Just a little heads up if you're fading or whatever.
This is a little tidbit of info that you won't find in print.
Many "elders" when visiting you in a shepherding call or when they are having a conversation with someone they consider weak, are scrutinizing the things that you say.
One specific thing they look for is whether or not you use the name "JEHOVAH". Yep, the magical Jehovah.
There was a part of me that didn't want to use that name when I realized it was all BS. On the other hand, I realized that I needed to use it for survival. If you ever read my stories about dealing with the "elders" on JWR you'd see that I made a point of using the name just to mess with them.
Now, if I get the chance I'll use the name, when talking to an "elder" in a slightly mocking way. See! I use the magic name brother...

My sister told me you say 'Dieu' or 'God' in English and not 'Jehovah'. Actually, more like 'god' with a little 'g' and no, I do not usually use the name 'Jehovah' but when I do, you know I am being sarcastic.

My wife sometimes wakes up saying "Jehovah, Jehovah, Jehovah ...." She's been having a nightmare of some kind and still thinks that the magic Jehovah incantation will help. Sigh ....
