Women strengthen faith

Luke Rawalai
Saturday, March 08, 2014

LIKE the women of Galilee, their counterparts from all walks of life in Labasa converged on the Nasea Methodist Church yesterday to strengthen their faith and commemorate International Women's Day.

Speaking at a Nasea Methodist Church service, Reverend Sitiveni Kuca reminded the women of the major role they play in their communities and that they were an inspiration for change.

Speaking on the parabolic woman of Galilee, Mr Kuca said all women were a vessel of peace and hope.

"The women of Galilee administered with Jesus in spreading the gospel to the Jews and gentiles," he said.

"This is a time for women to come together and spread the good message of unity and peace."

Church member Anne Duguvesi described the meeting as a memorable one.

"The women focused on the lives of women in Egypt and the difficulties they face," she said.

"A few women who had played roles as Egyptian women from a research they did took part in a drama this morning and we count ourselves fortunate.

"This is a day to remember and celebrate women and we even remember those who are suffering, not forgetting those going through a difficult life."
