I have been away from the meetings for quite a few years, but have family who are still involved. My immediate family member who is still a witness, maybe still an elder, has taken to joining the family of non-witnesses with his witness family on father's day, and more recently wishing another family member Happy Birthday and planning to attend the gathering for dinner. Still feeling the deep scars from ceasing this practice myself in the early 70's (dad disowned me, mother accused me of not loving them) when I became a dub, I am trying not to start boiling inside if they have now "changed" the rules again. Anyone got the scoop?
