The JWs seems to be coming to my door a lot more often now. Had an older woamn at the door with a magazine about whether children are forced to grow up too early?
Well you can just imagine my questions!!! hehehe
Yup especially when they are forced to deal with abuse and then cover it up.
She started to tell me she didn't know if those stories were true.
Aha ace up my sleeve - "I was one of them." stopped her cold.
Then she started talking about none being in her cong. "Not what the last elder here told me so how do you know who is saying a prayer for you or sitting beside your kids?"
Then she started to say she didn't like to think how aweful that was. "Well if you don't think about it then it will just go on and on."
She then moved on to tell me what a terrible world it was. "Well the WT was a terrible world for me."
Did you get some counseling? she asked. "No we were told not to."
The poor woman just sttod there and shook her head and said she just didn't know what to say. So she changed the subject to some scripture that was supposed to be fulfillment of the war right now. I asked her for a favor - the magazine from last Nov about forgiveness.(that the elder said he would bring but didn't). I think she thought it might be helpful to me to forgive the elders or some odd thing but she promised to bring it back and invited me to the Memorial on the 16th. Been about 18 years since I was at one of those charades.
