that "peace" part of your post. 2x2ism is highly organized, while it preaches the opposite. Workers always state that they always preach the "gospel," but seldom even mention that Jesus died for our sins. And the convention sermons are filled to the brim with stories ans anecdotes and cliche's that might if one listens real close have one word in them that also appears somewhere in Scripture So for the greater part of your post you hit the proverbial nail on the head. But there is no peace easily viewed in 2x2 adults at conventions. There is strife in the line up for meals, even between children, with adults batting those kids about their heads to try to stop that strife - while some of those adults take any available opportunity to get one person closer to in the dining tent (I speak from experience at the dining TENT doorway.
And then during "meetings" there is the workers' super security patrols going on all day and all night, just like a maximum security prison. And because few 2x2 conventions are even known by the immediate neighbors as church functions, those super security forces on convention grounds have nothing whatever to do with 2x2 security from non-2x2s, and everything to do with absolute control of 2x2 laity every minute of every day of those conventions.
As a child, I could not even go to the outhouse without a worker-security guard rushing me back into the meeting tent.
Some peace -- yes the places where 2x2 church buildings and functions are performed are generally in very peaceful outback areas, but there is no peace or word of God even at 2x2 conventions, EXCEPT for the odd 2x2 layperson with his/her Bible open as the regimented 'lights out' switch is thrown by one of those worker-super-security-patrolers, regardless of whether those in those sleeping tents WANT the lights out.
If a plane flew over a 2x2 convention site at night, the view below could easily be midstaken for a maximum security prison - flood lights on everywhere around the site all night long.
Of course, most of the 2x2 laity never notices that THEY are being policed on convention sites every minute they are there. When the security lights are on at night, most 2x2 laity is asleep inside the sleeping facilities unless they can remain awake in the dark inside those facilities. And if they get out of bed to go to the outhouse after dark, they probably appreciate all those yard lights that ensure that they do not slip or fall off 2x2ism in the process.
