CONFESSIONS OF THE CALLED (#5): Convocation at the Table of Vocation

  To be a stable entity one needs to get rid of a one-track mind that calling is just one thing and embrace at least four kinds of vocations, just like the legs of a four-legged table.   It was not until my university days that I clearly heard and understood that I had a […]

What’s in a name?

Sometimes one can’t help but wonder whether names of people in history were given to them after they lived the way they did (to capture the essence of their lives) or really before. Naming is important; names are prophetic. Nana Ahomka Nana Ahomka Asamoabea Perbi And a voice came from heaven: “You are my Son, […]

Emotionally Constipated

In medical school this wasn’t one of the diagnoses I was taught I could make but on the other side of the doctor’s desk, this may be an even more dire diagnosis than a clogged gut.     MAINLY MEN; BUT NOT ONLY Last Sunday, in a suburban church in Montreal, this was the summary […]

Leadership is Likadis Likadat

The idea of ‘leadership ellipse’ is perhaps the most striking leadership concept I’ve come across most recently. How in the world is one supposed to ‘balance’ the inner spiritual life and the outer demands of leadership and tame tensions like being in the world but not of it, faithfulness and fruitfulness, impact and profit, being […]

I DON’T CARE HOW GOOD YOU ARE (#2)~If you’re not a ‘walkie-talkie’

When “what people say, what people do, and what they say they do are entirely different things” (Margaret Mead) we’re in real trouble. On this Father’s Day, I want to honour the one person, of all the leaders I know in this world, who I can vouch for as walks his talk: my own father. […]

Uncommon Sense or Nonsense? This Trinity Thing

Posted by on Apr 20, 2017 in Existentialism, Faith, Personal Leadership | No Comments

On a recent flight from Halifax to Montreal, the Jehovah’s Witness in the seat next to mine couldn’t help but express near disgust at the concept of God as Trinity. “It just doesn’t make sense.” Wherever she is now, I hope she gets to read Johnson’s book. The author is spot on: it is true […]

Corporate Leadership and Cross Leadership are not Synonymous!

Posted by on Apr 8, 2017 in Ethics, Faith, Leadership | No Comments

There is a huge intersection between leadership principles in the corporate world and the church. But the former has its limits. It stops at the junction of the cross, if it isn’t willing to go that route of ‘cross leadership.’ Here’s how.   Note: the following write-up is adapted from an Integrative Paper of the […]

Life begins BEFORE 40, for sure!

On 16th March, 2017, I turned 39. I give thanks and praise to God! Yet barely 24 hours prior I was a little discouraged. No, not a midlife crisis 🙂 My disappointment came from discovering a negative CAD 4,839.01 hole in my ministry account. I’ll tell you why. THANK YOU FOR 38TH All thanks and praise […]

CONFESSIONS OF THE CALLED (#4) : Don’t try this alone!

Posted by on Mar 23, 2017 in Existentialism, Faith, Personal Leadership | No Comments

When it comes to calling/vision, I used to erroneously say things like, “Don’t listen to what other people have to say. After all, they weren’t there when God spoke to you.” How wrong I was. I repent.   “TO BE OR NOT TO BE?” As I celebrated my birthday last week somehow I found myself going […]

IN LOVE WITH ANOTHER WOMAN

Posted by on Mar 9, 2017 in Ethics, Existentialism, Faith, Family, Leadership | 3 Comments

What if it’s really NOT “a man’s world” as much as we think and neither is God a He?   This is the morning after. I woke up yestermorning in love another woman. And I didn’t even realise till much later after sunrise when both people and birds alike began to tweet that the day […]
