The Chief Justice of the Republic of Ghana, Her Ladyship Sophia A. B. Akuffo, has called on Christians to seek peaceful dispute settlement in the event of conflict resolution.
According to her the choice of opting for peaceful dispute settlement to resolve dispute among families, friends, and business partners, among others is a hallmark of a good Christian.
The Chief Justice made this call when she joined the congregants of the Victory Congregation Church (VPC) of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana (PCG) at Adentan Frafraha in Accra to mark their 25th anniversary celebration.
The theme for the 25th anniversary celebration is “Celebrating God’s Grace and Faithful Stewardship”.
Addressing the congregants, Her Ladyship Sophia Akuffo urged them to let Presbyterian values of honesty, hardwork, faithfulness, integrity and humility reflect in their daily life outside the church.
According to her celebrating God’s Grace and Faithful Stewardship shouldn’t end in the church auditorium. And thus tasked all Christians especially members of VPC to let their deeds portray the values of a true Christian.
Her Ladyship Sophia Akuffo said that there is so much for members of VPC to thank God for as they celebrate God’s Grace and Faithful Stewardship over the past 25 years.
“From what I have heard and seen today about Victory, I can conclude with all confidence that the power of God is at work in this church and community.
I have also taken note of the different in-house and outreach programmes this congregation has rolled out over the years. Your flagship Victory Business Summit and Fair is something other churches should emulate”. She stressed.
The Chief Justice opined that the story of Victory is a case study in church growth. In just 25 years, Victory has grown in leaps and bounds to become one of the leading congregations of not just the Presbyterian Church of Ghana, but indeed of all denominations in Ghana.
She commended the leadership both past and present and members for coming that far and urged them to press on and keep the good work.
“Remember that the harvest is still plentiful and there is a lot of work waiting for you to do. Under no circumstances should you rest on your oars. Make it your aim to break new frontiers for the lord”. Her Ladyship Sophia Akuffo cautioned.
