Anglican Bishop urges youth to be role model
From David Allan Paintsil, Cape Coast
The Anglican Bishop of Cape Coast Diocese, Right Reverend Bishop Daniel Slyvanus Adotei Allotey, has called on the youth of the church to be ambassadors of role model by leading a good life that would attract other people into the church.
Speaking at a Youth Forum, one of the activities marking the 30th Anniversary Celebration of the Cape Coast Anglican Diocese on Saturday, Bishop Allotey said it was incumbent on the youth to lead a good life because those who lead life worthy of emulation are remembered from generation to generation and appealed to the youth in the church to aspire for great things.
The Anglican Bishop, however admonished parents not to shirk their responsibilities of teaching their children the right path by encouraging them to study the bible at home.
A Lecturer at the Department of Education Fund at the University of Cape Coast (UCC), Mrs. Priscilla Commey-Mintah, who was the guest speaker for the occasion asked the youth to speak the truth at all times and urged them to set their eyes on Jesus Christ, who she said is the foundation of life as well as giver of good things of life.
Mrs. Commey-Mintah advised the youth to refrain from lesbianism and gays because they were ungodly and would lead them into destruction. She encouraged them to take their bible studies very seriously by avoiding spending large portion of their time on facebook and on the internet.
According to her, the world system could fail them but Jesus Christ would never disappoint them, if only they abide by his word.
For his part, Rev. Cannon Kofi deGraft-Johnson urged the youth to be content with whatever they have because discontentment could land them into trouble. He again charged them to lead a disciplined life because they would enjoy the good fruits of discipline in their lives.
He disclosed that The Christ Church Anglican Cathedral was built with funds approved by the British Parliament in 1859 and was dedicated in 1865 as the first Anglican Church in Ghana.
