My Gratitude

It is a new year and I am so proud of how God has been fathering me. I have seen the mercies of God; He has been so gracious to me. This is not a cliche, it is the reality I live in. The parable of the one who is more grateful and thankful applies…

A Letter to Young People: YOUR GIFTS

At dawn, you are bright and beautiful;So, as the dew falls on your bright green new leaves, I write you you.You indeed have a gift and it is a rare one:You are strong and free!

Quadriscore

At some point in life, all that matters is that we have been here and we have made significant contribution!

TO TRUTH – Happy Birthday, Pastor Tunde Bakare

“Sir, what are you telling her. . .?”That was the first statement he ever made to me. I was gisiting with a young lady in front of the Church’s bookshop on Akilo Way, when Pastor Tunde Bakare showed up behind me. He was doing his “management by walking around” as usual. I lost my voice…

DAY NINETEEN: Watchers and Gatekeepers

Arise to your posts, men and women of the cloth,Rise…

I am growing deeply fond of it because it seems to bring more clarity to pressing life matters we may not be giving deliberate  attention to at the moment. Yesterday was one of those conversations, and here is one  of them, I thought it may be…

Wholesome Education for Life

One consistent truth that has been ignored more often is this: we need to think the HOLISTIC DEVELOPMENT OF OUR CITIZENRY, not periodic interventions. It seems elders and leaders would rather establish errors/negligence as the the standard; legacies are priced over the future of nations. The future of nations is the sum of the futures…
