Thursday August 5th, Henry Mwaniki took to the podium to inspire the clergy in Mbeere diocese on stewardship of God given resources. At a conference convened by Bishop Maurice Musumba of Mbeere and held at Almano Centre in Sagana town, the over 60 clergy and diocesan workers were taken through the stewardship mandate God’s resources including money, time, and people property amongst others.
The 3 Day training equipped the men of the cloth in the Anglican church not just on stewardship but also on our identity in Christ, the role of the church, balancing between family and ministry, clergy and livelihood, performance management among others.
Is the family of the clergy different from other families? Is it special in any way? If so how should the clergy behave or run the family?
There is a great difference between the family of the clergy and the family of other people. In the past the clergy moved, settled and lived with his wife and children. Today, it looks different. The family of the clergy needs a father figure. If it is Monday, stay home. Take live and stay with your family and impart the qualities is very important.
Movement from one ministry, parish to another is a challenge not just for the clergy but the entire family.
This meeting gave birth to a new partnership between the Diocese of Mbeere and CMS-Africa. December 2014 will see this new partnership come to fruition when the diocese of Mbeere hold a weeklong convention for the entire faithful under the diocese.
