Local Jehovah's Witnesses are suggesting that all Jamaicans, including non-Witnesses, will benefit from "the positive message and practical suggestions" that are to be highlighted at the 2012 Safeguard Your Heart! District Convention to be held at Sabina Park in the Corporate Area.
The Witnesses said the convention programme promises a fresh examination of Biblical references to the figurative heart.
"Through lively discourses, dramatic Bible readings and presentations, and even a live play, programme parts will emphasise how protecting the figurative heart will enhance one's spiritual well-being, family life, and happiness," the Witnesses said in a release.
Starting this weekend, and continuing next weekend, the Jehovah's Witnesses said they would put forth extra effort to extend personal invitations to everyone from May Pen, Clarendon; Mandeville, Manchester; as well as Portmore and Spanish Town in St Catherine, to attend the convention. The first of two three-day events to be held in Kingston will begin Friday, July 20 at 9:20 a.m. The daily themes and titles of programmes are based on passages of Scripture, including 1 Samuel 16:7, 1 Chronicles 28:9 and Matthew 12:34.
There is no admission fee. Conventions of Jehovah's Witnesses are supported entirely by voluntary donations.
