Anybody have a hi-res scan of a distict convention badge? Good enough that I can print it and have it pass for a real badge at first glance? PM me if you don't want to post here and I can give you an e-mail.
So a couple of weeks ago, I get this tract in my door and it has dates and times for what I can only assume will be a district convention. 3 days, so I assume it's one. Yesterday, an ex-JW friend of mine got one too, but his date/time/location thing is just a sticker stuck on.
I was home when this got left on my door, but I didn't hear any knocking or the doorbell. What are they, afraid to talk to people? Or are they on some mad campaign to hit every residence and don't have time to stop to talk to anybody? What about the costs of all those tracts? Or do they have a list of ex-JWs and are dropping them off only with them? Both me and my friend grew up in a congregation 1000 miles away and if they know where we both live, their intelligence is better than I thought.
I also thought it strange that there was a sticker that listed the times of all 3 days. What's up with that? Did some local decide that? I thought they used to only invite the public to the public address on Sunday. Quite frankly, if they realize there should be a public and private Watchower, they should know better than to invite the public to the other talks. What's the theme this year? I'm sure it'll be filled with a bunch of "stay loyal", "avoid the internet" type paranoid things that'll make the public go on cult-alert if they hear it. That's why they only got invited to the one talk in years past. Is this new?
Anyways, the thing started today and it's probably only 15-20 minutes away. I'm busy tomorrow, but hell, maybe I'll go check it out Sunday. Just to see what the state of things are and see what "new light" gets revealed on Sunday. And I'm interested in a badge to blend in.
