I read in the news today that President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo declared the Iglesia Ni Cristo (INC) Day a non-working holiday. It's on July 27; and, being a Monday, it's another long weekend. Yippee!
I think this church is celebrating its 95th founding anniversary. I still remember its 75th anniversary celebration at its central church. I was caught in a monstrous traffic it created along Commonwealth Avenue. It took me more than three hours to get out of that traffic. And, most unfortunately, my gas tank got empty before I reached the next gasoline station. Thus, I always make it a point not to pass Commonwealth Avenue during its anniversary.
I'm glad it's now a non-working holiday.
CONGRATULATIONS TO THE IGLESIA NI CRISTO!
