Kingdom Halls of Jehovah's Witnesses
Description:
A category to waymark the Kingdom Halls of Jehovah's Witnesses around the world.
Expanded Description:
The below excerpts are from the Wikipedia page on Kingdom Halls:
"Kingdom Hall is the term for the meeting place for Jehovah's Witnesses. The term was first suggested in 1935 by Joseph Franklin Rutherford, then president of the Watch Tower Society, for a building in Hawaii. Rutherford's reasoning was that these buildings would be used for preaching the "good News of the Kingdom." Jehovah's Witnesses use Kingdom Halls for the majority of their worship and Bible instruction.
Congregations typically meet in their Kingdom Halls two days each week. Meetings usually open and close with song and prayer. Gatherings held in the Kingdom Hall include Bible readings, public talks on matters such as the Bible, family life, Christian qualities and prophecy, as well as discussion of specially-prepared study articles in The Watchtower magazine and other publications of Jehovah's Witnesses. Witnesses also meet in Kingdom Halls for preparation and prayer before engaging in their door-to-door ministry. While such uses are part of their worship, Kingdom Halls are built primarily with an educational purpose in mind and this is the primary factor in their architecture and construction.
Kingdom Halls are usually modest, functional structures with practicality in mind. As Witnesses do not use religious symbols, such are not displayed on or in Kingdom Halls. An annual Yeartext, or "theme scripture", which is the same for all congregations of Jehovah's Witnesses worldwide, is prominently displayed in each Kingdom Hall. This text can be displayed in several languages if the Hall is used by foreign language congregations. Most Kingdom Halls have a literature counter, where publications are displayed, stored and dispensed to members of the congregation. There are more than 101,000 Kingdom Halls around the world."
