Former president John Mahama has asked people in leadership position to learn to accept criticism in good faith.
He has also asked critics to package the messages in a decorous manner with the national interest at heart.
Former president said leadership is not an easy task and urged Ghanaians to respect all leaders and pray for them to succeed.
Former president Mahama said this at climax of the 50th Anniversary Celebration of the EP Church, Trinity Parish, Madina.
Established in 1967 the EP Church, Trinity Parish, Madina has grown to become one of the biggest churches in Madina impacting the spiritual and physical lives of many.
Speaking as the special guest of honor to climax the 50th anniversary of the parish, former president Mahama called on Christians to emulate the lives of biblical David and Joseph who were humble. He said Ghana has the potential to be greater and urged all to believe in themselves, work harder and desist from denigrating people in authority.
Welcoming the gathering the District Pastor of the EP Church, Trinity parish, Madina, Rev. Godwill Kwaku Osiakwa, asked the church to reflect on the successes and challenges in the past 50years and strategize for the future. He said expansion of the church’s schools and branches will remain a priority.
In a sermon the immediate past moderator of the General Assembly of the EP church, Ghana Rev. Francis Amenu said judgement is real and reminded the wicked of the inevitability of punishment on the day of reckoning-referencing the letter of Paul to the Thessalonians, Rev. Amenu urged all to think of life after death and desist from hypocrisy, thievery, indiscipline and other acts that are not in line with the tenets of Christianity.
