The Speaker of Parliament, Mr Edward Doe Adjaho, has advised professionals, especially the clergy, to go about their core businesses without interfering with other people’s work.
He said some members of the clergy, instead of concentrating on their calling as ministers of the Gospel, had virtually become politicians, trying to speak to issues they were not abreast of.
The Speaker commended the leadership and pastors of Global Evangelical Church for remaining committed to their calling.
The Moderator of the Global Evangelical Church, the Right Rev. Dr Setorwu Ofori, delivered a sermon on the theme: “Radiating God’s Kingdom on Earth” and said God called everyone into ministry and as children of God “we must live Christ-like lifestyles wherever we find ourselves.”
The moderator appealed to all to use their gifts and professions to the glory of God, saying, “Wherever you are serving, radiate God’s glory.”
He spoke against the practice where some Christians indulged in co-habitation, drinking and other immoral lifestyles which did not glorify God.
On the upcoming general election, Rt Rev. Dr Ofori encouraged all to go out in their numbers to cast their votes “only for candidates who promise you hard work and not those who promise to give you food or even to feed you.”
He advised the public not to engage in any form of vandalism, but to go about their civic responsibility in an orderly manner, “since the God that we serve is the God of order.”
Rt Rev. Dr Ofori appealed to those who desperately used various means to go abroad in search of non-existing greener pastures to stay back and use their God-given talents here.
The outgoing National Coordinator for the Church Choirs’ Union, Rev. M.S.K. Lanyo, in his report, expressed his gratitude to God for his sustenance and the church for the opportunity given him to serve.
He urged the choirs to be humble and strive for holiness, remain united and work hard to attain “the eternal crown that awaits the children of God.”
