CHURCH 

Pastor Wilson Bugembe, on Saturday, as he has always done on his birthday (August 8), served hundreds of former street children, the vulnerable families and individuals with food.

Working with his Protocol team at Church, Bugembe who is the Senior Pastor at the Worship House in Nansana; gave out rice, maize flour, soap and sugar to vulnerable children and adults.

In his message, to the people, he asked them to learn discerning the Lord's voice, amidst the current hard times we are.

"Learn to listen to the Lord and also be able to discern when He speaks. It is one thing to pray, but it is another to hear the voice of the Lord. Avoid doing the wrong thing, yet the Lord God is speaking to you," he preached.

He asked whoever loves him and would love to give him a gift to kindly pass it on to someone needy.

"This blesses me more and kindly also do it, for the glory of God."

Who is a Good Samaritan?

The parable of the Good Samaritan is a parable told by Jesus in the Gospel of Luke. It is about a traveller who is stripped of clothing, beaten, and left half dead alongside the road.

First, a priest and then a Levite comes by, but both avoid the man. Finally, a Samaritan happens upon the traveller. Samaritans and Jews despised each other, but the Samaritan helps the injured man.

Jesus is described as telling the parable in response to the question from a lawyer, "And who is my neighbour?".

In response, Jesus tells the parable, the conclusion of which is that the neighbour figure in the parable is the man who shows mercy to the injured man—that is, the
Samaritan.

Some Christians, such as Augustine, have interpreted the parable allegorically, with the Samaritan representing Jesus Christ, who saves the sinful soul.

Others, however, discount this allegory as unrelated to the parable's original meaning and see the parable as exemplifying the ethics of Jesus.

The parable has inspired painting, sculpture, satire, poetry, photography, and film and Pr. Bugembe helping of the needy on his birthday every year.

The phrase "Good Samaritan", meaning someone who helps a stranger, derives from this parable, and many hospitals and charitable organizations are named after the Good Samaritan.
