    ''I think this is only the first round of kingdom hall sell offs as kingdom halls now are the only assets the watchtower have''

    It's not uncommon to have 4 congregations to share one KH on Sunday for the talk and WT. Maybe it will be commonplace to have meetings on Saturdays also.

    It’s hard to imagine someone methodically doing the same things again and again with out any tangible reward!

    I really don’t understand.

    One of my former best friend has been in the same house congregation for over 40 years. Totally perplexed me!!!

    Isn’t the google trend search more to do with many/most jw.org visitors were jws , and when they launched the app tablet and smartphone users stopped using the website? I haven’t been on it for years

    The publishing goes on as it always did. But the pioneers get their carts so they can do extra hours. At least in my congregation it was like this. Having a cart is an extra privilege

    I wonder if you'd get "reproved" ... and eventually "get a marking talk" if you made one of your OWN carts and sat by it?

    No rebellious, independent witnessing, right?

    The old-school die hards just comment that all these literature cut-backs are because "it costs a lot of money to print literature", they"re just saving money. You hear things like these.

    For a lot of them it just confirms that they really are in "the last days" and that the end is imminent. It seems to strengthen their faith even more.

    The carts simply give a presence. They are an easy way to get hours in and for many it beats plodding the streets knocking on empty houses.

    I feel pity for them watching them doing such a fruitless mind-numbing task being a gawped at or most ignored as they stand around looking miserable or texting.

    I used to feel like a traitor not stopping to introduce myself when I used to visit new towns while on business, but now I shudder when I walk past them as fast as I can. I get irritated with how pathetic they look and am so thankful that I am free and not part of it.

    Jah has made his approval of the righteous IPad for the preaching work of his new Kingdom to come.

    My dad does not like having the cart so he just stands with the literature in his hand. And it is being frowned upon
