This is a social group for those who have learned the truth about the "Truth" from the Jehovah's Witness organization or Watchtower Bible and Tract Society. This group is for everyone who has left, or has serious doubts and is considering leaving the JW's. We want you to know that you are not alone, it can be a difficult transition and we are here to support you on your journey. We also welcome anyone with questions about life after the watchtower or questions about the damage the organization does to families.
The main purpose of this group is help re-establish a local community of friends who care about and support each other following the often jarring action of being shunned. We aim to provide a place to meet and talk to others who have been damaged or who feel the residual effects of the organization. We are open to anyone who has been affected by the WTBTS, or has family that are still involved in the organization, or for any "worldly" person who has a heart-felt desire to share love and fellowship and community.
This group is created in the spirit of community, and as such we strive to maintain an atmosphere of acceptance and support in all interactions between members. We are here to share our common experiences and offer encouragement and advice for going forward. While some may find comfort in other beliefs this is by no means a place to try and convert anyone. Friendly discussion about paths members have taken post-JW are welcome, and questions are encouraged with a tone of mutual respect.
