NATIONAL CATHEDRAL: Vulgar or Virtuous Venture?

Posted by on Aug 31, 2018 in Existentialism, Faith, Leadership, News, Politics | One Comment

  My Unwholly Holy Initial Thoughts, Honest-to-God ‘To build or not to build?’ is more often than not a rather profound, mind-wracking, heart-churning, soul-searching question, be it for a young couple or a growing congregation, a thriving corporation or even an emerging country! My initial reaction to the notion of building a national cathedral in […]

Caught in a Cross-Fire of Love

Posted by on Jan 18, 2018 in Existentialism, Faith, Personal Leadership | One Comment

I seldom share my personal written prayers in public. But as the LORD mercifully answers this one may it be your reality too. Dear Love, So where did I get the idea that I am somehow an originator of love when you are not only the pioneer, picture and perfector of love, you are Love itself; […]

You don’t know You if you don’t know God—and vice versa.

With all due respect, we are fooling ourselves if we think we can know ourselves without knowing God or know God without knowing ourselves. You can’t have one without the other. Here’s why.   “MAN, KNOW THYSELF” We shall not even begin to delve into the convoluted Egyptian and Greek history that tries to explain the […]

A Daniel Dare for the New Year

With another new year comes another fresh challenge of fasting and prayer for 21 days—just like Daniel did.   HARD TO BEAT Make no mistake. Every excuse you may have not to fast and pray, Daniel had same and more. He was super smart, highly intellectual and well-trained—from Alchemy to Zoology (Daniel 1). He aced […]

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, […]

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 […]

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 […]

WHEN LIFE DOESN’T MAKE SENSE!

In a world replete with success philosophy and prosperity preachers, how does one make sense of life when tragedy hits and one has no mental framework or faith construct to deal? Man! February 2017 was one nasty month—humanly speaking. Tragedy upon tragedy. Within a week a friend and co-worker gets a stroke in Canada, a […]
