Thousands flock to reconciliation

Mere Naleba
Wednesday, August 20, 2014

MEMBERS of the public present at day three of the Methodist Church jubilee celebrations also witnessed a historic event after the chiefly family of Bau participated in the traditional welcoming ceremony at Furnival Park, Toorak, in Suva.

With the Kubuna confederacy in charge of the celebrations yesterday, Bau chief Ratu Epenisa Cakobau's son Ratu Josefa Celua Cakobau, for the first time, participated in the kava ceremony in which he wore the full traditional costume worn only by those with chiefly titles.

The entire park was filled to capacity where members of the 56 divisions of the church took time out to reflect on their faith and the new journey they will undertake together after 50 years of being a self-governed conference.

Also present at the celebrations were church ministers from Australia, Samoa, Solomon Islands and other countries.

The program yesterday featured presentations from the Uniting Church in Australia and the Solomon Islands, and also the Methodist Church in Samoa.

Communications secretary Reverend James Bhagwan said another event to look forward to is the Agape Feast scheduled for Friday, which was the second phase of the reconciliation program held earlier on Monday.
