    If you can count the number of times you have prayed today, then you haven't prayed enough.

    The reasons some brothers and sisters give for not being at the meetings are the very reasons they should be there.

    We need to be at the meetings to "incite to love and fine works."—Hebrews 10:24. But how can you incite if you're not in sight?

  1. 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...?

    How much has changed

    See the PM I sent you.
  3. Well, I'm not one of the "smart guys." But I think it would be safe to say that parts 2 & 3 would be at the same January link, even if there are two weeks between parts 1 and 2. For example, in December we had the Gilead Graduation. But parts 1, 2 & 3 were all at December's link, even though there was a similar two-week gap between parts 1 and 2. Either way, it should come up within the next six months.
  4. All right. Now that I am looking at it right side up, I figured it out. That's Cebuano.
  5. Well I'm retired too. It's been a year now, although I still work as a replacement from time to time if someone wants a day off. I never wanted to stop completely. I'm not in the US though, so no 401k's here. We have RRSP's (registered retirement savings plan), which look roughly the same. Even if I wasn't still working once in a while, I still think the Canadian government treats us retirees well here. Of course, I still have to watch my expenses and stay out of debt (so far I'm succeeding), but I'm mostly comfortable. Thank you for bringing up the subject @Miss Bea.
  6. I am no longer in a French congregation, but when I was there it was still called a "rendez-vous de service." As far as I know it still goes by the same name.
  7. Most here have already answered your question, but if I may add a couple of things...? The moderators do their best to keep this site free of unsavoury creatures like apostates. But just like you and I, they do not personally know everyone who signs up as a member. Because of that, they cannot control who becomes a member here. But they can control content. If they spot a post that looks questionable, they can take the appropriate action. But what if no moderators see the suspicious post? This is where you and I come in. At the top right of every post, there is a "report" link that you can click on if you think the post should be checked out. That will immediately alert any moderators who are online at the time, and they will look into it. They will not necessarily delete the post in question, for maybe that person is a little depressed at the time and their post could be simply "wild talk."(Job 6:3) They will simply "keep an eye" on that person's future posts to see their behaviour over a period of time, and act accordingly. However, if both you and I catch sight of a questionable post, and we both "report" it, from what I understand that post will immediately be hidden until such time that a moderator can look it over. (Please let me know if I'm wrong on that, mods.) We're well protected here, and that can be seen in another way too. The following is a true story. A few years ago, one of the moderators here sent me a private message. As a moderator, he was able to see the name of my congregation in my profile. He said that someone had applied for membership, and had written that her congregation was the same one that I happened to be in! However there was something about her application that didn't add up (I don't know what it was), and he wanted to verify something. He gave me the applicant's name , and asked if she was really in my congregation. I had never heard of her! I think you can easily figure out what the moderators did with that application! (Some time later I happened to see this "sister's" Facebook page. There was nothing overtly suspicious about it, but her "Freind" list was filled with known apostates!) I was happy that I had contributed in a small way to the safety of our haven.
  8. Hhmm. There doesn't seem to be a separate topic for Brother Lösch's interview: Maintaining Unity Under Ban. So I'll put this in here. I found it interesting that it's his voice in the German version of that video too, overdubbed. (Nein. Ich spreche kein Deutsch.) How about other languages he speaks? Well, he speaks Romanian, but that version is not his voice. And he also speaks Italian, but the Italian version is not uploaded at the time of this posting.
  9. Seems to work for me... http://dwsilver.com/Wallpaper/
  10. That program was first mentioned in this topic... Brother Brumley's part starts at the 1 hour 55 minute mark in the YouTube video.
  11. New update (a small one again)... Watchtower (public edition) 2019 #2 Watchtower (study edition) up to April 2019 Awake 2019 #1 Mtg Workbook up to April 2019 other stuff...?

    You can use this one if you'd like... 👏 Or even... How about... Or... Or if you want a full house... Take your pick.
  13. Oo, napansin ko iyon. Yes, I noticed that. I kind of thought Danilo would pick that one out; it's the national dialect of his country. That being said, how many of us here can identify the country (or countries) where each of the 24 languages in that song is spoken. Let me try a couple: (German, French, and Polish are just too easy.) Chichewa - Mozambique, Malawi, Zambia, others Amharic - Ethiopia Nzema - Ghana, Côte d'Ivoire Tigrinya - Eritrea, Ethiopia, others . . . EDIT: I just realized the last couple of posts are in the wrong topic! January 2019 is supposed to be the Annual Meeting, not Gilead.
