Cardinal Erasmus Joseph Adjei, Leader of the Worldwide Evangelical Charter, has called on Ghanaians to show gratitude to God for His mercies and exhibit love for one another in the New Year.
He said having love for one’s neighbour was cardinal for successful living as it translated into unity, peace and prosperity.
Cardinal Adjei made the call at the New Year Special Church Service of the Church at Fadama in Accra on Sunday.
He urged Ghanaians to love their country and help to protect lives and national properties.
Cardinal Adjei said it was important that the quality of the environment was improved and devoid of improper garbage disposal, illegal mining and lumbering and building in wetlands and in water course.
“We should collectively support the campaign to rid our society of such negative practices since recklessness would only invite calamities on us,’’ he said.
Cardinal Adjei said the Church established some 40 years ago, had opened 12 branches and that plans were very far advanced to open branches in all the regional capitals.
He said the Church had established a free Day Nursery and that very soon it would establish a basic school that would be free and also put up a hospital to cater for the health needs of the less- privileged in the society.
Cardinal Adjei expressed the hope that Ghana will rise again as the Lord continues to bless us with good leadership and patriotic citizens.
