Church Ministers shared the main themes of the upcoming Sunday specialize for mothers in Samoa and around the world to comfort mothers and of course Samoa as we are nervously await for the next move in politics. These uncertainly time for everyone need a light to shine and Church Ministers shared Mother’s Day themes to comfort, to have some peace, to humble, to calm and to help the mothers and the public with some fruit of life.
Reverend Ioane Tolai, 62,(Sea) Leader of Apia West Synod and Church Minister for Methodist Church at Puipaa village told the Samoa Observer in an interview that this year’s theme is “ Ia mua’i alofa atu e pei ona mua’i alofa mai Le Atua”-“Love each other as He has loved them”. The theme was from the book of John 15 and it talks about the connection of Lord Jesus to his Disciples and us followers to love each other, respect each other by performing selfless acts of kindness and freinship.
“Jesus said I am the vine, you are the branches. Brunches which produce no fruits will be removed and the branches that produce healthy fruits are carefully taken care of. Jesus used this metaphor to illustrate his point that whoever believe in him shall flourish and those who do not believe shall perish. Love can put together two separate people to become one in Christ. Love one another as I have loved you, it’s a commandment that lead women for their Sunday and all of us forever. So if we love God, stay connected with each other in Faith.” said Reverend Tolai
We also interview Reverend Tautua Auvelio of Vaigaga Congregational Christian Church of Samoa and he said “This year’s themes is “Sili atu nai lo upu”-More than Words and it’s from the book of Titus. Paul gave instructions to Titus about the roles of specific group of people-older men, older women, young women, young men, slaves as well as general instructions to all believers about their conduct. Right living is essential because Christ gave himself for us to redeem us from all lawless deed, saving us by the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit.” said Reverend Auvelio
“It’s a same message for mothers and us, we say Gods name but our actions are different. Jesus promised his word to us and he fulfilled and completed his mission through his action not just words. In faith we had to listen and followed him. Wishing all the Mothers and Samoa a peaceful Mothers Day.
