If you want to know what average Jehovah’s Witnesses are thinking, New York and New England would be a good place to start.
Before I express my opinion to the readers and contributors to this website ( I would like to explain who I am and to present my bona fides as someone qualified to comment on this website and Jehovah’s Witnesses in general.
First of all, I am an active Jehovah’s Witness living just outside of New York City.
Being a large metropolis, New York has many Kingdom Halls located within the city and several more in surrounding boroughs, counties, and suburbs.
This puts me right next to the Brooklyn Bethel headquarters, in an area where Jehovah’s Witnesses are quite active and well represented in the local population.
I earn a decent salary, but we are far from being rich.
We get by, but it can be very expensive living in a large city, even when your needs are modest.
I have been a Jehovah’s Witness for most of my life.
My parents were Witnesses and remained faithful in the Truth until they passed away a few years ago.
My father professed to be of the Anointed class – my mother did not.
