i asked if they were witnesses.
i told them my son is a witness, so years ago i started doing quite a bit of research about their organization.

how awful, how un-christian beheavior, how horrible for believers with a conciense.
the wtbts, the corporations, the pr staff in brooklyn / patterson gave no official comment about the child abuse case.. only the lawyer of the "local congregation" gave some remarks.. humiliating for the victims and also for fellow believers with a conciense and good hart.
they only can questioning why the wtbts is hiding..

boy oh boy where to start?
lots of changes over the last seven years.
this week i had been reflecting on just how drastically my life has changed for the better since loosening the grip of the watchtower society.. in brief, my life seven years ago this month looked liked this; my family was very unhappy after nearly a decade of serving the "happy god" of the watchtower and being part of the "happiest people on earth".

my husband and i (never-been-jws) drove past our family member's kingdom hall the other day.
we saw him out front with several other guys mowing the lawn, trimming, sweeping, etc.
the thing i'm wondering.....does that mean he's a ministerial servant now?
