Gnomic Interview

So these medical students recently caught up with me and did a fun interview. Hope it’s as much a fun read for you as it was hanging out with them! I pray they catch God’s heart for calling them and become missional medics!     Read here, from page 40.

Prayer by an Unknown Confederate Soldier

Posted by on Aug 14, 2020 in Faith, Family, Personal Leadership | No Comments

The pray-er of this now-famous prayer might be unknown; but the truth of its content, many of us must be quite familiar with. At least I know I am.   “I asked God for strength, that I might achieve, I was made weak, that I might learn humbly to obey. I asked for health, that […]

COVIDic Times: My Addiction to D.V.

Those who know me well will tell you I have an addiction to D.V.; no, not T.V., D.V. And it’s the smartest ones who ask me, sometimes after an unsatisfactory Googling spree: “what does ‘DV’ mean?” Let me spill the beans today.   Today is not as I had planned it. Some six months ago, […]

Another Ordinary Black Man Downed by a Superior White Policeman: Is there not a root cause?

Mad I am. Have you seen the videos of the broad daylight murder of yet another unarmed Black man, George Floyd, by yet another White police officer, this time in Minneapolis? The officer literally knelt on the poor man’s neck till he died. I’m in the middle of a transformative ‘Emotionally Healthy Spirituality’ course with […]

Why Being an ‘African Christian’ isn’t an Oxymoron.

A friend and old school mate asked an ‘innocent question’ on Face Book: “Why is African Traditional Religion confused with wizardry or witchcraft?” Some of the responses I saw got my missiological juices going! My grandfather, who was so well-eulogized in The New York Times when he passed away last year (March 2019), was so […]

Lead Different.

There are many commonalities between leadership in general and Christian leadership in particular. There are stark, even diametrically opposed, differences too. The primary source of power to influence is one of them; and it is everything!     My heart skipped a beat. Jerry, who has enough of Christian leadership nonsense of late, was passionately […]

COVIDicTimes~Vaccine Found: Hope!

Often we’re quick to run to faith, which is “confidence in what we hope for,” but hope in and of itself is pretty powerful; especially in a crisis of the sort we’re stewing in, a pandemic pot.   Hope is a powerful thing. I remember walking through bookstore after bookstore in New York City, scrambling. […]

It’s Mothers’ Day; not Women’s Day. Come on!

No! Today isn’t Women’s Day; that’s a different date. It is Mothers’ Day. Not every woman is a mother but every woman can, and should, be.     So everything should somehow work okay for everyone all at once so that in the end nothing means anything to anyone anymore? Political correctness will kill us […]

COVIDicTimes: Memories from Prison.

By Sofia Lopez It’s amazing what quarantines and lockdowns in these times have done. Our mental health is at stake as we live imprisoned behind the walls of our homes. Memories are rife too, good and bad, for good or ill.     A true story I want to share with you… Stepping into the […]

COVIDic Times: We really don’t like children that much! | Part 3/3

This final instalment is for those who agree that childbearing and childrearing is hard but worth it, especially in the light of the mission of God. Imagine what earthly contributions of eternal ramifications one could make with a 200-year family vision.     Children are many things we don’t like but they can be real […]
