I know, it’s been a while since I was in these parts! Life’s finally beginning to settle back to normal, for which I am grateful.
Once every four years, I get excited about football. Or soccer as the Americans like to call it. I know, it’s all so commercialized and no one plays for the love like in the good old days. But there’s still something electrifying about the whole world (except Kenya of course) competing for one trophy. Nothing compares to it – not even the Olympics! I’ve got the fever already and even though I’m not dundaring to SA, I’m looking forward to some soccer heaven soon courtesy of my TV. Please don’t call me for a meeting when an African team (including Brazil) is on the pitch!
Meanwhile back on earth, the draft constitution, aka the Wako draft finally got published. If for some reason you haven’t had it emailed to you already (which should worry you somewhat as it must be the most emailed document in our nation’s history), you can find it on the Mavuno website. Also a copy of the response to it by the Catholic Church, which spells out the contentious issues raised by the churches. Pastor Kyama did a piece about this whole conversation on his blog, which you can read here. Assuming you are one of the 10 million with a voters card!
This month at Mavuno, I’m teaching through the first part of the book of Daniel in a series called ‘Playing To Win’. It’s about how Christians can be successful in the marketplace. Daniel’s a great book about how to thrive in a hostile marketplace environment. I’m going to be meditating on a few verses daily throughout the coming season and want to invite you to join me. The idea is to set aside at least 20 minutes every day, pray for divine wisdom, read the few verses and then ask God to show you how He wants you to apply them at your workplace that day. And if you get a moment that day, share what you heard with others on this blog.
If you’re game, here are the readings for next week…
MON: 1: 1-2
TUE: 1: 3-5
THU: 1: 7-14
So that’s what’s up!
