PRESBYTERIANS PROPAGATE GHANAIAN HERITAGE WITH THE GOSPEL.
It was all joy and excitement among children of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana, Grace Congregation in Akropong-Akuapem as they flamboyantly celebrated the Heritage Sunday.
Members of the Grace Congregation wore traditional outfits representing various tribes and cultures across the country, complementing it with various Ghanaian traditional dances and foods for the occasion.
The event was aimed at preserving the Ghanaian heritage and culture among Christians with a stanch of reaching the young generation with the Gospel to make sense without compromising on the Ghanaian culture and heritage.
Each year, Presbyterians across the country Ghana acknowledge and celebrate the Heritage Sunday, a day to reflect on and celebrate the vast and lengthy history of the Christian Faith and culture.
The occasion was graced by luminaries such as the Minister-in-Charge Rev. Nathaniel Enstie, the Associate Minister Rev. Eric Acheampong, presbyter Dr. Dzifa Kpesenu among others.
Mrs. Ruth Tetteh Amoah, the preacher of the occasion, admonished that the occasion was to help Christians and the Presbyterian Church of Ghana to reflect on the common past and draw lessons for the future.
She called for some introspection to be done so Presbyterians and Ghanaians would realize that the practice of throwing away our values and embracing what is outside would hurt the country in the near future. Mrs. Ruth Tetteh Amoah advised the congregation to patronize dishes prepared with homegrown foodstuffs to protect their health.
She then called on the congregation and Christians in general to live according to the Word of God and also in the steps of Jesus Christ, saying that would have a positive impact on protecting our Ghanaian heritage. She also reminded Christians that Jesus Christ suffered to atone for their sins and, therefore it was important for them to also lay down their lives for others.
