<a href="http://www.news.jwbrothers.org/en/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/KemperArena.jpg”>Kansas City, Mo. — Jehovah’s Witnesses feel that all, including non-Witnesses, will benefit from the positive message and practical suggestions that will be highlighted at the 2012 “Safeguard Your Heart!” District Convention to be held at Kemper Arena.
The Witnesses’ convention program promises a fresh examination of Biblical references to the figurative heart. Through discourses, Bible readings and presentations and a live play, program parts will emphasize how protecting the figurative heart will enhance one’s spiritual well-being, family life and happiness, a news release said.
Jehovah’s Witnesses will put forth extra effort to extend a personal invitation to everyone from the Missouri and Kansas area to attend the convention with them. The three-day event to be held in Kansas City, Mo., will begin Friday, June 1, at 9:20 a.m. The daily themes and titles of program parts are based on passages of Scripture, including 1 Samuel 16:7, 1 Chronicles 28:9 and Mathew 12:34. The convention theme “Safeguard Your Heart!” is based on Proverbs 4:23. Strengthening one’s spirituality will be the focus of the program.
There is no admission fee. Conventions of Jehovah’s Witnesses are supported entirely by voluntary donations.
Locally, all of the area’s congregations of Jehovah’s Witnesses will be supporting the activity of distributing printed invitations to the convention. An estimated 9,500 will come to Kemper Arena this coming weekend for the Bible-based programs.
Throughout the United States, there will be 385 conventions in 103 cities. Worldwide, there are more than 7,600,000 Witnesses in more than 109,000 congregations.
