This sequence of commentary on spirits of ancestors from Archbishop Peter Sarpong, a pioneer in introducing African culture into Christian worship (see vimeo.com/7347271), takes off from footage of ceremonies opening the King of Akuapem's monthly Council Meeting in Akropong, Ghana (see vimeo.com/9228758). (Though an ancient institution, it's the equivalent of an American "town meeting" discussing issues of water supply, etc., and on this occasion, also the problem of "curses" in day-to-day life.)
