BISHOP Christopher Kabunda of

Lusaka’s Family Fellowship Global

Ministries has opposed the

commercialization of Kitchen

parties saying people invited

should not be restricted on how

what to buy) is okay and yet it is

wrong because a gift ceases being

way God demonstrated his love for

humanity by giving them Jesus

without them actually choosing

him, a kitchen party present should

also be a surprise gift.

“We didn’t choose Jesus as a gift

to us from God. He was a surprise

gift to all of us on earth. He came

from the spirit of love. God

demonstrated to us what a gift

must be. A gift must come down

from the heart of the giver. It

should be a surprise,” he said.
