No problem 😉
Quite a few dozed during the dedication talk - Gerrit Losch - the most soporific speaker I have ever heard
I feel like I'm the only person shocked at him declaring "Hallelujah" at the end of his talk. I thought as Witnesses we couldn't say that.
I was surprised by Gerry’s final word in the Dedication talk, Hallejah! I impulsively repeated it out loud while everyone clapped, and imagined we were all holy rollers for a moment. But I was just there for the smallest bit of entertainment value, and to keep peace at home.
the hypocrisy of posting on a site frequented by apostates. I actually agree with you on that point.." from M.
I do not see any hypocrisy in a jw posting here, even if he knows he risks consequences. Wt ideas are welcome here to be picked apart, after all wt claims to be the true religion because of its supposed [superior] ideas.
Probably only publishing stats online so they can make adjustments to the # on the fly and not have to worry about print copies floating around proving the change.
A few pages back, neat blue dog asks me:
What resources on the web won't be updated or maintained??
Sorry to be slow to respond. I don't think it was announced at the meeting, but the last bullet point of the letter to all congregations dated 7 October 2017 (as revealed by Wifibandit and at least one other) reads:
No new content will be added to the following features on jw.org: “Bible Character Cards,” “Family Worship Projects,” “Illustrated Bible Stories,” “My Bible Lessons,” “Picture Activities,” “Study Activities for Children,” study guides for What Does the Bible Really Teach?, Young People Ask worksheets, and the video series What Your Peers Say. However, the existing content will remain for now on jw.org.
I am actually a bit surprised nobody else has picked that up. I think it is significant, and revealing. They are not just reducing printed material.
No new content will be added to the following features
That doesn't mean they necessarily will cut down on producing other digital publications.
Also, regarding the YB, not because of cutbacks but because it is no longer needed, same info will be published on the jw site without having to plubish a special book which would be redundant and a waste of time.
