at a recent dc, an elderly sister was interviewed.
she recounted how she endured through many years of her husband's opposition, never giving up, until finally he relented.
eventually, he bacame baptized and joined her in the full-time pioneer work.. end of experience.

i have realized lately that i have come to terms in a way regarding the beliefs of the jw's.
for over thirty years, i did my best to be a productive, supporting member of the congregation.
within the last three years there have been a number of deaths in my family.

i saw an unbelievable commentary on pbs last night about the reverend jim jones and his church.
the comparison to the witnesses that i was seeing reinforced that jws are truly a cult!
they are no different than the cultist in guyana.
