Loading...

Ugandan clergy,Rev Canon Christine Shimanya has urged christians to
give offertory in church with foreign currencies.



The Anglican Chaplain for
Parliament, Rev Canon
Christine Shimanya, has
advised Christians who give
offertory in Shillings to also
bring dollars and pounds, Daily Monitor Newspaper
reports.



"Some Christians have dollars
and pounds earned from
international conferences;
instead they change the money to Shillings before
bringing it to church as
offertory. Bring those dollars
and pounds, God needs them,"


Rev Can Shimanya said while
delivering a sermon at Namugongo Martyrs Church of Uganda on Sunday,
July 9. She also criticised Christians
who prefer physical exercises
to prayers on Sunday. Canon Henry Ssegawa also
supported Rev Canon
Shimanya's call, saying the
church needs money with
higher purchasing power.


"Some church members
are already contributing
in dollars, pounds,
Kenya Shillings name it.
They have told you to
bring dollars and pounds so please give dollars
and pounds as offertory," he said. Rev Shimanya also urged the
congregation to seek God in order to prosper.


"Repent repeatedly and
seek God in your life,
business and at work.
You find that you pray but none of your prayers have been answered. You have to
repent to clear and
clean the way for blessings," she said.

"If you plant righteousness in the family, you will reap
good children. Be strict
and tough on children to
have them grow up into responsible persons,"
Rev Shimanya advised.
