|Burial service(Late Mills)|| |
The Most Reverend Professor K. Asante,Presiding Bishop of Methodist Church,Ghana has asked Ghanaians to avoid negative languages in politics and ensure that they sustained the bond of unity that the death of the late President brought among them.
“We must unite and draw together for peace, especially this election year; we need to unite to ensure that we conduct free, fair and peaceful elections".
Most Rev. Asante said: “We must try to do away with that, forge ahead to accomplish his Better Ghana Agenda to mortalise the great leader.
Most Rev. Asante made the observation when he delivered the sermon at the burial service of the late President, John Evans Atta Mills at the Independence Square in Accra, on the theme: “The Futility in Life without God”.
He said life on earth was transitory; it was a journey from the known to the unknown and the late President Mills understood life in that context.
Most Rev. Asante said: “Even though he was a great man, an academician, a leader of a great nation and an accomplished individual, the late President accepted Jesus Christ as his personal saviour.
“The late President in his modesty served this nation with humility and fear of God knowing that life with God is futile, empty and hopeless”.
The Presiding Bishop admonished the public not to depend on their own accomplishment but to accept God as their personal saviour.
He said those who truly committed themselves to the service of God would rest peacefully in the bosom of their maker after death.
