Bishop Marsh frowned on the way in which the country is moving said, even though, he has observed some developments, pointing out the pavement of community roads network which he said is commendable, but the atmosphere is glaring with death, hardship, struggle, hatred, jealousy, evil deeds above all corruption civil altars, confusion as well as false promises.
"In spite of these developments, NCCL call for Christian and churches to be proactive in order to foster the reconciliation between and its people." The NCCL in the wake of these developments has launched a 3day prayer rally to change the atmosphere over the country, the prayer rally which began on Wednesday, April 10, is expected to end this Friday, April 12, 2019.
"It is about time that politics be silent, adding that Liberia is what matter and the people interest is paramount, reconciliation must begin," he stressed.
