Opposition calls for spiritual awakening

The opposition United Workers Party (UWP), has called for a spiritual awakening in Saint Lucia as a national day of prayer organized by the party got underway this afternoon at the Vigie Sports complex.

UWP Communications Officer, Nancy Charles, told the Times the party has invited all Saint Lucians to assemble to petition God’s intervention to redress a number of problems facing the society.

Charles said they included a recent spate of suicides, a troubled economy, young people who are desperate because of high unemployment and violent crime.

According to her, there had been a ”phenomenal” response from religious leaders, artistes and members of the public to the event.

The UWP official asserted that the response was an indication that Saint Lucians are longing for an opportunity to pray as a nation.


She said it was the hope of the organizers that Saint Lucians will awake spiritually, love each other, look out for and have more concern for each other.


“We are hoping that the spirit of God will dwell in the minds and hearts of all Saint Lucians and avert a lot of the problems and difficulties we are having in this country,” Charles stated.

The national day of prayer was held under the theme – Break Every Chain.

    Prayers are very important. If however it was a national event, why wasn’t the other polical parties invited to participate.

      WOW! This is so brilliant I don’t even know what to say except, “Brilliant!” asked me if I’d seen your recaps and if I hadn’t, I must. She was absolutely right. I can’t begin to imagine how long it took you to do this with the hidden links and all. Amazing…the best thing I’ve read about True Blood…ever! I’m off now to read the previous ones….before tonight’s new episode airs.

    So help us God; may repentance follow suit. In keeping with the Party’s fundamental values, I sincerely hope this initiative becomes a permanent feature on your Calendar; regardless if you are in government or not. Please make it an annual event.

    Is this just a political ploy or and event to bring change to the heart of men and women as to their relationship to God? If it is the latter, then, I hope the political discourse changes and all of those politicians and the cohorts be the first to develop and treasure this relationship.

      Her “nerdiness” is so ridiculous. The line of reasoning “well, it can’t hurt!” is so illogical. The efficacy of placenta ingestion to prevent postpartum depression is absolutely testable, but good research doesn’t exist because it’s such a stupid idea. Who needs data when you have confirmation bias? It’s interesting that she attributes her good mood after giving birth to placenta pills and not to her son!

      Jerald, you are a brother indeed to me. Thank you for emphasizing some of the most important and overlooked words in the Sermon discourse: “Not everyone who says ‘Lord, Lord…but he who does the will of My Father…” (Matt 7:21)Janine, welcome to the comments section! You were brave to wade into these waters but the water’s fine for all of us! Like Jerald, I hope more put on their floaties in time…Alan, I am glad you still consider me a friend and haven’t written me off!

      Blogs make quite an interesting source for research into popular expectations on crises and recovery. (I’m writing from 3 Oct 2008 – post Lehman/AIG/Merrill/Bear Stearns)

    Spritual guidance is all around us, also as is written in Buddhism, Islam, Latter Day Saints, etc etc etc, take your pick.

    It is all to easy to reach out to one religion or another for the answer to all our problems, a spiritual panacea.

    Does one really think that UWP would be staging this publicity stunt if UWP were comfy in power and had won the last election.

    Their signature smell of desperation seems to permeate the air.

    Personally speaking, no religion is going to save us. It is up to us to save our selves based on basic human values. It’s not rocket science.
