  1. We have a sister in our congregation that has a mother on hospice. She’s not able to attend our Sunday meeting at 10:00 am PST. If we could find her an English meeting a at least 4 hours later, she would to attend. if this is something you can help make happen please DM me. Thanks!! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  2. I keep hearing this comment from those who have decided not to take the vaccination. My first thought is: Was the severe reaction death … because that’s one major effect of COVID. Was the severe reaction infecting a loved one … because having COVID does that as well. It’s tough for me to follow the ‘I personally know someone’ method of reasoning on the matter. Let me illustrate why: - I personally know people who have died in a vehicle accident … have I decided not to drive a vehicle? - I personally know people who had a terrible marriage … have I decided never to marry? - I personally know someone who went in for a minor dental procedure and something happened and as a result he died. Have I decided never to have dental work? Do you get the point? Severe adverse reaction can occur in many scenarios because we have imperfection and so many challenges.
  3. Please don’t wait. I don’t mind finding surprises or updates here. The sooner i know the sooner i will run to watch it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. so … are we told NOT to have the breakout rooms on convention Sundays? Or is that up to local congregations to determine? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Maybe it was to build the confidence level and assure those hesitant that while the vaccine has pros and cons, it’s okay to simple accept it an move on. Just a thought to consider. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. oh .. ok. I noticed we were going off track … I probably shouldn’t have jumped the train! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Murder, of course, would be a violation of Jehovahs law and the vaccinate is not murder. In fact, one might argue it’s more an opposite of murder. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I understand what you are saying. Someone asked one of our ‘non-vax’ friends if she thought she knew more about this issue than the GB or if felt she had more respect for life than 98% of the US Bethel. Needless to say, she was pretty upset. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Thanks! I just watched the update. Likely many countries where Branch facilites exist dint yet have the vaccine available. 98% in the US Bethel is huge. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Have i missed something? Is there an assumption that high numbers of Bethelites are choosing to not be vaccinated? I really doubt the unvaccinated there would be incredibly small. The Branch has very clear what’s expected on our part … personal decision yes … but if we have our perceptive powers tuned in I sense a clear expectation. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. i an in USA and see S-147 now Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. For what it’s worth, here an added observation on disruptive people at Congregation meetings. Years ago we had someone disrupt our physical meeting at Kingdom Hall as well as someone disrupt our Zoom meeting. The one on Zoom was eliminated (removed) in seconds by an alert attendant. Most of the friends didn’t even realize what occurred. The one at the Hall took as good 20 minutes to finally get the disruptive individual removed by authorities. It created great stress and concern that everyone had to experience. It appears to me that it actually safer to invite to Zoom than invite to physically attend. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Respectfully, I don’t believe this is correct. Please site the reference source where you find this detail. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Time Management comes easier for some people than others. I see two things that can make someone consistently late: 1) Trying to take care of too many things prior to the meeting or 2) simply being lazy and not getting yourself together. Either way outing the spiritual thing in the first (most important) place would help the situation improve. In any case, appreciate each person has the gift of free will and love them for being there ... whenever they get there. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Isn’t everything really? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
