@Yadda Yadda\@Ynot - It was a letter to the BOE. I saw the letter he showed it to me early because he said it will be posted on the information board anyway. I have key to the KH(I am still a JW....[pause for appropriate gasps and sounds of displeasure]) and made a copy. It doesn't seem like you can add attachments here or I would post it. I'm not that technically savvy. If you want to provide an e-mail address I can send it to I will.
I think this is a natural progression and eventually in more affluent countries WTS will take this approach. If you think about it they have been setting this up for a couple of years with the Memorial Invitations and Meeting Invitations:
1. Make arrangements with local printers(Office Depot where I am from)
2. Make the congregations incurr the expense of printing custom labels and such.
I could easily see this as a test run to them eventually saying. We will provide the study watchtower electronically, but each congregation is responsible for printing enough copies for the local congregration via the deals they have worked out with printing chains like Office Depot. Get way to shift costs. They currently do this with many of the forms as well. It is recommended that we download the PDF and print it using a local supplier.
They have got to see the vast difference between magazines ordered and magazines place in more affluent areas.
