The hypocrisy needs to stop – Methodist Bishop tells colleagues
The Diocesan Bishop of the Effiduase Methodist Church, the Right Reverend Moses Quayson, has urged his colleagues in the gospel ministry to raise the moral threshold of society by living up to their calling.
He said Minister of God should be above reproach, become good role models and set good example for others, adding that anything likely to create image problems for the Christian religion must be avoided.
He was addressing the opening of the 16th annual synod of the diocese at Juaben in the Ejisu-Juaben Municipality.
“Witnessing to Christ today, mobilizing our individual resources for the development of the ministry” is the theme for the three-day meeting.
The Rt Rev Quayson reminded Christians to manifest Christ-like qualities of selflessness, humility, modesty and sacrifice for the general good of society.
He asked the synod to focus on innovative ways of mobilizing resources to support the church’s development and growth.
He said weaker societies of the church in the diocese must be helped to stand on their feet, citing for instance the Nkwankwanua in the Seniagya Circuit, and the Northerners society at Kotei in the Ejisu.
The synod presented an amount of GH¢7,000.00 to assist pay for the surgical operation of a 13-year old hole-in-heart girl, Ellen Serwaa Boahene at the National Cardiothoracic Centre.
