Hi Joel,

I know nothing about JWs, so I am looking forward to your posts in this
thread. Can you describe in general what JW meetings are like? What kind
of narrative practices do they utilize? Is there a standard "life story"?
How valued is rhetorical skill? What role, if any, does healing play in the
JW lifecourse?

I, too, am writing my dissertation, but on a "spiritual" group organized
specifically around healing.

Thanks, and good luck
