Still remember last year’s Annual Meeting? That was a beautiful meeting full of encouragements for all of us. And if you want to review the whole event, it is on JW Broadcasting ( The meeting was divided into three parts:
During that event, the 2017 yeartext was announced and a new songbook was released. So how about for this year?

A new original song entitled "A Place That Will Bring You Praise" will be used during the Annual Meeting 2017 program. Two English videos will be posted at JW Broadcasting website on September 28, 2017 (Thursday).

It was announced that the 2017 Annual Meeting of Jehovah's Witnesses will be held on Saturday, October 7, 2017. On the same day, a dedication program for the new world headquarters in Warwick and for the Wallkill expansion will also be held, thus making it a special event.

  1. It was 4 years ago, so I really can't remember. But I don't remember any specified or specific mention of revised revelation and revised ezekiel book. If I remember correctly, there was only a clarification in the scriptures but not a mention of a new revised publication of ezekial or revelation but like I said, I don't remember. Does someone have a link to download that historical 2013 annual meeting.
