Fast & Prayer Service Highlights Confession, Repentance

No Comments

first_imgClergymen who participated in the 2015 National Fast & Prayer day service have stressed the need for Liberians to confess and repent sinful acts that do not reflect the true image of God and Christianity.Although there are other religious groups and beliefs in the country, the Christian congregation that converged at the historic Providence Baptist Church, the nation’s oldest church, believes that there are moral virtues that all must go by in making a country Godly.The clergymen, in their prayers for the nation, stressed that corruption, blood shedding, (for ritualistic purposes), discrimination, injustice and rape are some ills that both Christian teachings and those of other religious groups frown upon.One of the clergymen, Presbyterian Moderator, Rev. Sando Townsend,  compared Liberia to Nineveh in the days of Prophet Jonah, noting that when Jonah confronted the king after delaying to reach the city, the king and everyone in the country went into fast and prayer, confessing their sins and repenting and thereby averted God’s threatened punishment upon them.Others in their prayers underscored that God is not just compassionate, but is a God of justice, and that there is no way blessings will flow amid grave sins widespread in the nation.The Christians earnestly prayed for God’s intervention in making Liberia free of grave societal sins, and called on Liberians to adopt moral standards that will represent God in the land.In his Fast & Prayer sermon, Rev. Dr. Matthew Armah Jaiah of the S. Trowen Nagbe United Methodist Church stressed that the fast and prayer themes of self-respect, high esteem, devotion, and other virtues constitute glory.He, however, noted that today’s church in Liberia is troubled because members are not living in accordance with what God desires and are not preaching the word of God.He stressed that all sorts of evil deeds now fill the church and such cannot allow God’s glory to fill the temple as it did as recorded in Exodus 14: 34.Preaching on the theme, “After glory what next?” Rev. Jaiah urged Liberian Christians to live above reproach and manifest those values that are acceptable to God and not to take the name of the Lord in vain.In his statement to members of the Liberia Council of Churches and the Christian community, LCC president, the Most Rev. Dr. Jonathan B.B. Hart, recalled the intervention of God in the Ebola scourge that faced Liberia last year and said it is necessary to “give glory the God for the great things He has done.”Archbishop Hart thanked the Liberian churches for their role in devoting time to pray for the country to be freed of Ebola, warning that Ebola was still around and people should observe all health protocols.Rev. Dr. Nuwoe-James Kiamu of the Liberia Association of Theological Institutions recounted that when Great Britain threatened Liberia in 1882, all government officials along with the President became speechless and frightened, and called for fast and prayer to ask God to deliver the country.“Liberia could not withstand the British, but God’s intervention delivered the country and its sovereignty was maintained.  It is based on this that the Legislature passed the bill setting aside a day in April to be observed as Fast & Prayer day,” he said.The Fast & Prayer service was attended by President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Foreign Minister Augustine K. Ngafuan, outgoing Education Minister Etmonia David-Tarpeh and a few officials from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.No Legislator attended the Fast & Prayer, something that led the first vice president of the Liberia Council of Churches, Rev. Dr. Kortu Brown to state that the behavior of the country’s Legislators is contrary to the laws they pass.He also noted that the view some Christians have to make Liberia a Christian nation did not begin with the Liberia Council of Churches, but a practice of democracy.Fast & Prayer was declared in 1883 by an act of the Legislature following a threat by Great Britain to undermine Liberia’s sovereignty during the administration of Alfred F. Russell.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

‘Dollar Rally Campaign’ Launched to Support Ja’neh

No Comments

first_imgThe fate of embattled Associate Justice Ja’neh hangs.Hundreds of people in Nimba County, particularly those residing in electoral district #7, have begun donating whatever amount of money they could spare to support the defense team representing the legal interest of embattled Associate Justice Kabineh M. Ja’neh, for his ongoing impeachment trial.Of the total number of residents in the district, 257 people who recently contributed to the “Dollar Rally Campaign” affixed their signatures to a petition that called on the 54th Legislature, mainly the Senate, to put an end to the impeachment proceedings against the Associate Justice on grounds that the impeachment procedure is not legal but political.Four of the signatories to the petition in persons of Joseph Menlor, Robin Kpaoayor, Obay Robin and the former City Mayor of Bahn, Madam Angie Dopoe, said the money they have raised and continue to raise will be used to help contribute to the payment of legal services the lawyers have rendered the embattled Associate Justice.Although they did not state how much they have already raised neither did they say what their targeted amount is, Ja’neh’s supporters said they will not relent to do all they can in their capacities to stand by him in these days of his trials.“We will sacrifice our little amounts we have to show our love for Ja’neh, who is one of us. He is from Nimba County, and we believe that supporting a son of the county for the right reason is a just cause; we will not fail to accomplish,” Madam Angie Dopoe said.The constituents called on the county’s two Senators, Thomas Grupee and Prince Yormie Johnson, not to vote against Justice Ja’neh, since it is clearly understood, as said by Grand Cape Mount County Senator Varney Sherman, that Ja’neh’s impeachment trial is a political one, rather than a legal trial.With Article 17 of the 1986 Revised Constitution of Liberia considered, the residents, headed by Madam Dopoe, said they are frustrated over the ongoing political impeachment trial of one of their own kinsmen (Justice Ja’neh).Article 17 of the 1986 Revised Constitution of Liberia states that “All persons, at all times, in orderly and peaceable manner, shall have the right to assemble and consult upon common good to instruct their representatives, to petition government or other functionaries for the redress of grievances and associate in political parties, trade unions and other organizations.”“We strongly believe that Associate Justice Ja’neh has committed no impeachable offenses against the people of Liberia. What we know of him is that he has always stood, and continues to stand for the good of our nation that has been troubled and tried over the years, based on individual political motives,” the residents said.The Nimba District #7 residents added in their petition that Justice Ja’neh is one who is always concentrated on rendering his just and candid opinions in cases before the Supreme Court and, as such, all he has done are “free from prosecution.”“We, at this time, present this instrument petitioning our Senate through you our District Lawmaker, Representative Roger Y. Domah, to rally the signatures of our Senators Grupee and Johnson not to vote in favor of the current impeachment proceeding against Associate Justice  Ja’neh as planned by his detractors,” the petitioners said.The impeachment proceeding against Associate Justice Ja’neh was put on the floor at the House of Representatives by two Montserrado County lawmakers on August 28, 2018, for alleged “misconduct and gross breach of duty” in keeping with the constitutional power assigned to the Supreme Court.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Photo/RAYMOND MAKHAYANAIROBI, Kenya, Oct 3 – Ahead of the historic friendly pitting Kenyan champions Gor Mahia and English Premier League side Everton FC, K’Ogalo coach Dylan Kerr has warned that no player is guaranteed a slot as he prepares to choose 18 players who will make the trip to Goodison Park.Kerr made the remarks after seeing his side frustrated to a 2-2 draw by visiting Mathare United, throwing away a two-goal lead on their coronation day last Sunday at the Moi Stadium Kisumu. The Briton tactician fielded a strong team comprising of regular players that he said had trusted will pick maximum points but was disappointed after failing to defend a 2-0 lead, something that made him hint some of the players who were selected for the Mathare clash might not make the cut for the United Kingdom trip.Gor Mahia head coach Dylan Kerr celebrates with the 2018 Kenyan Premier League title at the Moi Stadium in Kisumu on September 30, 2018.

We have a squad of 18 to pick not 27 that we had in Tanzania last year, some of them (players) might not play in that game (Everton). If people think they have the right to play not in my life, my job is to pick the best team to win the game,” Kerr assured.“I did pick the best team to win the game against Mathare, we were 2-0 up we should have won the game but we didn’t, we are not professional, professional people close shop when 2-0 up and go home as champions,” Kerr added.Gor Mahia midfielder George ‘Blackberry’ Odhiambo tries to find a way past the Mathare defense during their Kenyan Premier League clash at the Moi Stadium in Kisumu on September 30, 2018.

There is no certainty that it will be concluded.“President [Antonio] Percassi and I were able to speak with [Milan Vice-President] Adriano Galliani, who showed great interest in the lad.“Milan have a moral first option on our player, yes, but I absolutely would not say that the deal is already done.”last_img read more

DONEGAL SINN FEIN MAN TO APPEAR IN COURT OVER IRA HYDE PARK BOMB MURDERS

No Comments

first_imgDonegal Sinn Fein member John Downey to appear again in court on WednesdayA SENIOR Sinn Fein member accused of murdering four British solders in the 1982 IRA bombing at London’s Hyde Park is back in court on Wednesday.John Anthony Downey, 61, of Carrigart, County Donegal, is charged with the murders of Roy John Bright, Dennis Richard Anthony Daly, Simon Andrew Tipper and Geoffrey Vernon Young. The four Household Cavalry members were killed on route to Buckingham Palace.The 61-year-old appeared at the Old Bailey two weeks ago but no bail application was made and he was remanded in custody.He is due back in court on Wednesday where a bail application could be made.Downey, who is originally from Co Cavan but has been living in Co Donegal, will appear at a preliminary hearing before Mr Justice Sweeney at London’s Old Bailey.Mr Downey – who was arrested at Gatwick Airport after stepping off a plane earlier last month – is also charged with intending to cause an explosion likely to endanger life.At his last hearing, he appeared in the court via videolink from Belmarsh prison.The arrest of Downey provoked a strong reaction from Sinn Fein who called for his immediate release.Donegal County Council passed a motion recently calling for his immediate release.In the North, Sinn Féin Assembly member Gerry Kelly said Sinn Féin member Downey was a “long-time supporter of the Peace Process” and should be released.Gerry Kelly added: “The decision to arrest and charge him in relation to IRA activities in the early 1980s is vindictive, unnecessary and unhelpful.“It will cause anger within the republican community.“Clearly, if John Downey had been arrested and convicted previously he would have been released under the terms of the Good Friday Agreement.“As part of the Weston Park negotiation, the British Government committed to resolving the position of OTRs [‘On the Runs’].“John Downey received a letter from the NIO in 2007 stating that he was not wanted by the PSNI or any British police force.“Despite travelling to England on many occasions, now – six years on – he finds himself before the courts on these historic charges.“This development represents bad faith and a departure from what was previously agreed by both governments.“John Downey needs to be released and allowed to return home to his family.”DONEGAL SINN FEIN MAN TO APPEAR IN COURT OVER IRA HYDE PARK BOMB MURDERS was last modified: June 5th, 2013 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:CarrigartDONEGAL SINN FEIN MAN TO APPEAR IN COURT OVER IRA HYDE PARK BOMB MURDERSGERRY ADAMS TDGERRY KELLY MLAJOHN ANTHONY DOWNEYLondonOld Baileylast_img read more
