Our Bishop

From the Bishop Desk

The Stewardship or Shepherding is the main objective of the Pastor for the folk of almighty God.The word Pastor itself gives reference in terms of taking his folk to pastures greener.

God has given us gifts in various kinds of talents and resources, pastor ship or stewarding is a joyful responsibility for the sake of God and his people. It has in its own entirety the gifts of Time and Talent of spreading the word of God.

The Great commission the Lord gave to his chosen ones is “Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the in the name of the Son and of the Holy Spirit” and this comes only by the missionary giving of the above mentioned Gifts of time and talent which a Pastor delivers who know him not.

The book of Genesis reveals and tells us that God created Man, Women out of his rib and created the universe and in it all living things necessary for our lives, hence became a powerful source of our lives. Our lives in the similar manner are his Gift. We must also give back our lives for his purpose in the great commission as the Apostle Paul gives reference in the scriptures and exhorts “Present your bodies as living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your reasonable worship. {Romans: 12-1}

This same principal is referred to in the liturgy as we pray to “commit ourselves, one another, and our whole lives to Christ our savior.
