Jehovah’s Witnesses will discuss the keys to family happiness in their forthcoming series of 79 “Imitate Jesus” conventions held throughout Australasia during 2015, presented in 13 languages. The three-day convention will demonstrate how Jesus’ example can give parents and children the tools to build stronger and more united families.
The programme will include a stimulating examination of Jesus’ famed Sermon on the Mount. Stewart Walker, a spokesperson for the convention, explains: “Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount offers timeless advice that can help parents to better use their time and resources to build a more secure and loving family environment.”
Local witnesses will attend their convention at the South Auckland Assembly Hall, 160 Clevedon Road, Papakura, August 14-16. The programme will commence each day at 9.20am. Admission is free, and people of all ages are welcome to attend.
The convention will also be presented in New Zealand Sign Language, at the same venue, from October 9-11, 2015.
As the accompanying photo demonstrates, many witnesses use Te Reo Maori in their visits to the local community when discussing both local and international concerns, and the Bible’s positive message of relief and hope.
