Always Rejoice Convention
Date(s) - 08/30/2020
This weekend concludes the extraordinary six-part “Always Rejoice”! convention of Jehovah’s Witnesses, streamed by more than 14 million households around the world thus far, and in 511 languages.
The decision to move this signature annual event to an online platform came in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and was guided by two basic principles – the love of neighbor and sincere value for life. Typically these conventions have been hosted around the United States in 688 cities and held in stadiums, large arenas, and some smaller meeting venues.
In a world where achieving a state of sustained joy may seem elusive, even impossible for many, the program explores questions like: What contributes to finding and sustaining happiness? How can you cultivate joy in the family? How can you remain joyful in difficult times?
During the final session of the convention, audiences will watch the conclusion of the feature-length film: Nehemiah: “The Joy of Jehovah Is Your Stronghold.” The program will conclude with the discourse titled, ”Find Exquisite Delight in Jehovah!” in which viewers will see how they can remain joyful in their lives and service to God, despite changing circumstances in today’s world.
Worldwide there are 8.6 million active Jehovah’s Witnesses, yet more than 14 million attended the annual summer convention in 2019. Many of those in attendance were guests, as all conventions are open to the public each year.
To stream the upcoming program, visit www. JW.org, the official website of Jehovah’s Witnesses, under the “Library” tab. Previous sessions are also available for viewing and download. There is no charge for viewing the convention, and personal information is not gathered upon download or streaming.
