Christmas messages by different Bishops


Archbishop of the Province of Church of Uganda, the Most Rev. Dr. Stephen Samuel Kaziimba Mugalu has called upon Ugandans to invite the Saviour Jesus Christ into lives and families this Christmas.
Speaking while delivering his Christmas message at the provincial headquarters in Kampala, the archbishop lamented that evil is prospering in Uganda at all levels.
He noted with concern that in many families too many children are suffering because of the bad decisions by their parents. He says similarly the Church has also suffered because of bad decisions by its leaders.

“I have lost count of the number of times I have been sued by a group of “Concerned Christians” because their candidate for Bishop was not elected. Becoming a Bishop is not about seizing power, influence, and status. Instead, it is about empowering others to excel in the gifts of the Spirit for the building up of the Body of Christ and the extension of God’s Kingdom. Too many people think if they get “their man” elected as Bishop, he will save them. That’s just not true. Only Jesus can save us. Christmas reminds us of that.” Archbishop Dr. Kaziimba emphasizes.
He expressed joy that this year saw the province preside over peaceful election and creation of two new dioceses. These are West Ruwenzori and East Busoga dioceses.
In a related development, Bishop Charles Collins Andaku of diocese of Madi west Nile Diocese has called upon people to celebrate this Christmas by sharing the love of Christ and their possessions with others, especially the disadvantaged.


“We should celebrate the true meaning of Christmas in a godly manner not in a secular way by getting drunk, killing, stealing, sexual immorality, fighting, planning and doing evil. The true spirit of Christmas is one of joy and expression of love through sharing of gifts, visiting the needy and living in harmony with one another.” Bishop Andaku stresses.

He however is warning people against indulgence in evil activities such as defilement, drug abuse, assault, GBV, theft, murder among many others, but rather celebrate Christmas 2023 with a difference.
World over, Christians join to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour this Christmas Day on Monday, 25th December.
