Not a new light, just a positive light.
Sometimes on here I worry that all JWs are painted with a bad brush when I know that not to be the case. Today I was looking after a JW patient on the ward and she was the most wonderful old girl you could meet, she really made me smile, and she was bright as a button. Later her family came in, who I didn't recognise and they were just as pleasent. Real nice people, and I meet some right assholes all day.
Yesterday after work I was shopping and bumped into a sister by chance from my old cong, we stopped and had a chat, I remember her from when I was about 5 years old, and growing up, and she was still the same. Of course she encouraged me to come back to the meetings and gave me a memorial invite (I was going anyway) ...but she was and still is a lovely person.
Many here feel hurt by whatever has happened to them, and I don't want to detract from that either. But sometimes its good to keep a balance..... I'll make this statement, and then you can take from it what you want, but in my case its true...... I think *most* JWs are great bunch of people who have a special warmth about them.
You must remember people in the Org who were like this....?
