They do have suggestions on back of one of their personal publications called 'our kingdom ministry' it has suggestions on what to say for the current watchtower and awake. (I'm a disfellowshipped witness, because sex before marriage is the worst thing ever lol)

I'm not sure. I had a friend who was a jw in high school and he hated going door to door. I wonder if anyone enjoys it or just does it out of "service".

I'm a former JW. Jw's attend a theocratic ministry school each week as part of their Kingdom Hall meeting. During this school they are taught how to speak to people out in service. JW's all use the same terms and speech.

My husband is a Jehovah's Witness and he said No, but if they're from the same congregation then they may be trained or taught the same way and it just seems like they're saying what another is.

I was thinking that too. My grandmother isn't as nice as I was to them. Lol.
How can they go knowing they might get yelled at or something?

Does that mean they excluded you? You can't be a member anymore? That's not what the bible teaches at all.

These towns are half an hour apart and the lines were exact.

They sing 3 songs per meeting. pray before and after. Just teach the witnesses how to preach and do studies of the bible...its nothing creepy....boring if you ask me lol
