To start Bible studies on the first Saturday in January
“We would like to ask your opinion. What would you say God’s personal name is? [Allow for response.] Notice what we read here.” Hand the householder the January 1 Watchtower, point out the article on the back cover, and consider together the material under the first subheading and at least one of the scriptures. Offer the magazines, and arrange to return to discuss the next question.
