Maseru, Feb. 08 — As the nation commemorates 200 years of bicentenary, the need for the church to work in solidarity towards the transformation journey is vital.
The Anglican Church of Lesotho (ACL) Bishop, Dr. Vicentia Kgabe said this with regard to the 200 years journey, saying gone are the days when churches were working in silos.
She explained that the church has a mandate to transform the nation, adding while the Founder of Basotho has shown good principles, values that the spirit of unity must prevail if the nation is to prosper hence the nation exists today, the church owes this nation and its Founder that much.
She alluded that areas that can collaborate the church include food security, enhancing quality education among Basotho children as churches own many schools as well as offering quality health services at their different health centres.
“Through these services, we can go a long way in helping the country attain Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s), thus bringing a positive impact on the lives of Basotho,” she stressed.
Dr. Kgabe stated that the society of today knows and has heard of the past history, that it can not change the past hence ought to remember the past, rejoice about this commemoration and look forward to the future with the spirit of changing where things have gone wrong.
In another story, the Agency has established that the two hundred years prayer will be held in Maseru tomorrow, Friday.
ACL is one of the churches meant to reconcile and transform the lives of Basotho into glorifying the body of Christ.
