Since the liberal government has been elected in Canada, it seems that people are looking to the future with a little more optimism and hope. It is only human nature that with change, we would think that the change would be for the better. The courts have ruled, in Canada, that it is unconstitutional to deny the homeless the right to sleep in parks. Others have suggested, and seem to have strong support from some groups, to open up the churches to the homeless and get them off of the streets, into an evironment where it is warm and safe. Many good hearted people in our society are trying to do what they can to help.
May I suggest that if the 'bethelites' and 'special pioneers' and perhaps even former 'district overseers' and 'circuit overseers' could:
1] live quite cheaply in a tent or shelter in one of these public parkland homeless communities. They would even have a 'territory' to preach in that is probably not on file with their local congregation.'Unassigned territory' it is called. No driving 6 hours north to some remote mountain community. Now they can just walk over to the nearest tent, tap on the flap and bingo, potential bible study.
2] live in the basement of one of the local churches, perhaps Anglican, United or Catholic. Of course they would have to behave themselves by not running down the Church offering them the living accomodations, They would have to refrain from preaching that everyone who belongs to that particular religion will die at Armaggedon and such talk as that. Many of these volunteers working at these local church charities are very willing to help the needy. Perhaps they could even give rides to the 'church homeless JW's' to the meetings at the local Kingdom Halls.
