Today Sunday 14-3-2021 has been a Mission Sunday in Namirembe Diocese. Every Church contributed to the construction of the Mission house on Namirembe hill. Here at St. Stephen's Church Luzira, the sermon was led by Rev. Agnes Tendo Ssemwanga basing on 1Cor. 8:1-15
2 Corinthians 8:1 And now, brothers and sisters, we want you to know about the grace that God has given the Macedonian churches. 2 In the midst of a very severe trial, their overflowing joy and their extreme poverty welled up in rich generosity. 3 For I testify that they gave as much as they were able, and even beyond their ability. Entirely on their own, 4 they urgently pleaded with us for the privilege of sharing in this service to the Lord's people. 5 And they exceeded our expectations: They gave themselves first of all to the Lord, and then by the will of God also to us. 6 So we urged Titus, just as he had earlier made a beginning, to bring also to completion this act of grace on your part. 7 But since you excel in everything—in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in complete earnestness and in the love we have kindled in you —see that you also excel in this grace of giving. 8 I am not commanding you, but I want to test the sincerity of your love by comparing it with the earnestness of others. 9 For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich. 10 And here is my judgment about what is best for you in this matter. Last year you were the first not only to give but also to have the desire to do so. 11 Now finish the work, so that your eager willingness to do it may be matched by your completion of it, according to your means. 12 For if the willingness is there, the gift is acceptable according to what one has, not according to what one does not have. 13 Our desire is not that others might be relieved while you are hard pressed, but that there might be equality. 14 At the present time your plenty will

THE MOST REV. JANANI LUWUM, ARCHBISHOP CHURCH OF UGANDA, RWANDA, BURUNDI AND BOGA ZAIRE.
Janani Jakaliya Luwum (c. 1922 – 16 February 1977)
Luwum was born in the village of Mucwini in the Kitgum District to Acholi parents. He attended Gulu High School and Boroboro Teacher Training College, after which he taught at a primary school.
On 6th January 1948 a young school teacher, Janani Luwum, was converted to the charismatic Christianity of the East African Revival, in his own village in Acoli, Uganda.
In January 1949 Luwum went to a theological college at Buwalasi, in eastern Uganda. A year later he came back a catechist. In 1953 he returned to train for ordination. He was ordained deacon on St Thomas's Day, 21st December 1955, and priest a year later. His progress was impressive: after two periods of study in England, he became principal of Buwalasi. Then, in September 1966, he was appointed Provincial Secretary of the Church of Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi and Boga-Zaire. It was a difficult position to occupy, and these were anxious days. But Luwum won a reputation for creative and active leadership, promoting a new vision with energy and commitment. Only three years later he was consecrated bishop of Northern Uganda, on 25th January 1969.
After five years he was appointed Archbishop of the Metropolitan Province of the Church of Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi and Boga-Zaire from 1974 to 1977 and one of the most influential leaders of the modern church in Africa.
On 12th February 1977 Luwum delivered a protest to Amin against all acts of violence that were allegedly the work of the security services. Church leaders were summoned to Kampala and then ordered to leave, one by one. Luwum turned to Bishop Festo Kivengere and said, "They are going to kill me. I am not afraid". Finally alone, he was taken away and murdered. Later his body was buried near St Paul's Church, Mucwini.
Can you please share this logo. It indicates that the person who wears mask and has this logo is deaf and in some cases wears a hearing aid. In these difficult COVID times they cannot read lips which makes it very difficult for them. Very few people know what this sign means. Deaf and hard of hearing people will be grateful to you. Thank you 🙏🏼

Glory to the Father, the Son and the holy Spirit.
We are pleased to welcome Ven. Canon Moses Banja as the new Chief Priest of Luzira Archdeaconry. Transition is sometimes not easy but we look forward to working alongside you as we live out our faith. From everyone at St. Stephens Church of Uganda 🇺🇬 Luzira.
"Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."
—Philippians 4:6-7 (NIV)
It seems too simple. And sometimes our voices feel too small. But when we pray, we allow God to start growing our capacity to love each other as Jesus does — even people who are the most different from us.
As we approach the 2021 election(s), we’re humbled that God saw our anger, cries, confusion, and prejudice and still loved us enough to send His Son to be our Saviour. That perspective calms our frustration and calls us to prayer.
My prayer is keep peace. Cast your vote and do what the government has instructed you to do. Avoid leading yourself into trouble.
Dear Nebbi Diocese Church of Uganda community, we're terribly sorry to hear about the passing of your Bishop Rt. Rev. Alphonse Watho-kudi. May our condolences bring you consolation and peace during this painful time.
PRAYER FOR THE FORTH COMING ELECTIONS IN UGANDA:
Dear Lord God, we thank You for allowing us to live in a nation where we have the ability to freely vote for our leaders. We know that You do not make mistakes and that there is a season for everything. We ask that You guide us as a nation as we elect leaders on all levels. Give peace to every candidate to campaign freely in the remaining days. Halt all the disruptions and unequalized methods of handling candidates by the state organs on all levels. God, we have gone through many challenges and blood shed since the days of colonialism. We rebuke the spirit of bloodshed in Uganda. We pray that You will raise up and seat godly men and women to make decisions for our villages, our cities, our constituents and our country. For we know that You are in control, that You know our future and no matter what, You are on Your throne and will reign for ever and ever. Amen.
Follow the calender dear brethrens.

Ven. Canon Moses Banja later delivered the sermon basing on the gospel according to
St. John 5:1-12 "I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit ...."
Lord of yesterday, today and tomorrow,
we gather here this first Sunday of the New Year,
in a mixture of hope, anticipation, fear, excitement, and expectation.
We do not know what the year holds for us.
there are things we are afraid of:
worries about health and family, job security and finances.
There is much to look forward to –
weddings or anniversaries or baptisms,
holidays to enjoy,
friends to laugh with.
this year is full of uncertainty and hope.
Whatever the year holds for us, though,
we trust You, and we place every day of this year in your care
knowing that, as in the past, You are with us,
caring for us with constant love.
And so Lord, we place ourselves into your keeping
and dedicate our lives to your service
through Jesus Christ, your Son, our Saviour. Amen.
May the blessings of Christ be always with you in all the ups and downs of your life. May your life be happy and joyful forever. Happy New Year 2021!
“Satisfaction lies in the effort, not in the attainment, full effort is full victory.” -
Today 30/12/2020 we say goodbye to our beloved Archdeacon Ven. Can. Isaac Membe Kijjambu. He has served with us for 13 years. Glory to God. He's going to his new post at Mengo Archdeaconry in Namirembe diocese.
He's been the pillar in finishing our magnificent Church. We can't forget him for the much effort he has put in. His name is engraved in St. Stephens Church Luzira.
May God continue to bless him and family in their service.
Dear Father God, Thank you for the Word and the truth it provides. I call upon the Prince of Peace to dwell in our living place. Lord, we will choose to see the good in our day to day lives and to practice the just, pure and lovely things so that our light may shine bright onto others, encouraging them to shine even brighter. In Your name we pray, Amen.
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me—practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.
May this verse strike a response in our hearts that fills us with your peace.
The St. Stephens day:
Today 26/12/2020 we celebrate the St. Stephens day. St. Stephen was the first Christian martyre. He Ministered to many people and spoke with great wisdom given by God to all who would hear. St. Stephen spoke about Jesus and how Jesus was the saviour promised by God. Many who heard him speak became followers of Jesus.
There were many, however, that were opposed the teachings of St. Stephen.
Acts 6 and 7
Here at St. Stephens Church of Uganda Luzira, the service is graced with Holy Baptism.
May you all enjoy the grace of God as we celebrate this day.

"Give, and it will be given to you…
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for Your generous giving Spirit. Because of Your great love for us, You gave. Because of Your loving generous Spirit within us, we can in turn love and give generously. Please show us the ways You want us to give. Open our eyes to the opportunities around us, whether it is to give a meal in the name of Jesus. Comfort those who mourn, encourage those who are sick and suffering, donate to meet a need, or any other opportunity. Please help us to see and prompt us to act. May we allow Your love to shine through us to touch a life for Jesus, in whose Holy name we pray, amen.
"Give, and it will be given to you: A good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be poured into your lap. For the measure you use will be the measure you receive.”

[11/29/20] Almighty and everlasting God, you are the fountain of all peace, spiritual and temporal.

**Who I am even in the time of crisis?
13 _In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise_,14 _Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased_
**Who is an over comer?
He is that person who believes in Jesus.
Our identity as believers dear Brothers and Sisters especially in this time of conflict and crisis should be visible. No matter the situation, we should always make this declaration and believe it.
I am created by God
He designed me, so am not a mistake.
His son died for me so that I be forgiven.
He picked me to be his own, so am chosen.
He redeemed, so I am wanted.
He showed me grace so that I could be saved.
He has a future for me because he loves me.
We should therefore not wonder anymore who we are and what may come out of this.
We know that we are children of God.
This should be our declaration every moment and especially when we no longer believe in ourselves or when we feel like things are not working for you.
You are an over comer and your identity is in Jesus.
✝AMIDST WAR, BE AN AGENT OF PEACE!
This is a difficult time for most of us Ugandans, but do not grow weary. God promised to be with us when we are going through waters, rivers, and fire (Is. 43:2).
Amidst all this, be an agent of peace. Take action not to escalate a riot, but to bring about calm. Do not take advantage of this chaos to hurt or harm your fellow citizen. See this time as an opportunity to do what pleases God, and He will reward you!
As an individual, do not give up on trusting Him for rescue. Do not stop calling upon Him. Do not give up on doing good. I say it again, amidst this war, be an agent of peace. It will make a big difference.
May the Lord bless you for your peaceful actions!

Continue praying for our Motherland.
Read carefully, analyze and understand this verse.
Be transformed by the renewal of your mind.
Romans 12:2 (ESV)
"Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect."
Dear Heavenly Father. Please give us spiritual discernment through the power and indwelling of your Holy Spirit within us and through the wisdom of your Word. As we pray and read your Word, and as we rely on your guidance each day, we pray that our minds will comprehend what you are teaching us. May our spirits bear witness with our brothers and sisters in Christ. Please keep our families safe from all harm and direct our paths each day. We pray these things in the name of our Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.
"Do not judge by appearances, but judge with right judgment.”
All saints day collect;
Almighty God, you have knit together your elect in one communion and fellowship in the mystical Body of your Son: Give us grace so to follow your blessed saints in all virtuous and godly living, that we may come to those ineffable joys that you have prepared for those who truly love you; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who with you and the Holy Spirit lives and reigns, one God, in glory everlasting. Amen.
YOU ARE PREDISTINED AND CALLED.
Then, having known us and chosen us, “He also
predestined” us (Romans 8:29).
To be predestined means that God has planned the course of your life in advance. He works out the course that your life is to take. He knows where you will be each day of the week, each hour of the day. He knows the problems and the crises that are going to confront you, and He has an answer for every one. God has no emergencies. He is never taken by surprise.
Nothing ever happens in the universe that God has not made provision for.
Continuing with Romans 8:30 we read, “Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called.” The fourth phase is the point at which His call comes. When God has foreknown us, chosen us and predestined us, then He intervenes in our lives at a particular moment and calls us.
The call of God is the point at which God’s eternal purposes emerge out of eternity and impact us in time. That is why the call is such a crucial moment in our lives. You may have been living a careless, self-pleasing, materialistic, self-indulgent life, unaware of anything that God had planned for you. Then, in a situation that you certainly would never have planned, you were suddenly confronted by the fact that God had called you, and that your whole destiny was goingto be determined by the way you responded. Eternity will be too short for me to praise God for the fact that, by His grace, I said yes to His call.
Believe me when I say that I had no idea what I was committing myself to. God usually does not give us too clear a picture. He will, however, give you, a kind of blue print for your life. God speaks to you through the Holy Spirit.
Most of the promises that God gives us are far too great to achieve by our own efforts. We just have to embrace them by faith and say, “God, You said it; You’ll do it.
Embrace His calling today, and let Him do the rest, in Jesus name. Amen
