    Did anybody else notice in the convention drama when they went to the memorial the speaker called Jesus "our Lord and Savior"? When have you EVER heard JWs use that phrase? Christians, yes; JWs, no.

    I've heard it from jw's here in the UK. Occasionally in prayers.

    Also in the nwt bible in 2 Peter 1 v 11 / 2 Peter 3 v 18 and in the literature.

    Its been 20 years out for me but I do recall witnesses using that expression. Also from the UK.

    I'm from the US and any talk like that is typically viewed as 'Christendomish'.

    JWs here in NZ would find that awkward because it is far too close to how "born agains" talk .

    Only once a year at the Memorial.....maybe?

    They tack his name on to the prayers because they are told to , but all their thinking is about the God , Jehovah . He is everything. Jesus hardly comes into it.

    Never heard those words in 30 years a slave.

    I wonder what's the equivalent of that in other languages. Then I could tell if I heard it.

    Again, like Wasanelder,

    Not once in 57 years. If I had heard those words at a convention or in talk, I'm sure I would have fallen out of my chair... Christendom!!!

    To clarify, it wasn't used in general speech but yes in prayers it was used sometimes.
