    Someone made reference in another post that the Awake magazine had ceased publication. Maybe I missed it since I have not been on here as much in the last 6 months. Is this true? Nothing on JW.org to indicate this other than the missing 2021 issues. Last publication of Awake was in June 2020. I have not missed many meetings since Covid-19 started....have not heard one word from anyone that Awake is officially history?

    Anyone know more?

    I thought it was down to 1 issue every 2 months, for 6 issues annually. But I might be wrong.

    No indication on JW.org that anything has changed with it. All of the text indicates that it is still an actively published magazine.....but the last edition was No. 3 2020 - no issues published since.

    I googled it. Triannual. But you would think no. 1 would be out by now. There goes my college equivalent course. I will have to "read" a public WT from curiosity

    The ups and downs of the magazine "awaken" of the sect of jehovah's witnesses. And its final suspension after its final launch in June 2020

    Well let's see!

    There hasn't been door to door preaching for over a year

    All kingdom halls have been shut for over a year

    There hasn't been a convention for over a year

    They aren't printing and books like they used to every year

    They sent hundreds Bethelites home

    Got rid of DOs

    Pioneers don't have to do the required hrs.

    Practicably all the young jws are leaving once they turn 18

    They are selling tons of Kingdom halls every year-so they aren't expecting a Great Crowd to come in

    And the child sex abuse continues

    What was the question? Oh that right, "Have they stopped printing the Awake Magazine

    It’s definitely cheaper than paying that expensive tuition for a fancy degree plus if you have a fireplace or an outhouse it’s a bonus.

    Wow!...The Awake magazine has apparently gone by way of Sears And Roebuck Department Stores and Montgomery Ward Department Stores...finally!

    Without so much as an announcement the WTBTS Society has buried one of its landmark publications...The Awake...is this true???

    I can see how it would make sense to suspend the printing of many things during a worldwide pandemic, but surely the magazine can be available online, as other Watchtower literature is. That does seem strange, when Watchtower make such a fuss about suppling spiritual food at the the proper time.
