Im gonna have my own convention, Imitate Dionysus
After the 'imitate jesus' RC whats next...?
They will of course cherry pick which accounts they want to focus on from the Old Testament. I don't think Elijah and the she bear account is going to make it in. LOL
I would love to see a drama on 1 Samuel 18:27.. David took his men and killed
200 Philistines and brought back their foreskin, he was only required to bring
back 100. I would attend that convention just to see how they would spin it.
Can you picture David presenting Saul with 200 foreskins, that would be a hell
of a drama. Little old ladies sitting in the assembly, " what are those small things
they counting on stage, mushrooms? No sister, those are supposed to be foreskins.
Older sister, "what the hell".
Jehovah loves a cheerful giver
I don't think the Philistines were so cheerful, and their families. My God they
circumcised 200 of our men and we are not Jews. That's not right.
"Support the Brothers of Christ" - Convention 2016
One drama will be based on the fictional life story of the old widow who gave two small coins to the temple treasury; the other drama will be about King David allocating part of his wealth for the construction of Jehovah's temple in Jerusalem.
Public talk: "God loves a cheerful giver" - 2 Cor 9:7
Romans 15:27 - "...in fact they are indebted to them, for if the Gentiles have come to share in their spiritual blessings, they ought also to serve them in material blessings."
The "other sheep" have been spiritually fed by the "spiritual Israel", so they must now serve them in return with material blessings. Contributions to the Organization will now be part of the monthly report slip. Whomever is found inactive or irregular in the privilege of contributing financially will face reproach and won't be eligible for congregational privileges.
How fitting "story of the old widows". I do not believe this is an example on
how to give. It's an example of how the scribes were "devouring widows
houses. Mark 12:40.
What's next? more GB singing at the annual meeting!
Next is the annual meeting in October. I wonder if there will be any "new light" regarding the two witness rule...
The broadcasts will be from a prison cell ( we can but hope)
