“A good father is one of the most unsung, unpraised, unnoticed, and yet one of the most valuable assets in our society.”
– Billy Graham,
SISTER Krivoy Smith and the women of Ebenezer showered the community’s fathers with love, gifts and a four-course, five-star meal during this year’s Father’s Day celebrations at Ebenezer Union Baptist Church in Exuma. They were treated as kings in a royal palace.
The dining hall was decked out in a blue and green décor, with gift trinkets on the tables. Sparkling cherry flavoured cider was served in addition to crab soup accompanied by a fresh garden salad during the appetiser course.
The main entrée consisted of baked lamb, grouper fingers, ham, curry chicken served with vegetable stir fried rice, white rice and s crab and rice. To top it all off, dessert included a variety of cakes.
The men shared words of wisdom about parenting with each other and they almost all left with a prize from the trivia session, including gift certificates for hair cuts and a dinner for two.
The grand prize was a pass for two to Sandals Emerald Bay. Glenroy Munroe received the grand prize for bringing the most guests to the worship service. During his Father’s Day sermon, Rev Stephen Smith reminded the fathers and men to be good role models and examples for children to emulate.
Proverbs 22:6 encourages men especially to “train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”
