#Providenciales, April 20, 2019 – Turks and Caicos – Often a hot-spot for trouble, Kew Town Providenciales residents were greeted with a different kind of fire yesterday when Christians of Community Fellowship Centre and Life Centre Assemblies of God churches congregated for a service highlighting The Last Seven Sayings of Jesus Christ.
Good Friday, which is the commemoration of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.
The service was held near Rooster Black store in the area, under a tent with speakers, microphones, hymns singing and gospel ministers of the churches preaching on the final words spoken as Jesus hung on the cross.
While residents, for the most part kept their distance, hundreds were within ear shot of the messages and from time to time, made an appearance at the spot.
Sermons focused on the love of God for humankind, forgiveness of sins, alternatives to conflict and violence, individual value and worth, the family love accessible in the Church, a denouncement of afflictions and addictions and repeated admonitions for those listening to come out of where they are to experience a truly richer life in the Body of Christ.
Following ‘The Seven Last Sayings’, there was a breaking of bread; hot-crossed buns, cheese and water were served as is the traditional meal on Good Friday.
