I just got this thrilling (partial talk) in print from a sister who heard Br. Jackson of the G.B., give it in California L.A. convention.  Thought of how it encourage all of us:


Br. Jackson of the governing body concluding a talk @ LA District Convention had this neat illustration at the very end of the convention.  He said "What if you were watching a football game on TV & it was the trojans against the fighting Irish...& it's been a good game...and it's coming down to the last seconds and the trojans get the ball (then he stands like a football player) and then he starts running (and he picks uphis foot like he's going to take off) and you're glued to the TV-just waiting to see what will happen...and he makes it to the 30 then the 20 then the 10 yard line and he's at the one inch line...and he ..stops!

THE GUY WITH THE BALL STOPS!!! ..and he starts looking around for the game clock..and he yells, "how much time do I have left?"

And you are staring at the TV in disbelief!!! What do you do?
You yell at the TV -Run, Idiot!!!, Run!!!
...(Bro Jackson is yelling this from the
stage) it was so hysterical- then he stops and says ...

That's where you are...This system is dying.

We're the event that the universe is watching.

We are at the one inch line ..and some are stopping and looking around and wondering where we are in the stream of time.

RUN!!! IDIOT!!! RUN!!! Don't look at the time...just run...run...we're almost there.
It was a very dramatic ending.

I heard that same illustration a few years ago. Still appropriate today.

For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.
