Christians must lead crusade on proper sanitation practices in communities’
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.
