Jehovah Witnesses to host District Convention

The Jehovah’s Witnesses will host a programme beginning this Friday, which focuses on a government that millions, perhaps billions, pray for.{{more}}

A release from the Witnesses said “God’s Kingdom government, which is requested in the world-famous model prayer taught by Jesus Christ, will be the focus of the 2011 “Let God’s Kingdom Come!” District Convention to be held at Arnos Vale Sporting Complex.”

The release said Jehovah’s Witnesses believe that the request for God’s Kingdom in the model prayer, recorded in the Bible at Matthew 6:10 (also known as the Lord’s Prayer or the Our Father), has profound meaning. They also believe that the answer to that prayer will bring significant changes to the earth and mankind. The Witnesses’ convention program promises intriguing details from the Bible’s explanation of such developments. Following three weeks of extending a personal invitation to everyone to attend the convention with them, the three-day event to be held in Arnos Vale will begin Friday, July 22, 2011, at 9:20 a.m. The daily themes are based on passages of Scripture, including Matthew 4:17, Matthew 6:33, and 2 Peter 1:11. Strengthening one’s faith in the reality of that Kingdom will be the focus of the program.

Worldwide, there are over 7,500,000 Witnesses in more than 107,000 congregations.
