Divination in a congregation in the early 80's?

    I was recently told by a jw relative about a congregation in the 80's I think in the UK but I'm not sure. This Cong got involved with divination big time, like the whole Cong pretty much. Oujia boards the works and the branch had to go in there to clean up the Cong, about half the Cong were DF'd and the whole elder body was taken down and replaced.

    This is news to me, can anyone shed some light on this?

    Not as severe as the one you've mentioned but I remember an inner city UK congregation late 80's early 90's with more than half the publishers and several elders being from different ethnic backgrounds (Africa/Caribbean) where some of the teens were mucking around with "voodoo" dolls and the like. Big elder involvement and of course all the reports of "we couldn't burn this or that" (like demons stop things burning - ha). No removals of elders.

    Probably some kid made an effigy of his least favourite elder and started sticking pins in it! LOL!

    I met a Jw from Nigeria and he talked a lot about demonism. I could see that the different culture and background made the jw experience different. I could see a congregation of immigrants getting involved with something like that

    I heard the same story in the 80's but it was a congregation in Edmonton Alberta. I think fits just a jw urban legend.
