In what seems to be a dream that can never be achieved has now come to reality as two warring factions of Christ Apostolic Church on Friday December 22 gathered to pray for the unity of the Church.
The prayer meeting was said to have kept the peace committee on hold as the organiser said the prayer was a directive from God noting that God had ordered them not hold any conciliatory meeting until they prayed in three places. I.e CAC irefin which was the first step, then CAC Itabale Olugbode and the origin of the Church Ikeji Arakeji.
The first prayer meeting which held at CAC Irefin was attended by the two presidents who sat side by side and always engaged in one discussion or the other through the programme.
Unlike before when Pastor would be afraid of themselves, all members of the church who attended the prayer meeting from both sides were happy as they prayed together without any fear or suspicion.
Message of unity of the church took the center stage at the programme where the President, Christ Apostolic Church General Executive Council, Pastor Abraham Akinosun said peace in CAC was paramount than any other thing now.
He said “in the past twenty-seven years, many people had gone with this crisis, and those of us that are alive should as a matter of importance work toward peace and unity of Christ Apostolic Church.”
Pastor Akinosun appealed to all members of Christ Apostolic Church to continue praying for the unity of the church
The outgoing General Evangelist, Christ Apostolic Church, Pastor Kayode Abiara said peace had come to stay in Christ Apostolic Church, warning those who were causing conflict to desist.
President of Supreme Council, Christ Apostolic church Pastor Gabreal Lagunju urged all members of the church to embrace peace.
The crisis which started in 1990 has witnessed so many cases which could not solve the crisis.
Many of those who began the crisis are dead.
