Sir Lucky Worluh in his lecture at All Church Leaders Post Vestry Workshop of the Ikwerre Diocese of Anglican Communion at St. James Anglican Church, Elele District on Saturday 13th May 2023, took his text from the bible book of James 2:15-17.
If a brother or sister is poorly clothed & lacking in daily food and one of you says to them, “ Go in Peace, be warmed & filled without giving . but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? In the same way faith by itself, if not accompanied by actions for the Jewish people, providing and caring for the poor in need was fundamental for the living.
He stated that the Bible commands us to love God and love others. As James reminded his readers that true faith acts on behalf of the poor and oppressed, if all we do is to say. “Good luck” what is the true Religion according to the Book of James.
He further explained to the congregation on “A Church Leader” and “A Good Leader”
According to Sir Lucky Worluh, “A church leader needs to be a Godly leader, a role model, a guidance, giver not for your church members only but for everyone else in the community too. They mentor & encourage people, furthering their faith and ensuring that they have a positive church experience”
“A good leader seeks the Lord, commits his way to the Lord and the Lord establishes the next steps. The preparation of the heart belongs to man, but the answer of the tongue is from the Lord.” He stated.
He further revealed, “Leadership according to the scripture is servanthood (Mark 10: 42-45). The Bible also teaches, that legitimate leaders, have authority in the sense or a right to direct others. This authority, comes from God and is delegated to the leaders for the good of the church. ”
He admonished that a caring church should be interested to know how one another is doing, as well as keeping each other informed on good opportunities to better lives.
Lucky Worluh who emphasized on the need to forgive one another, do away with gossip, also encouraged clergy men and church leaders to concentrate more on improving on skills and other means of livelihood as a means of overcoming overbearing economic challenges and household needs
“Therefore, I will encourage us today to sincerely, religiously accept before the Almighty God, that we shall repent, love and care for our church, the clergies and their families. let the clergy also reciprocate by extending same love to their members and the community.” He concluded
True Blue Reporters was present and reports that the workshop which had all pastors in Ikwerre Diocese and all leaders in the diocese also featured a question and answer session as leaders of various church took time to vent on their experiences working in the vineyard, asked questions and got answers as solutions moving forward.
