They also handed me a written apology. It is regrettable that a prayer of praise was treated so disrespectfully. I was told this was due to ignorance. I accepted their sincere apologies and prayed with them. I was assured that they will be very careful in future. The Christmas season is one of joy, peace and reconciliation. With these sentiments, I closed the matter.”
