    My very much indoctrinated aunt sends me lovely care packages w/the mags, sometimes the mags on cd, new releases, etc. She's done it for years- ever since I became inactive. Before I found out The Truth, I would just stack them unread in the closet. Now I trash the public editions and keep the kool-aid for our discussions here. Anyway my aunt wrote something in the letter she sent with the latest shipment that made me lol. She wrote "enclosed are the June & July issues, enjoy." Maybe its just my weird sense of humor but "enjoy?" I dont remember ever, not one time having enjoyed reading the WT & A. It was like the cod liver oil my mom used to make us take by the spoonful; you do it cause you have to & its somehow supposed to be good for you. When I placed the mags in FS I never told people to enjoy like I was giving them a bag of freshly baked cookies!

    SERENTYNOW ! - My 83 yr.old JW mom has told me the same thing when occasionally sending some WT Awake or WT magazine. " Enjoy ! " It's like- Yeah right. Enjoy WHAT ?? LOL ! The only enjoyment I get out of it is exposing the lunacy and nutcase beliefs here on the board- thus my interest is in freeing people's minds ! Peace out, Mr. Flipper

    I believe Satan says the same thing as you enter the Gates Of Hell...... "ENJOY"

    I get those on occasion too. My mom sent the new brochures after their DC, and I was actually really looking forward to reading them...and I DID enjoy! I enjoyed a good laugh.

    Isn't it funny? I guess they think they're 'planting a seed', while counting time and placements, of course.

    Y'all are funny! I should let you know about the enjoyable subjects contained in my latest mags: sin, unemployment, stress, and god's name. How can I not enjoy that?

    sin, unemployment, stress, and god's name

    Wow, I like ALL of those subjects! Send them to me when you're done with them.

    When I was young, I actually did enjoy reading the Awakes. They had some non-JW articles in them.

    One of the articles was a general info article about the African kingdom of Lesotho. I'd never heard of Lesotho before. I found it fascinating and ended up naming my cat Moshoeshoe after the king of Lesotho.

    Of course, I was a young girl and still in the Borg. Now I can't bear to read the rags because they are so vapid.

    You can do what i did and called Bethel directly and cancelled the subscription that my mother put in for me.

  • serenitynow!

    You know they don't have subscriptions anymore right? They stopped those like 20 years ago.
