Liberia: Lutheran Bishop Urges UL Graduates

The Bishop of the Lutheran Church in Liberia Rev. Dr. D. Jensen Seyenkulo has asked God to shower His blessing upon the thousands of graduates expected to walk out of the walls of the University of Liberia (UL).

With scripture reading taken from the book of Joshua, Rev. Seyenkulo thanked the Almighty God for his protection and mercy upon the graduates while they were going through those difficult times of study.

Serving as guest preacher at the Baccalaureate Service for the University of Liberia for the 93rd Commencement Convocation, Rev. Dr. Seyenkulo advised the graduates to acknowledge God in everything they do while seeking the job market because their success is measured by God's intervention.

Rev. Seyenkulo also wants the graduates to walk and talk with God who determines the way of life of every individual living in this world. He said the students have been blessed in order to bless his /her country.

The Lutheran Bishop encouraged the prospective graduates to forge ahead for more opportunities by keeping their heads up. Bishop Seyenkulo acknowledged that there will be obstacles along the way but those obstacles can only be defeated when God takes the center stage of their lives and plans.

"You didn't do it by yourself. Some of you would have fallen along the way either by sickness, financial and family issue. There were trials and tribulations throughout your study but you made it. It is time now that we count on you to help transform the society and leave a good footprint for others to follow," the Lutheran Bishop said.

For his part, the President of the University of Liberia Prof. Emmet A. Dennis lauded the graduates for the advancement made in their academic sojourn and referred to them as his "diamond". Dr. Dennis considered the graduating class as a lucky class because all the diplomas have been signed and ready for distribution on Wednesday, December 19, 2012.
