  1. I didnt read that we need to "removing the effects of the destruction" involving dead bodies. If we go into that topic we might make a new one, another place. This page is for publicly visible an I dont think anyone wants to "stumble" (2 Corintians 6:3) anyone. Thats my humble taughts.
  2. Nice comments on the November campain. Have Faith: Knocking on the door Island Jehovah’s Witnesses have a message to share. By Connie Berry - November 22, 2021 0 As I’m writing this, I’m thinking about Nancy Slonim Aronie’s column, “Writing from the Heart,” which you’ll find in this week’s edition of The Times. She writes about jumping to conclusions and passing judgment. Why did my thoughts fly to her column? Because Jason Eldredge with Cape and Islands Jehovah Witnesses sent me an email about a new issue of the Watchtower that’s coming out this month. He wanted to let me know what it’s about, and that Island Jehovah’s Witnesses will be distributing it soon. He wrote, “I wanted to take a moment to share some of the exciting activity that the Matha’s Vineyard congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses is involved with this month. Nearly 100 congregants on the Vineyard are joining a worldwide campaign to distribute a special copy of the Watchtower magazine in November.” Immediately I thought, “Oh, I’ll have to watch out for these folks.” When someone knocks on my door and wants to talk about Jesus, I tend to revert right back to my judgmental self and close the door after a quick “No thank you.” Hardly ever do I think about the courage it must take to even knock on my door. Would I ever have the fortitude to knock on strangers’ doors to talk to them about my faith? No, not likely. I like to keep those parts of myself under lock and key, only bringing them out when someone else brings it up first. So rather than greet these visitors with a closed door, this time I’m going to let them in. Not just because I think it would be hospitable, but because Jason told me what this Watchtower issue hopes to accomplish. “The Watchtower, titled ‘A Better World Is Near,’ answers the age-old ‘doomsday’ question, Does the Bible predict the end of the world? with a comforting answer that may surprise many readers. I know you’ve written about the trepidation of some when they think about the future,” Jason wrote. “This magazine shares the Bible-based reasons some of your neighbors have for looking ahead with optimism and faith. More than 36 million printed copies are expected to be distributed worldwide, along with almost 400 languages being available as a digital publication.” That’s what I call outreach. Rather than a publication that points out all the negativity in the world, this one hopes to do the opposite, and I applaud the JWs for doing that. I may not agree with what is written in their publication or with every one of their beliefs, but I do agree that a new way of looking at things may be in order. Not everyone believes the world as we know it will end, but I bet a lot of people think about the finality of our resources and what happens when they are gone. So instead of closing the door, this time I’m going to listen. I don’t have to agree with Jehovah’s Witnesses, but I do want to respect them. 2021.11.22 - Martha's Vineyard Times; Comments on the campain..pdf

  6. (This is normally) In most of the congregations there is a Coordinator for public talks (dont know the English name, sorry) he will ask the brothers when they will have their talk if their outlines are "updated" He will also know the "need" in the congregation so the best outlines will be prepared as "food at the right time" Elders and MS will try their best to always follow Provb.27:23 This person an elder or ministral servant will work close with CO in the congregation. If the public talk from an elder/MS is not "updated" or come with "disturbance understanding" CAN the Auxiliary Counselor tell the visiting speaker and make he be aware of the matter. In our congregation our CO also are the Auxiliary Counselor and for around 3 years ago a brother from another area was talking about this canoby after the meeting he was so happy for the guidance. Hope you understand. 😃
  7. I speculate it will be a brother hosting the program. 😄
  8. Isaiah 40:11 Like a shepherd he will care for his flock. With his arm he will gather together the lambs, And in his bosom he will carry them. He will gently lead those nursing their young. "THE BIRTH OF THE "BUMMER LAMB" Every once in a while, an ewe (a mother sheep), will give birth to a lamb and reject it. If the lamb is returned to the ewe, the mother may even kick the poor animal away. Once an ewe rejects one of her lambs, she will never change her mind. These little lambs will hang their heads so low that it looks like something is wrong with it’s neck. Their spirit is broken. These lambs are called “bummer lambs.” Unless the shepherd intervenes, that lamb will die, rejected and alone. So, do you know what the shepherd does? He takes that rejected little one into his home, hand-feeds it and keeps it warm by the fire. He will wrap it up with blankets and hold it to his chest so the bummer can hear his heartbeat. Once the lamb is strong enough, the shepherd will place it back in the field with the rest of the flock. But that sheep never forgets how the shepherd cared for him when his mother rejected him. When the shepherd calls for the flock, guess who runs to him first? That is right, the bummer sheep. He knows his voice intimately. It is not that the bummer lamb is loved more, it just knows intimately the one who loves it. So many of us are bummer lambs, rejected and broken. But Jehovah is the Good Shepherd. He cares for our every need and holds us close to His heart so we can hear His heart beat. We may be broken, but we are deeply loved by The Shepherd! From one bummer sheep to another…..Remember how much you are loved!
  9. Please can we go back to the topic? we need to listen to the FDS now, otherwise satan will try to divied us. if we do this now, we will be better prepared for: « At that time, the life-saving direction that we receive from Jehovah’s organization may not appear practical from a human standpoint. All of us must be ready to obey any instructions we may receive, whether these appear sound from a strategic or human standpoint or not.» w13 11/15 pp. 16-20 Seven Shepherds, Eight Dukes—What They Mean for Us Today
  10. Maybe he copied Psalm 27:11-13, see in the Drama at 57.20, he opens what he got from his father. (How well made the song "With Eyes of Faith" also have Psalm 27:13 as a basis for the song) 🙂
  11. My wife an I got in, we started 45 min to connect on zoom before it should start. The brothers was very well dressed after the tour. The guide was asked several questions. They told us that in this 1000 attending it was more that 60 different countries. The wonderful about it was the guide said Jehovahs creation many times and you didnt hear......for ....years this was evoluted/developed (dont know the right word, sorry).
  12. One year ago my wife and I was not sure to be vacined, we prayed and we come up with a dessision after asking ourselves the question. Would Jehovah and Jesus let the FDS take the vacine if it was any risk? Would Jesus let his brothers be sick or live as long as they should give «food at the right time» The answer was clear to us. Jehovah care for his sheep and He is love.
