The 2016 Rcc Karu music concert was attended by Elratam, a worship group from Jos, COCIN Rcc Abuja Youth Band and other special individuals.
The event which was scheduled to take place at the RCC Headquarters, COCIN Nyanya, was moved to the church at Old karu due to some unfinished work in the auditorium at Nyanya. Despite a lack of sufficient place, most people agree that this year’s concert was more engaging and uplifting.
The idea for this topic came up when I attended a meeting for a musical festival in RCC Karu, Abuja. COCIN, which stands for Church of Christ In Nations, is a denomination that is over a hundred years old. It started out in my state with a handful of white missionaries and has grown to become a very far-reaching gospel mission. I’m not one of her biggest fans, but I’m a fan of all things antiquated so I appreciate COCIN. Anyway, the point here today is that in the meeting, I noticed that all the men seemed to be talking with an air of importance on an issue that didn’t require such. Seeing as the church is indigenous to plateau indigenes, it is only normal that the attributes of a typical plateau culture will find its way into the church and that sickens me. *gag* There was actually a time that it was unheard of for women to stand on the pulpit and speak the word. Smh This is me calling COCIN men out. Y’all better get your acts straight and learn to alienate culture from religion. Draw a conspicuous line between the two and things will go better.
