    Many of have the same "Wishful" thoughts as SBF ! It is strange that there has been no fanfare, they usually announce the date long before.

    Something is different this year.

    Morph and careful, the voices of “reason” on the forum?

    But seriously, consider what we know. That Watchtower faced a serious financial crisis in 2015 and embarked on a series of cuts to try to solve the problem. That having failed they have initiated a programme of selling KHs and other assets. And then comes the latest news of the biggest abuse compensation Watchtower has ever faced, with the prospect of more to follow. If all that doesn’t put them in a panic then what would? And if they were trying to give the appearance of running the show as normal you might expect them to make a big deal of the annual meeting. The fact they can’t even do that is revealing.

    Low profile, no ta ta 😉

    They can surprise us, maybe.

    If you watch last year’s broadcast carefully, there is an odd sort of dynamic between Tony Morris and the members of the Watchtower Society. Almost as if he was trying to appease them, while announcing further cuts.

    Is there possibly a move by Watchtower members to take over control of the Society? Does the structure allow for this? Strictly speaking the GB don’t have any legal power any more, so they may be vulnerable to a conspiracy, should it get off the ground. This assumes the presence in be movement of people with initiative, foresight and ethical independence: the very characteristics the GB attempt to drain from members and install loyalty.


    They are releasing a new book, “Honor Jehovah by speaking in such a way that you cannot be held legally responsible for anything.”

    Maybe the video feeds to all the halls didn't bring in as many donations as wanted. So maybe they will go back to having a regular business meeting, as probably required in the charter.

    Or they got tired of being laughed at.

    The GB don’t answers to the Watchtower society anymore.


  • nowwhat?

    You would think since we are in the final seconds of the final minutes of the last days. They would have something to immediately convey to the r&f.

    And THAT is probably a big factor

    The cut backs have been going on since 2012 when the watchtower closed down 20 branch offices around the world acording to their own website.Really bad PR for the watchtower to say to all the jws in 20 countries that you are now not worthy enough to have a branch office
