The Bishop of the Northern
Accra Diocese of the Methodist Church Ghana, Right Reverend Professor Joseph
M.Y Edusa-Eyison has urged the youth to use technology positively for their
growth and development.
He said the emerging trend
of technology should not contradict their belief as Christians, but instead it
should be used to spread God’s word.
Rev. Prof Edusa-Eyison
was speaking at the official opening of the Northern Accra Diocese’s first
annual Synod held yesterday.
The colourful event was
themed; “Intensifying Our Teaching Ministry for Disciple Making: Northern Accra
Diocese in Focus.”
The Bishop noted that social
media had its advantages and stressed the need for the youth to use it to the
glory of God.
“In the world we live
in today, we must think wisely about how we use technology as a tool to train
believers and engage with the culture,” he emphasised.
Bishop advised the head of churches to preach in their various mother tongues in
order for members to internalise sermons.
Touching on the theme, Prof.
Edusa-Eyison, pledged the diocese’s commitment to ensuring that the target of
the Methodist Church was achieved and urged members to love one another as that
was the key foundation to be a Christian.
