    I feel a little odd in posting this....

    I am a 39 year old former Witness, former Elder, former just about everything. Been through much in the last two years... realized not all things I believed were true to me, not all things in the faith work the way I thought. No anger about the past... I did what I believed to be true to myself, and what others do is their decision.

    Newly remarried with a stepdaughter now, obviously not a lot of friends from the past.

    Just wondering if there are any potential new friends in the area that can relate to my life now?

    Welcome to the board somlat!

    I'm sure you will find people you can relate to here, and probably from near you, more or less.


    Welcome aboard. I can relate to the elder part.......sadly.

    Welcome, somlat, I'm sure you'll make lots of new friends here. Not sure who lives in or near Pittsburgh. I'm over near Seattle, but I will say this, GO STEELERS!!!!!!!!!

    Add me to your list... went to Servant school in Pittsburgh Pa. way back in 1970 before the elder arrangement.

    Quit in 1980 along with R. Franz and the Dunlap brothers.

    Hang tough,
