The President was on Saturday attending the Scripture Union Golden Jubilee celebrations that was held at Kololo Independence ceremonial grounds in Kampala.

Mr. Museveni noted that as Christians, they have a responsibility of contributing to God’s mission of “dominating and subduing nature,” saying this part has been neglected by majority Africans.

He stressed that this requires them to tame and have control over such natural phenomena like floods, diseases, producing enough food and harnessing nature for the betterment of man to the glory of God.

He also called on the members, especially the young ones, to fear their Creator. He noted that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.


Museveni called on the young generation to desist from worldly temptations and reminded them of the saying that everything has its own time. He strongly advised them to concentrate on their school studies first and wait for the right time to establish families.

The President commended Mr. Albert Taylor, founder of the Scripture Union, along with others who contributed to the movement of Scripture Union in Uganda in particular and Africa generally.

Bishop Joshua Lwere, who is the general overseer of the National Fellowship of Born Again Churches in Uganda, said that the Scripture Union has helped the young people in the country to cherish and cultivate Godly values, shape their character and have a broader way of life that empowers them to face the world with fewer challenges.

Scripture Union was begun in Uganda by individuals distributing Scripture Union cards in various vernacular dialects.
