JEHOVAH’S Witnesses will hold a special programme on April 1 and 2 to rekindle people’s hope for a bright future.
In a statement, the church, said: “In the face of widespread economic strain, national conflicts and social unrest, surveys indicate that confidence in the future is at an all-time low in many countries.
“According to the 2023 Edelman Trust Barometer, 24 of the 28 countries surveyed are seeing all-time lows in the number of people who think their families will be better off in five years.
“Against this backdrop of pessimism, a special global programme featuring the theme: “You can face the future with confidence!” will be held during the weekend of April 1-2, 2023.”
The free 30-minute presentation will be hosted locally at all Kingdom Halls of Jehovah’s Witnesses, with a video conferencing option available.
“The challenges we face may seem overwhelming, but the Bible holds out a powerful hope for the future that can help us right now. This global programme is designed to give all those who will attend tangible reasons to face the future with confidence,” said Mr Titus Nyamupinga, spokesman for Jehovah’s Witnesses in Mutare.
The special talk is the first of two free programmes that will be held in all 118 000 congregations of Jehovah’s Witnesses during the first week of April.
The public is also invited to join nearly 20 million other global attendees for the annual observance of the Memorial of Jesus Christ’s death to be held on the evening of Tuesday, April 4.
