"The program under the theme of "Safeguard Your Mind" includes music, prayer, ministry school and various symposiums, and lasted about eight hours on both days."

Safeguard your mind! LOL I believe an undercover "apostate" wrote this article.

Who would have ever thought that in Wasp Wainscott there would one day be an assembly for the Spanish speaking friends?.

The growth is amazing. This country's demographics are changing, indeed.

This was once a small little town out on the East end, that was primarily a summer playground for the wealthy.

Meh, this is talking about the circuit assembly, not the dc. Oh well, jws should safeguard their mind from being controlled by the publishing/real estate company masquerading as a religion.

Funny how their were no numbers in the article to prove the giant increase in members, which ain't happening.

Safeguard their mind from what?.

The congregants looked quite pleased to be there.

A model audience of people engaged in orderly conduct just like any other JW gathering.

Complete with attendants walking around and holding up signs that say "Keep Moving" and "No Loitering" during the boasting sessions.

I wish they did it more at the last convention i attended.

They simply want to encourage the friends to enjoy the program. Many of the younger ones gather and talk. I did it my age, as well.

It is also a potential fir hazard for people to be bunched up together in clusters.

Just plain order.

I knew who posted it. His style is quite distinctive.

I was speaking of the judging icons. It is largely MM or AMOM.

The icons are silly anyway. Stupid stuff.
