More on the Worship Service: An Upcoming Wedding is announced. An elder delivered the announcements. They were first in Kikuyu, and apparently the church fathers didn't get the memo that the successful contemporary service really doesn't do announcements. It seemed long. Then he switched to English. He said he would just mention a couple of things in English. Fair enough.

The English announcements were mainly about an upcoming wedding. That seemed innocent enough: this must be one of those weddings where the congregation is invited. No, that wasn't the point. The point was this: if anyone knows of any reason why this wedding should not go forward, he is to see the pastor. One more thing, this is the second time that this announcement has been made and there will be no further announcements, because the wedding date is getting close. So let us know.
