Clergy Stresses The Significance Of Remembrance, As Ikenne LG Boss Celebrates 50-Years Of Father's Transition

The significance of remembrance has been stressed by an Anglican Clergy and Vicar of the Anglican Church of Saint Luke, Iperu, Venerable Joseph AMADU.

He stated this while delivering a sermon at the holy communion thanksgiving service, held to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the transition of Late Pa Olatunji OGUNLEYE, father of the Executive Chairman, Ikenne Local Government, Hon. Olusegun OGUNLEYE.

Speaking from the scriptures, from the books of Mark chapter 14, verse 9, and Acts of the Apostles, chapter 9, verse 36; the officiating Priest talked about the need to always do good, as all the good deeds by any mortal shall always be acknowledged.

Speaking further, he described remembrance as a way of appreciating the good or bad deeds of individuals, either in death, or while alive.

He commended the children, for finding it worthy to remember their dad, who, according to him, must have laboured over them and gave all the necessary parenting required of a good father.

He enjoined all to believe in God and change from their sinful ways, as no one comes to God, without Jesus.
