  1. That's very interesting. So it's another way to change or cover Jehovah's creation.
  2. Various forms of self expression and individualism also seem to increase as the world becomes more crowded. It seems that people feel lost in the crowd and feel the need to make a statement even if no one hear it... Tattoos make them look different, just like everyone else...
  3. I have the privilege to work at the local Assembly Hall once a week and a simple breakfast is provided for all the workers, then at 8:30 a brother will conduct Morning Worship using the Daily Text just as you described. Different brothers are assigned each week so they are fully prepared to conduct. He will get a volunteer to read the scripture, then he will make a brief comment, then he will get a volunteer to read the commentary, then he will ask questions and get comments.
  4. Has anyone used the downloaded WTLIB yet? I'm curious about something, is the OD book in the downloaded WTLIB? Is there a reminder that the OD book is an internal publication like this one in JWL?

  8. What motivated the ARC to act? Money? Political pressure? A sense of justice?
  9. There has been no comprehensive measurement of the full scope of child sexual abuse in the Catholic Church in the United States, though some have tried. American abuse survivors have pushed for years for the government to undertake a nationwide inquiry similar to the one conducted in Australia, where a royal commission spent four years examining the sexual abuse of children by a variety of religious and civic institutions, including the Catholic Church. I guess it's just a matter of time before the USA does what the Australian RC did..
  10. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/‘they-hid-it-all’-catholic-priests-abused-1000-children-in-pennsylvania-report-says/ar-BBLVZRR?li=BBnbcA1 There are many news agencies covering it, here is one link. I deleted the first report that I found, it was too graphic.
  11. It's more likely that the men were envious of the baby taking a nap...
  12. I have added the audio file to my folder. https://jwtalk.net/forums/topic/36584-morning-worship-mp3/?do=findComment&comment=571554
