Bishop counsels on unity, tasks clerics on commitment to duty

THE Diocesan Bishop of the Anglican Diocese of the Trinity, United States, Right Reverend Amos Fagbamiye, has called on Christians to rededicate themselves to the task of unity.

He also called on clerics to be committed to the work of spreading the gospel, an action which he said would ensure that their good works would speak for them long after they had gone.

Bishop Fagbamiye stated this in his sermon at the valedictory service for Bishop Samson Olusegun Adekunle and his wife, Marian, of Ile-Oluji Diocese, held at The Cathedral of St. Peter, Ile-Oluji, Ondo State, last week.

According to Fagbamiye, “there is time for everything. However, whatever the case, we must all come together for the growth of the diocese and for the church in general.”

The event, which also featured the launch of a book in honour of Bishop Adekunle, witnessed the presence of bishops within and beyond Nigeria.

In his review of the book, Venerable Olufemi Oyawale extolled the qualities of Bishop Adekunle, stating that his life was a testimony to other clerics and should serve as example for others to follow.

Also present at the event were Bishops J.O. Akinbiyi; James Popoola; Nathaniel Ogundipe; Samuel Ogundeji; S.O. Borokini; Williams Aladekugbe; Joseph Olusola; Isaac Olubowale; Isaac Oluiyanu; Michael Oluwarohunbi; James Odedeji; J.A. Ajetunmobi; Samuel Egbebunmi; Abel Ajibudu; Akin Atere, among others.
