    Hi GF and welcome!

    You've had a tough time in the last few years, and I'm sure this event doesn't help. I don't have any additional advice, but wish you the best.

    Good luck with tonight.

    This too shall pass!

    It amazes me how they are never there when you need them, but they sure show up when they think they can catch you at doing something wrong.

    Tell them you experienced the "miraculous, often-used, much lied about, pull it out of your ass" NEW LIGHT!!! If it works for them, why can't it work for you?? Tell them that the "light" told you to quit and to tell the elder body to go to hell (for NOT celebrating Xmas). Then remind them that the WT celebrated Xmas for decades, so now you want to do it for 50 years, then you'll quit, just like they did. If they can't see the unfairness of punishing people for the very same things that they did, them they really do have IQ's lower than a rock.

    It's ridiculous to get in trouble because of Christmas lights or for celebrating Christmas for that matter it shows how exremist and cultist this organisation is.

    I personally would ignore their call whatever happens so as not to make it appear that they can order me about, but it's up to you to decide if you want to carry on fading peacefully for a while yet.

    I personally had great success by simply denying that i was ever really baptized... Worked wonders for me!

    Make sure you put the Christmas tree back up in preparation for their visit!

    DannyHaszard google news wire Counselor Makes The Principal Thing Available Online (press release), NY - 14 minutes ago... Thing in his life and sharing it to Christians who are struggling with emotional, relational and spiritual issues, New Life Ministries for Jehovah’s Witnesses ... Counselor Makes The Principal Thing Available Online
    Pastoral counselor and teacher Derrick Whitt announces an online counseling center and bookstore Syracuse, NY, March 29, 2006 --(PR.COM)-- In keeping true to making Wisdom the Principal Thing in his life and sharing it to Christians who are struggling with emotional, relational and spiritual issues, New Life Ministries for Jehovah’s Witnesses, an online counseling ministry created by Derrick Whitt, announces the opening of an online counseling center and bookstore, featuring publications writing by the Syracuse-based pastoral counselor and Bible teacher.

    There is a real need to reach out to those in the sect.

    Jehovah’s Witness elders in the congregations do not provide empathetic counseling to those facing depression, stress, bitterness and anger from years of abuse, learning problems or family issues because they are not qualified to do so and, when they do approach them to discuss the problem(s), the counselees come away with pet answers like “Trust Jehovah, study and prayer more” or become subjected to being disfellowshipped (or excommunication from the religion). That’s totally unacceptable to me,” Derrick said

    Dr. Derrick Whitt, a former Jehovah’s Witness himself, provides crisis prevention and counseling through service/technological integration, making it possible for clients to access counseling services from remote areas. Witnesses can receive counseling (online or via snail mail) for just a $20 donation. All donations go 100 percent to New Life Ministries.

    Dr. Whitt has authored these books, published by Lulu, Inc.: What Do You Have To Do With Jehovah? : Christ-based Advice for Jehovah’s Witnesses, Pathway to Armageddon: A Benjamin Long Mystery, The Day of Jehovah Is Near…Are You Ready For It? & Wisdom: The Principal Thing.

    There is an alternative for Witnesses seeking counseling to overcome emotional, relational and spiritual struggling; they just need to seek New Life.

    The Web address is t

    Derrick Whitt, D.Min., is a certified pastoral counselor and founder of New Life Ministries for Jehovah’s Witnesses. He is a member of the National Association of Certified Christ-based Counselors and World Counseling Network.

    The ministry will be relocating to Cleveland, OH in June 2006.

    Welcome to the board.

    I think if you have the energy for it, take the advice about videotaping. Don't admit jack, just ask them questions and make them explain everything they do. Then post the video for others to see and learn from.

    But, if you are not up for the emotional rollercoaster, I say ignore them. Make sure you're ok first and foremost.

    Best wishes.

    Update: Talked to the head-headhunter on the phone. He didn't realize that the notice letter wasn't sent out until 3-24-06. He said it was to be sent on the 21rst. I told him the post mark was 24th. His response was somebody dropped the ball. I told him what else is new with those taking the lead. Its hard to lead with your head up your ass. He still wanted to know when we can get togather. I stalled him until 4-16, time for me to write my letter of 'no part of WBTS' with pending legal action.
