THE Administrative Secretary and Director of Communication and Ecumenism in the Anglican Diocese of Nnewi, Godwin Agba, has advised parents and guardians to involve their children in activities as we approach deeper to the yuletide celebration.
Speaking from his office at the Bishop’s Court in Nnewi, Ven Dr. Agba described Christmas as a testimony for the birth of Christ ,the comforter and intercessor for the goodness of mankind .
The Archdeacon said that Christmas was supposed to be time for reflection of our journey from January to December and make amends where we erred, as well as thank God and visit the less privileged.
He said that the birth of Jesus Christ symbolised atonement of our sins and forgiveness.
He enjoined Christians to imbibe the spirit of forgiveness and leave enviable legacies, pointing out thatabsorbing rancor and bitterness will attract God’s anger.
He revealed that the word Christian emanated in Antioch when the apostles of Jesus Christ were preaching the gospel about the life of Jesus Christ and were called followers of Jesus the Christ- Christians (Christ followers).
He finally urged motorists to drive with care this period, pointing out that the celebration and others in Christendom are made for the living and not the dead or fatally injured.
