MESSAGE OF THE AACC GENERAL SECRETARY FOR THE THANKSGIVING SERVICE ON SOUTH SUDAN

 

Your Graces, 

My Lord Bishops, 

Your Excellences, 

Honorable dignitaries, all protocols observed, 

Dear participants, 

Brothers and sisters in the Lord, 

It is a great pleasure and honour for AACC to be associated with the Thanksgiving Service held this day, 30th October 2018, in gratitude to God for how far he has taken our brothers and sisters from South Sudan.

As you may know, the AACC has been journeying with the people of Sudan and South Sudan through many phases of their journey in their search for peace. It got involved in the process leading to the signing of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement in 2005, the referendum for the self-determination of South Sudan in 2011, the coordination of ecumenical and humanitarian actors in the aftermath of the July 2015 crisis, the accompaniment in trauma healing for South Sudanese women, etc. 

Just like the other actors, we are rejoicing and thanking God for his mercy in bringing the top political leaders together for the signing of the Revitalised Agreement on the Resolution of the Conflict in the Republic of South Sudan (R-ARCSS) on 12 September 2018, in Khartoum, Sudan. 

The AACC is very much aware that the signing of an agreement at political level does not necessarily translate to development and prosperity for all the citizens. That is the reason why the AACC is hereby pledging its renewed commitment to continue journeying with the Church in South Sudan, through the South Sudan Council of Churches (SSCC), alongside other stakeholders. We are determined to continue supporting their action as a united front in their commitment to be agents of peace in South Sudan.

Brothers and sisters here present, we urge you to continue keeping the political and Church leadership in South Sudan in your prayers, for God to raise this country from ashes to beauty. 

This is our message to you and the people of South Sudan: “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit”. (Romans 15: 13)  

REV. DR. ANDRE KARAMAGA

MESSAGE OF SOLIDARITY AND GOODWILL TO THE PEOPLE OF SOUTH SUDAN AND AFRICA AT THE SIGNING OF THE REVITALIZED AGREEMENT ON THE RESOLUTION OF THE CONFLICT IN THE REPUBLIC OF SOUTH SUDAN (R-ARCSS)

 

October 28, 2018

           

          People of South Sudan, People of Africa, People of God!

 

On 12th September 2018,the Revitalized Agreement on the Resolution of the Conflict in the Republic of South Sudan (R-ARCSS) was signed byH.E President Salva Kiir and H.Dr.Riek Machar; SPLM-Former Detainees; South Sudan Opposition Alliance and Other Political Parties; the 17 Stakeholders and 6 Guarantor Heads of State and IGAD; the AU High Level Ad-hoc Committee on South Sudan and Africa and International Partners and Witnesses to the long-awaited culmination of years of dreaming, hoping, praying, negotiating and not a few false starts.

 

We commend all the parties for agreeing to sit at the negotiating table with the aim of bringing lasting peace to the nation. The implementation of the Revitalized Agreement to resolve the conflict should be pursued at all costs and with the right leadership; South Sudan can be great again.

 

As the great task of Nation Building starts, it will require hard work, selflessness, love and a focused, firmcommitment to the ideals of Ubuntu. The people of South Sudan must now rise up and steer their nation to their God given destiny guided by a common vision for the nation that they shall bequeath to the coming generations. As we continue to journey with and support you, we strongly urge all the people of South Sudan, both in the country and the diaspora, to invest in laying the right foundations for a peaceful and prosperous Nation -State.A deliberate effort to build trust and confidence in the process will require a deep sense of authenticity on everyone’s part.Additionally, each man, woman, boy and girl, starting with the leaders, needs to be fully persuaded that South Sudan’s boundaries contain an abundance that every citizen has the right to enjoy and steward. But without peace, this may never be realized.

 

Nation Building, Reconstruction, Healing and Reconciliation will need to take top priority so that those of our brothers and sister who were forced to flee can come back and find a safe space to contribute to the future of South Sudan.

 

As we mark this auspicious occasion surrounded by the great cloud of witnesses that is the individuals, neighbouring countries and the international community, let the people of South Sudan unite in their determination towards renewal. Without a commitment to instituting lasting peace, the generations of the future will judge the current one harshly.

 

“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God” Matthew 5:9
