 in
at last year's local memorial service, purported to honor jesus' sacrificial death and its signficance to the eternal prospects of humanity, the visiting speaker from bethel quite remarkably managed to talk for almost an hour without one recourse to the word "resurrection".. a remarkable achievement, given its centrality in the belief system of nominal christianity.
nor were the stirring moments of high drama in the bible's depicting of jesus last hours on earth-- his last supper and his prayer for the well-being of his disciples, the betrayal of judas, the agony of the garden; his disciples' succumbing to sleep; his betrayal and arrest in the garden of gethesemane; the scattering of his fear-gripped disciples; peter's denial, and the climactic soul-stirring awareness of the signficance of the empty tomb and its guardian's chilling pronouncement to mary magdalene and the women "why are you searching for the living among the dead?"...
and so on, to his post-resurrection appearance at emmaus, etc.. all of this was swept aside in favor of convincing those in attendance that they had no business in partaking of the emblematic bread and wine.

david can't xsplane of the gibbering body is urging jw's to go out in field serve-us today to target their bible studies, return visits, and inactive jw's for a second time with the invitation to the annual rejection of christ - just in case they've "forgotten the date" or "lost their invitation.
go to 1 minute 45 seconds for the marketing speech.. https://tv.jw.org/#en/mediaitems/webhomeslider/pub-jwb_201904_14_video.
could the cult's hierarchy be fearing reduced attendances this year - especially of "interested ones"?.

i just wanted to share my excitement.
for the first time in almost 30 years, i am not attending the memorial tonight.
instead, i am spending the evening at home, celebrating with a glass of scotch.

after a cruise-ship suffers a terrible shipwreck, the famous beauty and actress scarlett johansson finds herself alone on a deserted island.
hours pass, and eventually only one other person makes it to the island to join her - a man.. they didn't know each other before the shipwreck, but he of course knew of her due to her beauty & fame.. at the beginning it was hard, but as time passed, this guy learned how to provide food and shelter and started taking care of her.
she took care of him in return, and eventually she started to really feel a bond with the guy.

the talk outline issued the usual warning - only those mentioned in revelation 14:1 are allowed to partake of the bread & wine.. revelation 14:1 - then i saw, and look!
the lamb standing on mount zion, and with him 144,000 who have his name and the name of his father written on their foreheads.
for active/fading jw's - did your bible reasoning/logic/instincts tell you that the following interpretation makes sense, or did you simply surrender your thinking abilities to others who claimed to be better informed than you?.
