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 […]

There is a huge intersection between leadership principles in the corporate world and the church. But the former has its limits.

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 […]

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 […]

CONFESSIONS OF THE CALLED (#1): “Honey, I Think we Overdid it”

Of course ‘everyone’ wants to know, “why on earth am I here?” Why else would authors sell a tonne of books on that! But as I discover more about this valid existential question, some of my strong views and approaches to the whole issue of purpose/calling are being challenged and changed. This is a series […]

Who are these Muslim ambassadors extraordinaire?

Posted by on Jan 26, 2017 in Faith, Leadership, Politics | No Comments

Life seems simpler when we can stereotype and put people and things in a box. But when your mental caricature is challenged by hitherto unknown facts or up close and personal encounters you had better shift your paradigm.

Anybody who knows me well will tell you that the use of such a vulgar slang like “shitty” is uncharacteristic of me. This week many joined Americans to celebrate Martin Luther King Jnr. Day. While great progress has been made regarding race relations in North America we still have a long way to go. Some white officer just showed me […]

How to Start the New Year Right

What Trumps Trump’s Win!

Posted by on Nov 9, 2016 in Faith, Leadership, Politics | 3 Comments

What is more disappointing than a Trump win is the trumpeting of “functional atheists” following the declaration of the winner of the U.S. general election. I slept early this morning and woke up later this morning, thanks to my earnest following of the November 8 U.S. Presidential election results. I remember having the privilege of walking around […]
