THE Administrative  Secretary and  Director  of Communication and Ecumenism in the Anglican Diocese of Nnewi, Godwin Agba, has advised parents and guardians  to involve their children in activities as we approach deeper to the yuletide   celebration.

Speaking from his office at the Bishop’s Court in Nnewi, Ven Dr. Agba described Christmas as a testimony for the birth of  Christ ,the comforter and  intercessor for the goodness of mankind .

The Archdeacon said that Christmas was supposed to be time for reflection of our journey from January to December and make amends  where we erred, as well as thank God and visit the less privileged.

He said that the birth of Jesus Christ symbolised atonement of our sins and forgiveness.

He enjoined Christians to  imbibe the spirit of forgiveness and leave enviable legacies, pointing out                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         thatabsorbing rancor and bitterness will attract God’s anger.

He revealed that the word Christian emanated in Antioch when the apostles of Jesus Christ were preaching the  gospel  about the life of Jesus Christ and were  called  followers of Jesus the Christ- Christians (Christ followers).

He finally  urged motorists to drive  with care this period, pointing out that the celebration and  others in Christendom are made  for the living and not the dead or fatally injured.
