PEOPLE may often hear the expression "Follow Your Heart", but rarely "Safeguard Your Heart". The latter phrase will be heard many times starting this weekend to mid-October when Jehovah's Witnesses hold 35 conventions throughout Zimbabwe.
The Harare Assembly Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses along Simon Mazorodze Road will be host to thousands of delegates from the surrounding districts.
They will be attending each of the 11 three-day conventions slotted for the capital city starting this weekend.
According to the Witnesses' spokesperson, Mr John Hunguka, the conventions' theme "Safeguard Your Heart" will focus on the Bible's references to the figurative heart.
"Witnesses believe that the figurative heart needs protection if one is to have a good relationship with God.
"Through lively discourses, dramatic Bible readings and presentations, programme parts will emphasise how protecting the figurative heart will enhance one's spiritual well being, family life and lasting happiness," said Mr Hunguka.
He said Jehovah's Witnesses were deeply concerned with the welfare of today's youth.
He said God values the worship rendered to him by young people and wants them to be happy.
Mr Hunguka also pointed out that Jehovah's Witnesses do not physically separate themselves from those who do not share their beliefs.
