President General of the Ridgemount United Church Men’s Fellowship in Manchester, Michael Matthews, has said that the annual heritage celebration is a call for persons to create legacies and stand up for causes that will benefit generations to come.
“Our heritage is calling us to believe in Jamaica, and it is for us to embrace the Jamaican heritage,” he said, while delivering the message at a heritage service held on October 18 at the church located in Mandeville.
Turning to this year’s heritage theme: ‘Believe in Jamaica: Embracing our Heritage,’ Mr. Matthews said: “it summons us to embrace and have confidence in our individual selves and …to create a better society for the next generation, by building an ordered Jamaica”.
“We have a responsibility to promote a culture that is wholesome, and ensure that we leave a Jamaica that is pleasing to the eye and strengthens the fabric of the society. We are challenged today to stand up for what is right, and that which inspires and that which the next generation can enjoy,” he stated.
