Fort Smith, Ark. » The Fort Smith Seventh-day Adventist Church joined together with Love’s Chapel to celebrate an International Sabbath program. It was a very special Sabbath for all who attended. The church service began with a parade of flags from the United States of America, the Christian flag and the Arkansas flag. These were followed by flags from Belize, Cuba, Czech Republic, England, United Kingdom, Germany, Honduras, Holland, Indonesia, India, Ireland, Mexico, Tasmania, and Wales. The flags were carried by individuals from these countries or whose heritage is from that country. Nancy Brennan and Cindy Howell read a brief description of each country as the flags were carried down the aisle. Some in attendance wore clothing representing their country. The sermon presented by Lenton Butler was entitled “A Transcending Culture with Good News.” After the service, an international fellowship meal was held in the gymnasium. It was a bountiful feast featuring delicious cuisine from the many countries represented that day. An International Concert was held in the sanctuary in the afternoon. A variety of music and instruments was presented. A special thank you to Evelyn Butler who chaired this wonderful event. Although we are from many cultures, we are unified by our oneness as we worship our Creator and Savior.
