This weekend thousands of people are gathering at the Scheels Arena in celebration of their faith.
Jehovah's Witnesses from around the world are assembling for the "Don't Give Up" convention.
The morning starts with a music presentation and then continues on through the day with prayer, song, and speeches.
The theme centers around supporting each other and including everyone in the good will.
Everyone is invited and all questions regarding Jehovah's Witnesses are welcome.
Really? All questions are welcome? So we can ask how the GB receive new light without being inspired? We can ask about the Royal Commission? We can ask what the WT said about 1975?
"And when you're here it's like an extended family that you're with, and so there are friends that you can just talk to anybody and get to know them really quickly. So we really enjoy that, and we get to see diversity and everything is so nice." says Brian and Michelle Staneart.
Unless of course you used to be a Jehovah's Witness, in which case you'll be promptly ignored. They should put that in the news report. Diversity? Do we see LGBT witnesses open and free to be who they are? Do we see women giving talks on the platform?
I've been to 30 conventions in my lifetime. Not once did i ever find that "you can just talk to anybody and get to know them really quickly."
The convention continues through Sunday night.
There's no charge but a freewill donation is being accepted.
Ka-ching! Wonder what the "deficit" will be this year.
