Aber es ist unsere Pflicht, alles zu tun, damit es wenigstens ein Jahr fuer den Frieden wird." "I think it's naive to say that 2017 will be a year of peace. But it is our duty to do everything so that there will be at least a year for peace"

  10. ........looks like the convention theme is based on this article.......if this is correct...... even if it is not the convention theme for next year it is a fantastic article for our time ..... though it was published in 2005 it is so very fitting for our time. It could have been written today! part of article: *** w05 6/1 pp. 29-30 Do Not Give Up in Doing What Is Fine *** Do Not Give Up in Doing What Is Fine ........ This is particularly noteworthy when we consider the stresses and strains we face during these “critical times hard to deal with.” ........Nevertheless, the apostle Paul admonished: “Let us not give up in doing what is fine, for in due season we shall reap if we do not tire out.” (Galatians 6:9)........ Remember that Jehovah loves you. Put full trust in Jehovah. Trust in Jehovah is essential, especially when trials seem to be unending or life threatening. We must have implicit trust that Jehovah will not allow any test ‘beyond what we can bear,’ that he will always “make the way out.” Even the threat of death can be faced courageously when our trust is in Jehovah.— Persevere in prayer. Heartfelt prayer is vital. ...... If Jehovah allows our trial to continue as a test of our integrity, we pray for his help to endure. (Luke 22:41-43) Prayer teaches us that we are never alone, that with Jehovah on our side, we will always come off victorious. Fine Works—‘Cause for Praise and Honor’ ..... we must “not give up in doing what is fine.......Take full advantage of all spiritual provisions from Jehovah to build you up. .....Be regular in attending all congregation meetings, ... A program of daily Bible reading and personal study will help keep you alert and spiritually strong; so will having a regular share in the Christian ministry.— Remember, “he that has endured to the end is the one that will be saved.” Yes, be determined ‘not to give up in doing what is fine’!
