SDA tack­les Crime and Fam­ily Cri­sis

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Ac­cord­ing to the Sev­enth-day Ad­ven­tists: The so­ci­etal ills that we are ex­pe­ri­enc­ing in our na­tion are a cause for con­cern and should be on the front burner of any na­tional de­vel­op­ment agenda. We are ex­pe­ri­enc­ing an at­mos­phere of in­creased deca­dence with fam­ily crises and crimes at all so­cio-eco­nomic lev­els. It would seem that all is lost with nowhere to turn. How­ever, the up­com­ing 'Amaz­ing Truth Gospel Ex­plo­sion Sem­i­nar' slated for Novem­ber 11-De­cem­ber 15, 2018, along the Bois D'Or­ange by-pass road will prove that there is hope for Saint Lu­cia, our fam­i­lies and our youth. The five-week nightly sem­i­nar is be­ing or­gan­ised by the North­ern Dis­trict of Sev­enth-day Ad­ven­tists.

The sem­i­nar will be con­ducted by trained Fam­ily Life Ed­u­ca­tor Pas­tor Vin­cent Em­manuel who has over twenty years of pas­toral ex­pe­ri­ence. The sem­i­nar prom­ises to be ex­hil­a­rat­ing, in­for­ma­tive and life-chang­ing and will cover a myr­iad of top­ics such as: Who is be­hind all the crimes in Saint Lu­cia?; Seven ways to han­dle stress and en­joy in­ner peace; Seven steps to re­solv­ing fam­ily con­flicts, and The so­lu­tion for our present deca­dence.

“Our so­ci­ety needs to go back to what it once was—a place where fam­i­lies en­joyed the peace and love of each other. We need to in­cul­cate a cul­ture of prayer among fam­i­lies and teach our chil­dren, from young, how to cul­ti­vate pos­i­tive char­ac­ter traits. Dur­ing our nightly sem­i­nar I will be de­liv­er­ing from the Word of God His ideals for His chil­dren. I will also be show­ing how to live a trans­formed life. We will also have some of our out­stand­ing gospel mu­sic artistes. We will also be en­gag­ing in in­ter­ces­sory prayers for our na­tion and de­liv­er­ance ser­vices”, said Pas­tor Em­manuel.

The ser­vices be­gin at 7:00 nightly. Free trans­porta­tion will be pro­vided. Ev­ery­one is in­vited to at­tend.

Pas­tor Vin­cent Em­manuel will con­duct an up­com­ing five-week sem­i­nar.
