Jehovah’s Witnesses launch campaign through magazine
September 2023 brings a “global campaign” for the Jehovah’s Witnesses worldwide and locally. A campaign that offers a “message of hope” is being launched by Bermudian volunteers of the faith. The campaign sets out to answer the question, “What is God’s Kingdom?”
An excerpt from the Public Information Department of the Jehovah’s Witnesses United States of America said: “At a time when the desire for better government is on the minds of people the world over, Jehovah’s Witnesses will launch an international campaign to bring attention to a universal solution.
“The Witnesses will feature a special edition of TheWatchtower magazine, available in over 780 languages in print and online, with the theme ‘What Is God’s Kingdom?’”
The campaign plans to address the state of governance around the world and the impact it has on people today.
Spokesperson Luke Branco said: “It is no secret that many people are frustrated with rulership. The needs of the many are not being met. Further adding to this, few leaders can agree on how to meet those needs.
“The good news is, Jesus will be the perfect ruler. He helped the often neglected, fed the hungry, and cured the sick. He is longing to solve the problems we are facing today. Our campaign will bring this much needed message of hope to our communities.”
Mr Branco said the local congregations are united with Jehovah’s Witnesses worldwide. He said they were upset with the way the Jehovah’s Witnesses and people of all faiths and backgrounds are being treated because of governance.
“It’s of high importance for us that people are reminded of the hope for the future that is centred on God’s Kingdom,” Mr Branco said. “As Jesus Christ communicated in the model prayer, the Our Father Prayer, we are to pray for God’s Kingdom. So what would that bring? Why should we want God’s Kingdom to come?”
This special edition of The Watchtower will be delivered to the members of the community across the island by local volunteers. Mr Branco explained how the local congregations planned to tackle the door-to-door ministry of this magnitude. He said: “We plan to reach out to all the residents of Bermuda, primarily through door-to-door. We organise through all five congregations in Bermuda to handle different parts of the island. We also plan for not only door-to-door but through telephone calls and letter writing.”
Although it has been a year since the Bermuda congregations resumed their individual door-to-door ministry, many of the members are looking forward to bringing this message to the community.
“I’m excited to share in the Kingdom campaign, because despite the efforts of well-intentioned world leaders, humanity as a whole is spiralling out of control,” Sandys resident Dean Grant said.
“More than ever before, people need to know about God’s Kingdom and the amazing effects that it will soon bring to life on our planet.”
