Godllywood’s self-help group, launched in January this year, held its second meeting on Saturday, 20 February, at the Universal Church in Plein Street Johannesburg.
This meeting was also broadcast to the provincial churches Speaking at the meeting themed ‘humbleness’, Mrs Marcia Pires who is responsible for Godllywood in South Africa encouraged women always to be humble and seek help when needed. She spoke about seven signs of pride and said that a person who is full of pride does not recognise her mistakes, she does not ask for help, she is unforgiving, wants everything done her own way, always has something to say about everything, she hates to depend on someone and does not accept criticism.
Universal News spoke to Martha, a self-help participant who shared her experiences in the group. “I joined the group after I discovered that I was battling with opening up and talking about things that affected me emotionally. I’ve always thought that as an older person I knew everything, however coming to these meetings unlocked another part of me that was willing to learn new things. At a recent meeting I understood the importance of humbleness and always seeking help from others when necessary. Today I’m a better mother and grandmother to my family,” she said.
