My dad hasn't spoken to me in about 18 months after we had a fight over the WTS.
(See thread I started then: http://www.jehovahs-witness.net/members/private/170916/1/Id-Like-to-Shoot-My-Dad )
So, today he calls me and leaves a message that he's having a "family reunion" on June 26 and I'm welcome to come and bring the family. He said that I'm welcome to come if I want to.
I already knew about this reunion from one of my brothers and know that my JW siblings and my mom were pitching a fit because my DF'd brother was going to be there. My JW aunt and uncle refused to come because of my DF'd brother. So my brother declined the invitation and my dad told him that, in anger, he had cancelled the reunion. Now, today, he calls and invites me to the reunion on the same date, at the same place as the one my brother was invited to. Of course, no one will know that I'm coming except my dad, if I did show up. I happen to know that only JWs have been invited.
Why is he doing this? Hasn't spoken to me in over a year and then invites me to a Hoviefest? No thank you.
