AS war rages in Europe, Jehovah’s Witnesses in Zimbabwe will unite with millions around the globe for their virtual annual Convention scheduled for July and August 2022, under the theme “Pursue Peace.”
Jehovah’s Witnesses spokesperson for Zimbabwe John Hunguka: “This convention is an object lesson in how peace is being achieved by the global community right now as it unites millions of people even in areas of conflict like Ukraine and Russia. The power of the principles being discussed transcends national borders, ethnic differences, and language barriers. Both individuals and families will benefit from attending the programme.”
The programme will be released in six instalments, each corresponding to a morning or afternoon session of what would have been three successive convention days.
Congregations and families will view the first convention session during the weekend of July 2-3, 2022. The final weekend of the virtual event is scheduled for August this year.
Everyone faces trials that can rob them of their peace, but at this year’s convention, everyone will discover how to get everlasting peace since different topics will be explored.
“The convention will address such issues as; How love can lead to inner peace and peace with others, how to attain peace, even when suffering illness, economic problems and natural disasters, or other difficulties; and what people from around the world are doing to enjoy peace,” Hunguka said.
All are invited to attend the event by going to Jehovah’s Witnesses website on the web or JW Broadcasting on the free JW Library app, or on streaming platforms such as ROKU TV or Apple TV. The programme is free and accessible to all.
