I have learned that a family member has been studying with the JWs for many months now. This is so incredibly alarming for me. I won't get into how this could cause a tremendous "ripple effect" in my life. Her husband, in customary fashion, was blindsided by this and is obviously quite alarmed. He's quite green when it comes to dealing with this and has convinced her to go speak w/ the local pastor as they "sort things out". They live in the Seattle area.
I know that in the Seattle area there are some very knowlegeable people when it comes to the Society. I truly hope I can get a hold of such a person for them to meet with and discuss things, perhaps instead of them going to the local pastor. Or maybe a meeting with several people would work better...I am open to suggestion on this. Thanks for any leads / tips / contacts. This JW recruit I am speaking of was drawn into study through her very close relationship with certain JWs. She is an open-minded individual and was not particularly religious before this. I don't think she would shut out alternate views/explanations/experiences.
Please help! Thank you!
