Something just struck me as being kind of funny, and never being a JW I'm not sure if it's amusing or sad. In the various Christian churches I've attended no ones 'departure' is ever announced unless there's a farewell or party, always 'positive' - wishing the departees 'good luck'.
Am I getting this right...everytime someone is DF'd or DA'd an announcement is made, usually on Thursday nights (or whenever). If so, wouldn't it seem kind of odd if you're a JW sitting in the pews and every other week or so you hear one of 'those' announcements. Wouldn't it get you thinking...what's going on? Isn't anyone ever curious? How often were announcements made, what did you think....is anyone's announcement ever discussed with the other congregants?
