  1. Past hour
  2. I speculate it will be about an hour long. I know that isn't scriptural but that's what I think. Keep on the watching it!
  3. Possibly why the JW.org homepage changed to our vaccination stance! [emoji15] The Article: https://nypost.com/2021/09/23/teachers-union-rips-city-halls-covid-preparedness-in-poll/amp/
  4. 8 days away! Share your speculations here 😁
  5. My JW.ORG is always on Safari even though the new IOS-15 allows me to make Chrome my default browser. I can use Chrome to get to the website if I open Chrome first and choose the JW.ORG from inside the browser. but when I close it and reopen it the browser goes back to Safari.
  6. one video may be uploaded tomorrow, not connected to the 2021 conventions, earlier. An older video. Stay tuned!
  7. Yesterday
  8. What happens when you're hospitalised with COVID-19 in Australia. https://www.sbs.com.au/news/what-happens-when-you-re-hospitalised-with-covid-19-in-australia/66fcfe64-68da-4c6c-98bf-24890214aa7e I think it’s handy to know what to expect for us in Australia who are facing this virus really for the first time unrestrained in the community. Best to be prepared.
  9. I think they're all uploaded, aren't they? Go to LIBRARY --> VIDEOS --> Programs and Events, and scroll down to 2021 Powerful by Faith! Convention. Are we missing any in there?
  10. Can we expect a new video about conventions tomorrow to be uploaded at Jw.org ? 🤗🤗🤗🤗
  11. Woww! I didn't know Beethoven could sing… especially like that. Different Beethoven.
  12. They lived in a patriarchal society where it was tradition that parents or a trusted servant selected a marriage mate. This does not mean the grown up child had no say. Sometimes, they did chose their marriage mates for themselves. (Ge 29:18) either way, it seems the final decision laid with the people getting married, not the parents. When you think about it, the instances mentioned in the Bible where parents selected a marriage mate are relatively few. It was a tradition, not a god-given authority.
  13. The parents have no responsibility for the decisions their children make. Mark 7 is talking about something else.
  14. parents may decide to use their authority to help their children to make good marriage choices.we know Abraham played a very significant role in choosing a wife for isaac (Isaac was no doubt an adult). So i think until a child finally gets married,the parents are scripturally authorised to have a say in their marriage choices or other decisions. unless if the parents choose not to intervene,or better still,the adult child may respectfully appeal to their parents to allow them to make their own choices so that they can be happy in the marriage.
  15. Yes, I think it’s been the case. Across Sydney and Melbourne, 38 people with COVID have died at home In both cities, the victims were largely from non-English speaking and migrant backgrounds Just over half of those who died at home in Sydney were only diagnosed with COVID-19 post-mortem One doctor said: “A lot of people wanted to stay home because they knew if they go to hospital they will be on their own, they wouldn't have any support persons," "In the best of times, hospitals are a scary place. And in the COVID time, it's even scarier, it's lonely. And people don't want to go through that on their own. "And maybe [another reason is] because they underestimate the degree of sickness." He said patients can deteriorate quickly at home and it was a "tragedy" so many died before making it to the hospital. "They transformed from one day that they are managing OK, but they're a little bit tired and have a bit of a cough, slight headache, sweating," he said. "And within hours, that level of oxygen drops." https://www.abc.net.au/news/2021-09-27/australians-dying-at-home-with-covid-19-sydney-melbourne/100482978
  16. Would not the account in Mark speak contrary to the "no responibility for them"? (Mark 7:11-13) . . .‘If a man says to his father or his mother: “Whatever I have that could benefit you is corban (that is, a gift dedicated to God),”’ 12 you no longer let him do a single thing for his father or his mother. 13 Thus you make the word of God invalid by your tradition that you have handed down. . . .
  17. As far as we know, Jesus Christ wasn’t married. He made sure his mother was taken care of, and hence gave her the honour befitting her. Nowhere does the Bible in any way indicate that he was an adult who could make his own decisions simply because his mother and father let him. In some societies, becoming an adult means you have reached a certain age, according to the law, but it is also a gradual matter when you take on more and more responsibility. Eventually, you leave home and set up your own. In other societies, you reach a milestone after which you are considered an adult. Either way, from now on, you make decisions that are yours and yours alone. Your parents have no say in them, and also no responsibility for them. No human, not even a parent, is the head of a single adult Christian man or woman. Christ is.
  18. Monday, September 27 I received much joy and comfort on hearing of your love.—Philem. 7. The apostle Paul was humble, so he sought and received encouragement from his friends. He did not worry about being viewed as a weak person if he acknowledged that he had been comforted by others during times of distress. (Col. 4:7-11) When we humbly acknowledge that we need encouragement, our brothers and sisters will gladly give us the support we need. Paul knew that the Scriptures would comfort him. (Rom. 15:4) They would also give him wisdom to face any trial. (2 Tim. 3:15, 16) When imprisoned in Rome for the second time, Paul felt that his death was near. He asked Timothy to come to him quickly and bring “the scrolls.” (2 Tim. 4:6, 7, 9, 13) Why? Because those scrolls were likely portions of the Hebrew Scriptures that Paul could use in his personal Bible study. When we imitate Paul by regularly studying God’s Word, Jehovah will use the Scriptures to soothe us—no matter what trials we face. w20.02 23-24 ¶14-15
  19. It makes sense when children get married, i can think of scriptures to support that. but about not being under you parents authority when you're an unmarried adult doesn't seem scriptural to me,since i cannot think of any verse to support that. I think a better way to put it is that parents may decide to give unmarried adult children freedom to make their own decisions (which is a fine thing on the part of the parents). but it will seem presumptous if unmarried adult children declare themselves free while their parents are still alive. It seems logical that parental authority only ceases when; >adult children get married or >when parents are not alive or >when parents use their authority in a way that opposes Jehovah.
  20. My JW ONLINE LIBRARY always opens in the SAFARI BROWSER by DEFAULT! Can it be changed to GOOGLE BROWSER or another browser?
  21. Due to Myalgic Encephalomyelitis aka CFS in the US caused low blood volumes and low blood pressure which in turn caused heart problem ( blockages leading to several heart attacks - 1st was a total arrest ). After 1st heart attack I noticed my at rest heart rate was below 60 quite often below 50. Blood pressure actually went up some to mid range after 1st heart attack. I have had this illness manifesting itself since Thursday Feb 12/04. Yes you do know the day. Here is link for Official 2003 Canadian ME/CFS Diagnostic/Treatment protocol. Needs updating. http://www.mefmaction.com/index.php?view=article&catid=66%3Aconsensus&id=215%3Aconsensus-documents&format=pdf&option=com_content&Itemid=262

  24. No. The Bible does NOT. When you become an adult and move out and/or when you marry, your parents no longer have any authority over their children. If a woman is out living on her own, her head is the Christ- not her fleshly father.
  25. American president Joe Biden is visiting a Glasgow hospital. Ho enters a ward full of patients with no obvious signs of injury of illness. He greets one. The patient replies : "Fair fa your honest sonsie face, Great chieftain of the pudding race,Aboon them a ye take our place. Painch,tripe or thaim. Aslangs my arm." Biden is confused, so he just grins and moves on to the next patient. The next patient responds : "Some hae meat an canna eat, And some wad meat that want it, But we hae meat an we can eat, So let the Lord be thankful." Even more confused, and his grin now rictus-like, the President moves on to the next patient, who immediately begins to chant : "Wee sleekit,cowering,timorous beasty, O the panic in thy breastie, Thou needna start awa sae hastie, Wi bickering brattle." Now seriously troubled, Biden turns to the accompanying doctor and asks, "Is this a psychiatric ward ?" "No" says the doctor " Its our serious burns unit ".

      Enjoying our Circuit Assembly today (with Circuit Overseer)... it's lunch break now.
      One baptized in our congregation (which happened yesterday), a young brother. He was baptized by his dad! It was likely in the family's own pool, but obviously the two of them gave each other a hug afterward!
      Waiting for the afternoon sessions now...

      Nice field service morning. Got a letter or 2 written. Had about 8 (?) people for the meeting for service and when everyone left it just left the host and his wife and me. 
      But the wonderful thing that happened close to noon, was the sister and I had a great conversation. It brought us together even closer as friends. 
      I told her how Zoom has brought me closer to the friends, where she is struggling with not having the physical contact. and struggles with conversation.
      We even made plans to get together on Zoom to get some association time.
      Friends, you’ll never know how much thus meant to me. But it meant a lot to her as well.
      She mentioned how she’d love to have a few sisters over for a bonfire, but with COVID, she’s not sure how that would go down.
      I then said how Ross and I have gotten together for a bonfire and camped out in her tent. I said Ross needs that friendship too. ❤️ ☺️ But I sure look forward to it as well. ☺️☺️☺️

      Well, this summer continues to be deadly. 
      A 40 year old man (a local) left his home apparently to go hiking. He didn’t tell anyone how long he’d be gone or anything.
      They found his truck Tuesday morning and found his body this morning. Apparently, he fell from a cliff. 😢

      Sorry I have to ask it.
      Did any Aussie's feel the Earthquake?
      I was unloading a semi-truck at Harvey Norman in Geelong, saw the roller door shake and thought it was a gust of wind.

      This summer has been the deadliest tourist year. 
      First, we had a guy climb over a fence at the Pictured Rocks overlook and fall to his death.
      Then, in Marquette county not far from here, a guy wanted to take better photos so he climbed down a cliff they have there and fell to his death. 
      Last night, 2 people were out on Lake Superior. They never should have been out there on such a windy night. 
      Sometime last night during the search they found one of the kayaks. Sometime this morning they found a body. 
      When you’re not from the area, it’s best to check things out, or heed warnings because it can end very quickly

      Last I developed a serious case of pneumonia. Because of the covi/hospital cituation I put off going to the emrgency a little too long and required immediate hospitalization. No beds to be had on the Oregon Coast. Nearest  bed was 100 miles away. Ambulance was ordered, they too are busy, it took 5 hours for them to show up. Two hour run to the Hospital in Spring field. Checked in at 11:30 PM.
      The worst part besides haveing to do it without my wife's presence was the two hour ambulace ride. I was told it would be very uncomfortable and it was. Given the choice of the ambulance trip or having my fingernails pulled out one by one, I think I would lean toward the fingernails.
