Last night, besides announcing someone was disf. and attacks on the Catholic Church's doctrines, they gave the April report of finances....
Their expenses $900 and some... the collections were $500 and some, and they sent $300 and some to WT... they have a $300 some deficit. They have to pay $12 at the bank; I was wondering if they have bounced a check :-) So.... they have in their pocket $500 and some... they asked to be GENEROUS on last night's donations.
There were only few people, half of when I last went three years ago.
Circumstances brought me there to be with my daughter last night.
After the meeting, one of the speakers approached me to ask my opinion about a video they were all commenting.... I told him, "why do you want the opinion of a 'worldly person'?" He seemed surprised of my answer... I told him, "why are you surprised? that's all you have been talking about tonight referring to me, I'm worldly; if I wanted to comment, I would have raised my hand, wouldn't I?" I also told him, that I set myself up to hear the offensive way they attack the Catholic Church... and because of it, I wasn't going to be arguing with him, only to know that he wouldn't agreed....
When they announced the name of the desf., I turn to my daughter and ask her loudly, (in pourpuse) "who is that?" and to a lady in the back I asked her: "who betrayed her on this hall?" she looked surprised and she said, "we tried to keep our congregation clean". So I said, "if that is the case, how come you let me in, you know I'm one of the worldly". ( This took place while my daughter was in charge of cleaning the hall, he, he).
I could see the difference in my approach last night from before, thanks to all of you guys here... I liked a couple that I disliked before. He is an elder... (my daughters mentors, good!); they are the only ones that looked worldly to me... maybe they come to this forum. :-) !!!
That's all folks! your friend,
