  • JW evangelism since COVID

    Since COVID started, instead of having JW's knock on my door and leave leaflets, they have been sending me handwritten letters with leaflets.

    I just got another one yesterday.

    Yuh. Same here. For a couple of years. We've had 4 or 5.

        And maybe the 20th, too!

              They're back to hanging around Metro entrances with a leaflet stand around here.

              I found an autobiography of someone who came out of the JW movement in Greece. I feel sad for these people.
              Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. St. John Chrysostom

                Give it time. They knocked on my door last week, and handed me a leaflet.

                  Yes. They came here a few weeks ago, too. We don't usually answer the door, and have a No Soliciting sign up, but according to everybody who rings the doorbell they "aren't here to sell anything."

                  Mr. mossy answered and I just went up and said to them, "See the sign?", and closed the door.

                    For awhile I was picking up some outgoing mail from a JW who was regularly doing this. You could tell they were painstakingly written and not short in length. In a way, it's sad thinking about how much time they're spending writing something that almost everybody will throw away immediately without reading.

                    I haven't picked up anything like that from him in the last year or so.

That's right! Blast the children in other nations into eternity, or limbless misery as they lay crippled from "OUR" bombers! This does not jell." - Leonard Ravenhill

                      Were they written in cursive?
