Members of the Knights and Ladies of St. Christopher in the Anglican Diocese of Ikeduru have been charged to be alive to their duties or face delistment.
Consequently, the Relevance Committee, an Ethics and Code of Conduct Unit of the Order, which disciples erring members, has been asked to swing into action immediately.
The president of Ikeduru Council of Knights, Sir Gideon U. Ezeji frowned at the lackluster attitude of some members, warning that the council would no longer tolerate any form of indolence on the part of members.
In his address during their business meeting at St. Paul’s Anglican Church, Umuhu, Atta in Ikeduru local government, the president, however, thanked all for their support and co-operation, particularly those who always attend meetings describing them as “worthy knights”.
Listing the activities and achievements of the council within the period under review, he included evangelistic outreach to various church stations and the complete decking of the council’s secretariat under construction as he reminded the knights of the forthcoming Diocesan Synod enjoining them to participate actively.
In his sermon at the Eucharistic service, the council’s Assistant Chaplain, Rev. Kelechi Nzeagwu enjoined Knights to always humble themselves irrespective of their positions in society and the church.
Preaching on the theme, “seeing yourself as nobody inspite of your exalted position,” Rev. Nzeagwu emphasized the need for Knights to be humble describing humility as the bedrock of worship.
Ven. Josiah Emeribe also urged Knights to be committed totally to the Order’s activities and programmes and also reminded them that knighthood is an honour with great responsibility.
