The seminar targeted one thousand participants from different communities and churches within Liberia and several motivational speakers from in country.
Speaking with this paper during the course of the seminar Rev. Cleopatra J.A. Watson explained that the seminar is gear toward helping people in this present day face the reality of the world and the nation.
Rev. Watson further noted that they are embarking on four others topics aside from the key topic which is copying with present day realities.
she named drugs and substance abuse, controlling sexual habits which has to do with STD, STI, stress and stress management, how to management stress in present day reality.
According to her, it is their own way as a church in helping the society because they believe that government alone cannot do everything, but rather, it has to be done through collective effort to have children turned from drugs, sex and alcohol.
“This is our own way of helping our country, society and people because it is not all the time government will have to do everything. Government can do some and us as a church organization can help the society because Jesus commanded the church to meet the spiritual and holistic needs of the people, so we find this way as a church to contribute to meeting the needs of our people.”
