    Watching young children getting disfellowshipped

    How about 'delightfully different' 7 day assemblies?

  • Garrett

    This is difficult :/

    5 - Giving talks.

    4 - 2 - 4 day assemblies. Even the 1 day assembly is torture. Sitting there listening to the same old crap. Most boring thing I've ever seen. And if you're like me, you have to pay for a hotel room and food... so... wasted money for nothing.

    3 - Field Service. I dislike waking people at 10 am on a Saturday only to be told that they are not interested, which proceeds by my preaching partner using everything in the book to over the conversation stopper. 

    2 - Personally, I haven't seen a young one get disfellowshipped, but I think that's sick. That kind of behavior towards a child will cause some severe mental harm, especially when they're in their most impressionable years.

    1 - I've only seen a handful of these. But, young ones getting baptized is just dumb. They have no idea what they're getting themselves into nor are they qualified in any way to be an "ordained minister" of God.

    @clarity OMG yes. That is the WORST thing ever. I ended up just praying while looking at my food xD

    They are all bad. Watching mentally ill people get disfellowshipped was very upsetting. It went on my list of things that make you go hmmm.

    5 Sit and listen, I always managed to get busy in other "responsibility"

    4 Waiting the Assemblies prayers to end... Especially the closing one on the last day

    3 Preparing a talk, happily a had some kind of talent for speaking in public so my lats talks were IMPROVISED with just 4-6 principal ideas and 3 Bible quotes, it was nice to hear after "oh we noticed your preparation" hahahahaha easy thing when it's been the same "information" and "Reasoning book" base all over since I had 6 or 7 years (my first public reading)

    2 Field service in the part of the world that is under the Ozone Layer Hole, I can tell you that the sun it's more dangerous and pain inflicter here than anywhere!
    1 Family Studying prior to a meeting... !!!

    I despised Saturday morning ministry.

    Assemblies and conventions became a major bore.

    I enjoyed cleaning the bathrooms.

    I hated Kingdom Hall / Assembly Hall yard maintenance.

    I hated talking to zombies after the meetings about BS.

    I loved non-Saturday morning ministry and I loved giving talks.
