Apostle Dr. Stephen Kwame Amoani
Apostle Dr. Stephen Kwame Amoani, Chairman, of the Christ Apostolic Church International (CACI), has said that the power and purpose of God are vital in achieving resolutions set out by Christians and the nation as whole for this year.
“Without the power and purpose of God, we as individuals and the nation cannot achieve the resolutions spelt out for the New Year,” he said.
“It is good for everyone to make a resolution for the coming year, but without the support of the Almighty God, hard work and determination, it will be impossible to achieve those resolutions,” he stated in a speech read for him at an end-of-year get-together for 300 aged and widows in the Accra South Territory of the church.
The aged and widows were drawn from Teshie, Nungua, Maamobi, Kotobabi, Kokomlemle, Adabraka, Osu, Nima, Pig Farm, Alajo and Accra New Town.
The church feted the aged and widows with soft drinks and food, amidst good old gospel tunes. Each person was also given gifts.
While Christians were making their resolutions, they should be mindful of doing away with vices that were confronting the society and the country as a whole, he said, and admonished politicians to “do away with insults which are creeping into politics and give reverence to authority.”
Touching on the aged, Apostle Dr Amoani lauded the roles they had played in ensuring the growth of the church and nation as a whole, noting that they had supported the church with their resources and strength over the years, hence the need to recognize their efforts.
According to him, the occasion was to afford the church congregation as whole, the opportunity to interact with them to know some of their problems and in turn seek of them advice and suggestions for the development of the church.
He said it was the duty of the church to express love towards the aged and widows in order to fulfill the will of God.
The Reverend Samuel Mensah, Pastor in charge of the Accra-New Town branch, spoke of plans to extend a hand to the aged and widows outside the church in the future.
