When I attended with my husband, (I am not JW, he is over 20 yrs.) I was asked many times who I was studying with, are you studying, etc. I didn't know what they meant, husband never pressures me with this kind of questioning. Can someone tell me what would have happened if I did "start studying"? Is there a pattern of publications you are expected to read? Do they test you after each one to make sure you've ingrained it all before going to the next one? What would have happened if I had started to "study"? How often (once a week?), how long (months, years?). What is the process?
Why do I feel weird one one of the congregation members calls and asks how I am doing? I always feel like they have a hidden agenda, like converting me, which would be a lost cause mind you.
Thanks all for any comments.....
