The All Anglican Men’s Association (AAMA) rounded off its 2018 conference in Owerri Diocese last Sunday with a thanksgiving service where Bishop Cyril Okorocha PhD, blamed Nigeria’s woes on the lack of conscience and accountability on the part of rulers.
In his sermon at the service which took place at St. Thomas (Ang.) Church, Eziama Obiato in the Mbaitoli Local Government Area, Imo State, venue of the conference, Bishop Okorocha challenged the leaders to turn a new leaf and lead with the fear of God.
According to him, the characteristics of a good man include the possession of a sense of accountability, fear of God, transparency and integrity.
He advised delegates to the conference to possess these qualities, stressing the need for parents to live exemplary lives for their children to follow.
“It does not matter what people say about you, rather what God says about you is paramount”, he said.
The Bishop also dedicated a prayer desk, altar rail and table, the pulpit, among others which were donated by members of the congregation.
Among the items dedicated was a baptismal font donated by the Bishop and his wife in memory of their late parents, Mr. Peter Okorocha Nnadi and Mr. Jeremiah Nwobi, all of blessed memory.
The service was conducted by Ven. Chimezie Onyenuma while the first lesson from Gen. 45:1-15 was read by Engr. Sir Baldwin Onozie, the AAma Coordinator, as the second lesson from 11 Timothy 1:1-18 was read by Dr. Sir Amanze Ibekwe.
The church choir was led by Mr. Alex Ndubuisi
