Herstelling church advocates against domestic violence

first_imgIn the midst of its grand 50th anniversary celebrations, the Herstelling Assembly of God Global Outreach Centre is calling on the public to engage themselves in violence-free activities while making conscious decisions.Under the title “An Action Against Domestic Violence”, a series of activities is organised from October 19-22 at the church and all are encouraged to participate. The organisers are certain that this will aid in the elimination of domestic violence in the country.Starting from Friday, a prayer service was slated for all victims and survivors which will be followed by a street march today. On October 21, Dr Michelle Shiwnandan will lead a church service on the development of family values. The events will conclude on October 22 with a family discussion as Attorney Kavorn Williams speaks on “Domestic Violence: The Problem, The Law and You.”Pastor Ravindra Shiwnandan believes there is an important place for the United Nations Declaration on the Elimination of Violence Against Women, which sets the parameters for individuals to measure their degree of freedom from domestic violence.Shiwnandan also agrees with former UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon’s words which state, “Everyone has a responsibility to prevent and end violence against women and girls, starting by challenging the culture of discrimination that allows it to continue.”The pastor is encouraging everyone to continue to embrace our national policies to eradicate sexual violence against men, women and children along with the ongoing scourge of human trafficking.“May the length and breadth of our nation be filled with responsible citizens who embrace the two greatest commandments of life given by Jesus Christ – Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is Love your neighbour as yourself.”last_img read more
