I am Sorry but NO! I will not close this Team down. This Team is Here to Meet Specific needs of Jehovah's Witnesses. Other Teams are Here to meet other Need of Jehovah's Witnesses. We all Profess to Worship and to Serve the Same God. Each Person has different needs and goals in their Life, While we share Common Goals and Needs in some areas of our lives others are far different. I gave You the Chance to do so and YOU did not step up to the Plate. emoticon

Jehovah's Witnesses have Many ways to Witness to their Fellow Humans, for example: Door to Door, Businesses, Formal and informal, Telephone, Email, Text Message, Letter writing, On Our Jobs, Speaking with Neighbor or Family. All We Do is suppose to be For God's Glory not ours. This Forum is one way we can do so and can encourage each other in our Spirituality and Physical and Mental endeavors. I wish each of You well. emoticon

Tomorrow is the Second Saturday of the Month of March, probably doesn't mean much to most Witnesses but It does to a lot of folks in Christiandom; for them it is the First Saturday of Lent. If You like myself came out of Christiandom, you understand the mixed feelings some have. ( I would hope you do). May your Preaching endeavors be blessed this weekend. emoticon

JWILLIS40 why don't you send a team spark mail out to all members to remove themselves from this team and give them the link to JWs On the Narrow Path team.

www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/groups_i
nd
ividual.asp


Basically let's try to move everyone over to that team and leave messages on all the message boards here to let them know that this team was closed and that there is activity on this other team and also put the link to it so they can easily join it.

If you want, I can do it by adding myself as a team leader. Just let me know.

I was thinking about what you two have said. I also agree that one united JW team would be good. With that said, more input from other active JW's here on SP would be encouraging for us all.
I also belong to "JWs on the Narrow Path" here on SP. It is not a private team.
I find a lot of encouragement and support from the br/sis there.

Blending these two teams is worth considering in my opinion. After all, if we are all in the same congregation so to speak, possibly it would be more effective for us all.

Have a great weekend all...enjoy your Sunday meeting.

I just did a team search for Jehovah's Witnesses and came up with only this one. I think that is odd because I know there was two. The other team It came up with has like 23 members and is for Men by the title.

Yes I think we should be united.

Maybe we can get this one active again, if the others have folded, which is sad.

Thank you for participating on this team. It gets kind of lonely being by yourself. I know there is 2 other private JW teams. I know that the private JW team, that I am a member in, is in a pretty inactive state right now. Do you know anything about the other private JW team?

I think that all 3 JW teams, should combine into one team to be in connection or accordance with theocratic order theme of things. We have one god, one father and one governing body, etc. I think we should have one team to represent Jehovah's Witnesses being not only united in worship but also united in this social weight loss forum.

What are your view on this?

Todays study was so encouraging. I was at a wedding reception yesterday and ran into a few friends from waaaayyyy back in the day. It was so nice to reconnect with them and be able to socialize. Well, one brother was my cousins ex-husband, (I was also in their wedding) and I went up to talk to him and let him know that I was reinstated and we had a nice little chat. Well in within our conversation I broke down and cried because the pain of my past transgressions is still too fresh in my heart. (I am crying now) I was reinstated in July after being lost for 17 years. And although there have been constant reminders, on a daily basis, about Jehovah's power of forgiveness and love, my pain is still there and too fresh for me myself to "just let it go". In a way it serves as a constant reminder that I don't ever want to be in that "lost" state/position again. He reassurred that Jehovah has forgiven me, I knew and know that, but nevertheless he said to me and gave me a hankerchef to dry my eyes. What a source of comfort that was. Now, at this time I hadn't prestudied my lesson for today. I did that last night when I got home and when I did it was so awesome that the lesson was about being an encouragement to one another because there might be those who harbor alot of guilt for their past, like me. And how the brother was displaying the same exact love that lesson spoke about.

Please, don't worry though, I am not in a depressed state of mind, it's just when I speak to others about my being "lost" is when I start to get all choked up.

An elder in our congregation today made a comment about how he had just heard of a fellow believer being reinstated after being "lost" for 30 years. That sometimes some of lose our way in life and feel that we are not worthy of Jehovah's love and that in order for him to return, Jehovah was surely still in his heart.

Jehovah is truly our universal sovereign father and creator.

The Watchtower Study was titled, "Consider and Encourage One Another." Most of us joined this Site to find encouragement and help in loosing weight or getting fit or just to try to maintain the health we have and hopefully improve it. Eating healthier, getting regular exercise and doing so while improving or maintaining our friendship with Jehovah is highly important to each of us
In this study on page 20 in paragraph 9 it states, 'We need to motivate fellow believers to display love and engage in fine works. When a fire is about to die down, we may need to stir the coals and fan the flames.' That is what this site does for me, it spread the spark of encouragement to eat healthy and to exercise correctly so that I can Honor Jehovah with more than my words, with my actions also. You my fellow Witnesses are also a part of that spark of encouragement.
So let us Spread the Spark of God's Love in more ways than One. emoticon
