Some Christians displaying proper sanitation practices

The Dansoman branch Over­seer of the World Mission Society Church of God (General Pastor, Kim Joo-Che­ol) Mr Kunwoo Song, has urged Christians to lead proper sanita­tion practices in their commu­nities, as ‘cleanliness is next to godliness.’

He said the Church must encourage its members to clean their surroundings very often, because it is the duty of Chris­tians to protect God’s creation, especially the environment.

Mr Song said this last Sunday when the church undertook a clean-up exercise on the Odor­kor-Kasoa highway in Accra.

It was part of their annual activities in promoting prop­er sanitation practices in the country.

The seven-hour exercise saw hundreds of church members defy the early rains to clear do­mestic waste on the highway.

Mr Song said the church had over the years undertaken such exercises, as a means to spread the teachings on the significance of keeping the environment from filth.

He said it was the responsi­bility of believers of God to pro­tect the environment, stressing that Christians must champion proper sanitation practices in their communities, to even encourage non-believers to do same.

The Member of Parliament (MP) for Weija-Gbawe constit­uency, Madam Tina Gifty Naa Ayele Mensah, who also led some members of the public to participate in the exercise, ex­pressed gratitude to the Church for organising the event.

She said last Sunday’s clean-up exercise was the second time by the World Mission Society Church of God in the constituen­cy, and urged the public to keep their surroundings clean.
