    I have observed by reading several threads on this subject of dissolving congregations and selling of KH. This is definitely a trend all over.

    This trend is certainly not one of an organization that is prospering and increasing in growth , but most certainly one that is experiencing problems ,whether its growth or lack of it,,or a real short fall in finances to keep the organization going at a profitable pace ?

    An organization that is prospering expands ,builds more and covers the world .

    An organization that once claimed to cover the world and now is downsizing at an alarming rate with the sell off of so many K.h`s , branches etc ,and mergers of K.h`s , worldwide is not a sign of growth but one in decline and trouble financially.

    JW's in the U.S.A. & Canada may be prepared to regularly drive many miles to get to a reassigned KH, but I'm pretty certain that countless UK JW's would regularly avoid meetings if they were forced to do the same.

    It is happening in Australia as well. Recently, the search facility on the Aust Govt Charities website has been greatly expanded. On exjw reddit, someone called JW-unplugged has pointed out you can search the charities website and get a list of dissolved congregations. 36 dissolved congregations in the last 3 years, including 22 dissolved in the last year.

    Better still, it doesn’t seem to include those congregations very recently merged. For example, on the charities website, my wife’s former congregation is still listed as registered, but the contact details are for the other congregation it got merged into. So there is at least one more to add to the list.

    Downsizing... reduced product output... increased asset liquidation...

    ...not exactly signs of robust financial health.

    More KH to sell... More cash !!

    In many other countries in Europe, there is a trend to do this in order to optimize the net cash into Bethel. At the end, each JW country entity is owner of all KH's...

    'wondrous contraction is now taking place!"

  • stuckinarut2

    So, for decades we were told:

    "Expansion and building is a sign of Jehovah's blessing!"

    So what does this contraction now mean....?? Try spinning this one GB

    It's speeding up!
