DON’T JUST COMPLAIN or criticise; get involved.

This was the exhortation yesterday from the new District Superintendent of the Barbados District of the Wesleyan Holiness Church, Reverend Dr McAthin Hinds, to Wesleyans and Christians who are bemoaning various ills in society.

He was delivering his maiden speech, since he was elevated to the post in January this year, to the National Assembly of the faithful from the 39 churches across the island at a service at Kensington Oval to mark Pentecost Sunday. It was held under the theme: Experiencing The Power – Manifesting The Fruit. Hinds told the congregation in the Greenidge & Haynes Stand he estimated to be around 3 500, that he wanted to see Wesleyans become more involved with the youth, arts and entertainment, and other social issues, instead of complaining about them.

He said young people in Barbados possessed brilliant, sharp minds and it would be a shame for the church to lose that intellect and talent to other avenues.
