Hardly the topic of the week, but I just remembered this one.
A new sister was complaining to another about the heat, crowd and discomfort of the district assemblies held at the ballpark. The older sister stated that it was a sign of Jehovah's love for his people; he was getting us ready for the horrific trials of Armegeddon.
When the young sister mentioned this to me, I said, "Well I guess Jehovah doesn't think much of the ones in __________, US. They are sitting in an air conditioned theatre right now."
She remained silent until I further stated, "And do you really think that -anything- is going to get us ready for Armegeddon?"
She thought for a moment and said, "I'm going to _________ next year instead".
Oh, and am I the only one who cringed in despair when it was announced that Jehovah was blessing us with a four day convention next year in stead of a three day one? (To wild applause, I might add.)
