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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

CONFESSIONS OF THE CALLED (#3): One more reason why reversal is suicidal

Posted by on Mar 2, 2017 in Existentialism, Faith, Personal Leadership | 2 Comments

An immediate advantage I perceive in all of us clearly seeing and understanding that the first and most important, albeit general, call is to love God and people is how that takes away the pressure (and guilt too) that many of us feel to not only find God’s specific will for us, but even to […]
