  1. Remember two things: 1) this is Jehovah’s representative. 2) he is imperfect. Don’t let someone rude shake you. Everyone is an example and some are good ones! BTW: What state are you in? (I’m asking for a friend) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I see one a week earlier ... May 18-20, Jersey City, NJ!
  3. Our Kingdom Hall has used KHConf for years. In addition to the phone tie-in, it has an answering service feature. This also works great for people calling in to the Kingdom Hall, giving them meeting times, location, etc. They can even leave a message and it goes to my cell phone to be received promptly. My question to any one who is familiar with this feature: I cannot remember how to add the prompt for the Memorial date and time. I did it last year, but defeated it after the Memorial. I have added the option and recording to ‘press 4 for the Memorial date/time’, but I cannot recall (or find on the help pdf) how to add the actual prompt itself … the actual details the caller will hear when they ‘push 4’. I hope makes sense.

    We are already told to guard our association. What does the future hold? There could become such a wide distinction that we wouldn’t need told to stop, it might just be a prudent thing to do. Time will tell. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. If this a conflict? Today’s text is based on the WT 11/15/15 10) Jesus showed insight by looking beyond the obvious and discerning why people acted in a certain way. On one occasion, some of his listeners in Galilee appeared eager to follow him. (John 6:22-24) But Jesus, who could read hearts, discerned that the people were more interested in physical food than in what he taught. (John 2:25) He saw what was wrong, patiently corrected them, and explained how they could improve.—Read John 6:25-27. From the WT April 2017 (yesterdays Study article): 11) First, humility will move us to acknowledge that we do not have all the facts. No matter how much we know of a situation, only Jehovah can read a person’s figurative heart. (1 Sam. 16:7) We know Jesus also reads hearts. Why does yesterdays article say only Jehovah can read hearts?
  6. Here is a video of the award ceremony. After it plays in Russian, it will replay in English. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8C1jjCPiiiY
  7. I hope its fake news also ... but, many sources seem to be repeating this story as fact. http://www.startribune.com/russia-s-supreme-court-upholds-ban-on-jehovah-s-witnesses/418530883/ https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/europe/russias-supreme-court-upholds-ban-on-jehovahs-witnesses/2017/04/06/6b7432ac-1ae8-11e7-8598-9a99da559f9e_story.html?utm_term=.dc050c453baf http://www.startribune.com/russia-s-supreme-court-upholds-ban-on-jehovah-s-witnesses/418530883/
  8. http://abcnews.go.com/International/wireStory/russias-supreme-court-upholds-ban-jehovahs-witnesses-46624760 why is ABC news reporting the ruling??

  10. I agree. Shot that idea down! Unless, one is not mature, of course. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I can imagine Walt Disney reaction when he hears about this in the New World. I don't think he would be impressed. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Can i also have a link to the watchtower library?
  13. You were asking about partakers. My comment only was concerning the single statistic of 'partakers'. Our activity has nothing to do with the number of partakers. The other numbers are incredibly interesting. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. i believe we learned in the 70's if we were to teach someone to sing, we must first buy them a Coke. I would be happy to try that ... but, I'm sorry, i cannot help you. If I were to try it wold be a matter of the 'blind leading the blind'!
  15. It's been mentioned before on other posts: The number of partakers is simply a number. Going up or down is not of any concern. The number could be very accurate or completely wrong. In the end Jehovah will decide. Personally, I spend about 30 seconds on that portion of the yearbook. It means as much to my spiritual life as knowing how many people were baptized happen to have blue eyes.
