From the Primate's Desk
The Most Rev HENRY CHUKWUDUM NDUKUBA
Our belongingness to the class of God’s people namely, the church and subservience to the Lordship of Jesus Christ appropriate to all adult Christian people, the all important task of bringing up our children, Christ’s way.
The gospel of Jesus Christ as St. Matthew in chapter 19:14 records has it that, Jesus admonishes thus: “let the children come to me, do not stop them for the kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these (NIV rendition).
This singular instance tells us of what central a position, children and the childlike faithful occupy in the heart of Christ. Hence, He commands that Guardians, Caregivers and Teachers of the word (his disciples) ought to remove every hindrance to the welcoming of these little ones into our community of faith.
