Your comment is awaiting moderation.It is another sign that Anglican church under avcf has collapsed since 2006 and now the sign of that happening is observed in the church/cathedral building of ASC whose walls are cracking. Lets give everything to God for BISHOPGATE must be resolved sooner.
All Saints’ Cathedral building is falling to pieces???
Do we expect this belated Easter message 2014 for Anglican Diocese of Sabah and such a grave one indeed?
Why is the ASC building in such a bad stage?
At Easter we could see all the metal scaffolding on both sides of the building right up to the roof. At brief glance, I though to myself it is for repainting of the walls. So I walked around the building and then I meet a senior active member who told me that the roof is in very bad shape and could also collapse if there is a heavy rain and the walls are also cracking up. He told me that it could be the sea sand used in those days to build the Cathedral.
I could agree with him at that point but I also told him that this is very old building which could not stand the weight of the additional large and heavy porch plus the pavilion added on since Albert Vun came to ASC. Such unbalanced recent development could disturb the soil/ground of the original building.
I also told him that Albert Vun had spent a lot of money renovating the Cathedral building since he came in 2005/2006, and now after a few years similar repairs are now needed. I may not be right to make that statement.
Nevertheless, I would like to see a committee capable to do a proper review of the Cathedral building since 2005/6 to be set up as to the real situation affecting the Cathedral now with cracks and how bad are such cracks. I also think the Cathedral building had been standing since 1962 fairly well prior to the additional heavy porch and the pavilion.
It is indeed very disappointing if the Cathedral building is cracking and that the roof is likely to cave in and certainly the bigger picture of the state of condition/repair of Cathedral building is urgent.
If indeed the Cathedral building is collapsing sooner or later, it would bring us back to reflect on the greed of Albert Vun who had already destroyed the other various aspects and values such as the biblical, emotional, moral, spiritual, sentimental and traditional stances.
There were some fruit trees bearing fruits at the back of the Cathedral prior to his arrival but now replaced by some fruitless trees indicating sort of the lack of the Fruit of the Spirit or sadly the departure of the Fruit of Spirit in the leadership.
It has been a tradition that the Bishop has been delivering the Easter message at the ASC Sunday service at 7.30am service without fail. This holy Easter, the dean was preaching and the Bishop was no way to be seen. I think he has been missing for a few Easter 7.30am services already. What would be the Bishop doing at this time if not preaching in ASC? This is just another reason of the unfit Bishop hence I did address him with his name in the early part of this message.
Without the Fruit of the Spirit, and absconding himself from the Easter’s 7.30am service should Albert deserve to remain the bishop?
God bless all who read this Easter’s message and pass it on.
