My Redeemer Lives - Team Hoyt

A belated Father's Day to all you wonderful Dads out there!

This video (and the wonderful true story it exemplifies) is testimony to the great love our Heavenly Father has for us, His children, handicapped by sin, but redeemed by His Love.

The Fellowship of Catholic Ex-Jehovah's Witnesses Presents:

(approximately 20 minutes from Pittsburgh International Airport)

When: August 1st, 2nd, and 3rd 2008

The goal of this conference is to:

1. Help support Ex-Jehovah's Witnesses who are Catholic.

2. Assist former Jehovah's Witnesses who are interested in and investigating the Catholic Church.

3. Help Catholics who have lost loved ones to the Jehovah's Witnesses.

4. Equip Catholics to effectively deal with Jehovah's Witnesses both apologetically and socially.

Note: Jehovah's Witnesses are a high-control group whose theological strangeness in comparison with Christianity is mated to a demanding and oppressive internal social structure. Several features of our agenda will deal directly with the mental, emotional, and social effects of life in such a group.These aspects of the program will be of interest, not only to former JWs and family members of JWs, but also to anyone with a history in a high-control group, or anyone in a helping position with such a person.We strongly appeal to Catholic social workers, counselors, and other mental health providers to come and learn how to effectively help people with this history. Priests, DREs, and catechists will benefit from understanding how to meet the unique needs of this population as they enter the Catholic Church in increasing numbers.

I am praying for some way to open up so that I can attend this Conference. I believe that it will be very interesting and beneficial to both XJWs and Catholic clergy and lay ministers who may have an opportunity to help them.

Please register and attend this Conference! And if you have any spare prayers, send them up on behalf of my intention to find a way to get there ;-).
