Adventist pastor commends behaviour, dress, of mourners at Luciano’s son funeral

It has been almost four weeks since reggae singer Luciano’s son, Menelik, was laid to rest. However,  last week Saturday, the pastor of the Meadowvale Seventh-day Adventist Church, Errol Griffiths, had words of commendation for the Rastafarian singer and the mourners.

In addressing his congregation last Sabbath, Pastor Errol Griffiths made special mention of the orderliness of the mourners and the attire of the women, in particular, who were “well covered”.

“The women were modestly dressed…their arms were covered, no showing of the flesh,” the pastor stated while on the topic of appropriate grooming for the Christian.

Pastor Griffiths went a bit further and noted that although many in the congregation were members of the music fraternity, “nobody had to speak to them about smoking ganja or playing loud music or remind them about appropriate behaviour”.


This, of course, was in stark contrast to the scenario at a certain Adventist church in Kencot several years ago, at the funeral at a prominent dancer, which descended into a trainwreck. Without going into details, the Pastor mentioned that on that occasion, when the mourners were prohibited from playing a particular type of music, they went into their cars and turned up the volume.

He, however, did not mention the dance routine from a certain female dancer which involved a  notorious “cock-up” inside the hallowed walls of the church. That situation led that particular Adventist church to take a stand against hosting funeral services for members of the dancehall fraternity.

The music fraternity was well represented at the funeral for Menelik, a student and aspiring artiste, who was stabbed to death, allegedly by a group of teenagers, who are now in police custody. Members of the Central Village SDA Church gave an item at the service and a heartbroken Luciano, also sang.

On Sunday, April 3, the funeral service for Menelik McClymont, was held at Meadowvale SDA Church, which in itself is not surprising, since Luciano was raised as a Seventh-day Adventist.
