Accra, 14 December, 2019 / 9:16 am (ACI Africa).
During the December 11 maiden forum of discussion bringing together religious and secular leaders in Ghana termed “Conversations in the Cathedral,” the Metropolitan Archbishop of Accra, John Bonaventure Kwofie used the opportunity of the Advent Season to invite Christians in the West African nation to be mindful of the needy in society.
“Let’s celebrate this Christmas by thinking of what can be done to ease the situation of the abandoned, the marginalized, the forgotten, the sick, the aged, the needy,” Archbishop Kwofie said at the forum held at Holy Spirit Cathedral in Ghana’s capital, Accra and streamed live on various online forums.
He added, “Let us celebrate Christmas taking a positive stand in support of the human person, in order to bring to an end whatever diminishes the dignity of the human person.”
“As we look forward to Christmas, I encourage all to celebrate in moderation, let us remember to share our joy with the poor and less privileged,” he said.
“God gave Jesus to us as a gift and we must also offer ourselves as gifts to other, in terms of doing whatever we can to bring peace, comfort and solace to others,” Archbishop Kwofie said.
