Celebrating OLUWAMuyiwa

Several years ago a young man walked into my home and told me he would like to come and be working with me . . . I was not so keen about hiring anyone. So, I told him I do not have a vacancy. Instead of leaving, he insisted he would be coming to work…

What is Really at Stake?

What is really at stake when a generation loses connection with their progenitors? 1. Whatsoever is admirable about the older generation would become almost invisible or of little value in less than 10 years. What was once a giant leap and accomplishment becomes reduced to a relic. Afterall, the life of any place is the…

DOMINION: A Case for a Different Philosophy of Education

Nigeria is on my mind . . . ; Africa too, by extension. In light of all the shortages in character-rich people, creative processes, and contemporary products, as well as power, fuel, gas, and the subsequent hardship and discomfort the people are subjected to, it seems we may have shortchanged ourselves in many ways. We…

TO RESILIENCE – Happy Birthday Okey Ogunjiofor Sir.

“lt’s working. . . It’s working.” This is typically how @okeyogunjiofor would respond, almost every time I had the privilege of meeting and sharing fellowship with him.

Skeptics and the Shifts

I was in church for the first time in a very long time since COVID happened. Evidently, so much is never going to be the same again. I know it is human to easily forget our traumas and return to life, like nothing really happened but it seems we are unaware that this particular trauma…

This Thing Called Mentoring . . .

Moses led (not mentored) Joshua, but Joshua didn’t start his ministry while Moses was alive…same for Elisha to Elijah…same for Disciples to Jesus Christ! None of them went to wake the dead for instructions…the same Holy Spirit that was on their leader was who came on them (for some in double portion). They did greater…

The Cares of Youthfulness

Youthfulness is the beginning of dreams and the end of innocence; yet, it is one of God’s uncommon blessings to humanity. It presents opportunities that can be matched with skills, values that are responses to problems and work that can be done because of the abundance of life’s primary resource – time. As beautiful and…

Streams of Engagement

You may have communion with the LORD in the company of other people, That will give you EDIFICATION; You will have encounter with the LORD in company of Angels, That will give you LIFE-DEFINING WONDERS; Ultimately it is the communion you will have with God alone that will shape THE FUTURE OF NATIONS. These three…
