Thanksgiving: Anglicans celebrate Kunonga redemption

HARARE - Chad Gandiya, Anglican Church prelate, is hosting the first thanksgiving ceremony since the defeat of renegade bishop Nolbert Kunonga.

Precious Shumba, spokesperson of the Anglican Church Province of Central Africa (CPCA), told the Daily News that the church’s Harare diocese will hold the function at the Harare Gardens on Sunday.

“On Sunday we are giving thanks to the Lord for protecting us for redeeming us out of hutapwa waKunonga, (Kunonga’s oppression),” Shumba said.

He said church members from the country’s four provinces were going to take part in the Thanksgiving ceremony.

“The Lord has been faithful to us over the years, and on Sunday, all the Anglican churches that are drawn from Mashonaland East, Mashonaland West, Mashonaland Central and Harare Metropolitan provinces are attending the celebrations,” he said.

The gathering marks the commemoration of Gandiya’s Supreme Court victory of November 19, 2012 when the highest court in the land ruled that all church properties be given to Gandiya’s faction.

Precious, if you are a true Christian you should not be celebrating the so called defeat of Kunonga. Instead the Anglican Church should be reaching out. Look at apostle Paul and what he did and how God called him. Remember Jesus saying get thee behind me Satan. He recognized the spirit that was at work and this went on to say to Peter, on this rock I will build my church. The rock of faith in Jesus. Kunonga messed, but as brothers in Christ I suggest the Anglican instead should be praying for GOD TO FORGIVE AND BRING Norbert back in the fold. If I was Anglican I would be praying this way. Imagine the impact on the nation of seeing Chad and Norbert hand in hand and sharing communion. No one is beyond redemption.... Always remember that. God said, let the weeds grow with wheat ... Yes weeds but what God is really saying is there is a chance for everyone to repent. Don't ever, ever forget. By the way, remember the real God hates the death of a sinner. Let those with ears hear and those with eyes see.

Don't treat Kunonga like a devil.After all he was against homosexuality.
