Methodists Church supports moving Fiji forward

methodists fiji

The Methodist Church of Fiji is now saying that dialogue and moving the country forward is the key, and the church said it will work with the government to achieve this.

As the Church Standing Committee meeting continues, the Methodist Assistant General Secretary, Reverend Tevita Nawadra said the church is ready to also take part in the process to change Fiji’s constitution.

Reverend Nawadra said they are trying to get the executives together to ensure that they have the same mindset.

  1. When feelings and faith are in conflict

    My soul is overwhelmed with sorrow to the point of death MARK 14:34
    Ever hear the words: ‘You shouldn’t feel that way. If you trusted God more you wouldn’t be emotionally down and feel like quitting. A good dose of faith and prayer is what you need!’ When the bottom falls out of your world well-meaning friends think such words ought to pick you up instantly. But they don’t; they can actually make you feel worse. Remember Job’s friends? So, what should we do when we experience these troubling, anxious, discouraging feelings? 1) Understand that feelings are neither right nor wrong. Having them doesn’t make you unspiritual and not having them doesn’t make you spiritual. They’re just human emotions we all have. No one experienced greater emotional pain than Jesus: ‘My soul is overwhelmed with sorrow to the point of death.’ He felt like he was going to die on the spot. Such deep feelings threatened His very life! Yet He didn’t hide or deny His feelings, or condemn Himself for having them. Denial only amplifies emotion. Jesus openly acknowledged His feelings, processing them in a healthy way. In the throes of anguish, He prayed twice, ‘Father…Please take this…suffering away from me…’ (Mark 14:36 NLT). The Father didn’t scold or rebuke His plea to avoid His circumstances or His feelings, and He won’t scold or rebuke you either. 2) Understand that your feelings don’t dictate your options or invalidate your choices. You can have bad feelings and still make good choices! Crushed with grief, Jesus said, ‘…Yet I want your will, not mine’ (Mark 14:36 TLB). Choose God’s will regardless of your feelings and He’ll strengthen you to handle the tough times.

  2. no longer, speak!
    Anxiety in the heart of man causes depression, but a good word makes it glad. PROVERBS 12:25
    Few things are as powerful as the right words spoken at the right time. By the same token, words withheld when their season of opportunity is gone, are a heavy burden to live with. Looking back, one relationship expert offers these moving words: ‘I remember when I took your new car on the road and wrecked it. I thought you’d be livid and come down hard on me, but you didn’t. I remember when we went to the beach and you didn’t want to go because you said it was going to rain. We went and it rained. I was sure you’d rub it in and say, ‘I told you so!’ But you didn’t. Then there was the time when I spilled blueberry juice down the front of your new white tux. I knew you’d be upset and blame me. But you didn’t. And remember that formal evening? I was mistaken and told you it was casual. You wore blue jeans and felt like a fish out of water. I was sure you would storm out in anger and leave me standing there. But you didn’t. I wanted to tell you how much I loved you and how much I appreciated you for all those things when you returned from Vietnam. But you didn’t.’ Solomon said, ‘There is…a time to speak’ (Ecclesiastes 3:1&7 NKJV). But it’s a limited time, and when it’s over it’s gone. Don’t spend your future regretting and carrying inside you the unspoken words someone needed to hear. ‘Pleasant words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones’ (Proverbs 16:24 NIV). Wait no longer, speak!

  3. To even suggest that the Methodist Church leaders were allegedly “blackmailed” by the present Government as reported in other blogs is blatant disrespect and disregard for the days of corporate praying and fasting the Church voluntarily entered into seeking Divine wisdom for an amicable resolve to the “Koniveredi” impasse.

    If anything, the Methodist Church has shown yet again, enormous spiritual strength, fortitude and Godly wisdom that only time on our knees in prayer could foster. Thanks, to the Church leaders for their prayers and subsequent resolve.

    The corporate prayers and fasting was indeed powerful. Entering with no premeditated agenda and void of any egocentric philosophy; are exactly what Godly fasts should be!!

    The Methodist Church is more than a traditional annual event celebrated in two weeks. The Methodist Church is about Sheppard’s honouring God, feeding, and nurturing the flock as her primary calling.

    Today let the world witness with awe that the Methodist Church in Fiji and Rotuma, her Leaders and members has risen above self in humility for the good of all Fiji.

    Today, the Church have, yet again proclaim that Fiji is still a “Land of freedom, Hope and Glory to endure what ever befall” us!!

    We shall see the Methodist Church growing in strength and continue her priestly and prophetic office to all of us!!

    “Today, the Church have, yet again proclaim that Fiji is still a “Land of freedom, Hope and Glory to endure what ever befall” us!!”

    You must be talking through your backside. What world do you live in, us the taukei are worried shit because, everything that belongs to us has been compromised to suit an illegal military regime agendas. Our land, our religion, our customs, our tradition, our jobs, our provident fund, everything, dickhead and I mean everything. These fucken losers get away with it because they have the guns.

    Take your shit talk and shove it up your arse. People like you make me sick, you live overseas and enjoy the freedom and want to come and give us advice. Talk to us about the freedom you are enjoying in where you are and we will listen to you otherwise Piss Off!

  5. @Tomu,

    Talk for yourself and not for every Fijian. I’m a Fijian myself and can disprove most of your worries easily.

    I’m living here in Fiji and I understand fully well why the RFMF is doing what they are doing. If you do not understand it and can’t see the reason, then it simply because you still have a lot to find out why we have to go through these reforms.

    Take your small mind and talk and shove it.

  6. Tomu..Tomu…sa ra vosa la nai liuliu ni lotu, da galu. Sega ni macala o dau curu tiko ena Centenary se Century, baleta nomu vosavosa e vu sara ga mai vei ira na dau vunau mai na century!!
