Archbishop advises Christians to take inspiration from lotto stakers

From the "You Can't Make This Stuff Up" Department (Ghana)

The former Archbishop of the Province of West Africa of the Anglican Church, the Most Reverend(rtd) Robert G. A. Okine has advised Christians to take inspiration from the courage , commitment and hope of lotto stakers in their service to the church and the country.

Archbishop (rtd) Okine said he was not a lotto staker and was not encouraging people to stake lotto but rather to learn from the commitment, courage and hope of lotto stakers and apply it in their work for the progress of the church and the country.

He was preaching the sermon at the consecration and dedication of the new chapel of the St. John the Divine Anglican Church at Nuaso, near Krobo-Odumase on Sunday.

The consecration and dedication ceremony was performed by the Anglican Bishop of Koforidua, Rt. Rev. Francis Benjamin Quashie.

Archbishop (rtd) Okine observed that, lotto stakers never give-up despite the huge amount of money they lose and always have the hope of winning in their next attempt and urged christens to demonstrate the same type of courage and commitment in their service to God and the church.
