This week is the super special week of activity with one of our favorite JW Celebrities...THE CIRCUIT OVERSEER!!!
In last night's talk, he gave sooooo much encouragement...just hearing him made me want to fall to my knees and worship him! Oh no...sorry...that kind of honor should only be shown to JESUS. Wait!!!, sorry again. I mean JEHOVAH.
Anyway his last "story" of the night had to do with 9/11. He reminded us of how it was on a Tuesday (because I'm sure many of us forgot). It was also the week that the current GILEAD SCHOOL would graduate.
Leading up to the "good part", he told us of a little "tradition" the brothers there had of touring the UNITED NATIONS ("hmmm, really? Why would you even want to go there?" I wondered to myself) and the WORLD TRADE CENTER. He explained the bus tour etc. and how it all goes.
THE GOOD PART -....On this particular day (September 11, 2001) they (Gilead Graduates a few C.O.'s as well as the ENTIRE GOVERNING BODY)_ decided to go on the tour. ....****Earlier in the talk, he mentioned how ...before they left BETHEL...everyone was to meet in the lobby at a certain time exactly...but there's always ONE PERSON LATE.**** As they were visiting the WTC.... the GOVERNING BODY was about to take an elevator up (I guess ALL OF THEM WERE GOING TO HOP ON TOGETHER) and as they stood waiting for the next one up....a PLANE had crashed into the building and the elevator that they were waiting for came CRASHING DOWN THE SHAFT along with debris and fire. Everyone was evacuated to safety! (THANK GOD!! hmm)
Brother KERR (GB member I guess if I'm spelling it right) had later told him (our C.O. who I guess was there with them. b/c you know how these "stories" usually go. told in 1st person? 3rd? whatever).... he told him "This was not an attack on this country...(pause for effect)...this was an attack on JEHOVAH'S ORGANIZATION" (low-sounding gasp by audience)
Next few lines were about how we should really stay close to the organization b/c it is a protection. I few sprinkles hinting at how the GB is basically God on Earth today. Ending with comments about the events to take place for the rest of the week.
I wonder what the 14 JWs who actually died that day in that event did to deserve it. I doubt they ever misled anyone spiritually. Makes you wonder what they (GB) will come up with next???? SHEEEESH!
