Special Bible Talk- “FACING THE FUTURE WITH CONFIDENCE!”

Share this article

In the face of widespread economic strain, national conflicts and social unrest, surveys indicate that confidence in the future is at an all-time low in many countries, including the United States. According to the 2023 Edelman Trust Barometer, 24 of the 28 countries surveyed are seeing “all-time lows in the number of people who think their families will be better off in five years.”

Against this backdrop of pessimism, a special global program featuring the theme, “You Can Face the Future With Confidence!” will be held on the weekend of April 1-2, 2023. The free 30-minute presentation will be hosted locally at the Oakridge Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses on April 2 at 10:00 a.m., with a videoconferencing option available.

“The challenges we face may seem overwhelming, but the Bible holds out a powerful hope for the future that can help us right now,” said Robert Hendriks, U.S. spokesman for Jehovah’s Witnesses. “This global program is designed to give all those who attend tangible reasons to face the future with confidence.”

The special talk is the first of two free programs that will be held in all 118,000 congregations of Jehovah’s Witnesses during the first week of April. The public is also invited to join nearly 20 million other global attenders for the annual observance of the Memorial of Jesus Christ’s death, to be held on the evening of Tuesday, April 4, 2023.  Locally this event will be held at the Oakridge Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses at 7:30 p.m., with a videoconferencing option available.

Admission to both programs is free, and no registration is required. For more details on both these events, please visit jw.org, the official website of Jehovah’s Witnesses.
