    James 2:16 New King James Version (NKJV)

    16 and one of you says to them, “Depart in peace, be warmed and filled,” but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit?

    Before I spotted the beggar that everyone focused on it struck me that the younger witness was wearing some sort of hoody, certainly not dress I would have ever seen while witnessing and seems to be on a mobile phone.

    Granted I can't see the phone and he may be reading a publication intently, but that certainly looks like someone on a phone and not interested in the public at all.

    To give him credit I would have been mortified if I had to stand there with that cart.

    The organisation has completely lost its way as far as I can see. They think they are the centre of God's plans but in fact are entirely irrelevant.

    It's not easy goving money to beggers on the street, it really is a question of caution. - NH&H

    I hear you, NH&H, but I do think there are ways to help. I have got involved in a project like the San Francisco Homeless Connect.


    In a convention atmosphere, the homeless are invited to find the resources they need in a dignified environment.

    "What Does the Bible REALLY Teach?"... and not ONE BIBLE IN SIGHT!

    What is the yellow book on the top of the cart? That was thelast one I remember getting before I left.

    There are a hundred things they could be doing rather than standing on a street corner begging for money to send to the organization in New York.

    Especially since the "What Does The Bible Really Teach?" book is being revised.

    Bibles are not to be offered to non-jws....even if they ask, cost too much supposedly.

    Curious; What country was this picture taken in. The one guy

    Well observed apog. Your sound comments aside (!), I think the white-soled shoes the brother on the left is wearing are a tad too trendy-casual and the jacket worn by the brother on the right is a shade too casual also - and he seems caught up (in something on his iphone perhaps?). There needs to be a service talk on this.
