ChurchesMr Benjamin Kpodo, the Member of Parliament for Ho Central, has asked churches to move beyond the“pulpit preaching” and visit election hotspots in the country with peace messages.

He asked them to “embrace” those communities and organise interactive sessions to discuss the need for tolerance and peaceful co-existence ahead of the November Polls.

Mr Kpodo was addressing the Seventh Synod of the Ho-East Presbytery of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church, at Tsito.

He asked the Church to include regular community visits to preaching on the pulpit and on the airwaves to ensure that peace prevailed.

Mr Kpodo asked them to also focus on “Ecclesiastical Teachings” and organise peace concerts.

He described the Church as a major stakeholder in nation-building and encouraged it to be proactive and innovative in engaging the populace for violence-free elections in November.

Mr Kpodo also challenged the Church to think outside the box and venture into unfamiliar territories to win souls for Christ.
