Edit - "The Days Of Noah" damn!
Long story short - I need to go to bed!
I was in Edinburgh today with my wife (football, coffee, walks, food, cinema) and I always try to take 10 minutes to have a chat with the JWs on the trolley in the "big city".
I challenged an older guy who turned out to be an pioneer about the generation. He insisted that he was the same generation as his own grandmother! I replied in the only way possible with derisive humour.
Anyway what struck me was how he kept bringing up the generation of Noah. I got sidetracked at this point by dismissing Noah as a myth, but I am wondering if the 120 years of Noah's ministry is the current hope of JWs making 2034 the new end-point? Has anybody else got a this from conversations with relatives or on the street?
By the way please, if you can spare 10 minutes always make the effort to discombobulate the trolley dollies. Today's victim suddenly had to rush to get his trolley returned but he will never forget our chat I'm sure. Right at the end I told him I was a DFd former elder/pioneer. He was horrified and insisted he can't talk to me. I reminded him he already had been talking to me for half an hour.
