Excessive Consumption of Yaqona a concern: Methodist Church
August 26, 2018 7:17 pm
The excessive consumption of Yaqona continues to be a major problem for the Methodist Church of Fiji.
Church President Reverend Dr Epineri Vakadewavosa says this has been an issue for the Church in the past years.
“Members should drink and do things responsibly in terms of “Yaqona”, smoking is not encouraged in the church, despite some members are smoking but we do not encourage that because that is unhealthy to the people.”
Reverend Vakadewavosa says the Church respects the liberty of its members however they have continuously highlighted that the Church has a Code of Conduct and it should be followed.
He is pleading to the Senior Superintendents in the 58 Methodist Divisions around the country to work together in addressing this issue.
