just wanted to let "y'all" know about the meetup group h-town ex-jw (meetup.com).
if you want to join feel free.. i now there are some who find it helpful hanging with people who "get" you or understand.. i have a strict rule of not outing people.
if you have that concern let me know and i will try to make sure that doesn't happen.. the next meetup is planned for march 7 ( i think that is a friday).. let us know, all are welcome.. -r.

i am in search of comments on how best to explain the concept.
when talking to witnesses it is difficult to get them to accept the organization is responsible for anything.
the automatic response is to defer any error to an individual leaving the organization free from any blame.. it is like the organization is a powdered doughnut.

i was looking through some of my watchtowers and i came across an article that caught my attention because the pictures were just too funny.
it was a life story of "janez rekelj" in the '05-10/1 watchtower.
i then noticed a paragraph which i thought was very interesting.

one that held that position, what were they responsible for?.
i understand that congregations were communal and shared resources.. was an episkope an overseer of spiritual matters or physical needs such as food and money, political structure?.
i guess i am asking an "overseer" of "what"?.

i can't say that i have gotten to this point where i would want to do this, yet.. but for those of you who are elders and former elders can you answer this question, not this one the one i am about to ask?.
would you be willing to request a publishers card from his current congregation and then give it to him so that he could disappear easier?.
also, in this situation, does the congregation send all records ( besides any in ny ) with the card, do they keep copies?.
