  1. But isn't it July 3 .....somewhere???!!...........pleeeeeaaassse?
  2. I also listen to all the songs while driving to work. I plug my phone into the car's speakers and sing as LOUD as I want! There's no need to ever turn the radio on any more. It's wonderful. Especially when you're gearing up for a day working around worldly people.
  3. I just loved it! He always sounds so warm and encouraging....I'm sure the brothers in Russia really appreciate that, too. And just what we have come to love best about the Governing Body.
  4. No Vegans are being banned in Russia. I thought it was funny, Jerry, but those who took it seriously are very upset about what is happening to our friends in Russia. Sometimes, I, too, have been guilty of using humor to defuse emotions in situations that are NOT funny--without thinking about the consequences

  6. If they are labeled as extremists, it is possible any travel documents would limit their ability to go outside the country.
  7. The next verse goes on to say: "Now, do not scoff, so that your bonds may not be further tightened, For I have heard from the Sovereign Lord Jehovah of armies, That an extermination has been determined for all the land.
  8. I agree 100%! If we were asked to write letters to the ECHR, it would be a message of support (the first ones were also supportive in their own way) of our worldwide brotherhood. The message might be worded differently, but we would once again be given the opportunity to show our unity and global love.
  9. Maybe this time our letters will be addressed to the Supreme Court members and the ECHR?
  10. I didn't think that the tweet concerned our particular situation, but it is still very interesting, nevertheless!
  11. And this may receive even BETTER coverage than it would have in just Russia. But, yes--we should all be prepared. Ummm....isn't this what we've been trying to prepare for (for many decades?) We are watching Bible history unfold--and isn't it exciting? !!!
  12. So, what is it called when we don't act theocratically at our summer assembly? Unconventional behavior.
  13. What kind of work do you do from home?
  14. Does anyone know if any of our brothers and sisters were affected by this?
  15. No, it's the same here, but professionals are credible witnesses in any court of law
  16. And the "haters" will not be news to Russia, right? They will add to the volume, as Shali said, and probably won't get read just as most of ours won't, but in the meantime, Russia, the UN and every other country in the world will be watching--We won't be banned in Russia without a worldwide, very public audience. This is just the attention the situation needs.
  17. "Now children, watch where you step! Moses and Aaron say they don't know how long those shoes might have to last before you get a new pair."
  18. Wow, Lynn! All this time, I've been thinking........oops! Guess I should have scrolled down a line to see the "brother" part. teehee
  19. Well, then, my dear fellow Witness, you should be happy you are NOT a Russian official getting ready to be bombarded with basically 8 million + (Jehovah willing) letters all saying pretty much the same message.

  21. I just did a google search and found a line from my letter posted in one of the top responses. It DOES feel a little strange! As long as no one takes it out of context, I think I'm okay with it, though.
