Apostle Dr. Peter Wilson, President of Living Faith Theological Seminary a (pastorial institution), has urged Ghanaian pastors with leading the fight against inadequate sanitation in the country.
According to the cleric, cleanliness is next to Godliness, thus he is urging pastors around the country to speak for and lead the fight against inadequate sanitation in the communities where they worship.
When the Living Faith Theological Seminary and the Weija Gbawe Municipal Assembly organised a clean-up effort as part of their 25th anniversary celebrations last weekend, Apostle Dr. Peter Wilson told the media about it.
As the church, the man of God said, we are the light of the world.” We have been charged with setting a good example for our society. We saw that the neighbourhood was filthy. That is why, as the pastor, I led my congregation in this activity. I am a firm believer that as men of God, we should frequently organise clean-up efforts near our churches.
We argue that we have developed and that society is changing. But, sadly, dirt has enveloped us. Despite our claims to have transformed as a people, we are constantly unwell. We must put an end to indiscriminate rubbish dumping and practise healthy living. If we profess to be responsible citizens, we cannot continue to live in filth. We must return to ensure that the environment is protected through collective labour.”
On the other hand, some members of the Living Faith Theological Seminary who took part in the exercise recommended the general public to maintain their environs clean and neat in order to prevent the outbreak of diseases in their communities.
