Murongo: 16-17.09.2018. The two days were memorable to Rev. Berwanaho Siliacus Mcheza. He made two important vows in his life. On Sunday Rev. Berwanaho received his Holy Ministry as a pastor at Murongo congregation, and Bishop Elisa Buberwa, the retired bishop of North Western Diocese graced the service.
During the service, Bishop Buberwa preached from Galatians 5:13 “For you were called to freedom, brethren; only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love, be servants of one another.” He reminded everyone that the source of our mission is the word of God, and that pastors should learn from the ministry of Jesus the core values of humility, compassion, and living a selfless life.
He said that pastoral ministry is a holy ministry bestowed upon one by God himself, through a process. He said that there is a trend of self-proclaimed bishops, pastors, or prophets, who are overly excited about being prophets, pastors or bishops. “But you are called to be a servant of God’s flock, serve them with love, humility and selflessly.
Wait, I haven’t forgotten, I said two important vows. Monday morning was another memorable day in the history of Rev. Berwanaho , he tied a knot with Rev. Eviness Sospeter, and they have written a history in KAD of the first pastor to pastor couple. Rev. Eviness was ordained few months ahead of Rev. Berwanaho.
KAD wishes Mr. and Mrs. Berwanaho the best on their wonderful journey as they build their life together, but with prayers, KAD also extends the best wishes to Rev. Berwanaho as he is consecrating to a life of service to the people of God.
1 Timothy 3 1-2 “The saying is sure: If any one aspires to the office of bishop, he desires a noble task. Now a bishop must be above reproach, the husband of one wife, temperate, sensible, dignified, and hospitable, and an apt teacher”
