No tongue have I, nor mouth, nor lip, a speech I cannot make
But if I could, the things I'd say, would long, long hours take!

For I was born to fill a need, in answer to a callAnd those who brought me forth to live, have named me Kingdom Hall.

So I've a royal name you see, and royal was my birthI'm here for service to a King, I hope I prove my worth!

I want so much to be just right. To suit the need I fillTo aid in service of Kingdom Truth, to people of good will

Oh give me lips and mouth and tongue, and let me tell to all,The reason why I'm standing here, why I'm called a Kingdom Hall

But what's a Kingdom Hall you ask? You mean you haven't heard?Why I'm the place where all may come, and freely learn God's word

No, I'm no church, don't get me wrong, I have no pews or steepleAnd never will collection plates be used to milk the people

The things you'll hear within my walls will not be false traditionYou'll never hear that Hell is hot, for that's a contradiction!

Nor will the pagan idea of God, who's three in oneEver be preached beneath my roof; such doctrines you should shun

But rather, here inside my doors you'll learn things reliableBecause they'll be taken from a truthful source, God's word, the Holy Bible!

You'll learn how Jehovah God intends to rid the earth of all it's woes;Destroy it's sorrow, sin and death; all mankind's deadly foes

Then in their place will blossom forth, a world of truth and loveAn earth where God's will shall be done; just as in heaven above

There'll be no sickness, pain or death, no tear to mar the smileNo one will then bring grief and strife; no Devil will beguile

But those who live in the new system will humbly bow the kneeBefore Jehovah God who reigns in Grand Supremacy

This is part of what you'll hear within these walls of mineBut more than that you'll learn just how to make this light to shine!

And that's the point I want to stress, which may seem rather oddThat I'm not built just as a place in which to worship God

So here it is you'll learn of Jehovah God; to know what is his willTo learn what he requires of you, his laws how to fulfill

To worship God means more than sit and listen to God's wordIt means to act; to serve; to preach, to all who have not heard

Outside my doors, amidst the world, you must hold forth the lightYou must apply what you here learn, to worship God aright

How great my joy I want to shout; My privelege is so rareYou other buildings of the earth, cannot with me compare

If I could speak, I'd raise my voice and make all buildings knowThat my importance excels theirs, for from me truth will flow

So listen, All you structures proud, you giants of steel and stoneYour tops may scrape a scuddling cloud or soar where Eagles have flown


Your cornerstone may have been laid by worldly men of fameBut you can not boast, That you've been made to praise Jehovah's name!!!

      I was born in Honolulu HI in 1942, just 3 months after the attack on Pearl Harbor.
      My mom was born and raised there. My dad was in the Army, and stationed there, and that's how they met. They were married 11/18/40. They were there on December 7th. My mother was just 3 months away from having me. My dad was from Boston, and that's where I grew up. I have a sister who is a year and a half younger than I. My mother was baptized as one of Jehovah's Witnesses in 1950, although she had known the truth since she was a teenager. She was born 2/8/20 (this also happens to be the birth date of Lana Turner).
      I was baptized in May of 1957, just 2 years before I graduated from high school, and I pioneered from '69 to '72. We attended the international conventions of Jehovah's Witnesses in 1953 and 1958. I remember 1963 also. But '58 was the granddaddy of them all.
      I moved to WA state in 1987 because I liked the climate better than New England. Then I started dialing up a Witness-Only bulletin board system, and was met with many messages of welcome from a variety of friends (PHriends, as we called them), and one of those e-mails was from Grace Straley.
      Over the course of time, I got to know things about her and vice verse, and we found out that we both wrote poetry and often shared these on the bulletin board. We did finally meet at the district convention in the summer of '95, incidentally.
      When so many friends went to the Internet (as I did), they asked about the poetry, and that is when I decided to go this route and publish the poetry on a website for many friends to see and enjoy, as so many of them had been on the BBS.
      And by the way, we did become the best of friends!!!!!

      "Looking  for  one  Heart !"
      "Looking for one Heart"
      And I'm Seeking everyone's Part
      My Family is like one spirit
      But with Jehovah, all don't want to hear it
      If all of us understand what is best
      All of us will be eternally Blesses
      Because days and ages has gotten us all down
      And the pain and sorrow it just seems to Drown
      Me with the feelings of Grief I've gotten to a Slump
      And sometime I feel like I live in a Garbage Dump
      Even with my health, I'm weak in the knees,
      Boy I miss my youth, when I could run with ease
      But I don't mind getting older
      Because It has make me bolder
      In my faith to Preach
      Of Jehovah's New System that I Teach
      Where all my Pain and Fears Will disappear
      And to Jehovah God we all must adhere
      Regardless the fact my family's not united in the Lord
      It will not stop me from being in full accord
      With Jehovah my God I will never Leave
      Because he is the only one that I will belive
      Especially for my Oldest son lost in death
      I have the faith that Jehovah will give him new breath
      To bring him back to life
      So He may one day see his Wife
      That never stopped loving his mother
      Even falling in love with his Brother
      Marrying him like in days of old
      When they obeyed Jehovah in what they were told
      Who will get her in the resurrection the bible does say
      But the only thing that matters is that we obey
      His word and law today and forever
      So those that love him will never sever
      A relationship I want all my family to get
      So every one of us will emit
      The Love and Joy that Jesus Displayed
      This is my prayer that all I can persuade
      That all my living sons and their wives will see
      My lost son that has a guarantee
      Of everlasting life that we all can attain
      If our love for Jehovah we don't break the chain
      That our whole family must impart
      That we all are "Looking for one Heart"

      A REGULAR PIONEER
      I've set upon an arduous course,
      But, oh joy I'll see,
      Jehovah accepted, I'm a regular pioneer,
      Lord, here I am, send me!
      Many prayers have I supplicated,
      Jehovah, can I see this through?
      I make my vow and dedication,
      Your will I want to do
      Notes and scriptures about pioneering
      Coincidence I would find
      Those encouraging talks and experiences
      Were indelibly on my mind
      My goal was set, a schedule, too.
      Boy, that was hard for me
      But Jehovah knows my weaknesses
      He's pulled me through to be
      A good for nothing slave I am,
      Only did what I was told.
      Declared the Kingdom Good News,
      Be courageous, firm and bold.
      So, a point I made to work with those
      Who chose the best career
      Nowhere else would they rather be
      Than serving as a regular pioneer
      We know the sheep are out there yet,
      The angels will direct
      Please bless the ministry, my God,
      From the wicked one he'll protect
      Oh, what joy at heart we feel
      When a meek one does agree,
      That there has to be a better life,
      And start a Bible study.
      What patience it does take for us,
      So many not at home,
      The listening ears are getting few
      But remember we are not alone
      Encouragement from one another
      Experiences to share
      Such a joyful praises and happy faces
      All God's true servant's wear.
      So if you have the pioneer spirit
      For a day, a month, a year,
      You'll see how rich Jehovah blesses
      In being a regular pioneer.

      DUANESBURG × The town's plan to purchase a former church in order to convert it into a new Town Hall is being disputed.
      The Town Board voted in October to purchase the former Jehovah's Witnesses Kingdom Hall at 2240 Western Turnpike for $250,000, but a group of residents, including former town Supervisor William Park, has filed a petition for a public referendum on the matter.
      Town Supervisor Roger Tidball, however, said the petition isn't valid because it was filed one day past the 30-day deadline for filing a referendum petition.
      "The town will be taking it to court to get it dismissed," Tidball said.
      Retired dairy farmer Richard Hoffman, a long-time resident who was one of the petition organizers, said he's been served papers to appear in state Supreme Court in Schenectady on Dec. 11.
      "I'm not done with this. I'll fight it tooth and nail," he said Wednesday.
      The Town Board voted Oct. 20 to sign a contract to purchase the former church, subject to permissive referendum — meaning a petition could force the public vote. The petition, which included 153 signatures — 19 more than the minimum needed — was filed Nov. 22. In seeking the referendum, opponents noted there is no money for the purchase included in the recently adopted 2018 town budget.
      Tidball said the town has been looking for a location to build a new town hall for about a year and a half, and in that time, some proposed land purchases have fallen through. Then the Jehovah's Witnesses building, built in the 1990s, became available.
      "The cost is good, so we thought we'd better jump on it," Tidball said. "We've totally done everything the way we're supposed to, and the attorney has approved it."
      While the town contends that the petition was filed too late, Hoffman said the organizers were aware of the deadline, but believe they made it with two or three days to spare.
      "I've been talked to a few people involved in commercial remodeling, and they thought it would take $250,000 to bring it up to code," he said. "It's not going to be $250,000 (to buy the building), it's going to be $400,000 to $500,000. Let the people of the town vote on that."
      The former church comprises about 4,000 square feet of space, roughly twice the size of the current town hall, which is also located on Western Turnpike, about 4 miles west of the church.
      "Our courtroom, which is also where the Town Board meets, is very small," Tidball said. "We have people waiting outside, and if we have a meeting where we're expecting more than about 40 or 50, we have to move it. That's really the main problem."
      The church building would require some renovations, but Tidball doesn't believe they would be an expensive as opponents think, since the building is modern. He believes the renovations would cost around $100,000. The town will seek grant money, he said, but is likely to borrow the town's portion of funding for the purchase and renovations to protect its reserves.
      The supervisor said the town hopes to hold a public forum on its plans for the building just after the first of the year.
      "This will solve a lot of our issues for future expansion," Tidball said.

      HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED... 
      WHY DO JEHOVAH'S WITNESSES  CALL THEIR MEETING PLACE A KINGDOM HALL RATHER THAN A CHURCH? 
      The bible answers.... 
      In the Bible, the Greek term that is sometimes translated “church” refers to a group of worshippers, not to the building they meet in.
      Note this example: When the apostle Paul wrote to the Christians in Rome, he sent greetings to a couple named Aquila and Priscilla and added: “Greet the church that meets in their home.” (Romans 16:5, Contemporary English Version) Paul didn’t intend for his greetings to be conveyed to a building. Rather, he was sending his greetings to people—the congregation that met in that home. 
      So instead of calling our place of worship a church, we use the term “Kingdom Hall.”
      Why “Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses”?
      This term is fitting for a number of reasons:
      > The building is a hall, or meeting place.
      > We meet to worship Jehovah, the God of the Bible, and to witness, or testify, about him.—Psalm 83:18; Isaiah 43:12.
      > We also meet to learn about God’s Kingdom, of which Jesus often spoke.—Matthew 6:9, 10; 24:14; Luke 4:43.
      You are welcome to visit a Kingdom Hall near you and see for yourself how JehovahÂ’s Witnesses conduct their meetings.

      A cannabis factory with almost 800 plants has been discovered inside an iconic Merthyr Tydfil chapel.
      Unbeknown to nearby residents, the building on Newcastle Street - a prominent landmark in the town since it was built in 1856 - was housing 769 cannabis plants.

      Officers only discovered the huge operation after conducting a spot check on someone acting suspiciously.
      From the information obtained they discovered the unbelievable haul brazenly being grown in the town centre.

      The former Kingdom Hall for Jehovahs Witnesses, on Newcastle Street in Merthyr Tydfil
      Police also found another haul of plants in a property on Pontmorlais High Street.
      A man has been arrested and charged with producing cannabis.
       

      The Salem Chapel was once a congregation church used by the Salvation Army and Merthyr Council.
      Since 1986, the chapel has been the Kingdom Hall for Jehovah’s Witnesses.

      Fargo, ND (WDAY-TV) A stolen vehicle has caused lots of damage in the South Fargo area.
      Tara Kohn says she and her husband were doing fence repair at Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses when they realized their blue pickup truck had been stolen.
      They called 911 immediately.
      A witness on 23rd Street in South Fargo says he saw the truck run a stop sign, swerve off the road, hit an electrical box, and then hit a parked car on the street.
      He says the car then fled.
      Police found the pickup at 1519 36 ½ Avenue South in Fargo, in an un-drivable condition.
      The person who stole the vehicle fled on foot, and Kohn says police told her they were searching for the suspect with the help of police K-9s.
      “So sad to not only lose our pickup truck of many years, but the damage that someone did with this. It's one thing to steal something... but to hurt so many other people. He didn't hurt people but their vehicles and their property,” said Kohn.
      If you have any information, you can contact Fargo Police at 701-235-4493.
