BCC chief reminds people that God is with his people during Majority Rule Day observance and opening of the Legal Year

Within a matter of mere days, Bahamas Christian Council (BCC) President Bishop Delton Fernander found himself reminding people during two important days in Bahamian society – Majority Rule Day and addressing the judiciary during the opening of the Legal Year, that God is with his people.At the Majority Rule Day observance, he said God has a plan for The Bahamas and its people, and during the Legal Year ceremony, reminded members of the judiciary that God is one of justice and order, reminding them that although they have the authority to judge on earth, that God is the ultimate judge of how they would have treated his children in the execution of their duties and that people should work to hear the “righteous judge say well done thou good and faithful servant”.“As we move forward as a people, we must recognize our privileges and that we do not take them for granted,” said Fernander during the Majority Rule Day observance.Majority Rule [January 10, 1967] was and is a day that all Bahamian citizens should revere, understanding that the alternative would be that many of us would have no say in who governs our country.

” Fernander said belief in God, country, and each other as fellow citizens must serve as the beacons that guide Bahamians to the next level.” Fernander said in The Bahamas, justice must remain blind.
