Reverend Thomas Henry Quamson Reverend Thomas Henry Quamson

The Reverend Thomas Henry Quamson Senior Pastor, Holy Ghost worship Centre, Assemblies of God Church, Jericho, Ashiaman has advised his congregants to watch what they eat this Christmas to avoid medical complications afterward.

He said the celebration was flooded with parties, drink-ups and various forms of enjoyments, which caused many ‘to just eat and eat without considering the health implications.’

"Most of these drinks are colour, sugar and flavours," he said.

He said this while delivering his Christmas sermon themed; "The Significance of Christmas."

He said many persons report to hospitals sick right after the festivities due to such uncontrolled eating behaviours.

He drew the attention of the Church not to be swayed by reduced sale of products in market places and lorry parks, but take the pace to check the expiration date of such products.

"Some of you when you hear five for GH¢10, three for GH¢2 you quickly rush to buy and use for you Christmas meal not knowing that such products may have expired long ago," he said.

He advised them to watch their expenditure because life did not end with Christmas; " from January 2020 you will eat, pay school fees, go to work and see to other responsibilities so you must save some money for the weeks ahead," he said.

He said it was sad to know that many spent their bonuses, allowance and all they had in the name if Christmas and had to resort to borrowing within the first Month of the coming year.

"Jesus was born not to make us broke," he said.

He said the season was a good time to fellowship with God and the church, family and make peace where there were a broken relationship.

He said this was the time to reflect on the past and gather strength for the coming year.

Coating from Isaiah chapter nine he said celebrate this Christmas in love, peace and righteousness for thus was the reason for the Messiah's birth.
