Today , we read a letter about 2017 convention. Brother mentioned a theme: don't give up (this is free translation from Croatian)
Food in the right time.
Can't wait.

And what's the original theme on Croatian?

2017 will be special for Macedonia. We won't be having a so called 'special convention' but it will be special in every way. Gerrit Lösch will be present and for the first time we will have a Macedonian and Romany Regional convention on the same time in the same avenue. Some talks will be streamed from one hall to the other, most will be held on the original language. I expect around 3000 - 3500 in attendance. The average for Macedonia is 1600-1700ish. Can't wait!

If this really is the theme of the convention, I'm sure it'll be even more emotional than the "Remain Loyal" series. Imagine the videos and examples of those who haven't given up that could be shown. Imagine another Great Tribulation video series similar to this years convention. I imagine another historic theocratic year ahead of us!

........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’!

Awesome. I wonder when they'll start to announce the dates for the conventions in the US. Hopefully it'll either be this week or next week. I remember last year we had the date announced during the week of Christmas. In previous years, it was announced the first week of January.

What an encouraging convention theme! It appears it will be based on one of the following scriptures:

 

"Therefore, we do not give up, for even if the man we are outside is wasting away, certainly the man we are inside is being renewed from day to day."—2 Corinthians 4:16.

 

"So let us not give up in doing what is fine, for in due time we will reap if we do not tire out."—Galatians 6:9.

 

"For your part, brothers, do not give up in doing good."—2 Thessalonians 3:13.

Good texts as a theme for each one of the days of the Convention!

seems very meaningful for God's people...at this particular time in history!

what a nice one-two combination!   ...   http://wol.jw.org/en/wol/d/r1/lp-e/2017242

I believe we find out our convention assignments this week in the US. I have my meeting tonight so I'll let you guys know if we got our assignment.

 

Our congregation coordinator said it would be next week for the letter to be read.  Maybe it is just us.

I'm hoping on a late convention... Because I love y'alls spoilers.. emoji6.png

We almost always have our conventions in late July-middle of August. The only year we didn't was 2014 when we had it in late June. We really enjoyed those dates because it wasn't as hot or rainy when compared to August. We're going to the Florida State Fairgrounds Expo Hall for the 3rd year in a row. We went to the USF Sun Dome for 2 years and Silver Spurs Arena for 9 years.

Here is the first look at the 2017 convention invitation. Nice, professional-looking front page but interestingly doesn't mention the theme. I apologise for the image being so small, but there are no higher resolution photos available on jw.org at this time.
