Five year anniversary!

    No, not wedding anniversary, but five years ago today was the first time in twenty three years that we did not turn in field service time to our "Book Study Overseer". Poor guy, we really did and do care for him, but it was time to be done for good!

    We had thought for a short while that we might try to slowly fade away, maybe even going to another congregation and then fade, but we just walked away from the one we had been in for a number of years.

    We are very happy to have done so!! We cannot imagine still being there any more.

    Thanks to everyone from this forum for being here for us!!

    Love, Mr. and Mrs. Thor

    Thor that is awesome. Here's to many more JW-free years.

    eta : We too thought about fading (going only on Sundays). But decided just walking out cold turkey was more our style.

    Well done Thor. A fitting post on Thor's Day.

    It was October of 2006, I still turned in my slip, but I
    wrote out the word, "ZERO" in the hours and drew a line
    through the middle of the rest of the bottom line.

    I did that in November also, then just stopped bothering.

    It's a great feeling to be free of that nonsense.
    Thanks for posting about your anniversary. Congrats.
