    Day 17: Following God into the Future #28DayChallenge

    The future: that imaginary place where all our problems are solved and our dreams are fulfilled. The younger we are, the more excited we are about the future. It holds so much promise and possibility that we can barely wait to get there. We make plans and write lists and take steps to get to […]

  • Day 16: Wars, Media & Media Wars #28DayChallenge

    Day 16: Wars, Media & Media Wars #28DayChallenge

    I have been thinking a lot about the ongoing Russia-Ukraine conflict, why it’s getting so much attention, what kind of attention it’s getting, and who’s saying what about it. It is safe to say the media played a major role in the build-up to this conflict, and continues to do so with all kinds of […]

  • Day 15: Consistency – the key to Excellence #28DayChallenge

    Day 15: Consistency – the key to Excellence #28DayChallenge

    Today’s title speak for itself. In my 30+ years of existence, including several years of academic and professional excellence, I have come to learn that perhaps the single most important element in developing an attitude of excellence is consistency in doing the right things – showing up and committing to actions that produce results. Excellence […]

  • Day 14: Stand Tall #28DayChallenge

    Day 14: Stand Tall #28DayChallenge

    Seven years stood tall Though short to be reckoned with In the final scheme of things Yet the impact of those years Reverberated into eternity Gentle voices called out Echoing loudly in the darkness Their message was clear: “Bring home your honor Even if you lose everything else” So you stood like a warrior Fought […]

  • Day 13: Friday, Good? #28DayChallenge

    Day 13: Friday, Good? #28DayChallenge

    Good Friday. Was it really good? Definitely not for Jesus or his followers, whose long-awaited Messiah was crucified by the authorities. A little search on the internet suggested that the origin of the word “Good” is an old English word which means “Holy”. If this is correct, then it would be more appropriate to think […]

  • Day 12: Judas, Betrayer #28DayChallenge

    Day 12: Judas, Betrayer #28DayChallenge

    Thanks for joining me today again. As we come upon Easter, it feels fitting for me to reflect on some of the themes around the death and crucifixion of Jesus. I would like to zoom in on a character that has received extended treatment and analysis over the centuries: Judas. Judas’ role in the arrest […]

  • Day 11: Faith, Unfeigned #28DayChallenge

    Day 11: Faith, Unfeigned #28DayChallenge

    Today, I want to share a few thoughts on faith, particularly in connection with the adjective “unfeigned” as used in the King James Version of the Bible. If you use more modern versions such as the NKJV or NIV, the word will likely be rendered “sincere” or “genuine”. In the first chapters of both his […]

  • Day 10: Celebrity, Unpacked #28DayChallenge

    Day 10: Celebrity, Unpacked #28DayChallenge

    When I was a child, I wanted to be famous and popular. I was never quite sure of what I’d be known for. But I wanted to be well-known and much loved and highly respected by many people. Although that desire is not something I now pay attention to, I do not trust that it […]

  • Day 9: Coffee, Black #28DayChallenge

    Day 9: Coffee, Black #28DayChallenge

    Ten years ago, I was an alien to the world of coffee. Although I knew people who regularly consumed it, my understanding of its value revolved around its use as a stimulant, particularly for people who wanted to stay awake for some reason. This was its primary use for many of my friends and classmates […]

    Today is Day 8 of my 28-day blogging challenge, and it’s Palm Sunday. Happy Palm Sunday! It’s a beautiful day to be alive as we celebrate the Triumphant Entry in 2022. There are few days in history that hold a lasting significance as does this special day, celebrated by Christians all over the world. It […]
