    This Saturday is the Branch visit of Mark Sanderson in the Selters German Bethel.

    There will be a video streaming for all the congs.

    Some of you might have heard branch visit talks of Sanderson.

    Will there be something special or controversial?

    I am not sure if I should attend even if it's just for noting or recording some controversial stuff. Would be hard though, 3 hours of wasted time. Probably better sleep in

    I cannot go, I don't want to puke on the person sitting in front of me, sorry.

    That is something I almost did the last time the CO was in the congregation when he said that the head of a woman is the man and the head of the man are the elders in the congregation and the head of the elders is the GB. He stopped there and left out Jesus and Jehovah.

    driving force, force yourself, and don't take it seriously, after all, when can you see a comedian/ front man, that believes in a talking snake and that pretends (or worse, really believes) he will rule the cosmos one day? soon?

    you dont have to laugh, just grin, aka smile of approval --l grin and bear it

    BSW: what do german jws think about the big bethel being build in britain? putin ready to pull another Magdeburg?

    When I said I was thinking of going I was just talking about the local congregation because I believe there is going to be a live video stream. So no Rock Star autograph. Let me see how I feel on Saturday.

    As for the big Bethel being built in the UK, I cannot make a valid comment. In the congregation I was in, anything outside the congregations territory was generally not discussed. Theocratic things were also generally not discussed, after all its not really allowed.

    One example, I was talking with a group of brothers at a get together and I explicitly said they should all read Mt. 24, and consider every verse in context, and nothing more. One brother talked to me later and said I should not be encouraging the brothers to read the bible on their own.

    If it's the same as the visit we just has in the UK, it's mostly inoffensive stuff. No tight pants comments.

    One daft part was where they were talking about law victories, he numbered how many they'd win, but then said, we do lose SOME, but that it doesn't matter cos we FEEL Jah is with us... Hmm.

    WWorse was a part on depression, mentioned a lady had put a note in the contribution box saying this was meant to be a suicide note, but so up built by the program, she decided not to. . He said how many feel these feelings of depression , which is nice to acknowledge, but there was not ONE mention of getting HELP professionally.

    Just that nothing can separate from love of Christ. Even death. Yeh, very encouraging. The perfect opportunity to help take away the stigma of seeking help for mental health issues, wasted.
