Rev. Canon Gaster Nsereko, the dean, St Paul’s Cathedral, Kako, the seat of West Buganda Diocese, has implored Christians to always give thanks to God for whatever He enables them get through.
While preaching during the 3rd February Sunday service, Canon Nsereko, stressed that is prudent for Christians to thank God for the good things He enables them achieve.
The dean’s sermon, which he based from Psalms 107:1-22, stemmed from Kako Primary School parents, teachers and 2018 Primary Seven candidates, who had come to give thanks to God for the good 2018 Primary Leaving Exams (PLE) results.
Kako Primary had 22 candidates where 5, 15 and 2 candidates passed in first, second and third grade, respectively
“God sees us through a lot of hard times and makes us winners, but [many] don’t find it important to come back and say thanks to Him, the Almighty,” Canon Nsereko disappointedly noted.
He said the few who labor to do, tend to do it in a pretence as they focus more on the ceremony at their homes than what they bring before God in Church.
When giving thanks to God, Canon Nsereko noted, one should know the purpose for doing so; and further know how best do it.
This he said, brings out the divine meaning for thanks giving, warning that short of this (purpose and how to thank God) the thanks giving may manifest into pretence.
It’s from this background, that he suggested procedure for Christians who wish to give thanks to God.
Canon Nsereko said one can get a list of pressing items which the Church needs and see if he can offer an item as a way of giving thanks, than Christians choosing what to bring which can consequently duplicate services.
