August 1, 2018 - Re: 2019 Regional Convention and Rooming Arrangements

Dear Brothers:

We are very happy to be able to provide you with some details of your regional convention for 2019. [Announce venue.] The date of your convention can be found by logging in to our convention website, www . ibsaconvention . org. The website will provide you with information and direction if you wish to book accommodation for the convention. However, please note that the website will not go live until 9:00 a.m. on Monday, August 13, 2018. To access the website, please use the following password: [Announce password.]

As in previous years, a team of brothers has worked very hard to negotiate competitive rates with hotels local to our convention venues. We are confident that, in the majority of cases, our negotiators have managed to obtain cheaper rates for our delegates than could be obtained by individuals booking outside of our website. Some hotels have refused to negotiate, believing that they have no need to reduce their prices as they will receive bookings anyway. These hotels have been excluded from our website. By making bookings only with hotels appearing on our website, we may be able to motivate previously uncooperative establishments to offer better rates in the future. In some cases, only a limited number of rooms are currently listed on our website for certain hotels and conventions. However, it is anticipated that more rooms will be added in coming months.

Once logged in to the ibsaconvention.org website, if you require assistance, there is a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) section, which should provide answers to the most commonly encountered queries. There is also an email address for each convention where specific enquiries can be sent. However, we encourage all to be patient in making bookings before sending questions to the provided email address.

We pray Jehovah’s blessing on your plans to attend your regional convention in 2018 and send you our warm Christian love and best wishes.

Your brothers,

PS to body of elders:

Please arrange for this letter to be read to the congregation at the end of the midweek meeting during the week of August 6, 2018, and then placed on the noticebaord. If you will not be having a congregation meeting that week due to a regional convention, the letter should be read after the Watchtower Study on the weekend preceding August 6. The venue and date of your convention will be provided in due course. Please note that the password for the ibsaconvention.org website is your congregation number.

The info provided does not support your statement on the adjustment made concerning 2019 regional convention from 3 days to 2 days!

I read the letter ... neither does it disprove any statement.

The supposition that it is two days instead of three days needs proof.

In the absence of proof, the fair assumption is that it stays the same, whether that be three days, or thirty three days, etc.

2019 Regional Convention - "Love never fails"

My sources tell me that this will be the title for the next assembly. Dates will be announced real soon due to the international assemblies there will be in the US. Also, it will remain a three day assembly.

It also says nothing about the composition of the moon. Yes James, I think you’ve found the smoking gun

What about this title for an assembly. ' How to avoid the temptation to use tights pants'

Maybe a new pamphlet with a warning message to all nation's ' Stop wearing tight pants before it's to late' 

Young people ask subject. ' Would Jesus have use tight pants?' They could turn it into a family studying subject.

I'm gonna send my ideas to the GB. Hopefully someone of the members gonna like my ideas and support this? I bet one of them is sound of mind and reasonable.

..... being a living anacronism, I too am so "yesterday" on all this.

Neither enrique's  or "Tight Pants Tony's" ( affectionally known as TPT) comments had ANYTHING to do with medical issues at all.

Enrique' s comment was merely a  parody of the bats in the belfries.

......... and as far a "Would Jesus wear tight pants?"

Under that robe he coulda had  a goldfish bowl with water and fish pressed between his knees!

Who knows?

I went to the site and read about the kinds of testicular medical problems you can get from tight pants, and it reminded me of a dirty joke. Which you can find here: http://www.ebaumsworld.com/jokes/tight-underwear/1057145/

Or, it's a pretty old joke, so I could just copy it:

The doctor said, "Joe, the good news is I can cure your headaches. The bad news is that it will require castration. You have a very rare condition, which causes your testicles to press on your spine, and the pressure creates one hell of a headache. The only way to relieve the pressure is to remove the testicles."

Joe was shocked and depressed. He wondered if he had anything to live for. He couldn't concentrate long enough to answer, but decided he had no choice but to go under the knife.

When he left the hospital he was without a headache for the first time in 20 years, but he felt like he was missing an important part of himself. As he walked down the street, he realized that he felt like a different person. He could make a new beginning and live a new life. He saw a men's clothing store & thought, "That's what I need - a new suit."

He entered the shop and told the salesman, "I'd like a new suit." The elderly tailor eyed him briefly and said, "Let's see ... size 44 long." Joe laughed, "That's right, how did you know?" "Been in the business 60 years!" Joe tried on the suit. It fit perfectly.

As Joe admired himself in the mirror, the salesman asked, "How about a new shirt?" Joe thought for a moment and then said, "Sure." The salesman eyed Joe and said, "Let's see, 34 sleeve & 16-1/2 neck." Again, Joe was surprised, "That's right, how did you know?" "Been in the business 60 years!"

Joe tried on the shirt, and it fit perfectly. As Joe adjusted the collar in the mirror, the salesman asked, "How about new shoes?" Joe was on a roll and said, "Sure." The salesman eyed Joe's feet and said, "Let's see ... 9-1/2 E." Joe was astonished, "That's right, how did you know?" "Been in the business 60 years!"

Joe tried on the shoes and they fit perfectly. Joe walked comfortably around the shop and the salesman asked, "How about some new underwear?" Joe thought for a second and said, "Sure." The salesman stepped back, eyed Joe's waist and said, "Let's see... size 36."

 

 

[wait scroll for it]

 



Joe laughed. "Ah ha! I got you! I've worn size 34 since I was 18 years old." The salesman shook his head, "You can't wear a size 34. A size 34 underwear would press your testicles up against the base of your spine and give you one hell of a headache.

WOOOooooEEEEEEEooooooo

It is the exact same joke I was thinking of at your intro to your telling of it!

Know about the Hunchback that got a tailor made suit?

    • Moving forward, 7:25 He will speak words against the Most High, and he will continually harass the holy ones of the Supreme One. He will intend to change times and law, and they will be given into his hand for a time, times, and half a time. 26 But the Court sat, and they took away his rulership,* in order to annihilate him and to destroy him completely. 27 “‘And the kingdom and the rulership and the grandeur of the kingdoms under all the heavens were given to the people who are the holy ones of the Supreme One. Their kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all rulerships will serve and obey them.’28 “This is the end of the matter. As for me, Daniel, my thoughts alarmed me greatly, so that I turned pale; but I kept the matter in my own heart.” I have read the book Pay Attention to Daniel Prophesy many times. I agree with the description of events of Daniel 7. Jehovah has let the world alone,that all events are mans mistakes. I see this as the first physical act against Satan's world? As I read 7:25,26,27 it appears an event happens 3-1/2 times or 3-1/2 years before the entire Kingdom takes possession of the Earth at Armageddon.   Is this a fulfillment after the persecution of the GB after 1914 as written in the Daniel book of chapter 9?
    • Are you for real? You know nothing about me.....and the tests I had to face....  But I know the word of God and I have paid my dues.  My daughter had cancer and had surgery  which lasted the entire day..... without blood and she was 8 and half months old.  .... If she had taken blood she would not have survived.  It is what the doctors and this world don't tell you that is important!  I can share all the info I learnt  with you to prove to you that the bible is absolutely right when it cautions us to abstain from blood. .... if you are interested I can inform you. It takes the liver 30 days to break down foreign blood in the system..... if the person is too weak they get anaphalactic shock from the blood transfusion - which is never given as the reason for death on the death certificate. ..... always complications from surgery. Life is important to me ..... but everlasting life is more important. 
    • Are you honest? I have just seen you bashing JWs, never acknowledging anything good about them.   You have given me labels many times in your so-called bias - search for something which can only be called truth if it confirms to your personal viewpoint.  How unrealistic this expectation in a wicked world...... Do you believe the bible?   Yes or No ?   God himself chose king Saul for his humility and then saul turned aside and became unapproved.... to the extent that he visited the witch if Endor calling up the dead.   Jesus chose Jude himself after praying with holy spirit and jude later became  wicked (practicing theft, deceit) and eventually betrayed him.....  We can try to obtain a clean congregation but there will always be individuals who can turn wicked and create problems until someone speaks up and evidence is obtained.   And if the government cannot get a conviction ?  Then we only have rumours to go on..... which is unloving if there is no proof.  The bible itself says we must not defame others.  It is also a grave offence.  This is why it is hard to obtain perfection. Do we err on the side of obtaining justice or mercy...... because both these attributes are important.
    • We had a joke in SA - the light green people must please sit in the back of the bus...... In South Africa we use the term 'coloured' in different way than USA.   Historically we had a group of people (since inception of SA 370 years ago) who were a mix between black and white and they spoke the European language : Dutch.  So they were officially not black and not white.  To the whites they were never white enough and for the black people not black enough. 
    • Although the "me too" movement has brought the plight  of individuals to the fore I think it is a temporary phenomena.  We will see a few institutions sued for money due to past  negligence (as JWs) to provide a public token of supposed caring and a "show" of justice but the  true and horrific extent of child trafficking and sex abuse will not be exposed.  It is a world- wide network which, I suspect, brings in profits comparable to, or more than drugs,  and is active also amongst the depraved elite, including CIA, judges, princes etc. It will escalate as young children are now groomed by the new UN school curriculim. Child sex abuse is covered up by law enforcement and government institutions we trust because rich and important people are involved.  Here is another general  comment: satan's world will soon not be hidden any longer. It will no longer operate in the shadows. Seriously wicked things will go on in full view of the public as this way of thinking infiltrates all aspects if thinking in society..... like LGBT it will be tolerated.  Mankind is sinking lower and lower in a depraved mental state.
    • OCD is in and of itself not NECESSARILY a bad thing. ...and not NECESSARILY a disorder. It just seems that way to other people who have to endure it .... when they are not interested in that particular application.
    • One gets a sense of who really is here to get closer to the truth of a matter (within reason)  and who just wants to destroy - like Satan.  Satan: always wants to win by destroying all truth and reasonableness and uses deceit.   I do see a general attitude here at times. Sorry if it hurts feelings but there are people here whom I have called out as having OCD because I already know what their answer will be. They revert back to same old answers and behaviour expecting different results. I guess I am predictable too.  I hate deceit......  People are pretty disrespectful these days..... burn the bible, call jesus names... I think we will see very bad behaviour in future towards all who believe in christ.
