Brotherhood of the Cross and Star (BCS) a religious body ends Mansion of Blessedness 1st West African Convention here under the theme, “Upholding the Legacies of the Holy Mother Esu Elizabeth OlumbaObu at a local hotel in Monrovia.BCS is a religious organization founded in 1956 by a Nigerian, OlumbaOlumbaObu, in Calabar, Cross River State, Nigeria.
It is also a Christian organization that follows the teachings of Jesus Christ and embraces a life of Christian discipleship as fellow cross-bearers.
The denomination believes that the surest path to the kingdom of God lies in searching out the old paths of Christian forebears and following in their footsteps.
Speaking at the occasion which brought together members of the Christian community in and around Liberia, Her Eminence Victor Imowo, encourages the congregation to maintain the sanctity and beauty of BCS temples and altars under the Brotherhood of the Cross and Star World Headquarters and in all BCS formations and many more.
According to her, it is for this reason that the Holy Father in his exhortation declared that, ‘the Blessed Mothers of New Kingdom must, by all means, be transformed from their vile nature to one that meets the sacred tradition of the New.
“ I exhort all Blessed Mothers to strive to keep to these divine injunctions, knowing fully well that we are a source of blessing to our families, villages, communities and nations”, she says.
Her Eminence Imowo urges the participants after the five days convention, to demonstrate the lifestyle of the holy mother to all women in the BCS fold and the world at large in speech, dressing and human relations.
“Adorn yourselves with modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety not with braided hair gold, or pearls or costly array, but become women professing Godliness.”
The national administrator for the BCS in Liberia, Christ Ambassador Moses Perekeme, lauds the women for hosting the Mansion of Blessedness 1st West African Convention in Liberia, noting that it came at a very auspicious time when the father’s initial consecration message to the blessing Mother would be reechoed.
Christ Amb. Perekeme, who served as a peacekeeper for three years with the Economic Community Monitoring Group or ECOMOG in Liberia, notes that it shall become a major milestone in efforts at consolidating the creative base for all Blessed Mothers in the New Kingdom. Editing by Jonathan Browne
