90th Anniversary of Ga Presbytery Launched
The ninetieth anniversary of the Ga Presbytery was officially lunched simultaneously at eight venues on Sunday, 23rd October, 2011. Past and present Principal Officers of the Presbytery officiated at all the venues.
Preaching the sermon on the theme, ’Love your neighbour’, at the New Achimota congregation, Rev. Dr. G N. Odonkor, the Ga Presbytery Chairperson challenged the Christians to seek grace from God to enable them extend love to their neighbours. He reminded them that whilst a neighbour may be any human being, the challenge is more towards those who live close by, next door neighbours, workmates, subordinates, superiors and all we daily come into contact with. He said to love a neighbour you will accept him the way he is and attempt to add value to his life’ Rev. Odonkor said.
