    I like your attitude.
  3. I hear ya. I've heard those too. One elder I knew always used to forget names. Every meeting he would forget the name of someone he knows well. We all used to wonder what's going to happen if his wife puts up her hand, and...?

    I guess I'm an outlier in that while I appreciate the changes and love a lot of them - tech and electronics for the win!!! - other things are not my particular cuppa tea. I'm not a fan of the shorter talks/symposium style. They're so short that by the time I'm really grooving along with the theme and my notes, we're moving on to another talk. Now, I don't have attention span issues... I'm more annoyed when things move from subject to subject quickly. I LOVE when we get those 45 min talks on the Broadcast sometimes. It allows the brother to really develop the material, I can focus, relax and take it all in knowing he won't disappear from the stage any time soon! While I do enjoy the videos very much, I can't really take notes on those at all. I am more an aural learner than visual and once the videos are over, I often forget what the message was. I'll remember the graphics, etc, but the lessons -- I just have to feel like watching them again when they're released for us (closed captions would really be terrific!). When I can take notes for an entire talk, I will remember most of what I heard. I do LOVE what we've done on a musical level -- new arrangements for the assemblies are the highlights for me. ❤️ I like the format of the Midweek Meeting... but I do still miss the Book Study and the old meal arrangements for many reasons.

    The focus on reading scripture in field service.
  11. Celine Deon is such a beautiful woman and has the voice to match.

    All the things already mentioned, also all the publications in soft cover instead of the hard little books. Also, the beautiful Workbooks that replace the KM's, with the new format, pictures, colors, scriptures, love them. No more offering subs or asking for donations at the door.. Love the smaller tracts and calling cards.. So many things in electronic form instead of hard copy to save carrying a lot of weight. I used to carry a book bag that was so full of literature it caused my service partner to say, my, you're ready for anything aren't you..

    Agree with Dages! You guys already mentioned so many things I love too. Just want to add the monthly broadcasting and that we can see the whole Anual meeting program and all the Gilead graduations. A wonderful provision I love so much! ❤️

    Regarding the convention music, if you’re referring to the interludes, those are available on JW Library under each respective RC section. Go to JW Library > Media > Spiritual Programs > Tap on the respective music videos for each RC.

    I LOVE closed captions..I'm hoping too one day they will have them.. we watch the meetings on the tv and pc. No problem hearing the speaker, but can't hear the comments even with the mike
  18. Just another of Satan's signs and wonders to distract and mislead us. Ho hum.

    I enjoy our feeding arrangement - people staying in their seats and eating a simple lunch ... instead of the time consuming process of making the meals so the friends could stand in long lines to get them ... the way we do it now is SO much better! As a side thought ... we have a Sister in our Hall that is only partially happy for the large screens. She was very excited when we first got them because she is nearly deaf and cannot hear the program even with a headset on. However, she is expert at reading lips. She tries to sit on the front row at the RC so she can see the screens with no one blocking her view. She can now see the speakers AND read their lips. She has really enjoyed that aspect of the screens. However, as things have progressed and we have gotten more videos during the program, she is not as happy with those. I never thought about it ... but, as she pointed out, during the videos, the people on them talk to each other or there is a "narration" that she cannot really hear - as opposed to the speaker facing the camera where she can read the lips. Now, if they would add "closed captions" she would probably like that

      Wow! We just never know when those special things will co e along...

  24. Wednesday, January 16 We should love, not in word or with the tongue, but in deed and truth.—1 John 3:18. We should be willing to perform acts of love for our brothers “in secret,” or out of the limelight, when this is possible. (Matt. 6:1-4) We should also take the lead in showing honor to others. (Rom. 12:10) Jesus set the pattern in honoring others by performing the lowliest of tasks. (John 13:3-5, 12-15) We may have to work hard to develop the humility needed to show honor to others in this way. Even the apostles could not fully understand Jesus’ actions until they received holy spirit. (John 13:7) We can show honor to others by not thinking too much of ourselves because of our education, material possessions, or privileges in Jehovah’s service. (Rom. 12:3) And rather than envying those who receive praise, we rejoice with them even if we feel that we deserve equal honor or a share of the credit for what was done. w17.10 9 ¶9-10

    Not a bad seat in the house! And, I do not miss those lines in order to get that new publication. The videos. Of what kind, no matter. I love them. Oh, the music interludes.(?) I almost look foreword to them as much as the program. I just want peace and quiet to enjoy them. BTY, has there been a way to download our convention music that I missed? I love the treatment of older ones. Almost melts my heart. How Jehovah feels about us just permeates the atmosphere. I just feel, “What have I done to be treated so wonderfully?” Grew old in Jehovah’s organization. Nothing better. The organization, not this growing old business. But, if you have to do it, this is the place to be...

    I agree. During the RC's at times I look over to where the actual speaker is (instead of looking at the screens) and he seems so far away and I ask myself how I ever did it back then to concentrate if I couldn't see the facial expressions of the speakers or the participants. Also, I like the length of the talks now. Both the public talks - 30 minutes and the assembly talks which are limited to no more than 15 minutes on average. I also enjoy the new meeting format (CLM). I also enjoy the new technology tools that we have for meetings, field service, and personal study. (Like JW Library)
