Missionary of Reconciliation: The Role of the Doctrine of Reconciliation in the Preaching of Festo Kivengere of Uganda, 19711988nAlfred Olwa (Sydney, Australia)nnIn the period 19711988, the Christian doctrine of reconciliation was central to Festo Kivengeres preaching in Uganda and beyond. This doctrine so gripped Kivengere that it shaped his attitude to life, to others, and even to his enemies. He exhorted his audiences to be reconciled with God and then with their fellow human beings, as part of Gods remedy for a broken world. In his preaching, Kivengere depicts Jesus as a missionary of reconciliation who brings a fresh and alternative life, characterized by the reconciling love and peace from God. He preached the Christian doctrine of reconciliation into a Uganda where Christians lived under the horrors of Amins rule and its aftermath. According to Kivengere, the world changes through the preaching of the reconciliation centered in Jesus Christ.
