Hey Time Bandit, I remember being told a story from my own Father. It was concerning an older, German brother, in my Fathers old congregation in NYC.
This brother had a very heavy German accent, and was kind of "old school" in his tough demeanor, and NO nonsense, kind of way.
Well, him and an older sister were working out in service, and when they approached the door, a very large German shepherd was standing on top of the stairs before the door.
The dog was snarling, and barking, and appearing to be vicious. The older sister was terrified. The older German bro, however, said something in German to the dog, and kept repeating, "Do not worry sister, Jehovah will protect us".
The brother walked up the stairs, towards the vicious dog, pulled out a pair of gloves, and proceeded to WHACK the dog square on the snout, with the gloves.
The dog, stopped barking, yelped out a cry, and ran right off away down the stairs. The brother looked at the sister and said, "see, I told you Jehovah would protect us". Then, I assume they knocked on the door, and the householder probably told them to go away, anyway, lol.
The point is, it wasn't Jehovah who "saved" them, it was this hard assed German brother, who whacked the dog on the nose. Yes, HE had the "strength" to do it, HE had NO FEAR, HE had FAITH, you could say, but it was still HIM.
Another interesting thing, too, is that I have heard other variations of this story, and do indeed believe it to be a JW "urban legend" of sorts. I give credence, to this story, specifically, because my own Father told it to me, and actually KNEW the brother. There ARE many JW "legends", however, and they are "used" as faith strengthening anecdotes, and probably either encouraged or even started by the GB.
