    i live in Nyc AND DAD JW CALLED ME CRYING ABOUT a hall that has about 500 jws going down to 2 congs

    In the area I live in there was a brother "lobbying" for the three congs to become one a couple years back.

    The amount of butthurt that ensued over the mere suggestion of consolidating three congregations that averaged 40-50 attendance figures for mid week meetings shocked to me honest.

    When you think of all the actual tragedies in the world, WT selling off a few halls doesn't even rate a mention.

    He's sad now but you can assure him it will pass.

    Did he say why they are going down to 2 congregations? Have numbers attending dropped?

    i thought--for a moment--his "crong" was some sort of kinky underwear.

    500 or 50 ?

    Is it because bethelites are leaving NYC with the big Brooklyn sell off??

    I don't want to make assumptions, so I'll check first: were they tears of sadness or joy?

    He will get over, in the cases where I have seen mergers people are eventually assimilated.

    Shouldn't they be happy? That's what they claim it's supposed to have when there are no people left to preach to. Never mind, they are full of --it and it shows.
