A disciple Christians can learn loyalty and faithfulness from

Christianity is more than just understanding the Bible and reveling in the joy found in the Word. It is only when a believer opens himself up and is able to share his knowledge and bring others to Christ that his true purpose in life can be revealed.
This is the lesson that the Apostle Philip shares with the world through his life and actions. As one of the 12 disciples of Jesus which also included Peter, Matthew, Andrew, James the Greater, James the Lesser, John, Bartholomew, Thomas, Jude (Thaddeus), Simon and Judas Iscariot (replaced by Matthias), Philip is considered a man close to the heart of Christianity. Even so, unlike many of his peers he was not showy or well known. Little is heard of him in the Bible but ministers of the word said what is known exhibits an essential aspect of what it means to be a Christian.
Pastor Henry Higgins of Creative Christian Arts Ministries International said Philip is a disciple Christians can learn loyalty and faithfulness from. He said he was one who was always eager to learn more and expand his knowledge of Jesus' teachings. Pastor Higgins said at times, Philips' curiosity may have been misguided but his devotion to his beliefs and sharing the good news was remarkable.
"Philip is said to be from Bethseda in Galilee along with his brother Nathaniel. He is noted mostly for bringing his brother with him to be a disciple and follow Christ when he was called by Jesus," said the minister. "He was so enamored with the Word and finding true salvation that when his brother asked if anything can truly come from Galilee, he told him immediately to come and see for himself. This speaks volumes, for Philip was a new apostle and knew little of Jesus, but his faith was so strong so early that he was willing to be out recruiting others to follow his savior in a flash."
Philip was the kind of disciple who was so thirsty for the Word that he always studied it and listened to Jesus. At times his understanding of what was being taught was flawed but he was never deterred -- even when Jesus reprimanded him. He wanted to win people to Christ and he started from his own family and friends to do so. This is also a lesson the Christian can learn from Philip -- bring loved ones to Christ so they too can experience the joys that only God can bring. Philip teaches the believer to not only be concerned about his own well-being and spirituality, but to care for their family and friends as well.
No matter how close one is to Christ, it is okay to be in doubt and to have questions, and this is the lesson Father Hugh Bartlett, priest at St. Anne's Anglican Church said the modern Christian can learn from the Apostle Philip. Much like Thomas questioned Jesus' resurrection, he said Philip had his moment of doubt and confusion.
"Philip, although a great apostle who was famous for bringing people to Jesus, at times displayed that same spirit of doubt that Thomas had. When Jesus spoke about seeing the Father only through Him, Philip implored Christ to show him the Father so he may be satisfied. This was shocking to Jesus who felt that he had been showing Philip and the other apostles God through His examples. To him it proved Philip did not understand what he had been taught so far and therefore needed further explanation."
While this may have been embarrassing for Philip, Fr. Bartlett said it showed that even though he was close to Christ he did not always fully understand, therefore he said today's Christian today should not fear asking questions and not understanding the word. The important thing he said is to find council like Philip did and clarify misunderstandings.
"People can also learn to have a thirst for a deeper relationship with God. It can be said that it was not doubting that Philip suffered from," said Fr. Bartlett. "It could just as likely be that he was so engulfed in knowing God that he wanted to have an even deeper revelation in his faith. He wanted a more concrete and substantial way to base his faith. And Christians can learn to be like this. Always thirst for more and look forward to learning something new."
Pastor Leonard Johnson, head of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in The Bahamas, Turks and Caicos and the Cayman Islands said a spirit of sincerity and trust is what Christians should be able to see when they study the Apostle Philip. Pastor Johnson said Philip was sincere and humble in his devotion to Christ and learning more about God and was always willing to do more and see more when it came to his faith.
"What I like about Philip is that he is the kind of man who when he finds something good he cannot keep it to himself," said the pastor. "When he found Christ he brought his brother Nathaniel along with him to meet the savior. There is also another incident when a group of Greeks came to see Jesus and they confronted Philip who then went to Peter and Andrew in order to gain access for them. To me this says that Philip was important to many people becoming followers of Christ."
Pastor Johnson said Philip also completely trusted Christ and never questioned his reasoning of things. And that this is shown most when Jesus was confronted by the 5,000 people who came to hear Him speak. He asked Philip how were they to feed the crowd and while Philip tried to figure it out, Jesus showed him that nothing is impossible even when it doesn't make sense or things look dark and dreary.
"Christians have an abundance of lessons to learn from Philip if they study him well. They can learn that we too need to be introducing people to Jesus as Philip always did in his time. Secondly whenever you have something wonderful, do not keep it to yourself. Philip never did. We can also learn to have a sense of sincerity," said Pastor Johnson. "Even in moments of doubt go to Jesus. God wants us to understand and come to Him just as we are even with our doubts. Also when we sense the call of Christ we should just follow and not think about what we will lose or miss. For when Jesus called Philip, he came and did not think about what he would lose. Today's Christians should also follow the voice and will of Christ and Philip is a good example on how to do this."
o Over the next eight weeks, The Nassau Guardian will engage a number of ministers of religion on the topic of the 12 disciples. They will examine each one and talk about who these men were and what the twenty-first century Christian can learn from their lives and legacy.

Adventist church to dedicate regional headquarters

The Atlantic Caribbean Union Mission (ACUM) of Seventh-day Adventists, one of the 21 unions of the Inter-American Division of Seventh-day Adventists (IAD), will dedicate its new headquarters on Gladstone Road on Sunday, October 30 at 3 p.m.
ACUM has oversight of the work of the Adventist Church in The Bahamas, the Cayman Islands, and the Turks and Caicos Islands. Less than a year old, it was organized on November 29, 2010 in Mandeville, Jamaica as a result of the restructuring of the former West Indies Union of Seventh-day Adventists which, for 104 years, had overseen the work of the church in The Bahamas, Cayman Islands, Turks and Caicos Islands, and Jamaica.
Headquartered in Nassau, Bahamas, ACUM served its 27,000 Atlantic Caribbean members from its temporary location in the Summer Winds Plaza on Tonique Williams-Darling Highway for the past 10 months. For the leaders of ACUM, the dedication is a significant event in the union's short existence.
Pastor Leonard Johnson, president of ACUM said, "The opening of the regional office of the Seventh-day Adventist Church for The Bahamas, Cayman, and the Turks and Caicos Islands is a dream come true for many persons in this region who dreamed of the formation of a union structure. We are proud of the accomplishment and give thanks to Almighty God. Our glory is not in our new headquarters, but in the God who made it possible."
According to Pastor Johnson, the building will facilitate their efforts of proclaiming Jesus Christ to the people of the Atlantic Caribbean region, thereby helping to improved the quality of life of all those who accept the good news of salvation.
Speaking at the dedication will be Pastor Israel Leito, president of the Inter-American Division of Seventh-day Adventists, one of the 13 divisions comprising the worldwide Seventh-day Adventist Church.
Governor General Sir Arthur and Lady Foulkes and Prime Minister Hubert A. Ingraham are expected to attend.

Answering Marco's classmates: Why didn't God save him

God wants you to be rich. As a child of God, you will abundantly receive wealth and prosperity. Just plant a seed, and riches will spring forth in your life. Give generously to the church and you will be in God's favor. Believe you are rich and you will attract wealth. While the messages are positive, some religious leaders say the true meaning is often not passed on to believers who tend to take it too literally. They say the message of giving in order to receive is a misguided one that indirectly influences people to become more selfish in their generosity.

BAIS announces 14th annual BahamArts festival in the midst of a revolutionary time for craft

Bahamian craft takes center stage at the end of this month with the 14th Annual BahamArts Festival by the Bahamas Agricultural & Industrial Corporation (BAIC).
From Friday, October 28th to Sunday, October 30th, Bahamian artists and vendors will be promoting and selling their unique Bahamian crafts at more than 100 booths in the Arawak Cay Fish Fry site from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m.
The festival aims to highlight the theme "Achieving Excellence".  Indeed, the festival comes at a time when Bahamian craft is taking off both at home with the opening of the new Straw Market and in the international market, says Assistant General Manager (Handicraft Development) at BAIC, Donnalee Bowe.
"We have thirty-five associations that BAIC has formed as a result of our training programs," says Bowe.  "In the first years, we did the BahamArts Festival so they would have a market for their product but we've now realized that we've gone beyond the local market and so we want to expand to the international market."
One of the major projects that the BAIC is spearheading, is to bring Bahamian handicrafts to consumers online, a groundbreaking model funded by a $500,000 grant from the Inter-American Development Bank.
"When we won the grant for handicraft industry we were one out of 212 global applicants, so the world is watching and especially the Caribbean," says Bowe.  "We're producing a groundbreaking model.  The IDB says they may use it as a model for the rest of Caribbean."
The program, which will develop and launch a virtual platform to negotiate the marketing, sales and distribution of Bahamian handicraft souvenirs, will revolutionize the way Bahamian artisans sell their products to the world.
Bowe points out that $250 million exits the country to purchase souvenirs for the tourist market, and effectively, their program will tap into that figure as well as generate employment and meaningful careers.
"We keep our ears to the ground and try to keep ahead of the market trends--we study a lot of market trends and opportunities so I think we are on target with taking our products to the global market," says Bowe.
"With the amount of opportunities we need for job creation, the opportunities we know exist is enough for us to create thousands of jobs in this industry, because once you start the shipping, all sort of jobs come into play--packaging, travel, insurance, everyone benefits and it's a total circle."
The BahamArts Festival continues to be a platform, however, for Bahamian artisans to display and market their work to the local market, as well as meet with international buyers to purchase and negotiate contracts for the mass production of Bahamian-made products.  One guest speaker, for example, is a Bahamian who is working on getting Bahamian handicrafts into the United States WalMart centers.
Though Bowe recognizes that they are standing on the precipice of exciting and revolutionary developments in the industry, she knows it will be a while before its full potential is realized--yet she still has hope.
"I am looking forward to the time when we reach our full potential of the handicraft industry to supply the local and international markets with Bahamian products," she says.
Nevertheless, with so many activities and opportunities for artisans, locals and tourists alike to engage in our rich cultural history, the BahamArts Festival will be an exciting event that will continue to promote Bahamian handicrafts.
Besides the booths, attendees can also enjoy other activities like a Mini Regatta at 9 a.m. and a 'Battle of the Bands' high school competition on Saturday, October 29th, as well as a Gala Tea Party at 2 p.m. and a grand gospel concert at 6 p.m. on Sunday, October 30th.
However, the BAIC has events lined up even before that weekend to celebrate craft culture and marketability in The Bahamas, including a specialized plaiting workshop at the BAIC on Monday October 24th and Tuesday October 25th at 6 p.m.; the Bahamas National Craft Association annual general meeting at Breezes Hotel on Wednesday October 26th and Thursday October 27th; and a National Church Service at Hillview Seventh-Day Adventist Church at 7p.m. on Thursday October 27th, where they will honor 94-year-old and lifetime straw vendor, Hadassah Rolle-Pinder.

BahamaArts Festival is on the horizon

A cultural treat is in store for patrons at this year's Bahamas Agricultural and Industrial Corporation's BahamArts Festival, October 28-29 at the Arawak Cay culture center, featuring more than 100 booths promoting the diversity of Bahamian art and craft.

Live craft demonstrations on utilizing local resources in plaiting, painting, shelling, and coconut craft; food preparation promoting Bahamian recipes; and the application of traditional medicines are all in store. Sloop regattas, concerts, youth band competitions, and the popular tea party will all be returning.

Ninety-four-year-old Hadassah Poitier was inducted into this year's craft hall of fame during ceremonies at Hill View Seventh-day Adventist Church.

"This year's celebration promises to be bigger and better, as we show off the cream of the crop of our creative minds while offering an even wider diversity of products,"said the BAIC executive chairman, Edison Key. He also says it comes at a time when there is renewed interest in Bahamian art and craft.

"This is especially so as we look forward, with keen anticipation, to the imminent opening of our multi-million dollar craft center downtown Nassau where, and we fervently hope that, only authentically Bahamian products will take center stage,"he said.

Key said some$250 million exit the country to purchase souvenir and craft items for tourists and residents and that most of the imports are generic items with the name Bahamas printed on them.

"Realizing the comfortable livelihoods that used to be, and can now still be realized from a craft and souvenir industry, especially when linked with tourism, BAIC took action,"he said."Armed with the best handicraft tutors, we went throughout the islands teaching all who wanted to learn the fine art of Bahamian handicraft creation, utilizing mainly ingredients found in the local environment.

"It was a smashing success. Thousands have taken the courses resulting in a renaissance, a rebirth in Bahamian art and craft. We want to empower Bahamians to tap into that$250 million thereby generating not just employment but meaningful careers. The fact that our BahamArts Festivals are getting better each year is evidence of the success we are having in inspiring our people to take advantage of wealth-creating opportunities right here at home."
