Went to the KH talk this morning

    Just felt like going to see many of my old friends and cousins. I got a lot of hugs and hellos. After the public talk I left and went to the church that I go with my wife. It was strange, both talked about the same subject, having a spiritual relationship with God. The JWs had a more mental discussion, the other church was more emotional. For a change the JW speaker talked about Jesus and how he demonstrated how we should be spiritual in our conduct. He said we were all born by dna and grew physically with no options ourselves. We have a mind that we could develope somewhat. We also had emotions but we also had a spiritual part that we needed to develope according to how Christ demonstrated.

    It was kind of fun. I do believe we have a spiritual side but don't feel any need for a book to tell me how to feel. I just look at the universe and feel a kind of spiritual connection to whatever there is that is responsible for it all. There is a lot of bad and good out there but I still love life and the fun I have living it.

    It's a frustrating thing with the WT... they will give a talk or print an article that is fairly balanced, uplifting, and thought-provoking... then they will pull the rug out from under you by blindsiding you with a statement of spectacular stupidity and heartlessness and inevitable reminder about the importance of the Faithful and Discreet Slave. It gets to be something of a game after a while, and most of us are to tired to play anymore.

    I encourage you, while you still can, to continue to (for want of better word) "shop around" for a fellowship that speaks to you and is most spiritually upbuilding. For me, the closest thing I've come to a "best fit" was a Messianic Jewish fellowship. But that's just me.

    I would need a sic-sack from the back seat of an airplane in hand, before I could sit through a KH public talk.

    This is the first meeting I have been to in 30 years. I new the speaker's name but didn't recognize his face, 30 years sure can make a difference. The new KH is really nice. He mentioned the telephone being used to send the talk out to those not able to attend.

    I'm not interested in going back, was just curious how the meetings were done now.

    I take it that you are a baptized jw, not df'd or da'd. So do they know you regularly attend a church? That could be a df'ing offense.

    Was pleased to hear the speaker spoke about Christ. Thats a move in the right direction

    Oh, the Watchtower gives lip-service to Jesus, but they will NEVER worship Him.

    The "Christ" was probably a fxxx up on the part of the speaker or a typo on the outline. They really meant "The Filthful and Disgraceful Slavebugger", and next time it will be fixed.
