BISHOP'S LENTEN MESSAGE

Beloved in the Lord, 

It is in submission to the Power, Will and Sovereignty of The Almighty God and Father of all that we welcome you into this Lenten season. It is our hope that the joy of the Lord will sustain us all through this period. 

As we enter this season we must be reminded that this is a period for personal and corporate stock taking and appraisal as Christians both of our spiritual maturity and effect on the society. Therefore our focus this season should be on where we are in our relationship with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and what impart our Christian message has made, and is making in our immediate environment. 

It is very true that we are daily faced with situations and circumstances that challenge the actual translation of our Christian message into action, but this reason reminds as well as equips us with the truth that our Lord and Savior while in human flesh was tempted just as we are. "We don’t have a priest who is out of touch with our reality”. He’s been through weakness and testing, experienced it all – all but the sin (Hebrews 4:14).  

In our Lenten meditation as a Diocese, we are reminding ourselves of the need and urgency of "Walking in the footsteps of our Lord, Jesus the Christ”. We must consider and without any hesitation resolve to let Christ guide us into His life of Prayer, Obedience, Humility, Genuine Love and Forgiveness so that we will share in His victory come Easter morning. 

Therefore as we follow our Lord's step of self emptying, let us seek to renew our commitment and zeal to the things of God. Let us resolve to pursue all that makes for peace, unity and the well being of all. Let us love all, but more so, those with whom we share the same faith-our fellow laborers and members of our Diocese.  “And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”

! And to Him who is able to keep you from falling and to present you faultless before His throne; to the only wise God be all glory honor and majesty now till the end of the age. Amen.  

Your Brother and Bishop,

PRESIDENTIAL ADDRESS 2018

SYNOD PRAYER

Almighty God, the fountain of all wisdom and grace, Who mercifully sent Your Holy Spirit to strengthen and encourage your people and promised to be with Your Church  all through the ages. We thank You for Your grace to gather in this year's Synod.  We praise You for life provision and protection over the past year. Fulfill now O Lord Your divine promises, as we gather here in Your name.

Heavenly Father, forgive our imperfections in all things, guide and rule our minds; direct all our deliberations. And may we only seek Your honour and glory, the good of Your Church and welfare of others.

Gracious Lord, may it please You to inspire our hearts to discover Your Will. May our faith in You never waver and our resolve to follow You never grow weak. May our individual and Communal life be eloquent testimonies of Your Almightiness and love. Grant this for His sake, who reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, Jesus the Christ our Lord. Amen.
