I had to deliver my book to a couple who are Witnesses (they asked my Witness Mother for me to drop it off) who I haven't seen in 25 years this past Monday.
They are in my book and they were very good to me when I was a kid. It's a miracle they wanted me to come visit them (they live in a nursing home). They are 74 and 78 so, although I knew it was going to be a kind of torture, my discomfort was worth it because it might be the last time I see them.
The first thing she says is, "Is it true that you left Jehovah?" (It's only been about 20 years - LOL)
I said things like I respect faith, etc etc., talked about other things, then she says, "Don't you want to live forever?"
I said, "No, I don't."
They couldn't believe it. I quickly added that I hope they would be able to live forever (I meant that sincerely) because they wouldn't be suffering their illnesses anymore.
Then another Witness bought my book the other day from Mother. I just never know what to expect next! LOL
By the way, my book Father's Touch - the new edition is finally available here on amazon.com
