As I spend more time here, things id forgotten come back, mostly bad and some I plan to share eventually.
But this one is happy, one of a sunday talk by a new elder from Nigeria in our hall. I remember the intro word for word. Id like to share it with you.
"Brothers, Sisters, newly interested ones. I know most your faces here as you know mine.
Id like to ask you all a question.
What can we learn from a goat?! (The hall fills with laughter and the elder has a grin and has a chuckle too)
Well! Let me tell you the struggle of the goats ans the goats keeper. A Goat will eat, consume, digest what ever it is given or what ever it is left no option to eat.
If the goat is fed on good,high quality food the goat will grow strong! The goat will reap you milk and off spring and live a healthy life!
If you neglect the goat it will be a very different story. You see, if you feed the goat Shit, it will become shit, but the goat will only eat the shit if lef.............."
The hall errupts in both gasps and and laughter. I was working the sound box and i had the PO say rather loud "ScruffMcBuff turn the sound off!!!" In a huge panic and rushed to the platform.
The talk was scrapped and we skipped to the watchtower.
Turns out in the elders home country "shit" is infact not a swear word and used freely!
This remains the BEST meeting i ever attended.
