    I was invited the first time in YEARS!!! Big cheese from Bethel giving the talk, David Ianelli, Writing Committee...at least he used to be. He really is a good speaker...probably one of the best around.

    But no not going evah! Last one was in 2004, and only went for my mom. It's the worst meeting of the year. I met with some exJW's this last weekend and they said they went last year just to observe if anything had changed. They said people were distracted, using their Ipads etc. He felt the majority was not interested in the discourse at all.

    Well done jw.org!!

    Oh heck no. And yesterday I was even given an invitation by a nice jw lady who is one of my customers. She does not know I am inactive and an apostate. She only knows that my sister and youngest brother are jws. I plant little seeds with her, here and there. Things that made me go hmmm. Little things like their old KH having windows and the newer one they are in not having windows and then the new ones will have windows. My goal? To get the thought that things they consider normal and status quo, are perceived as a little bizarre by outsiders.

    Always being the most polite, welcoming, talkative, dutiful, JW wifey. In my mind will be the nice restaurant that we will go to afterwards with family and close friends. Same like in all assemblies and other JW gatherings; taking the socializing and paying no mind to all other doctrinal bs.

    It seems that the comments here indicate that between 1/3-1/2 are attending for various reasons while not believing a word being said. Interesting........

    The WBT$ will brag about the huge attendance.

    2011 was my last Memorial and last time I will EVER attend anything JW. I have not MISSED them. LOL

    I never missed one in over 50 years until last year. I have no intention of ever going again!
