The 2014 Home and Abroad Women’s meeting of St. Paul’s (Ang) Church, Nkwerre has ended with a thanksgiving service in St. Paul’s (Ang) Church, Nkwerre local government area of Imo State with a charge on the women to raise a godly generation.
The Vicar of Nkwerre Parish, Ven. Uchenna Tochukwu Ahams, JP gave the charge while preaching at the thanksgiving service.
Preaching on the theme:- “Raising godly Heritage” text from (Psalm 127:3) he cautioned women who indulge in adultery and prostitution to desist forthwith or face the wrath of God.
Archdeacon Ahams, who is also the Archdeacon of Nkwerre Archdeaconry decried what he called the lackadaisical attitude among parents and their lukewarmness in their children’s up-bringing which he said has resulted to the moral decadence among youths.
He frowned at the rate of indecency in the society and blamed it on lack of training by some mothers who follow politicians in search of greener pastures. He, however, described child’s training as a collective responsibility.
The archdeacon then admonished parents to inculcate good morals into their children.
Earlier, he extolled the efforts of the women of St. Paul’s both in support of church projects and for providing succour to the less- privileged and the down- trodden.
The union is led by his wife, Mrs Chika Ahams, JP, and the president, St. Paul’s Women Home and Abroad General Meeting, Lady Patience Nwaneri, Ph.D together with the executives. Ven Ahams urged them to sustain the tempo.
Speaking at the occasion, the President Home and Abroad Women Meeting at St. Paul’s Nkwerre, Lady Patience Ngozi Nwaneri, described godly heritage as all those godly virtues and legacies handed over from parents to children.
According to her, it focuses on the legacy bequeathed to children in their individual families, churches, community and the society in general, adding that everybody knows how destructive and ungodly heritage impacts on someone’s life and invariably the society.
Dr. Nwaneri commended Archdeacon Ahams for his prayers and love towards the women.
Highpoints of the meeting were the talks and seminars by Mrs. Ulonma Onyekuru, Dr. Onuoha and Dr. Mrs Anyaehie.
