There's been lots of talk here lately, about "fading away" from the JW faith so's not to be DF'd and shunned, thereby keeping your family intact.
Some people have mentioned that it is a good idea to, perhaps, move away from an area so that you can slip out of the JW belief system un-noticed.
I do recall however, from my days as a "servant", that it was normal practise for a PO from the congregation of the departing one(s) to write a letter of introduction to the PO of the receiving congregation, so that he could also advise the new congregation elders as to his opinion of the spiritual health of the new arrivals.
As a point of interest, when the brother who had been best man at my first marriage, who was also the Ministry School servant, moved into Southampton, the PO told the new congregation elers not to trust their new arrival, "Don't touch him with a bargepole" went the letter. He, (the MS servant), was a touch miffed at this.
So, I was wondering, is it still normal for this sort of letter exchange to take place between the 2 congregations involved?
Also, if that is so, how can it be an easy option to swop congregations in order to fade away?
Also, could such a letter be construed as slanderous if the new publisher / leaver is maligned in anyway?
Bring on the dancing girls!
