Accra, Jan 27 (GNA) – The Right Reverend Thomas Forson, Methodist Bishop of Tema, has called on parents to train their children to fear and honour God since that was the greatest legacy they could bequeath to them.

According to him, the solution to the worries and battles of life could only be found in the word of God and « our association with him. »

Rt. Rev. Forson, who was delivering a sermon during the induction of connexional officers of the Methodist Guild at the Saint Paul’s Methodist Cathedral in Tema, said children who honoured God grow to appreciate the fact that loving and honoring God was service and compassion to humanity.

According to him, such people develop the right character, which was needed to steer the affairs of the family, society and nation in which they lived.

He said since leadership determines the rise or fall of every society, it was crucial that people given the power to lead have attributes needed to guide and encourage followers or citizens.

« You may be charismatic but without character, your leadership will be meaningless. You must have the will to focus on the needs of others before you consider yours. In fact, you must be the servant leader that Jesus taught his disciples. »

According to him, « Christian leaders are taught by Jesus to be humble, selfless, see responsibility as service and not power, be creative, forgiving and loving. »

Mr Jonathan Bassaw, Connexional President of the Guild, was inducted with fourteen other officers to steer the affairs of the group for three years.

The Methodist Guild was introduced in Gold Coast as Ghana was then called in 1899 to mobilize Methodist youths and adults for Church activities, train them for leadership and make them effective witnesses in the Church and country to the Gospel of Christ.
