So many churches, so few Christians
Barbados has so many churches that it might make the Guinness Book of Records, according to an Anglican priest.
But the Reverend Ryan Boyce, priest in charge of the St Catherine Church, St Philip, is wondering if there are equally enough members who are of a Christian mind and likeness.
Boyce was delivering a sermon to mark St Catherine’s 90th year of consecration yesterday.
He said the church in Barbados was allowing itself to be influenced too much by what goes on in the world, and by extension the country, and was moving farther away from a Christian foundation.
The priest asked his congregation: “If Jesus were to return now, will we as a church and pseudo-Christian nation meet a smiling or an angry Jesus?” (JS)
