At a time when the desire for better government is on the minds of people the world over, Jehovah’s Witnesses will launch an international campaign to bring attention to a universal solution. The Witnesses will feature a special edition of The Watchtower magazine, available in over 780 languages in print and online, with the theme “What Is God’s Kingdom?”

Local volunteers from La Crescenta and surrounding neighborhoods distributed this special edition magazine starting in September.

“I consider it a privilege to participate in this campaign,” said longtime La Cañada Flintridge resident Mary Lou Sleeper. “My personal feeling is that this campaign is evidence that everyone should have an opportunity to understand what God’s government is, and how it will benefit all.”

Throughout the centuries, millions of Jesus’ followers have prayed the words “thy Kingdom come” but wonder what that Kingdom is, what it will accomplish and when it will come. To answer those age-old questions, the Witnesses’ special edition magazine will reference key Bible passages. The clear and simple explanations have been designed to appeal to both new and experienced Bible readers.

“People feel that this world is in dire need of better rulership – now more than ever,” said David Cohen, spokesperson for Jehovah’s Witnesses. “The campaign will bring a timely message of hope to our neighbors. The Bible’s promise of a real government under Jesus instills confidence in a better future, free of pain and suffering.”

During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, Jehovah’s Witnesses distributed millions of this special edition magazine through letters, even sending copies to thousands of government officials worldwide. Now that they have returned to their door-to-door public ministry post-pandemic, this will be the first in-person campaign where they will have the opportunity to discuss the important and very timely subject with their neighbors.

A free digital copy of this special issue of The Watchtower, as well as information about the activities of Jehovah’s Witnesses, is available at The Witnesses’ site offers practical Bible-based content for people of all ages and beliefs in over 1,070 languages.
