About John Kaoma

(Father John Kaoma maintains a blog with his poems and his reflections at fatherjohnkaoma.blogspot.com).

I remember asking those who sought to share the gospel of Christ with me, “Who created God?” For those believed in the “Big Bang” theory, I had a similar question, “Where did the first gases that caused the big bang come from?” I did not consider myself an atheist neither did I consider myself a Christian until I personally met Jesus Christ. Today, I join millions of Christians in singing Edward Mote’s hymn:

“My Hope is based on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly trust in Jesus’ Name.
On Christ the solid rock I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand.
All other ground is sinking sand.

Indeed, “all other ground is sinking sand” for those who seek to know and be known by Christ. I am humbled that Christ called me to serve him as a minister in his Holy Church. My strength comes from his blood and righteousness and from the prayers of my beloved wife Phie, our three lovely daughters, Dorothy, Nattie and Nandi, and all the faithful of Christ Church/ISJ.
