Christians urged to use Christmas to reconcile and forgive
The Assistant Pastor of Buhangizi Church of Uganda in Kamwezi Sub County Rev. Arthur Tusiime has asked Christians to use this Christmas to forgive and reconcile with one another in order to build a peaceful country.
Rev. Tusiime made the call on September 17 while presiding over the thanks giving of Rev. Johnson Tugumizemu held at Hamuhambo church of Uganda in Rubaya Sub County Kabale district. Rev. Tugumizemu who was deployed to Ihunga church of Uganda in Rubanda district by the Bishop of Kigezi Diocese Rt. Rev. George Bagamuhunda was among the 10 deacons ordained at St Peter’s Cathedral, Rugarama in Kigezi Diocese.
Rev. Tusiime said that Christians should use the birth of Jesus Christ to mend broken relationships with the neighbors and within families. He urged the public to embrace Christ in their lives as a way to stop all things against his teachings such as injustices, domestic violence and corruption which he said are rampant in the country just because of greedy and selfish people.
During the service, the Coordinator of Together Alive Initiative in Kigezi Region, Simpson Mpireirwe handed over a wheel chair to George Kaburankuzi, who was involved in an accident on April 5 this year in Kabale town. According to Kaburankuzi, he was knocked by a motorcycle in Kabale town and since then, he cannot walk.
Mpireirwe added that the wheel chair was lobbied by him from Together Alive Initiative; a non government operating in Lubaga Division in Kampala after leaders from Rwanyena Parish asked him for assistance. At the same function, he also donated ten plastic chairs to Hamuhambo church.
The function was attended by a number of Christians, Church leaders and Politicians.
