How I Found the Truth

  • How I found the Truth
    Via my fleshly brother, who was studying. The Truth hit me like a slap in the face! Finally everything made sense.
    My wife, Emma, and I were baptised 21st Sep 1991 at the Surrey Assembly Hall. (We now both have CFS and listen to the meetings over the phone. Our ministry is 'the widow's mite' and we are grateful to Jehovah for his understanding.)

My Hobbies & Interests

  • My Interests
    The Bible!
    The sciences. But they make my brain ache.
  • My favorite books
    My favourite non-spiritual book is probably The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Though I haven't read it for decades.
  • My favorite music
    Careful chosen guitar music.
    Kingdom songs!
  • My favorite quotes
    The conclusion of the matter, everything having been heard, is: Fear the true God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole obligation of man. Ec 12:13

  1. This little volcanic island has a population of 4000 and around 122 publishers. A ratio of 1 to 33! (2016 yearbook) How will the opening of an airport affect the ministry I wonder. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-41646449
  2. Unlocked by saying Shibʹbo·leth correctly.
  3. I can see you have very nearly, wait for it, twenty twenty vision.
  4. Re. “Fleece test” Was video David Splane - Decisions of the FDS (Mt24:45), 4 minutes in.
  5. Please, please, please, just start saying Warwick correctly! One thing I have noticed since the 1990s is the evolution of a certain expression. At one point a brother on the platform would say “Verses one to five.” But they can’t quite bring themselves to say the clearer “Verses one through five.” So in the meantime some are saying “Verses one through to five.”
  6. I might have eaten a big bar of chocolate. Is there a support group here?

      Overeaters anonymous? :D

      Good-O

      Yes, Brother, I CAN support you almost everyday.  Or, at least, 3 times a week.  Sometimes a chocolate McFlurry gets in the way, esp after service on a hot day and the long ride home.  

  7. Warwick Pictures

    Is Flickr any good? I think they offer 1TB.
  8. That was mentioned on a recent JWBroadcasting video but I can’t remember which one!
  9. I don’t think I could work in Maintenance.
  10. Anyone like to run?

    Mummy was so proud.
  11. Anyone like to run?

    I once read that to beat the 5km world record requires running two 4 minute miles. I suppose decathletes etc would have among the best all round fitness.
  12. Anyone like to run?

    Don’t think I could have done that. Crawled the second one maybe.
  13. We have a soccer thread so I started this. I used to love running and would come home from work and do my usual 4.25 mile route about 3 times a week just because I was bored. I never really jogged. I would tell myself to take it easy but tried to beat my p.b. almost every time!. It was a hilly route and I got it down to 25m 14s. Just about managed to not throw up! But I think my best run was a road race one Sunday morning. If was pouring down and I realised part way through that that was to my advantage. I hadn’t realised that I must have been overheating all the time. It was 10km (6.2miles) and about 4 miles in I just started getting faster and faster. I overtook dozens of people and timed it perfectly, estimating the distance left. I even managed a sprint finish at 37m 10s. Then could hardly see for a couple of minutes because of the sweat burning my eyes! I was too short really, and was also going to gym bulking up for a powerlifting competition. If I had remained single I would have probably stuck to the running and aimed for the London Marathon. But for now it’s the Race for Life!
  14. Shooter in Las Vegas

    When I was studying someone pointed out me the gun on the back pocket of my jeans. I said “It’s a starting pistol brother.” (Ripped it off anyway.)
  15. “calm before the storm,”

    I think he was just puffing up his feathers in front of the cameras. He wanted to remain the centre of attention.
