The Church Choir of the Hope Congregation of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana, Sakumono-Estates on Sunday, December 15, 2018 organised a festival of nine lessons and carols to usher in the Christmas.
The carols were interspersed with scripture readings. Rev. Mrs. Sylvia Akuffo Anning Bonsu, a Minister at the congregation in her exhortation urged the people to make sure that the significance of Christmas was not lost on anybody. “The festival of nine lessons and carols is a reminder that the purpose for which Jesus came into this world is for salvation and judgment. Jesus will come again as a king to judge all people both those who have accepted him and those who have not” she said.
She said the powerful message of peace sent to the world by Christ’s birth should guide every action and step they took. “Sin brought darkness into our lives. Christ the light of this world has come to take away every darkness in our lives as long as we accept Him” she added. The season he said should bring people a new sense of renewal towards peace and commitment towards nation building. “Allow Christ to dine with you and when he comes back, you will be with him in eternal glory.” Rev. Bonsu added.
