Lusaka, February 14, ZANIS…….Anglican Church Archdeacon of Lusaka
Father Jackson Katete says the country needs men and women of God to
help to dispel the hatred and tribalism that has rocked the nation.
Father Katete said the just ended 2015 elections exposed areas of
division in the country which can only be mended by men and women with
a true relationship with God who look beyond the political, tribal
and ethnical background of the people.
He said the Bible teaches that people are one in Christ despite
their differences in denomination, political and tribal inclinations.
Father Katete said this when he officially opened an Archdeaconry’s
Alpha Leaders Training Workshop for community leaders of the Anglican
Church at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross in Lusaka today.
He said the training of about 800 members from Lusaka is meant to help
the church members to renew their Christian lives to be true believers
of God’s word and not just being ordinary members of the church.
Father Katete said the Alpha training programme has started in Lusaka and will
be extended to other parts of the country for members to teach one
another how to experience the love and fellowship of God.
He said the Church needs people who are bold enough to go out into
the world and bring those who are lost in sin and hatred closer to
Father Katete explained that being in the church for a long time does
not make one a Christian but instead having a personal and transformative
encounter with the lord Jesus Christ.
