‘God loves football’ as last weekend saw Living Stream International Church at Trade fair in Accra, had members who are all fans of London based club, Chelsea, attend Sunday service in their jerseys. It was so noticeable that a section of offering was dedicated to the fans for their team’s winning of the 2016/17 Premier League.
Though the pastor of the church had to break protocol by wearing his own Arsenal jersey – adding salt to injury after his team had ended Chelsea’s hopes of making the ‘double’. It didn’t stop him from conducting an interesting service which had few celebrities attend (though not in their jerseys).
According to an eye witness who told us happenings, the service was organized to give thanks to God for their team’s triumph in this year’s league and also ask for the special grace of God for success in next season’s league, Champion’s league and any other competition they will engage in.
