Kajo-Keji Bishop urged to serve

By Charles K. Mark

A new Bishop of Kejo-Keji diocese has been urged to step out of his comfort zone to serve the people.

Archbishop of the Central Equatoria Internal Province of the Episcopal Church of South Sudan (ECSS), Paul Pitia Yugusuk made the urge during the enthronement of Bishop Rt. Rev. Dr. Lule James Kenyi.

Archbishop Pitia recounted as example, a story of King David, who refused to identify himself as king but as a servant of God.

“As you have been enthroned today, humble yourself. Put down all your certificates, whether they are called Doctorate, or what; Serve the people,” Pitia advised.

He handed the new bishop a bag carrying four historical stones, one of which was allegedly used by King David to hit Goliath.

The archbishop explained that these stones represent humility, prayer, service, and obedience, which he believes is better than sacrifice.

The enthronement at Emmanuel Cathedral-Romogi was also added by the governor of Central Equatoria State, Emanuel Adil Anthony.

Governor Adil urged the faithful to work with the fourth Diocesan Bishop of Kajo-Keji, Dr. Lule, to enhance peace, unity and encourage the voluntary return of refugees to their homes to rebuild their lives.

For his part, Dr. Lule James Kenyi pledged to use media to strengthen evangelism, education, and international relations, and to make the Church in Kajo Keji an attractive place of worship for the people of God and the county at large to renew their relationship with God.

The new bishop replaces late Bishop Emmanuel Murye Modi, who died in Nairobi in December 2022 after a suspected stroke attack.
