A British worker who was forced to resign because she wanted to observe the Sabbath is waiting on the results of an appeal.
Celestina Mba worked at Brightwell Children's Home in the London-area District of Morden, caring for disabled children. She had never worked Sundays, but was ordered to do so in 2010. An employment tribunal ruled against her earlier this year, and now her appeal is being heard.
Mba is represented by Christian Legal Centre which posted an interview of Mba telling her story.
"Everything that I suggested they said no. Even when other people - like a senior there said she would do all my Sundays, he said no," she remembers. "He made several excuses so I escalated it to the point where they said to me that they would dismiss me if I don't work Sunday."
Despite losing the case after the hearing last February, Mba stands firm in her faith.
"This is for God's glory. It's not about me. It's about his glory," she declares. "He is doing something new, and I know that he's doing something new because sometimes we have to stand for what we believe so that God can do what he wants to do -- because if we don't stand, nobody can do anything."
Well-known religious liberty barrister Paul Diamond represented her before an Employment Appeal Tribunal and a decision is pending.
