The Archbishop of the Anglican Church of Kenya, Dr. Eliud Wabukala gave the lent mesaage for the year at All Saints Cathedral Nairobi on Wednesday 22nd February 2012.
Addressing the congregation during the Ash Wednesday service which is marked annually at the beginning of the lent season, he called upon the people to take personal responsibility to create the desired change in the community and nation at large. "The good news of the gospel is that transformation begins with ordinary men, women and children, however sinful or insignificant we may feel. It is not a responsibility we can leave to governments and agencies, but a challenge to fulfil the purposes of Almighty God in our place for our time", he remarked.
To the nation of Kenya, he urged all
Christians to model what it means to live in peace, practicing tolerance and forgiveness in this election season.
