Most of the time we expect to see negative news reports about Jehovah's Witnesses, even in the most respected journalistic sources. However, The Guardian has written a very fair article about us and the Russian ban in this article (dated 25th April 2017): https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2017/apr/25/jehovahs-witnesses-russia-putin-persecution It has the title, "Why Putin’s persecution of Jehovah’s Witnesses should worry us" and really appeals to the general public who think that our case in Russia has little or nothing to do with them.
The Geordie Bible
Stoffer posted a topic in General Discussion & Everyday Chit ChatOne of my favourite humorous books is by a chap from the Northeast called Scott Dobson and he wrote a book called "Larn Yersel Geordie" (Teach Yourself Geordie), which is the dialect they speak in the North of England in a town called Newcastle, and other areas around the UK that were mining villages (or next to them). I have attached an extract from the book which recounts the story of the Israelites crossing the Red Sea. If you don't speak Geordie then you'll have no idea what it's on about but if you're familiar with the dialect and culture then you should find this a very funny take on the Biblical account! Enjoy your weekend!
