What is up with the evil skeleton cloud in the upper left hand corner of the January / February?
Women can build houses but not pass a microphone lol
It is very clever of them to do that.
By publishing these pretty pictures (that will be hung on the wall and seen every day) it has more of an emotional impact on JWs who will see it every day.
Maybe some doubting JWs won't leave the religion if these pictures keep a "hope" alive in their minds. Just my opinion.
People, they're CARTOONS! They're MEANT to be funny!
No holding your breath under water in the New System..
You can Breath under water!
Does anyone remember that image in the Live Forever book showing a JCB being used to landscape the Earth into a paradise?
I would be interested in seeing a scan if anyone can root out a copy.
Thanks for posting, Cedars, these are really far out. The representations of Paradise seem to be changing a bit, from the 50's surburban-garden aesthetic to an ultra-ethnic utopia. Some of them have a Mediterranean vibe, and almost everyone is in exotic textiles. Yet Jesus - who was middle eastern - is still lilly white, and is in maniacal glee over organic farming and landscaping. When he hands the reigns over to dad, it's like a CGI bonanza, including 144,000 clones.
