    A Bible student living deep in the interior of Guyana near the Moruka River studies by mail. She strongly desired to be united in pure worship with Jehovah’s Witnesses on the night of the Memorial of Christ’s death. At great expense she rented a dugout canoe and with her 13-year-old son and 12-year-old daughter paddled 21 hours to the nearest congregation in Charity. The journey entailed traveling the Moruka River out to the Atlantic Ocean and paddling back inland again on the Pomeroon River. She started out at 9:30 p.m. and arrived at 6:20 p.m. the next day, stopping for just one hour to rest...

    Then she sat patiently, did not partake, nor did anyone else in the congregation and it was all over in 45 minutes. One sister spoke to her, but only to ask why she was not at ALL the meetings!

    ...After the Memorial she had to return right away, as the canoe was rented at a daily rate. She is an unbaptized publisher and at the time of the Memorial was four months pregnant!

    When I first read this, I thought it said she rented a donut with her 13-year old son and paddled 21 hours.........I figured the donut was to ward off starvation or to throw to the crocs they encountered on the way.........LOL!!

    oh, i'm going to the memorial this year. in my street clothes and all. in another province close by. and maybe make a night of it. drop some e and totally trip out on the whole event, and get a little euphoric with all the wits. and maybe, you know, dig jesus for an hour or so. oh ya! and draw some little comics of jesus and the apostles and some miracles, and him dying on the *stake*, and maybe the transfiguration. oh, for sure one of judas with his guts all splattered on some rocks and hanging from a tree. yes!! and belt out some kingdumb melodies. and then see if any of the pioneer sisters wanna take me out for some beers after, and they can count their time, and i can totally have some fun.

    Take me with you my lord!!!!

    $hit...I'd go just to drink the wine, and then start raising hell when they tell me I'm not worthy.

    ''What do you mean I'm not annointed? I'm saved beeyotch! I've been blessed by His all Holy FSM!!!!''

    luv, jojo

    Kool aid man is planning to attend again this year with his "DEMONSTRATIVE GESTURE" (protest signs). Anyone who would like to join us please let me know. It was fun last year to see the Elders running outside with cell phones in hand calling the police. Little did they know we already had a written permit and the police kept checking on us to make sure they didn't cause any trouble! I'm not sure who they were calling, maybe warning the Witnesses who were coming not to look at the signs. We could not believe the "un-theocratic" behavior of GOD'S people. It was very successful and I am sure many are thinking twice who they will invite this year. NEW LIGHT!--Nisan 14 has now become DEMONSTRATIVE GESTURE night! Hey Minimus, we'd love to have you join us. At least you could tell your mother you went to the memorial!

    Hey All,

    When I saw this post, I thought of this scripture...

    (Matthew 10:32-33)

    32 "Everyone, then, that confesses union with me before men, I will also confess union with him before my Father who is in the heavens; 33 but whoever disowns me before men, I will also disown him before my Father who is in the heavens.

    Isn't that what's done at the Kingdumb hell every year at the "Memorial". if you do a little research, you'll find that this little ritual (the "Memorial") is Satanic in nature and origen. Hmmm...

    Think about it, the majority of JW's refuse Christ at the "Memorial" every year by not accepting the symbols of the "New Covenant"

    Thus denieing Christ and the covenat arrangement.

    Something to consider if you're a JW and think of youself as a follower of Christ.

    If my mother knew I went to the Memorial with koolaid man, she'd probably die right there on the spot and find out whether she was really of the "other sheep" or the 144,000.

    What color suit should I buy?

    I guess something that matchs the color of the wine

  • minimus

    JH, are you going this year??

  • JH

    Nope !!!

    I went last year, and I fell into a trap.

    This is a true story...

    In outback Australia, on a long boring flight, a pilot of a light plane threw a copy of the Watch Tower out of the window after he had finished reading it.

    It just happened to land near a tribe of nomadic aborigines who found it. They did not know what it was but knew that it was something very holy. It became an object of worship.

    Soon after, in their wanderings, they came across an abandoned Nissan 14.........All it needed was a new gear box....

    Bloody hell.....look at the time.......I'm off to bed....Maybe someone else can finish this true story.
