Looking back we had been fading without even realizing it. Life happened...and we weren't regular. Then we woke up and have actively been fading for 9 months. The last 5 we have not responded to the very few phone calls from friends, and the last two months have not turned in time.
This week we have had two elders calling, three times this week, to come visit. Our CO visit isn't any time soon. One elder is my husbands friend from the past. The other is our service overseer. Last night my husband got an email from the elder who was his friend. They want to meet up because sisters, in another congregation saw him out to lunch with a women.
Well, it is one of his partners from his practice and they were waiting for the other 3 partners. It happens once a quarter and this time of year, for end of the year financials. He didn't see any JWs nor is it even on his radar. This also coincides with our fading, not keeping up with anyone, and not turning in time so they want to see what is going on.
My husband, who isn't a born in, thinks its just ridiculous and with his career has no time to deal with it. Of course I am pissed! My brain goes in circles with what I figure JWs are gossiping about. So, from here. What does my husband do? Say? I think he should totally ignore it and not give any explanation, nor answer his phone.
