    Committed and determined

    Faithful to their cause and belief structure

    Reliable and trustworthy

    Hardworking and conscientious to their cause

    Genuine in their faith

    Even though I fundamentally disagree with them -I do like them...

    Happy Christmas guys (is it ok to say that?)

    Well thanks I think. And sure you can say that even though we don't celebrate it. I hope you have a great time with your family during this time............

    What significant days do you and your family celebrate during the year?

    Thank you; beloved and I will be having a good time I hope.

    There is much vehement disagreement between members in this forum (and rightly so I guess), so I just felt it right to recognise some qualities. There is nothing clandestine in my post Galv.

    I would have to agree. I've yet to meet a JW who I did like. Most seem rather nice......even though you may get a bit bothered by the knock at the door. They are not sending their children out into the streets to blow themslves up, they are not locked away in some compound with guns ablaze etc.

    Not bad coming from a forked tongued non-JW, eh Galveston?

    If I may speak for Galv, since this may be his last post πŸ˜›, I believe that they don't celebrate any days.

    Of course, I rather like the Jewish approach myself. Pretty much every month there is a day or two to party.

    I had a sister-in-law for a while who became a JW after a fling with 'sinfulness', who was one of the most kindhearted persons I knew. Her two daughters and I played a game we called "monster meeting" when they were little, and the mom never interfered with any JW criticism of the idea. It was a loving family. They went on, not to college and career, but to study, among other things, American Sign Language. Perhaps as an avenue for their witnessing, I don't know; but it was also useful for income. So in my experience, including the infrequent doorknocks, JWs are fine by me. Given their distaste for engagement in secular government, I don't feel threatened.

    Lol. No it's not my last...yet! But as long as a celibration does not have any pagan or nationalistic flavour to, I'm in especially if there is food.

    There are a lot of good people on this planet and with our numbers only about 8 million, we are only a small percentage of the good ones that are on this planet.
    So even though we never doubt the love the JW's have among ourselves and the agreement we share, we are well aware that the world is full of good people and that God knows and appreciates them too.
