In her remarks when she rose to speak after a two hour church service, Wahome apologized to the groom identified as David Njoroge and his bride over what she called interference of their big day.
That even though everyone would've wished that their wedding ceremony that would've run from 8AM-10AM would've been a success, things turned awful in the middle of the event with hooligans forcing the police to paralyze everything by throwing teargas in the church.
Then as one way to repay them for the disruption of their day, Deputy President William Ruto pledged to cater for the expenses of the honeymoon that the newlyweds were to go for.
After this revelation, what really kept me bothered was the fact that Mr. Njoroge and his wife to be settled on Sunday for their wedding.
For most christians who go to church on Sunday, we are used to seeing them hold their weddings on Saturday or Friday while those who keep the Sabbath (worship on Saturday) never have anything like a wedding on the day dedicated to worshipping the Almighty God.
Upon going through the Bible in my attempt to find out what the Word of God says about weddings and the worship day, I found that there's no place where the two are in one verse.
Even in John Chapter 2, you learn that the wedding at Cana, Galilee in which Jesus turned water to wine was conducted on Tuesday (third day) and not on the worship day (Sabbath).
On the other hand, the Bible has so many verses that remind christians to always keep the Sabbath (worship day) holy and dedicate it solely for worshipping the Lord.
However, one verse or rather story in the Bible that has been confusing people is Mark Chapter 2 verse 23-28.
Quoting Jesus' words in Mark 2:27 that "the Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath," most people have been conducting normal businesses on Sunday including weddings.
But weddings involve preachers having to work and not worship and considering how nasty sometimes they turn to be nowadays with secular beats running the show, the place of worship sometimes lose its purity and holding a service minutes after a wedding becomes a disgrace.
So my question is, will it be a curse if you hold a wedding on worship day?
