Press Release: Jehovah’s Witnesses highlight loyalty
SCHELPWIJK – This year’s Regional Convention of Jehovah’s Witnesses will highlight how essential loyalty is for healthy relationships with friends, family and, above all, with God. Bible based talks, interviews and films will showcase the good examples that Jesus Christ and other Biblical figures—both men and women—gave in this regard.
All in attendance will receive practical tips taken from the Bible on how to be loyal to God in their way of thinking, speaking and acting, thus promoting both their personal wellbeing and that of others. This kind of loyalty helps to cope with life in a world full of shocking events and challenges. It also helps in the interaction with people holding different opinions, having pressing worries or facing difficult problems.
On Friday, the examples presented will help us to be goal oriented and successful, without losing sight of the needs of others or of our personal relationship with God.
On Saturday, alarming examples of disloyalty will be contrasted with motivating examples of loyalty. A full-length film will show how Bible based hope and loyalty can give us the strength to overcome even the most painful of experiences.
The Sunday program gives realistic suggestions for continually improving our thinking and attitude. Using historical facts, the public talk will show how loyal love can and will eventually defeat all hatred.
The three-day program has 49 presentations on the theme of loyalty, with 45 illustrative short films and two full-length films – one on Saturday and one on Sunday. These weeks, the Witnesses are handing out personal invitations to everyone for this 2016 Convention: Remain loyal to Jehovah!:
