As the Anglican Communion world over marked the Mothers' Sunday, Vice-President of Egbu Archdeaconry, Lay Reader Treasurer Amadi has charged mothers to build and sustain their homes as godly mothers.


The wife of the Archdeacon of Egbu Archdeaconry in the Diocese of Egbu, Mrs. Amadi, gave the charge in her homily during the Mothers' Sunday celebration at the Cathedral Church of All Saints Egbu, in Owerri North LGA, Imo State. Taking her text from 2 Timothy 1 verses 1-5, in a sermon aptly titled "Influence and positive roles of Godly Mothers", she noted that the sincere faith of Timothy was bequeathed to him through the influence of both the mother Eunice and grandmother Lious. She noted that the faith of Timothy which was first noticed at a very tender age, was influenced early enough by the mothers.
Lay Reader Amadi pointed out that his conversion by Paul was made easy owing to this strong foundation, having been brought to the knowledge of the gospel from the griddle. She explained that Godly mothers with sincere faith were not only contagious but were vessels of positive influence on their children. The Vice President urged mothers to hold tenaciously the responsibilities of keeping the home, and raising their Children in the fear of the Lord while maintaining that unique qualities for which the family were known. She regretted that some new generation mothers don't encourage their children in the study of the gospel, caring less in their upbringing.
She also noted that some of them were recalcitrant so much that they look down on their husbands and have divided their home into two. Mrs. Amadi cautioned mothers against abandoning their husbands and families for politics as the 2019 General elections gather momentum, while advising them to eschew immorality and being drunk as they would obviously not be able to influence their generation positively. She gave a rundown of mothers who influenced the society to include Jochbed, Moses mother and Hannah, mother of Samuel.
