Author Richard E. Kelly has confirmed that he will be participating in a telephone conference call sponsored by “Six Screens of the Watchtower,” this coming Saturday evening, September 26, 2009 at 7:00 PM (EST). The call will be hosted and moderated by Rick Fearon of Upper Room Ministries, the guiding force behind “Six Screens of the Watchtower.”
All persons of good will are invited to listen in and participate in the call. You can get specific information about how to access and listen to the call by following this link to Six Screens of the Watchtower – Conference Calls. The call is free (except for your own long distance call charges, if any). You’ll be able to join in after the interview during the question and answer segment.
Here is the site’s official announcement:
“Richard Kelly, author of the book ‘Growing up in Mama’s Club,’ will be our guest this Sat. Sept. 26, 2009 7PM EST. What can happen when a child is forced to adhere to strict religious ideology that he or she is unable to comprehend or believe? ‘Growing Up In Mama’s Club – A Childhood Perspective of Jehovah’s Witnesses’ answers that question by disclosing the rare insights of a boy and his day-to-day life experiences grappling with religious confusion for over sixteen years.”
“Six Screens of the Watchtower” is a good source of information about Jehovah’s Witnesses and the history of the Watchtower Society. It has a wide readership and its bi-weekly conference calls are attended by hundreds of former and current Jehovah’s Witnesses. The website has an audio collection of many past conference calls, some that you might find particularly interesting and may want to listen to at your leisure. Take a few moments and check out the many resources at Six Screens of the Watchtower.
If you have time, be sure to listen in on Saturday. Dick Kelly is a good friend and an occasional contributor to Ex-JW.com and I’m sure he would love to read your comments and impressions of the show. You can read more about Dick and his book at his personal website, RichardEKelly.com. You’ll find a link in the header that will take you directly to his blog; you can enter your comments and observations about the conference call there or here.
