Christians on the Left Executive member Heather Staff asks Councillor and CotL member Chika Amadi why she 'Showed Up'
What was it like to become a councillor and why did you do it?
When I became a Councillor, it was unusual and new to the Pentecostal circle for ministers of the Gospel to be openly and directly involved with politics. While my non-believing friends were welcoming of my political path I was also seen as a conformist and received cold shoulders from some people. However, this became a task I took up with relish, as I noticed that a lot of Christians were praying for change in the political platform, felt frustrated by the day yet didn’t participate or get involved. The majority were praying and at the same time murmuring: but scripture teaches us this, ‘Do all things without murmurings and disrupting’. Philippians 2:14 KVJ
