Truth: Where can you find it? How can it benefit you and your family?

JEHOVAH’S Witnesses believe that all, including those who are not Witnesses, will benefit from the positive content and practical suggestions of the 2013 District Convention with the theme ‘God’s Word is Truth’ that will take place, in English, at the Assembly Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses, 101 Mestzit St, Limassol from Friday July 12 until Sunday 14. The Convention will take place worldwide in different places.
“This year’s convention theme is very important because it directs the spotlight on one of the basic family values of Jehovah’s Witnesses,” said P Ioannides, spokesman for the Witnesses. “For the Jehovah’s Witness families the Bible is the most reliable guide and counselor in these turbulent times. We believe the enjoyable convention programme, with a variety of practical subjects, will benefit not just us but also the public. Special emphasis will be given to the family and advice from within the Bible for each member of the family will be heard.”
Ioannides said Jehovah’s Witnesses give priority to personal study of the Holy Bible. For example each week families dedicate one evening for family worship, which is the study and research of the scriptures. “At this year’s Convention new tools for personal and family study of the Holy Bible will be presented,” added Ioannides.
The value of the Holy Bible as the only reliable guide for the many problems people now face will be stressed through exciting talks, dramatised Bible readings and presentations, and even two live theatrical performances, he said.
The exciting talk ‘What is Truth?’ will analyse why we can trust God’s word, the Holy Bible. The two performances will bring to life bible stories and the lessons we learn from them. Those attending will discern that trusting the Holy Bible can help them take wise decisions, improve their family life, strengthen their personal relationship with God and find true happiness.
It is estimated that four thousand people will attend the Bible-based programme. The Convention programme will be presented in English and there will be simultaneous translation in Sinhala and Tagalog all days and Vietnamese translation on Sunday only.
On all three days the programme will begin at 9:20am and finish at 4:50pm on Friday and Saturday and at 3:35pm on Sunday. Entrance is free.
