Christmas Day, at the EP (Evangelical Presbyterian) Church, Nungua, Accra.

One of the reasons I enjoy attending EP Church worship services is because the music is so good. There is also an incredible amount of hospitality. As a minority in Ghana, the Ewe people really love you if you take an interest in their language and culture.

I showed up at church on Christmas morning without any prior announcement, together with a Ghanaian friend Jonas. When the pastor learned I was a minister from the Presbyterian Church (USA), she invited me to take part in baptisms and the confirmation of 18 youth that day.

I can't imagine in the US that we would ever show this much welcome and hospitality in church to an unannounced visiting pastor!
