Back in Business

So its been two and a half months since I last posted in this blog. You can call it a busy schedule for me, with work, projects and post grad. studies OCCUPYING my space. Am back. Not with a bang. But with new things I have learnt. I will sharing a bit on the book of Jeremiah, with its powerful metaphors that God uses to express His displeasure towards sin. Its a serious book. I’m studying it for the first time after all these years. Anyway, there’s a time for everything. God bless and take care til next time when I’ll touch on Jeremiah chapter 1.

2012 Scripture Theme

Psalm 121

A song of ascents

1 I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
where does my help come from?
2 My help comes from the LORD,
the Maker of heaven and earth.

3 He will not let your foot slip—
he who watches over you will not slumber;
4 indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.

5 The LORD watches over you—
the LORD is your shade at your right hand;
6 the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.

7 The LORD will keep you from all harm—
he will watch over your life;
8 the LORD will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.

EPIC ENDING!

I love movies, that is, good ones. That’s why you’ll find me sometimes using them as examples in my blog posts. Good movies mostly have lessons that can be drawn from. Unfortunately, there is a friend of mine who doesn’t like movies but enjoys animation. So I guess come 2012 I will try to convince her that movies are enjoyable. Unajijua 😉

Anyway, the year is coming to a close in less than 24 hours and I’m sure most of us are reviewing what our lives have been like in the past one year. As usual, there have been ups and downs, struggles and achievements, births and deaths, joy and sadness; but at the end of the day we come to Read More

The Christmas Genealogy

This is part of a series of posts under the Sunday Breakfast category. In these posts I share what I learn in church every Sunday; Bible messages that really ministered to me on a particular Sunday. All Bible references


Today’s topic was ‘The Christmas Lesson’.

Mathew 1:1-17 goes like this:

This is the genealogy of Jesus the Messiah the son of David, the son of Abraham:
2 Abraham was the father of Isaac,
Isaac the father of Jacob,
Jacob the father of Judah and his brothers,
3 Judah the father of Perez and Zerah, whose mother was Tamar,
Perez the father of Hezron,
Hezron the father of Ram,
4 Ram the father of Amminadab,
Amminadab the father of Nahshon,
Nahshon the father of Salmon,
5 Salmon the father of Boaz, whose mother was Rahab,

And so forth. Have you ever wondered why the book of Mathew starts off like this? Why this long list is there in the first place? I always skip this part of the book of Mathew; a lot of names, some long, some difficult to pronounce (Ouch! My head and tongue hurts).
Before the sermon starts, there’s Read More

The Fit, The Misfit and the Shapeshifter

There are two kinds of people in this world my friend; those with the rope around the neck and the people who have the job of doing the cutting. I run the risks – Tuco (The Good, The Bad and The Ugly).

A quote I got from the movie “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly” (1966), a 3 hour (approximately) western/cowboy classic film. Humour, action and emotional drama all in one package; they don’t make movies like they used to, I think. The film is about three individuals hunting for gold coins buried in some graveyard during the American Civil war; the good guy, the bad guy and the ugly guy. The above quote is from the ugly guy called Tuco. He’s the funniest of all the characters. This guy will definitely leave you in stitches. He is a wanted man but he makes an

Are they really necessary?

“I’m a protestant, I’m AIC, I’m PCEA, I’m Catholic, I’m Baptist……………………….etc or these guys are like this and that…No!…they do this and that………..”

And the conversation goes on and on when new people meet each other especially when talk of religion comes up or which church they go to. The whole idea of denominations within the church has always baffled me because in the scriptures Christianity began as one body……but with time and the influence of culture and human laws we find it being fragmented into many pieces which I believe has also resulted in the outgrowth of cults.

My understanding is that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is simple in terms of the message(salvation of man kind and reconciliation to God); the Gospel is simple once understood and accepted (through faith). And to find out if I was the only with the thought that denominations are unnecessary in Christianity, I posted two questions in Read More

Going Digital: Teaching Teachers

One of the Conference Sessions

My main focus was teaching them on how the internet can be used to positively impact their students.

I had two seminar tracks, Sunday and Monday, so I spent the first two days getting to Read More
