  1. Rock, thanks for sharing. Your essay kinda reminded me of Scrooge in his young years but with a twist. Always remember there was a happy ending and if you keep taking leaps of faith in your heart and steady in your course—yours will be too. Merry Belated Christmas and I pray you have a Blessed and Prosperous New Year!

  2. Rock,

    Thanks for sharing this.

    Your experiences so different, and so totally familiar, above all, the sense of being excluded

    from whole planet celebration and happiness. Faith – or enforced practice, dressed up as faith

    was part of it. Not Witnesses, just a complex mix of forced or at least unwilling

    conversions* which separated us, like Scrooge, even from close family.

    Maybe they didn’t dare change course ? Maybe difference and self imposed exclusion felt safer ?

    * every direction…
