Rev. Sam Korankye Ankrah founder and Apostle General of the Royalhouse Chapel Churches worldwide and a leading father figure of the Charismatic movement, has added his voice to the raging debate over President Akufo-Addo’s proposed National Cathedral.
In a sermon delivered to church members, snippets of which are available online, Rev. Ankrah asked the president to be resolute in his ambition to build a National Cathedral and not to be swayed by the naysayers and detractors.
Quoting extensively from scripture, he drew parallels between the times of Zerubabel, who sought to rebuild for the Lord, what would have been the equivalent of the proposed National cathedral.
He further described and likened events at that time, the opposition Zerubabel faced, the criticisms and the arduous task the president had set for himself and the Nation.
He encouraged the president to keep his focus on such great initiative, while promising the support of the Christian Community in general.
It is almost obvious that the president, a man of his word, is bent on building a National Cathedral. As leading father figures and Christian leaders who wield great command over large numbers continue to pledge their support for the President’s dream, will a National Cathedral soon adorn the city’s skyline?
