Members of Youth Fellowship of St Andrew’s Presbyterian Church participated in an inter-church debate on “Biblical Aspects of Arranged & Love Marriages” organized by Shekinah Ministries Pakistan in a local hotel on 12 February 2011.
There were twelve participants and the following members represented our Church: -
- Salateen Waseem Philip (for Arranged Marriages)
- Maria Khokhar (for Love Marriages)
The Team which spoke for Love Marriages won the competition.
The debate was followed by comments from the audience in which Suleiman Waseem Philip was declared the 2nd best speaker.
Rev Ernest Shams was especially invited by Shekinah Ministries Pakistan to host the event as Master of Ceremony. His charismatic skill and lots and lots of uncanny humour drew unhindered applause of the guests.
