Rt. Rev. Isaac Kwame Boateng, the Bishop of the Akyem Oda Diocese, delivered an inspiring sermon during the thanksgiving service on the final day. He reflected on the traditional practice of extended families sharing meals and supporting one another, contrasting it with the self-centered approach prevalent in modern times.

He urged the congregation to cultivate a compassionate spirit and embrace opportunities to help those in need, even amidst the challenges of contemporary living.

His sermon emphasized the importance of selflessly availing oneself to be used by God in providing for others, just as Jesus did when he fed the hungry multitude with limited resources.

METHOFEST 2023 proved to be a resounding success in its mission to celebrate culture, promote Religious Tourism, and instill a sense of compassion and community among the people.

The Akyem Oda Diocese, as the host, deserves commendation for their excellent organization and execution of the event.
