Among my first impressions of Ghana was how deeply religious the country is. In fact the question I got asked most frequently by Ghanaian’s was, “do you have faith?”
With a religious mix comprising approximately 70% Christian, 20% Islam, 5% traditional beliefs and only 5% Irreligious, religion is everywhere in Ghana and it’s often found in the most unlikely places.
Journeying through villages, towns and cities, God and mammon collide in the most unlikely circumstances.
This got me thinking that perhaps we could adopt this practise in the UK. M&S could become Miracle & Salvation, John Lewis would perhaps be much improved if it were known as Jesus Lives and if only HMV had become His Master’s Virtues, then I feel certain liquidation would have been avoided!
