Greetings in the Name of our Lord and Saviour – Amen. On 23 rd February 2020, all the three Services at the Cathedral appreciated and thanked the outgoing Archbishop of the Church of Uganda and at the same time Diocesan Bishop for the commendable Ministry, Service and love he had shown to the Diocese at large during his tenure of leadership. In his homily, His Grace shared on the Topic “Who am I Lord” based on I Chronicles17:1-27 and Matthew 17:1-9 respectively.
The Bishop pointed out that there is a season for everything and that season creates and determines each individual’s life journey! Using his testimony, he pointed out that God had chosen him at an early stage in life to work as a Church Catechist, Youth Worker, Missionary in Karamoja, Diocesan Secretary and Archdeacon of Bunyoro, Provincial Secretary, Bishop and finally elevated as Archbishop of the Province of the Church of Uganda! In the 43 Years as a Servant of the Lord in the Church at different levels, ONLY God had steered him and provided a Way for him! The Archbishop cautioned the Congregants to always trust in the Lord, allow Him to guide their directions and diligently listen to God’s directive. Specifically, he outlined and called upon the Congregants to observe that:
His Grace concluded the homily by stating that it is God’s grace that sustains all the people – who by default are all sinners BUT ultimately saved by His Grace through repentance and forgiveness from God. From his Heart, Bishop Stanley and Mama Beatrice together with the Family applauded the Congregations at ASC, cherished and appreciated the good team spirit of the Cathedral Pastoral Staff and Council. He pointed out that he would retire in Hoima and all were welcome to visit him.
