Three-day ‘heart examination’ at Witnesses’ convention
CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS—People may often hear the expression “Follow your heart” but rarely hear “Safeguard your heart.” The latter phrase will be heard many times this weekend during the 2012 “Safeguard Your Heart!” District Convention of Jehovah’s Witnesses.
The convention is scheduled to begin Friday morning August 17, at the American- Bank Center Arena.
For the past few weeks, Jehovah’s Witnesses have put forth extra effort to extend a personal invitation to everyone from Pleasanton, Poteet, Aransas Pass, Beeville, Cuero, Corpus Christi, Floresville, Mathis, Portland, Port Lavaca, San Antonio, Three Rivers, Victoria and Woodsboro, to attend the convention with them.
The convention will highlight Biblical references to the heart. Program parts will also encourage self-scrutiny and reflection, amounting to a three-day examination of one’s own figurative heart. Attendees will see how protecting the figurative heart can help them to make wise decisions, improve family life, strengthen their personal relationship with God, and find true happiness.
Jehovah’s Witnesses invite everyone to attend and learn more about these topics. All three days of the convention, the program sessions begin at 9:20 a.m.
Admission is free. Conventions of Jehovah’s Witnesses are supported entirely by voluntary donations.
Jehovah’s Witnesses are members of a worldwide Christian religion who actively share with others information about God, whose name is Jehovah, and about his Son, Jesus Christ.
They view first-century Christianity as their model. They believe that in addition to drawing one closer to God, living by Bible principles gives purpose to life, promotes strong family ties, and develops productive and honest citizens.
