Guest posted a topic in Jehovah’s Witnesses's TopicsOctober 30, 2016 10:33 PM An assembly of Jehovah's Witnesses was held Sunday at the Duluth Entertainment Convention Center. The theme was "Do not lose the love you had at first." Although the event was organized by the Jehovah's Witnesses, it was opened to the entire Northland public. "A lot of the parts are about how to improve family life, how to deal with stress, how to get along with people of all backgrounds, so its not so much preaching as its practical Christianity," said News Director, David Kennedy. The event attracted a crowd of about 1,800 people. The assembly is held once or twice every year in Duluth. Kennedy said the next assembly will be held in about six months and added it is open not to only members of the Jehovah's Witnesses. "Persons of all faith and people with no faith are certainly welcome to come. They'll find a lot that’s really practical," Kennedy added.

(Around the 6:00 mark). This video shows the attendants and Elders singing over and over, We are Jehovah's Witnesses and clapping hands.

DULUTH - Thousands of Jehovah's Witnesses from around the region gathered at the DECC today. It was their semi–annual assembly where many came to speak about the benefits of living in harmony with biblical principles. There were talks and interviews about how to imitate God, improve family life, deal with financial pressures and cope with stress. David Kennedy said "In a venue like this we have a lot of these assembly's throughout the world. We find all of them, not just Jehovah's Witnesses are interested when such programs come." Admission was free to the public and there will be another event similar to this one in the future. Source:
