LCC Urged To Lead In Breaking Barriers To Unity, Peace

By Wellington G. Patrick, LINA Nimba County Correspondent

SANNIQUELLIE, March 27 (LINA) - Liberian Council of Churches HIV/AIDS Program Coordinator, Ms. Christine Dolo, has called on Christian leaders to lead efforts to break the barriers hindering unity and peace among Liberian churches.

Ms. Dolo observed that faith-based institutions that should be the strength of national peace and unity have created what she described as divided opinions over similar faith.

She encouraged spiritual leaders to unite God’s people, join common ideas, including spiritual, social and economic knowledge, to “summon the world to a profound love and peace in the faith of Jesus Christ.”

She made the call Friday at the First United Methodist Church in Sanniquellie, Nimba County, when she facilitated a two-day HIV/AIDS worship for over 40 spiritual leaders in the county.

The training program, which covers Bong, Bassa and Nimba counties, brought together pastors, prophets, youths and leaders of Churches from nearly 25 churches in Nimba.

Meanwhile, she has urged religious leaders across the country to establish health departments in their respective edifices to conduct awareness on the preventive measures of Ebola and Sexually Transmitted Diseases and other infections.

She noted that spiritual leaders should be involved in life-saving awareness because church members have unbending confidence in their spiritual leaders more than ordinary social workers.
