Accra, Aug. 29, GNA – Reverend Father Ransford
Emmanuel Titus Glover, Out-going Parish Priest of St Ambrose Anglican Church,
Dome, Accra, has called on Christians not to make it a point to create problems

work of God, “he said in a homily on Sunday.
Rev Fr Glover was preaching on the theme: “The
unusual gratitude,” during a thanksgiving service to end his three years, eight
months’ duty tour at the Parish. He is on transfer to St James at Teshie North
He told the congregation to stay away from

people mad and treat them as bad persons.
“Every test in life makes us bitter or better.
The joy is to make ourselves victims or victors,” he said.
He said Jesus Christ was mindful about
gratitude, when he healed 10 lepers and only one gave to say thank you to him.
Rev Fr Glover asked Christians to be grateful
to God through thanksgiving for the numerous travelling mercies, healing, good
health peace and understanding at home and the courage to stand up to
He thanked the congregation for their support
during his line of duty especially their support in reactivating the monthly
offering, which led to the refurbishment of the church building.
