Radio Australia and Rev James Bhagwan

from w
I've listened to a brief talk with the Communications Officer of Fiji Methodist Church and it was a nice clear summary about reconciliation and the process of moving forward. Vinaka James.  Of course the factions really was strong about 1989 so that is rather a long time ago!  Go to http://www.radioaustralia.net.au/international/radio/program/pacific-beat/fiji-methodist-church-marks-reconciliation-between-factions/1358560

Fiji Methodist Church marks reconciliation between factions

Updated 19 August 2014, 16:38 AEST
Fiji's influential Methodist Church has staged a public show of internal reconciliation to mark it's 50th anniversary of independence.
The church has been split into often bitterly divided factions in recent decades, in which many Methodist leaders championed an indigenous Fijian ethno-nationalist agenda, while others opposed this as being contrary to its spiritual mission.
Church spokesman Rev James Bhagwan says the reconciliation events in recent days are only the visible sign of a process which has been underway for a while.
