Continue Building Community Resilience, UCC Urges NCCK

Rev Dr Carmen Lansdowne, the 44th Moderator of the United Church of Canada, has commended the NCCK for efforts to build the resilience of the people in different areas of life. The empowered citizens, Moderator Carmen averred, will “take up their sovereign power and make decisions on matters that affect their lives”.

Rev Dr Carmen was speaking during a consultative forum with Kenyan-based partners of UCC that was hosted by Rev Canon Chris Kinyanjui, the General Secretary of the NCCK.

Accompanied by Rev Dr Japhet Ndhlovu, the UCC Moderator is in Kenya as part of a tour to meet with UCC partners in different countries.

“Training people to engage on political discussions will dispel the illusion that only those who hold leadership positions in the church can engage government and civil authorities”, Rev Dr Carmen pointed out.

The Moderator especially commended the Nature Based programme that NCCK is implementing with support from Canada, noting that it will enhance food security and mitigation of impact of climate change.

Rev Canon Chris appreciated the longstanding partnership between the NCCK and UCC, indicating that it has resulted in the transformation of many lives. He and Moderator Carmen agreed to consider initiating a learning exchange programme for theological students between Kenyan and Canadian universities.

Other UCC partners present in the meeting were Organisation of African Instituted Churches (OAIC), Programme for Christian Muslim Relations in Africa (PROCMURA), and Kenya Alliance for Advancement of Children Rights (KAACR).
