THE Malaita Diocesan Bishop, Right Revered Michael Sau Bebeu has called for collaboration within the Diocese, saying it is the key to achieving its shared visions and goals.
Rt Rev Bebeu said he is ready to work together with all stakeholders within the church and with other sister churches in building the kingdom of Christ in Malaita.
He then reminded Christians to remain steadfast in their commitment to serving and glorifying God in all they do.
“Let us remain steadfast in our commitment to serving and glorifying God in all we do.
“As your 6th Diocesan Bishop, I humbly request that we all work together towards achieving our shared vision and goals.
“I pledge my commitment to work humbly and supportively with all the diocesan clergies, administrative staff and all Anglicans in this Diocese and all stakeholders to ensure our mission and goals are not diverted from the basis of our Faith in the Gospel of Jesus Christ and upholding the Christian traditions of the Church – the Anglican Church of Melanesia.
“Furthermore, I pledge to work collaboratively with the broader body of Christ with our sister denominations through ecumenical fellowship in building up His Kingdom in this province.
“Through serving together, we can positively impact the lives of those we serve,” Rt Rev Bebeu said.
“Collaboration brings diverse perspectives and ideas to the table and promotes a sense of communalism and belonging.
“We can create positive change that extends beyond our immediate reach by working together.
“Together, we can uphold the values and principles at the core of our faith and ensure that our efforts are focused on fulfilling our mission and goal to make the Diocese of Malaita grow spiritually and economically.”
“I humbly pray that the Diocese of Malaita, Province of Malaita, will be blessed through God’s grace and love,” he added.
“Christian brothers and sisters, this is the vision and strategic direction for our diocese.
“I look forward to bringing this vision with its strategies and area of priorities to our Diocesan Synod that will meet in a couple of months’ time for its review, discussion, approval and blessing.
“I wish to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to all of you who choose to witness this consecration.
“Thank you for gracing this occasion.
“Your presence speaks for your trust and expectations you have in me.
