Running man has posted his account of an eight day assembly from the 1960s.
What I would like to know is, what was the purpose in having EIGHT DAYS for the assembly?
It was a test of endurance for people to sit in stadiums 12 hours or more a day, exposed to the heat of the sun and becoming sun burned during the day, and shivering from the cold of the evening.
And for what purpose? Under those conditions, people remembered very little of what was said, and after the first day or so would be looking at the convention program just to see how many more talks left before they could leave.
Actually, what people remembered from the conventions is how painful they were to attend!
And I have heard that at one time the Watchtower held conventions that lasted even LONGER!
