First bit of infomation about the convention included in the workbook

 

attachicon.gif202016131_E_cnt_2.jpg

It looks like last year's. I presume inside is the theme and the theme of the public talk.

 

Now, we can deduce from the questions that theme is related to loyalty.

 

For reference, last convention with a loyalty theme was in 1981: Kingdom Loyalty.

 

Will it be necessary to open our annual Regional Convention Spoiler Thread?

Perhaps it is "Cherish Loyalty!", based on Micah 6:8.

 

For the past few years, the assemblies and conventions for a given service year have had related themes. For example, we currently have the "Imitate Jesus!" Convention, and then the "Imitate Jehovah!" and "Imitate Their Faith" Circuit Assemblies. Other times, they have all been based around a certain scripture. For example, in 2011, we had the "Let God's Kingdom Come!" Convention, the "Let God's Name Be Sanctified" Circuit Assembly, and the "Let God's Will Take Place" Special Assembly Day, all based around Matthew 6:9, 10.

 

If it is again based around a scripture, it could be Micah 6:8: "Cherish Loyalty" Regional Convention,  "Exercise Justice" Circuit Assembly, "Walk in Modesty" Circuit Assembly. Just a guess :)

Very good line of thinking. Also, "Safeguard Your Heart" DC, "Safeguard Your Mind" CA, and "Safeguard Your Conscience" SAD. Don't forget "God's Word Is Truth" DC, "God's Word is Beneficial for Teaching" CA, and "God's Word Exerts Power" SAD. "Cherish Loyalty" is actually a really good guess. That's what I thought of as well.

Why does this Local Needs have to tie into the whole meeting?

I don't think the subject will tie in (necessarily), but the placement of the part, the timing, the chairman and the whole flow of the new format will continue (since it is all just ONE meeting now).  After 60 years doing it a different way, I enjoy the change.

For our local needs part last night, all the elders went on stage and each in turn commented on what he appreciated about the congregation. So, a "Local Needs" part should be about just what it implies, a part on what the elders think the congregation needs, and boy did we need that.
