The theme for the 2022 convention is “Pursue Peace.” The program on peace will be enjoyed by millions of people around the world in 500 languages, including 100s of thousands in Ukraine and Russia.
Against the tragic backdrop of a historic conflict in Europe, Southern Oregon will unite with millions around the globe to promote the timely theme “Pursue Peace” as they participate in a six-part annual event scheduled for July and August, 2022.
Peace involves much more than the absence of conflict. All of us face trials that can rob us of peace – illness, economic problems, personal weaknesses, and damaged relationships. The 2022 convention will highlight how individuals can find real, lasting peace in their lives right now.
Jehovah’s Witnesses have been holding global conventions for more than 100 years, the last three years featuring virtual events accessed through the JW Library app or JW.ORG.
All are invited to attend the event by going to jw.org on the web or JW Broadcasting on the free JW Library app available for iOS or Android, or on streaming platforms like ROKU TV, Apple TV and others. The program is free and accessible to all.• Starting Friday, July 8th, 2022, repeats every day until Wednesday, August 31, 2022 — all dayFor more information, please contact Jehovah’s Witnesses United States at (718) 560-5600 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Learn fun and interesting facts about water in Mt. Shasta Sisson Museum’s newest exhibit, “Water is Life - Present Day.” Attendees will see beautiful photos with stories about water in our landscape and have many opportunities to interact with various parts of our newest exhibit on water. This is the second year of a 3-year endeavor, telling the stories about water in the Mount Shasta area. Last year’s exhibit focused on the history of water through early 1900s.

Relationship Recovery is a community outreach of St Annes, which meets every Monday night. If you have suffered the ending of a significant relationship, or have had difficulty with relationships in general, we provide a safe and loving environment for you to begin the healing process and build a new life. We are non denominational and everyone over 18 is welcome. Because we have been meeting online during the pandemic and have been unable to bring new people into the program we are delighted to be opening again on April 4 for in person meetings. The meetings start at 7:00 PM but we suggest that you come a little early. Food and drink will be served and it will give us a chance to meet you and share more information about the program.
This uplifting film (18 min) invites us to consider how the healing of our planet could be possible.
