Even funnier than that, Multiply has member churches which are listed elsewhere as JA households....and I read one stat somewhere (wiki, I think it was) where Multiply members are included in the count of JA members.....

...and remember, anyone who doesn't know Multiply, that this is meant to be a kind of ecumenical, bridge building organisation BETWEEN the JA and other churches. It is a joke, really.
