No mention of The Watchtower.
When did Awake become the flagship magazine?
If it's truly the flagship, are they simply rearranging its deck chairs while iit slowly sinks?
Echoes of the Titanic!
In the article: "At weekly congregation meetings, volunteers are encouraged to let passers-by approach rather than trying to stop them."
Not so anymore. This was addressed at the convention. They had a demo where people did simply walk by and showed that to be ineffective. Then they demo'd it where the JW approached someone who was looking at a book. As you can guess, a positive conversation ensued and arrangements were made to call on the person at their home. My point is, be prepared. This tactic is changing.
