Well friends, hello. Yesterday, I received in the mail a jury summons. This has never happened to me before, because in the state of Oklahoma, they pull your information from voter's registration I believe, and of course, I've never participated in that. However, I have moved to PA because my husband's work has taken us here, and it's been a experience for sure. I've had a very emotional period, and many upon many prayers to Jah. I guess in PA, they pull your info just from registering to drive. I feel really alone at times, and I did not visit a kingdom hall here yet. I'm quite upset because on the website, in the faq section, it says you will not be excused so easily for religious beliefs, and you must go before the judge and let he/she decide. I've contacted my family and my mother said she went through this, and wrote a letter and it was enough to be excused. I will do this, but I'm not sure it will be enough. Anywho, after some research, apparently this is supposed to be a decision of conscience.... ... and my conscience tells me, that I'm not comfortable in sitting of the judgment of another, and that is reserved for God. (Matt. 7:1) Who am I to evaluation the sins of others? That's just my personal feelings. Some JW's have viewed jury service as rendering to Caesar what belongs to Caesar. (Luke 20:25) So it seems tricky. I'm writing today, to ask for advice, scriptures, support, stories from those who have maybe experienced this? or not. I'd just like to know how you feel about this situation. Thanks all, may Jehovah continue to bless you. Love, Orchid.
