What’s the strangest place you ever where encouraged? Over the weekend I was at a birthday party for a close friend. Half her family is hard core JW and the other half are inactive, she, her siblings and her parents are inactive and do the Memorial thing, Any ways, while at birthday party and one of her hard core Elder Uncles’ and his family where there and he was drunk of his ass!!! He started to preach to me and tell me how I’m a negative influence on his family and putting all these ideals in their head. All the time I’m thinking, “your drunk and at a birthday party”. When I asked him what he was doing at a birthday party and didn’t that conflict with him being an Elder he said “I just came to visit the family and take a few pictures I’m not eating birthday cake so, I’m not participating in the birthday events”.
Normally things don’t bother me but this drunk Elder at a birthday party telling me I’m a bad person cause I’m not a JW anymore was very strange.
So, where is the strangest place you have been “encouraged” to go back to meetings?
