Yesterday I went and did a bit of shopping in our cong territory and I drove into the shopping area where at the entrance were two "worthies" being ignored - and there were lots of passersby.
One I recognised as an old faithful (and exceptionally genuine) elder in his 80's. He and his family have been through real unpleasantness in jw land but he has soldiered on from the early 1970's until now. It was cold and he had a woolly hat, heavy coat and leaned on a cane. He looked cold and miserable (or cold and resolute if you prefer) and I wanted to pull over, put my arm around him and say ...
"WHY ON EARTH DON'T YOU GO HOME, SIT BY THE FIRE, HAVE A CUP OF TEA AND GET WARM? ... NOBODY IS BLOODY INTERESTED! - IT'S CRAP!"
But of course I didn't.
