LIHUE — Jehovah’s Witnesses will hold their annual convention, “Imitate Jesus!” at the Kauai War Memorial next month. The public is welcome.
“As Christians, a core belief of Jehovah’s Witnesses is that Jesus lived his life as a model for us to follow,” said Carl Rossetti, a convention spokesman.
The three-day event will begin July 10.
The convention will examine Jesus’ life, as outlined in the Bible, and emphasize how all — regardless of their background, lifestyle or religion — can benefit in practical ways from his example and teachings. A highlight of the program will be the keynote address entitled “Concealed in Him are All the Treasures of Wisdom.”
The area’s eight congregations and three language groups of Jehovah’s Witnesses will help distribute printed invitations to the free convention over the coming weeks.
An estimated 1,000 are expected at the convention. Worldwide, there are more than 8 million Jehovah’s Witnesses in more than 115,000 congregations.
