Rainbow High School to host Jehovah’s Witnesses’ Convention starting Friday

Believers of the Jehovah’s Witnesses faith are set to converge in Gaborone for their Annual District Convention at a time when some powerful and influential voices in academia and media dismiss or disparage belief in God.

Jehovah’s Witnesses are proclaiming the importance of the belief in God, actually promoting the strengthening of one’s personal attachment to God.

The oncoming convention is expected to present an intriguing approach to the topic: “God’s Word Is Truth!” as a clarion call to the faithful as well as an analysis of faith and reason.

Darrell Morton, the Country representative, said that the convention will be presented as encouragement for those who already believe in God and wish to deepen their spirituality.

However, the program will also feature parts that respectfully examine different attitudes nonbelievers have toward God and misconceptions that hinder many from developing an intimate friendship with God.

“The convention this year will provide families and individuals with fresh new resources for family and personal Bible study,” said Morton in a statement. “And this is the ‘something new’ that Witnesses anticipate receiving each year from our convention programs.”

Morton noted that most of the program will focus on how family members can enhance their communication with one another, based on their individual relationships with God.

The program will feature positive steps one can take to protect one’s spirituality and one’s relationship with God. The convention will provide a fast-moving series of talks that will provide a fresh examination of the aspects of God’s appealing personality as revealed in the Scriptures.

“The programme will feature two dramatic plays which will bring Bible stories and their lessons to life, focusing on God’s desire to deliver those close to him when he brings an end to wickedness on earth.”

The convention is expected to attract believers from all over the country and outside. Morton revealed that this weekend’s convention will be conducted in English and is scheduled to begin Friday September 6th until Sunday 8th, and the following weekend, the programme will be conducted in Setswana, to cater for the majority of believers starting Friday 13th September until Sunday 15th, with both Conventions held at Rainbow High School.
