Ratabacaca: Fiji at the crossroads

FIJI is at the crossroads and the Methodist Church is content that the power has been given back to the people of the country to elect its government.

This was highlighted by Methodist Church interim president Reverend Laisiasa Ratabacaca during the golden jubilee celebrations in Suva yesterday.

Mr Ratabacaca said the journey was a long one for the church and its members needed to continue to pray for the country and give the best they could.

He said church members needed to keep the Methodist faith well.

"We give thanks to God for giving me an opportunity to stand here at the verge of a new birth; that the power is about to be given back to the people of the country to elect their government," Mr Ratabacaca said.

"Please Methodist people do your citizenship role, all those who are supposed to do this should go and cast their vote. We need to keep the faith and set our goals like our ancestors have done in the first century where their goal was quite clear to convert the Roman Empire into Christianity."

The interim president said if church goals were clear, nothing could stop the Methodist Church from reaching its goals.

"We need to travel light and take all the heavy load off that can weigh us down. We need to stand up and proclaim that God is with the Methodist Church," Mr Ratabacaca said.
