I still attend meetings to make things easier at home with my wife.
Don't tell me to grow a pair, that's part of keeping the pair happy.
But anyway... Last meeting one of the Minion Servants comes up
and says that he wants very much to go in service together this
Summer. Never mind the heat wave we've been having in New
England, he wants to do some door to door "like in the old days".
I haven't gone door to door in a couple of years nor have I turned
a service time slip for the same amount of time although I have
gone on some calls in service to keep up appearences, and end
up giving a witness about Jesus Christ and the meaning of his
"commands" for us today... Ok, so I said "fine" yeah, I'll go with
you on a Saturday when the heat wave gets over . You should
have seen his face light up, must have made his day. (If he can
be seen with me in service he's going to earn a few browny
points with the elders, I'm sure.)
But... getting back to why I'm writing this topic... the quote that
serves as the title of this here mini-rant about being cornered to
go in "field service" is by none other than Charles Darwin. YUP!
Although I still believe in creation, I'm leaning towards the fact
that God may have used and is continuing to use evolution to
make life and to populate this earth with wonderful examples
of well adapted organisms that can thrive in this Marvel of a
Blue Marble. After opening my eyes to TTATT I'm more aware
than ever of the waste of time JWs make for the benefit and
praise of a Publishing House and Real Estate Holdings company
posing as a religion... Oh, the waste of precious hours of life!
"A man who dares to waste one hour of time has not discovered the value of life." -- by Charles Darwin.
