MUKONO – As Christians prepare for the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the Rt. Rev James William Ssebaggala, the bishop of Mukono Diocese, Wednesday, April 17, urged Christians to mend their relationships with others.
Bishop Ssebaggala made the remarks during a press conference at the Mukono Diocese offices.
He said: “We should mend our broken relationships with our neighbours and within families because Christ died to mend the relationship between man and God.”
“It is my prayer as a nation that we reconcile with our neighbouring countries to avoid problems,” he added.
He also congratulated Ugandans upon reaching this year’s Easter.
At the same time Bishop Ssebagala questioned those who are grabbing land especially Church land, those carrying out robbery and murder to stop.
He said: “Grabbing Church land will bring you curses and to your family.”
He said that the love of God towards man is what brought Jesus to this world.
Therefore as a believer, going through various challenges, he said, that you need to know that they are temporary because this was demonstrated by Christ on Good Friday and He rose again on Easter Sunday.
Church of Uganda dedicated this year to children. He, therefore, asked elders to be a voice for them since they are voiceless in society and also to be their role models because children imitate what they see.
“Take them to school, teach them to be hardworking instead of them resorting to betting since it is a very big problem in our country, ” he said, adding: “As a diocese we have introduced scouting and girl guides as a way to equip students and pupils in schools to be hardworking.”
