    Unlike God's word, that JWs believe to be absolute truth, any one of their directives given at the 2013 District Convention could be subject to misinterpretation.

    3:30 Drama: “ShowYourselfAttentive to theWonderful

    Works of God” (Job 37:14)

    --So the drama is on Friday this year. I need to find a way for our family to miss Friday. Hmm...then again, that'll be the only fun part of the program, so...never mind...

    4:00 “Buy Truth Itself and Do Not Sell It” (Proverbs 23:23)

    --Oh, and we do accept debit and credit cards now, don't forget!

    4:20 Believe Inspired Truth, Not Inspired Error

    (1 Timothy 4:1; 1 John 4:1, 6)

    --Hmm, maybe this one will be a review of the organization's "inspired errors"? One can only hope.

    Well let me be the first to comment on how many parts are "warning" parts. Even an "apostate" symposium is there specifically mentioning "human" apostates. Yep the rhetoric is going up a few notches with this one. Wow! "The truth brings not peace but a sword". Yikes!

    Also, it isn't obvious to me there is a part dealing with the new understanding on the FDS. usually that would be an end of the day Saturday part would it not?

    “The False Stylus” (Jeremiah 8:8, 9)

    --Why do I get the feeling this is going to be an anti-technology talk?

    And here's the maaaain event!!! In this corner, invisibly present, weighing in at an indeterminate weight,

    11:10 Symposium: Beware of Apostates!

    Satan (John 8:44)

    Human Apostates (1 John 2:19)

    --Wow, there are HUMAN apostates?? I thought they were all devil-wolf-alien creatures!!

    So, there's another drama on Sunday as well, about Esther! Plus a sound drama on Saturday, so we've got like 3 dramas. They're really spicing it up this year! I think I'm going to be snorting milk through my nose in laughter at some point, I guarantee it. Either that, or vomiting in the bathroom that always smells of one big fart. We'll see.

    Wow, can't believe it's only...what, less than five months away...I can't tell you how excited I am.

    On the subject of contributions the program says:

    CONTRIBUTIONS
    At considerable expense, arrangements have been made to provide adequate seating, a sound system,
    and many other services that make it enjoyable to attend the convention and help us to draw closer
    to Jehovah. Your voluntary con tributions help to cover these expenses and also support the
    worldwide work. For your convenience, clearly marked contribution boxes are located throughout the
    facility. All contributions are very much appreciated. The Governing Body wishes to thank you for
    your generous support
    of Kingdom interests.

    . . . generous support of Kingdom interests? More like generous support of their lifestyle!

    How did you learn the truth? ( from the mental deseased).

    Informal witnessing or formal witnessing. O hell what,s the difference,

    jeans and t-shirt or polyester suit. Another JW term.

    Through our publication, yes forget the Bible

    Relatives: I don,t know them, we were told not to associate with

    non-JW relatives.

    Searching for God: We are still looking for that elusive God (Jehovah)

    but in the mean time we have the GB.

    I feel a little sick reading this program knowing I will probably be attending this year. One pathetic DC solilquy is way to much.

    On Friday there is a symposium on how you found the truth. I actually found the truth from human aposates (not canine or satan himself) on the big bad Internet.
