Just looking at the WT CD and typed in the name of this years convention - Deliverance at Hand and was amused that the only two times this phrase was used was in the awake of april 1975 and april 1976. It was used to promote (what else!) a new book chock full of 'light' (some new, some old). So, only 30 short years ago deliverance was at hand!
