Celebrating your first Christmas in decades -- or ever? Faders, you've nothing to fear from Geoff Jackson!
From the Royal Commission transcript:
ARC: "So, for example, if they (a JW) had become inactive or sought to fade without formally disassociating, and the elders came to visit and found them celebrating Christmas or a birthday, they would be found to be in transgression of the rules, would they not?"
GJ: "That is not my understanding. But again, as I said, it is not my field, that goes into policy with regard to those types of things, but from my personal experience, that's not the case."
So: Deck the Halls with Boughs of Holly to your heart's content, backsliders!
