BREAKING NEWS: 2023 conventions.


Recommended Posts

Excellent news. :)

We need to learn to live with covid, we don't live in the past with this pandemic, so it's only right and proper for the Governing Body to approve in-person conventions as soon as possible. 

Glad to see everything coming together under Jehovah's direction.

With the in person meetings and ministry resuming, I expected it to happen. Now the remaining is in person door to door ministry.

 

I wonder what will this mean for circuit assemblies and online convention arrangements that we have now. Surely this means that the 2023 Regional Convention will be in person. But what about CA? And what about those who want to view it through jw.org like now?

Very Exciting 

BREAKING NEWS 

We are pleased to announce that the Governing Body has decided that, Jehovah willing, we will resume in-person regional conventions in 2023. Branches will now begin scheduling dates and selecting venues. We pray for Jehovah’s rich blessing to be with all those involved in the planning.

I was thinking of how the convention could be released on video without spoiling it for some people who haven't had their conventions yet, and not making us wait until the last convention happens to release anything on video.  Maybe the "Convention releases" section on JW.org could include the convention videos themselves?

For someone who was as hopeful as I was for the end to come within the next year, we may have to wait a little longer. It was Jehovah who gave the direction to resume face-to-face conventions, so he will soon know that the time for the end has not yet come. Let's hope it's the last convention!

Is there something terribly wrong with me, that everyone's glad to hear this except me? 😅

Let's just pray that you get to click on "Convention releases", and find a way to truthfully answer yes to "Have you already had your convention?", and get your convention files.  😂

It depends on why you're having that reaction. If the reason is that you were waiting for the end to come, then you're just like me.

It is very easy to avoid being "spoiled". Simply do not watching anything you don't want to see, yet. 🤷🏽‍♀️

 

Even in these past years, the RC has been published online in advance of everyone having had the chance to watch it.  It takes minimal self control to avoid clicking the links..😉😐

 

also - I feel various ways about this development. 😬 But I knew it was coming...

I think I remember having to wait until South Africa had theirs close to December before any videos got released, or am I remembering wrong?

Southern hemisphere (e.g. Brasil or Africa) usually have their RCs in December. But the videos used in the conventions (jwbcov) were used to be released on jw.org in September pre-covid-19.

 

The very first RCs used to be held in May. Which means for some people, there’re less than a year left for 2023 RC. Possibly, around that time is likely when the RC recording will be uploaded in stream.jw.org for elders and MS.
