Keep in Expectation as Jehovah's Day Nears!!!!!!!!!
I'm sure I've heard that somewhere before!
Funnily enough I ran into a JW, (one that doesn't ignore me)and she was telling me how 'wonderful and encouraging' the Assembly had been this weekend.
'Ah! That's nice for you', I smiled politely.
What can you say!!??
One more thing....'Jehovah Tenderly cares for Older Ones'! My Ass he does.
When my husbands grandfather was sick and dying......after being a JW for 91 years:
1) No visits during his illness
2) No one turned up for his funeral...including JW family. The only person there other than us and the undertaker was a Church of England vicar who said he would 'Never allow someone to go on their final journey on their own'. Jehovah sent none of his representatives despite Grandpa's lifelong service and financial contributions to building KHs!
3) At the Memorial service, a few elderly sisters turned up and immeadiate family and that was it!!!!
As usual the Assembly Program is full of BS!! To call it anything else would be an out and out lie!
Wow! Blondie! That's a bit different than what ours is going to be! Here's jes a sample:
2006 "DELIVERANCE AT HAND" DISTRICT CONVENTION DAY 1 MORNING 9:30 Theme Music from Star Wars 9:40 Song No. 91 and the first of many boring Prayers 9:50 Be Attentive to Deliverance, starring Burt Reynolds Ned Betty and Jon Voight 10:50 Song No. 40 and Announcement telling you you better not have any food from outside vendors there. 11:00 How the Governing Body kicks out of Bethel "the Poor One Crying for Help" 11:20 Behold "the Abounding Wealth of the Organization" 11:40 KEYNOTE ADDRESS:
WILL HARRY POTTER DIE AT THE END OF BOOK 7?"
12:10 Song No. 59 and Concluding Prayer, beer, and cigarette
lol Mary, that was a good one.
Thanks for posting that, blondie. What happens to a JW if they don't show up for the district assemblies? Do the people at their individual KH know and find out? Do they get a "talking-to?" Also, in our area, there are assemblies on more than one weekend. How do they decide which weekend to go to? Do they all travel together, or just as individual families?
Wow! Mary! Tha's one excellent assembly programme. Where is this one being held? I wanna go and I wanna go NOW!!!!
p.s. Do I need to bring all my 'Harry Potter' books with me for reference?
11:10 Accept Jehovah's Authority - Reject an Independent Spirit = Yes, dont think for yourself. Be good and put all those evil doubts to the back of your mind. Even the ones about the 2 witness policy & also, dont give asecond thought to letting your child heomorage to death. If you have doubts about these cruel & insane policies then you are spiritualy weak & have went down the same independant path as Adam & Eve. Now go purify yourself you evil sinner.
11:30 DRAMA: To Whose Authority do You Submit? = Obey the elders instructions, even when they simply dont make sense. Also, read all our re-hashed articles in the tower and dont even think about questioning it, even when every natural fibre in your body disagrees with some points. Do this and you will be submiting to Jehovahs/FDS/elders/jw parents, blah, blah, blah.......authority.
Intermision = Go and have some encouragement/gossip
i was thinking just then as someone already pointed out, it sounds just like every previous convention i've been to.
