...Clergyman Admonishes Liberians
An Episcopal Priest has admonished Liberians to uphold peace and embrace 2015 with hope, determination and reconciliatory heart.
Rev. Fr. Michael T. Sie, Rector of the St. Augustine Episcopal Parish in Bardnersville, outside Monrovia, said hatred and a stubborn heart should not be given a space in this New Year.
Delivering his sermon on Sunday, January 4, 2015 at the edifice of the Church, Rev. Sie also stressed the need for Christians to bear a name of forgiveness and do away with malice.
As he mounted the pulpit to sermonize on the Theme: “Don't leave Jesus behind 2015”, these were his words “Embracing this new year with hope, peace, determination and reconciliatory heart. Let our attitudes and comportments exemplify that indeed we are a new people in this New Year. But most of all if the year 2014 was a bad year for you, you did not accomplish anything and all that you wish for or dream about did not come through, I say to you this 2015 will be a better year for you and your family in the name of Jesus.”
The youthful Episcopal Clergyman believes that hatred, malice and a stubborn heart have no place in the Kingdom of God.
He predicted that there will be showers of blessing and that God is going to give Liberians a new day, adding “Be it job, marriage, a child, a house, peace in your homes and families, etc... With God above the year 2015 will be the year for us all and no negative plan against you this year shall prosper.”
Meditating from the Gospel of Luke 2:41-52, Rev. Sie called on members of the St. Augustine Episcopal Church to work together for the growth of their Church.
