PM still waiting for your support.

There is a cliche' that states charity begins at home. Support to an organisation or an individual is always a goodwill I will endorse. However, I become disenchanted when such gesture is being done beyond the perimeters of ones home especially when the home needs it most.
The Gray's farm Pilgrim Holiness Church presently is appealing for support, financially and otherwise. It was after a pleasant visit to one of our sunday mornings worship, the PM announced that he will ensure that he will offer such support to the church because it is quite evident that support is needed and moreso because of the sentimental value the Gray's Farm Pilgrim Holiness church has in his life. Somehow It is quite surprising that to date I am not aware that the church have recieved any support from the PM. Yet still the catholic church whose large congregation comprise of eletes etc, recieved a pledge to support from the PM. Ofcourse I have no objections, but Please Sir, remember Charity begins at home. The Gray's farm Pilgrim Holiness Church definitely needs your support and you the public at large!!! Our roof is collapsing. Financial support is priority at this moment.

This is a protestant country, so why is the PM kissing up to the papalist? Mr. PM try supporting the Moravians!

Forbidden Reading

#1 pedro » 2012-02-08 08:09

onsignor Kenneth Richards, I know that "the Prince " by Niccolo Machiavelli was forbidden reading by the Catholics and maybe still is, so suffice it to say that Machiavelli is P M Spencer's mentor.

May God continue to bless you and guide you in your stewardship.
