Jehovah's Witnesses to meet on weekends

Published:Friday | July 17, 2015 | 7:00 AM

The public is being invited to attend the annual Regional Conventions of Jehovah's Witnesses over the weekends of July 17-19 and July 24-26 at Sabina Park.

According to the Jehovah's Witnesses' office of public information, all attending will benefit from intriguing talks that will be highlighted under this year's theme 'Imitate Jesus!'

"This convention will examine Jesus' life, as outlined in the Bible, and emphasise how all, regardless of their background, lifestyle, or religion, can benefit in practical ways from his example and teachings," said the office of public information.

A highlight of the programme will be the keynote address on Friday morning, entitled 'Concealed in Him Are All the Treasures of Wisdom'.

Jesus, the founder of Christianity, is widely considered one of the most influential and significant men who ever lived.

As Christians, a core belief of Jehovah's Witnesses is that Jesus lived his life as a model for us to follow.

The convention will begin 9:20 a.m. each day. Admission is free and no collections will be taken.

An estimated 16,000 are expected at Sabina Park over two successive weekends in Kingston for the Bible-based programmes. Worldwide, there are more than eight million Witnesses in more than 115,000 congregations.
