Rumors and urban legends abound with respect to California
witnesses. My suspicion is that envy and the Hollywood personna
have contributed to the perception that somehow Jehovah's Witnesses
who happen to live in California are different.
In the 60's and 70's I heard so many things about my California
brothers, usually from the circuit overseers or other elders.
Just a few:
Brothers giving talks wearing gold chains or tennis shoes. Elders
making shepherding calls in Beverly Hills, being handed a martini
at the door by the butler. Faddish health food diets required by
circuit overseers for their noon meals.
Is any of this true?
