Uncomfortably Different

I watched a movie titled #TheAccountant in which the father of an autistic child told him the he is different and that more or less, with time, people would become terrified with someone different. The saying is true… What is also true is that being uncommonly different seems intolerable to most people these days…soon they…

Evasive Peace

For most people, knowing what to say is a really difficult thing. This does not in anyway present quiet people, who hardly express themselves. Instead, speaking the appropriate word for every situation remains the real challenge . . . It is why wordsmithing is not a task for persons with weak understanding. However, the real…

Assessment of Things

I got a story sent to me today. When I finished reading it, I realised that beautiful things would always have another side to it. While something looks fantastic to some, it would look deplorable and less in value to some, especially those who had the privilege of experiencing a greater version of it elsewhere…

Modest Matrimony

I was privileged to attend a marriage ceremony yesterday, at Legon Interdenominational Church, University of Ghana. It was such an eye-opening event for me. 1.

Choosing those you call a friend is a very delicate matter. It is no news that most people loosely…

The Matter with Zion

The argument on the state of the church is really not much to debate. Those who understand the times would know that whatever is happening now has been long coming. Somehow, we have tasted the pleasures of the city and the consecration that the mountain of the LORD’s house requires has become too lofty for…

Hope Conference 2018

WHAT DO YOU EXPECT? What do you expect from God, the Church, the Nation and other People? Expectations, they say, are the root-causes of disappointment. Should we then go about in life without expectations? Life, by design, is meant to be defined by expectation, around which everyone’s hope is hinged. Still, we need to define…

'Aaro' 

In ancient traditional African kingdoms, farmers and fathers were faced with enormous responsibility of feeding their households, which were larger then than now, and providing for other needs.  Then, their primary work was agriculture.
