Religion of Tuesday, 23 October 2012
The Most Reverend Dr. Daniel Yinkah Sarfo, Anglican Archbishop-elect for the Internal Province of Ghana, has performed the ceremony to consecrate a newly built chapel at Sewua in Bosomtwe District, with an admonition to Christians to continue to pray for peaceful polls on December 7.
The nation, he said, was at the crossroads and that there was the need for Christians “to be on their feet”, making intercessory prayers to God for his abundant mercies of peace, security and stability.
Dr. Henry Kwabena Opoku, a medical practitioner and a citizen of Sewua, single-handedly funded the construction of the Saint Anne’s Chapel.
The Anglican Archbishop gave him high marks for his extraordinary gesture of philanthropy and asked other members of the church to emulate.
He encouraged the congregation to adopt the habit of sharing, true fellowship, togetherness, and genuine faith in God.
They should also lead lives of purity so as to become good examples to the rest of society and win over more converts.
Archbishop Dr. Yinka-Sarfo reminded them to use the chapel purely as place of prayer and other religious activities.
He expressed the gratefulness of the Church to Nana Kwaku Amankwa Sarkodie, Chief of Sewua for releasing a parcel of land for future development by the church.
Dr. Opoku thanked God for giving him the strength and courage to undertake the project.
