    Laymen meetings instead of ordained ministers are all.

    there's essentially no difference between the two magazines now

    Too many watchtowers. One is enough for all.

    I don't know, but in the last 5 or so years, it's obvious the Borg is fighting to stay alive. I mean not 5 years ago the internet was so frowned upon. Now it seems all they do is push and live broadcasts. Overkill.

    OneEyedJoe - you said it right about the WT probably being dropped in the future. I think you're right.

    WTS is busy with the Royal Commission stuff so much they have to reduce Awkake and WT printing to bimonthly.

    The society dumbing down the teach book is no surprise but it is the witnesses who are getting dumber not the general public.

    Anecdotal reports have long held that the mid-week meeting often has the poorest attendance - so it looks like this revamp is an acknowledgement thst something drastic had to happen.

    As with the move to literature trolleys, watch the great sleep continue. As others have noted, the distinctive JW language (e.g., theocratic) is being phased out and bland mainstream language settles in (e.g., Christian).

    Earlier threads speculated that numbers of issues of magazines would drop - and they have. The justification for only having numbers instead of dates on the magazines is laughable: so they won't appear out of date when given to people! Puh-lease.

    A simplified message becomes even more simplified. Baby food is now the mest in due season.

    Aha instead of theocratic ministry school now "Apply yourself in the field ministry " school with 3 student's presentations of first call, return visit, bible study > concentration on field skill!

    Adult persons have to go to school for a lifetime to apply field skills

    Interesting. There is quite a lot of "this makes sense, the end is near" suck it up and get giddy nonsense.

    There has been some comment about funds running out, even counting the cost references, but this has been quickly countered with corporate support.

    It has definitely caused some questioning of fiscal responsibility but that questioning is not going down well.

    It will be interesting to see what happens as this becomes common knowledge in the R&F as by that time the AGM announcement will be happening. Maybe that will overwhelm people's questioning but on the other hand there has been so much change people are starting to get a bit jittery.
