This month we’ve been going through a series at Mavuno called ‘Haters No More’. We’re learning that it’s time to stop hating on our country and our leaders every time we speak because by doing so, we cut ourselves down. Instead God is giving us a counter-cultural call to be people of honor, not because of who leads us but because of who He is. We also learnt that honor goes beyond mere words to positive action. You can see summaries of the series and people’s responses here.
So… last weekend, a large # of people across the different Mavuno churches committed to take part in a 30-day ‘HatersNoMore’ challenge. For the next 30 days (Nov 21st – Dec 21st), we will commit to positively honor those who God has appointed to be leaders over us… whether national, civic, spiritual, social or at home. We will look for opportunities every day to either pray for, affirm or bless someone in leadership over us.
Some great stories came in yesterday, which was Day #1. On the mavuno blog, Muthoni committed to make amends with her mom, who she hasn’t spoken to in over a year, ‘because i wouldn’t want to be in the same position as a mother of a 19 year old daughter myself’. On my FB wall, Charity confessed she has surprised herself by saying something nice about the Nairobi City Council! On twitter (#HatersNoMore), RookieKe made a call that was overdue by 10 years! It lasted only 1.20min but it was a start. Kevansweli made up with his dad. Mes Teiy committed to ask the local councilor and police how to pray for them. The revolution begins!
