A reverend minister of the Methodist Church has expressed regret about the participation of some Christians in political violence, and urged them to stay away from political activities that could bring violence and hardship to others.
Rev Ernest Amoah Ntow, Administrator of the Koforidua Diocese of the Methodist Church, and Minister in-charge of the Okorase society of the Adweso Circuit of the Methodist Church, was preaching the sermon at the fourth anniversary of the Men's Fellowship of the Adweso Calvary Methodist Church at Adweso, near Koforidua on Sunday.
He said violence is an anti-Christian behaviour and urged Christians in politics to avoid utterances and tendencies that create tension.
Rev Ntow reminded Ghanaians that politics was about governance and development, and advised that politics should not be used to divide the people and urged politicians and their parties to preach peace.
The Chairman of the Diocesan Men's Fellowship, Mr E. Addo-Okyireh commended the members of the Calvary Methodist Men's Fellowship for their contribution towards the construction of the new chapel for the church.
The Chairman of the Fellowship, Mr Eugene Akyea-Mensah on behalf of the Fellowship, presented 740 Ghana Cedis electronic signboard to the church.
Very Rev. Solomon Sobeng, Superintendent Minister in-charge of the Adweso Circuit of the church who received the presentation on behalf of the church, thanked the members of the fellowship for their presentation and various contributions towards the growth of the church.
