jeffT , a lovely heartwarming story.
kls.. you made me chuckle then saddened me as well. I know the feeling only too well
I realised in one "Road to Damascus" moment that it must all be wrong. I then set about finding more informationand having lost my fears I learned how to use the internet and found everybody. I diod not tell everything all at once. I was still serving the cong and I wanted to fade rather than walk away. I let my wife see gradually that I had lost faith in the Org. When I resigned as an elder she was initially hurt and angry but got over it a bit when she got to see what pratts they were.
She is still very disappointed and, I believe, hurt by my non belief. We have lots of arguments but we stay together. it has been a long difficult marriage anyway so I guess neither wants to start over now...
it is not a heartwarming story, but i guess that is life?
