The start of a new Memorial season is upon us. Saturday is the day for the start of the invites to look but not touch the bread and wine. The "Observer Class" is a belief unique to Jehovah's Witnesses.
Along with the invite to the masses a special effort is being made this year by the Elders to invite all the DF's, Da's and Faders.
Along with the invite a copy of the RTJ will be left with them.
Naturally we will still be treated as pariah's if we do attend but it is the thought that counts.
I am of the "Fader Class" as I don't wish to rock the boat with my Wife and extended family. I expect my visit Saturday since an Elder has already been sniffing around me but he can't start before the appointed time. My Wife will be out doing invites so no better time.
How will I handle it ? I plan on ignoring the door bell. Am I afraid of them ? Not in the least. I have been out since 1982.
I do know they are required to contact me so they will be back (again and again) until they finally catch me. I feel that wasting their time and annoying them is the least I can do amuse myself. When they finally catch me I will refuse the invitation and RTJ booklet and avoid any questions.
Are you expecting a knock at the door ? How will you handle it ?
