The Archbishop of the Church of Uganda (COU), Dr. Stephen Kaziimba Mugalu, delivered a message urging Ugandans to embrace peace within themselves and their families during the Christmas festival. Speaking at a Christmas Carols service held at the Vision Group headquarters in Kampala, Kaziimba emphasized the significance of having peace with God, oneself, and others, highlighting the belief that the savior born on Christmas is a “prince of peace.”

Kaziimba, the main celebrant at the event, reminded attendees that Christmas is a day of salvation, encouraging responsible celebrations and a spirit of love among people. He advised against succumbing to societal pressures, stating, “You do not have to follow everything; you will get pressure and go to heaven prematurely.”

The Archbishop urged Ugandans to live within their means and accept their conditions and situations gracefully. He emphasized the importance of maintaining inner peace, stating, “If you have peace within you, the rest of the people around you will also have peace.”

Addressing the festive gathering, Kaziimba advised against unnecessary conflicts, suggesting gratitude for life’s circumstances. He reassured, “If a man or woman disappoints you, just thank God for letting him or her go. The best is always ahead. You do not need to visit witchdoctors; God is the best witchdoctor.”
