‘Forgiveness biggest challenge for Zimbabwe Anglicans,’ says bishop

first_img Rector Knoxville, TN Rector Collierville, TN Comments are closed. February 8, 2013 at 12:58 pm I hope the youth will continue to believe the Church is composed of the Body of Christ, with Christ as the Head. The buildings serve a purpose, but they are not the Church. If you believe that you have been forgiven first, and that Christ gives you the grace to forgive, it becomes more reasonable and possible to forgive. The Our Father seems to put the emphasis on our forgiving BEFORE we are forgiven, but I think that it is the other way around. Since we have been forgiven by God (Christ died on the cross to take away sin) we are now able to forgive others with his grace…not through our own power, but his.

The church needs to find new ways of teaching on healing and forgiveness,” he said.The bishop was referring to the pain suffered after breakaway bishop Nolbert Kunonga and his supporters grabbed church properties, schools and orphanages, leaving loyal Anglicans without any place to worship.“All our properties are now back in our hands,” the bishop said. “We know that Dr. Kunonga tried to go back to court but I don’t think it will go anywhere.”Gandiya is grateful to God for having delivered the properties back to the diocese. He said, “God is faithful and this is something we have experienced during the different moments in our diocese. We can testify to his goodness and faithfulness.”The bishop said that the time spent “in exile” made it difficult for the church to pursue many church programs because they had to use rented properties. “Now we can pursue other aspects of ministry with a lot of joy and appreciation,” he said.Anglicans in Zimbabwe still have the challenge of rebuilding and renovating the various properties that had been through many years of neglect.Gandiya said, “We are commissioning a forensic audit to ascertain and establish the extent of damage and misuse. One parish has already spent over US$30,000 for renovation works and they are not yet done.”Despite the joy at having returned to the buildings, an Anglican youth leader from the Diocese of Harare, Tafadzwa Chimbete, feels it is taking too long for people to adapt to the new reality. He believes there are still many more “pressing issues” that the church needs to deal with.“We need to find a way of getting the youths excited about the Church of God,” he said. “With the negative influences coming in from the Internet and the media, young people need to access their spiritual standing. We need to continue fighting because the (warfare) does not end here.”[Watch December’s news report of Zimbabwe Anglican’s return to the Cathedral at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9G2Ubqw6Xyk] Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

Viral Joe Kelly-Astros Instagram post is fake

first_imgView this post on Instagram I thought Joe Kelly really posted this on Instagram. It’s fake though 😂🤣 pic.twitter.com/pOSJs0D1mp— Baseball Bros (@BaseballBros) July 30, 2020MORE: Joe Kelly’s harsh suspension sends warning to stop throwing at Astros playersCheck out the intense caption:“Hey guys, with the suspension I received from the @mlb for my actions on Tuesday, I’d like to apologize… TO ABSOLUTELY NOBODY! THE ASTROS ARE HIDING IN THEIR DUGOUTS BECAUSE I’M SUSPENDED. Just wait till I get out.”The account that posted the photo is @joe.kelly17, which many believed to be Kelly’s actual account. It is actually a fan-run account and does not represent Kelly. Joe Kelly had nothing to do with a popular Instagram post, despite it going viral Wednesday.The photoshopped image shows the Dodgers relief pitcher holding three babies that have the heads of Astros stars Carlos Correa, Jose Altuve and Alex Bregman.  Here is the original image, shared by Kelly’s wife in June. “Mom, I don’t want Corona to go away. I don’t want Dad to go back to baseball.”-Knox 😭 (mind you, after he broke my heart with this line, it ended with me having to explain that baseball is what Dad loves & is how we are able to buy him more Star Wars Legos…he replies, “Yeah, Dad needs to go play baseball now.” 🤣) . . The fact that I get to raise children with this guy makes life so special. Navigating this whole parent thing with you has been nothing short of a blast. Seeing the relationship and bond that you have with your best friend, Knox, makes me all the more excited to watch the relationships you build with Crue & Blake over the years. You put your all into your role as Dad. God definitely knew that you were meant to be a father & I thank him daily for Zaddy Joseph ❤️#DILFSofFathersDayA post shared by Ashley Kelly (@ashleynicokelly) on Jun 21, 2020 at 8:09am PDTKelly was handed an eight-game suspension by MLB for throwing a fastball behind Bregman’s head and taunting Correa on Tuesday night at Minute Maid Park in Houston, presumably in retaliation for the Astros’ illegal sign-stealing during the 2017 season, which concluded with them beating the Dodgers in the World Series. Kelly was not a member of that Dodgers team, however.There’s no love lost between the Dodgers and the Astros pic.twitter.com/FDnC1AXCpm— L.A.
