We continued our visitation to the ecumenical bodies and church leaders yesterday. One of the issues that has been coming up and came up yesterday is the politicisation of issues of national interest in Ghana, including the National Cathedral. Our country is polarised on political lines so much that, because of political affiliation, it is possible to fight an issue that might help the country. Christians, it was stressed,
must endeavour not to be caught up in this unfortunate menace. Although, the announcement by the president to build the National Cathedral was received with mixed feelings, we believe that we can make it work out for our good as a nation. The gracious Lord causes all things to work together for the good of those who love Him. The president has asked the Christian community several times to own the National Cathedral.
Therefore, Christians can work the cathedral to be a symbol of the Christian faith in Ghana. It will unite us as Christians and in addition bring together other Ghanaians, irrespective of people’s political affiliation. As Christians, we shouldn’t be engaging in over politicisation of national issues. The National Cathedral will serve as a national interdenominational facility for prayer and worship, a centre of learning, a national point of convergence, and a gateway to African Christianity.
I want to appeal to each of you to come together for us to build this national monument to the glory of God.
