Additional secretary finance department, Kikheto Y. Sema on Sunday gave a clarion call to the people of Pughoboto area especially Sumi Baptist Akukuhou Kuqhakulu (SABAK) members to make peace and not pieces thereby underlining the role of the Church and its leaders.
He was exhorting a congregation of the 10th Triennial Convention-cum-98th annual session SABAK at Ghokimi village on the last day of the three-day convention.
Kikheto said that the need of the hour was striving towards peace and harmony, which should come through the efforts of the Church and its leaders. “We need peace, not pieces; unity not disunity,” he said and exhorted the Church leaders to watch out for the Church in humility and for the spiritual life of the flock. He also stressed on the role of the Church and its leaders to be peacemakers and prayer warriors. For spiritual leaders to carry out these works, Kikheto said, they should also go back to the roots starting from their own homes, setting a strong family foundation and lead an exemplary life
Underscoring the need for the Church and the government to progress side by side, the additional secretary said that a healthy society required a vibrant Church and an energetic State. He said the Church dealt with the eternal order while the government dealt with the temporal order thus putting across the message that God made human beings material bodies and immortal spirits. Though the Church was more important, Kikheto said human beings also cannot neglect the material needs of the bodied existence.
He exhorted the gathering to always stand for the truth, to be humble and not to dwell too much in the past while also stressing the need to retrospect and look to the future. Kikheto emphasized on the need to preserve flora and fauna while talking about the rising dangers of global warming.
Bringing the word of God in the morning session, Chief Medical Officer, Dimapur, Dr. Sukhato Wotsa talked about how a Christian must be prepared and have a mind to suffer. He said the Holy Bible was the most important possession in day-to-day life of the people and exhorted the congregation to acknowledge God in all ways.
Earlier, special numbers were presented by Mishilimi Baptist Church, convention choir etc.
The three-day SABAK triennial convention saw speakers such as ES SABAK, Rev. G. Kiyeto Sema, Evangelist SABAK, Rev. Kiheto Sumi and others.
