2021 Governing Body Update #6


Recommended Posts

This would be great if we got worldwide direction (or local branch) to have it shown at next week's (or soon) midweek meeting! 

 

After looping video for about 5 times, feeling great, now looping with eyes of faith video. 

 

Hopefully will be out next week for 1st part of drama.

Not gonna lie - I took that point about the GB and bethelites meeting again as an indication that vaccinated Witnesses will be allowed to meet in certain parts of the country/world as Government allows.

 

That's what I liked the most about this update.

So encouraging to see:

 

01:29 Governing body having an in-person meeting

 

01:40 So nice to see the bethel family eating together and having WatchTower study together.

 

All this because they are vaccinated.:D

 With no distancing or mask wearing which demonstrates the effectiveness of the vaccines as well. Makes me eager to see my bothers and sisters in person again.

I took it the same - especially when they showed us a LARGE auditorium with bethelites sitting close together (as they wee all vaccinated).

That gives me hope as well that the annual meeting will be close to normal, if not totally normal absent of new Government restrictions being imposed.

Things I learned:

 

1. Vaccines DO slow down the spread

2. THIS is NOT over

3. IF we are vaccinated we CAN assemble again (but we have not been given the OK at the halls - yet!), but they are meeting together again at Bethel

4. Bro Herd is almost 87 years old

5. Jehovah LOVES older ones and isn't discarding them (Ps 71:9)

6. The Chariot has not stopped

 

 

Can you add one more item to the list to make it 7 instead of 6?

just asking....:D

Yeah... in France, it's already starting to talk again about a lockdown... we aren't back in KH yet... I don't expect it for this year :(

Keep in mind Bethels are closed environments - no visiters and no outside visiting. The environment around us is different.

Direction has been recently published on how to reduce the spread of disease in Halls, how to reduce high touch areas, where to place signage, and encouragement for sick friends to stay home.

 

No way that comes out of we aren’t meeting again at some point.

Yes, this is an important difference.  Are bethelites going to the supermarket, going out to work, travelling on public transport, or mixing with the general public.  Are there school-aged children mixing with other children, then going home to their families.  No.  But we are.  So what they do in Bethel, and what we do is two different things. 

If all we did was stay at home and the only time we went out was to go to the Kingdom Hall, then maybe we could meet again now.  But that is not the way it is.  

But we're getting there.

    Here in the United States, more than 98 percent of our Bethel family have chosen to get vaccinated.

I took this to mean 98% in all Bethel in the US not just Warwick and 50% when you add in international Bethels.

Oh and the direction even says temperature checks and screenings aren’t necessary for those entering. That direction would be practically useless if zoom has permanence to it.  BUT… things change depending on government restrictions so I get that point.

I'm glad you mentioned this. I was going to bring this out. 

 

Thanks 

Well, the point of vaccination is that after you’ve had the shot, it doesn’t matter if the other person is vaccinated or not because it’s designed to protect you from infection form carriers of the virus. 
 

So if you’re vaccinated, you’re protected from infection. And that’s why the mask and distancing mandates were dropped country wide essentially after enough people got the shot. 
 

Doesn’t mean the pandemic is over of course, it just means you’re protected.
