    Does the headquarters of Walmart become the new bethel, and will JW's be making a pilgrimage to Fayetteville Arkansas in the future ?

    They can be greeters...just stick their carts at the door and smile to everybody coming in....the colors are the same.

    Walmart colors with JW org pins to match. All set to go

    Dubs and Walmart shoppers. I hate it when you all are redundant.

    Interesting that while saying the world will turn on them, they put their printing and logistical management in the hands of......the world! To save cost.

    While its a smart move overall......i has to ring a little to anyone paying attention no?

    With many of the JW's in this area now downloading their study mags and other liter(ature), how much will actually be shipped by truck?

    As stated previously, I suspect WT will soon off-load printing to the 'publishers'. Most presentations will be done by electronic tablet and if a publisher wants to leave a hard copy, they'll need to print it themselves on their desktop printers.

    Apparently song books have already been made redundant. I understand the song words are now displayed on the large screen TVs in the KHs.

    @orphan crow

    How long before each cart will have its own built in printer and supply of paper? (funded by the congregation or circuit of course )

    What next? A deal with the "Golden Arches" to set up "pop up" McCafes at the conventions and assemblies?
