Women in Ghana and the world as a whole have been cautioned to take Christ to win over the storm in this contemporary world.
According to the President of Christian Mothers Association in the Catholic Archdiocese of Kumasi, Mrs. Hannah Essuman, only Christ can win over the storm in this contemporary world.
Speaking at 8th triennial Archdiocesan conference and annual fund raising ceremony in aid of Christian Mothers Association Vocational school at Akropong in the Ashanti region said Christian mothers can only hold their anchor in difficult times with prayers and making Christ their focus of their daily lives.
Professor Ibok Oduro, Former Provokes of College of Science at Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology giving the key address on behalf of Professor Mrs. Rita Akosua Dickson, Vice Chancellor, Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology on the theme for the occasion, “As a Christian Mother, will your anchor hold in this contemporary world”? entreated Christian mothers to live to pleases Christ but not for their personal interest.
“I want to speak on the title Christian mothers, when you have a name, the name has two things, is an identity and it carries character. If you have just said mothers, anybody can carry mothers but for you to specifically said Christian Mothers, it means that name identity formed in Christ and once it’s in Christ it means it carries Christ character so Christian mothers an identity , an character that carries responsibility. I cannot carry that name and act anyhow.”
“It becomes an honor and responsibility for me to live a life that speaks Christ and portray Christ and demonstrate Christ and Promote Christ that is the name you are carrying is not an ordinary name, is a super natural name, it carries a super natural power and that power translate into lives of people that when they see you, they see Christ, you speak Christ, you proclaim Christ, you dance Christ, everything about you become a lifestyle.”
“And God want us to be reminded that we are carrying a name that should portray him in whatever we do. Weather we sell ground nut, weather we play drums, weather we dance, whatsoever in the market place Christ must be at the center of it that is the name you are carrying.”
“It means that when they mentioned Christian Mothers it carries the power of nurturing in love to produce the next generation, Godly generation that will reflect Christ and Christ alone so therefore you will not be talking about men marring men, women marring women”
According to her, Jesus Christ spent a lot of time with women and being a Christian Mother you have the power to walk straight into the holy of the holies to intercede for the generation.
The chairman for the ceremony, Sir Knight and Mrs Fosuaba Banahene called on mothers to train children on natural resource benefits to human and country as a whole.
According to him, children knowing natural benefit won’t go into illegal mining, galamsay and cutting down trees to destroy our water bodies and polluting the air we breathe.
