No final stand on issue

Luke Rawalai

THE Methodist Church has yet to discuss and finalise its stand on the series of tabu recently implemented in provinces nationwide.

Church general secretary Reverend Tevita Nawadra said the issue was yet to be finalised.

Mr Nawadra said as far as he was concerned the church had not made a final stand on the issue.

"This issue will be discussed at the next annual conference and will be decided based on a show of hands," he said.

"The idea was initially brought up by the church's correctional committee to reduce the abuse of yaqona and cigarette smoking by church members.

"The only confirmed tabu that the church recognises right now is that dealing with the observance of Sunday as the day of rest."

Mr Nawadra said other than that, other tabu have yet to be finalised by the church.
