Linden Churches pray for Joint Services and President
The Mackenzie Wismar Bridge where the protest at Linden began is now cleared as the protestors have taken their protests elsewhere in the town. But the bridge is still serving as a gathering point daily for protests in various forms. On Sunday the Christian community in Linden held a joint Church service at the Bridge where they offered praise to the heavens and said prayers for the land. Pastor Selwyn Sills told the hundreds who gathered in the scorching Sunday morning sun that the Church was not taking a back seat. The church he said must embrace the community.
Pastor Morris Mckinnon in his message spoke about a new day that is on the horizon for Linden. A town he said that has had a rich history.
And as they ended their Sunday service, prayers were said too for the members of the joint services at Linden and the commander in Chief. Apostle Dennis Lee in prayer said, the members of the joint services need to remember their oath to serve and protect. The President he prayed should be guided by good advice.
As part of the service there was a collection taken in the name of the relatives of the 3 men who lost their lives. The churches at Linden say those young men must be remembered and their relatives must be embraced. This week the churches are hosting prayer and fasting services all throughout the bauxite town.
