The Caqiri Nasole Methodist Church celebrated Father’s Day yesterday where few fathers had the chance to stand up and preach the word of God.

Caqiri Nasole Men’s Fellowship member Atunaisa Kautoga told members of the church not to simply accept changes affecting the normal way of life.

He said this during the Father’s Day church service at the Caqiri Nasole Church in Nasinu yesterday.

“Our elders showed us love and respect which is the same as God’s teachings in our traditional behaviour. And if we want to keep our tradition then we have to teach our children,” he said.

Mr Kautoga said unity was quickly vanishing and people had to learn the importance of serving God from their elders.

“Our elders have always kept good relations within the church and they revisit family relations making sure that we, the young generation, are well aware of all this relations.

“They have more strength from us in terms of not wanting to be taken aback by the changes reaching our country that could later be a problem to us and they are dedicated to all their responsibilities and they are much disciplined,” he said.

“We are quickly adapting the western way of living and along with its dress codes which have killed our tradition and what we are known for.

“A lot of health services in our country today witnesses the changes of lifestyle which is caused by foreign or processed food which leads to  sickness and even death which  goes to show that the food planted by our elders may be old fashioned but are very healthy,” he said.

Mr Kautoga said we should learn from our elders as they portray to us a good example of a healthy and wealthy living.

“We can also learn that they drink the right amount of kava and we should be like them and work diligently,” he said.
