The Seventh-Day Adventist Church at Aboabo in the Asokore mampong municipality of the Ashanti Region has celebrated their 3rd edition of traditional Sabbath day.
The celebration aims at promoting “Unity in diversity “, which is base on the concept where the individual or social differences in physical attributes, skin colour, castes, creed, cultural and religious practices, among others, are not looked upon as a conflict.
The differences are looked upon as varieties that enrich the society and the nation as a whole. It was observed as a celebration of Ghana’s diverse culture.
It’s a day designated for people to come in traditional attire from their home state or specific culture of their choice.
The event was inaugurated with prayer, thanksgiving to the almighty God (for his protection and guidance throughout the second quarter of 2021) and the study of the lesson of the Sabbath School lead by the Sabbath School Department. This was followed by Spectacular music performance by the “Evangelicals” and the entire church could not sit but dance to glorify God.
The celebrations were followed by Sabbath School programmes where the Children’s Department had a blast showing their talents on the stage which included recitals of memory tests, presentations and more. The kids were completely in their high traditional competitive spirit.
Their inner creativity and potentialities were driven through these traditional programmes.
Elder Gabriel Boateng Gyimah Guest speaker addressed the congregation and the Church Secretary gave a brief announcement blending “Asante Twi” “Brong”Fante”Frafra”Ewe languages which was so much interesting.
The programme was fast followed by the “Divine Service” and the sermon of the day was delivered by Elder Gabriel Boateng Gyimah charged politicians to put stop to the politics of tribalism because it’s dividing the unity we have as a nation and is not good for us as a people of this country.
In all, it was a great success and it definitely strengthened the bonds among the Church Members and created respect for ethnic and racial diversity in Ghana.
Everyone at the Aboabo S.D.A Church came dressed in their best ethnic attires.
The Church Pastor, Elders, Members, Children and Visitors participated with great ecstasy. Everyone displayed their various cultures by dressing their best which was a colourful treat to the eyes in itself. Lots of pictures were clicked by everyone to create memories of this beautiful day. The atmosphere everywhere was of joy and celebration.
After the Service, everyone gorged on the delicacies arranged and took back memories for a lifetime, as we wait for the second coming of the Lord
