what things can we say
What sort of things could we say to people on the trolleys and going door to door to make the most of the fact that the magazines are going bimonthly from now on
ie oh will headquaters pay able to give you a bit of money for your fuel costs now ?
(Isaiah 11:9) . . they will not do any harm or cause any ruin in all my holy mountain; because the earth will certainly be filled with the knowledge of Jehovah as the waters are covering the very sea.
Read the above bible verse and then ask, "I wonder what part of this scripture being fulfilled is covered by decreasing the amount of printed information the WTB&T$ is providing?"
One could say
"notice how thin the magazine is? We know people are busy and this is to give them less to have to read. And as if that were not helpful enough, this publication only comes out half as often now - giving even more time to read less! Yay!
(I wanted to be positive in my presentation - how did I do?)

Religious Magazines Fold
The monthly American Baptist, based in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania, will be replaced by a newsletter. However, another religious journal of that era, The Watchtower, continues to grow. First published monthly in 1879 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, with a circulation of 6,000 copies in English, The Watchtower is now published semimonthly
Hmmm - and now ...
Ha ha ha they are getting cheaper and cheaper but I bet they want the same contributions though. I seen one of those stupid carts way out in the middle of no where and to actually think they put in time when they are not talking to anyone.
You could say that you are surprised that there isn't one bible on the trolley and wondered if it was too costly to give them away.
I keep a few photo copies of the old magazine covers and information(shown below), on the book case in my front entry hall. They don't seem to see the humor when they offer their current literature and I show them these old ones and ask "so what happened??" You do see a light bulb go on in their heads however much they try to hide it.
I suppose a person could carry copies of these with them and leave them next to the literature on a trolley or with the persons attending the trolley and say " JW's spent countless hours and years of their lives blanketing the earth with this literature and those who didn't take their magazines were said to be "goats" and it all turned out to be wrong. How about the literature you have here today....will it stand the test of time or are you misleading people and wasting your time too?"
