Reverend Folusho Taiwo of the Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion) has called on women to be pragmatic and manage their homes at this time of economic recession.
Taiwo, who is the Vicar of the Church of Holy Cross, Wuye, Abuja, made the call at its Diocesan Sister’s Guild Conference with the theme: “Fan to Flame the Gift of God in You’’ in Abuja on Friday.
He urged women to cut their expenses and save money for the rainy day.
“Women should cut their coats according to their sizes; women who are extravagant in their expenses should cut it so that they will save some money for a rainy day.
“We pray that God almighty will bring us out of this recession; we plunged into recession headlong through impunity and corruption.
“Women apart from being frugal and prudent in the home should talk to their husbands who are making escapades, robbing Peter to pay Paul, and making things unbearable for the country.
“We have to go to God in prayers and back faith with action,’’ he said.
Taiwo also called on women to join hands with the Federal Government and embark on modern agricultural practices.
“Women in positions of authority should work and join hands with the government in power to be able to take out this recession.
“We should stay glued to Christ and he will see us through; there is nothing he cannot do,’’ he said.
Mrs Taiwo Olufunmilayo, Diocesan Coordinator, Sisters’ Guild, Abuja, advised women to take back home what they learnt in the conference and put the lessons into practice.
Olufunmilayo urged women to be happy and give their lives to Christ to make happy homes. (NAN)
