I was thinking about this the other day, and wondering what others felt about the District Convention. Namely, what was the main thing you wanted from it? A few I remember were these.
1. Number one every single year was that I wanted new information on when Armageddon was coming and how close we were to the end. I wanted someone to get up on that stage and say in a serious manner, "Brothers, I bring new light to you today that may frighten you as your life will never be the same from this day forward. Recently the Governing Body has come into new information that shows the end is not only going to be in this lifetime, but this year and the preaching work is over. All who could be saved, are saved and from this moment forward it is about making it to the end and surviving in what will be a troubling time." I know I was not alone, many wanted to hear something like this.
2. When I was single, I was there to meet other single people and perhaps find someone to marry. Lets face it, when you dated someone, it was with the goal of marriage. So you were not looking for someone to date. I was one horny young person at one time and those young people at the conventions were all on hormone overdrive, admit it or not.
So why did you go, besides the pressure to do so?
