Zambia needs a long term vision for future generations through the application of the word of God to offer positive direction by wearing it as a ‘necklace’ to use it daily.
This call was made during a Moment of Transformation Conference held at St Peter’s Anglican Church in Lusaka by Council of Churches in Zambia (CCZ) General Secretary Rev Suzanne Matale when she addressed the gathering under the theme “Growing a Heart for the Nation”.
“Christian must stand up and show concern for the nation and speak out on issues that concern them in order to offer advice and direction especially on issues of governance,” Re Matale said.
She lamented that currently the inequalities are growing because Christians who have the knowledge from the Bible do not use it to challenge situations.
And Rev Matale explained that there is lack of servant hood in modern day leadership which exhibits selfishness and self centeredness that has caused despair among citizens in the country.
And speaking at the same function that was characterized by song and dance, Reformed Church in Zambia (RCZ) Kamwala Congregation Rev in Charge Daniel Daka urged the congregants to focus on improving their communities by being shining examples in fostering positive change.
“We must all start from Jerusalem, which is our homes to improve lives, the environment and bring about positive change in order for people to see that we are true disciples of the Lord”, he said.
