So i hope your week was off to a good start? I am snowed-in 3 feet of snow expected over a 30 hour period. Guess who’s stuck in the North East? You got that right – 2 days out of my 2 weeks and i am stuck indoors. I guess i will save money. Shior, on a positive note, that means i can finish my 2 courses on open 2 study. Finished one today already, will finish the other tomorrow before i cross the pond back to London town at the end of the week.
Onto the main gist, what has me confused? I believe i witnessed the most distasteful sermon ever in my adult existence. Went to my brother’s mother in law’s church for my nephew’s dedication. Its a typical carribean church in Brooklyn, New York. They had a visiting preacher from Zambia, the guy went on about sowing seeds as it was the way to tap into God’s blessing in your life etc. Anyways why did this man turn around and ask for them to collect 3 offerings? The first was the alleged seed- which he would pray over and we would be sowing into his life?
I am confused isnt sowing a seed supposed to be in the direction your heart dictates? Its like me i know the seeds i plan to sow and i am still looking for ways around it. But no one can dictate to you how to sow a seed. God directs your heart. The guy as far as i was concerned came to pimp God that day.
The next issue i had was with a pastor praying for one of the babies to be dedicated, this dude said may she not be a pervert or a drug abuser. Whatever happened to simply praying for the child’s life to be a reflection of God’s love and his will? I dont know if its old age worrying me, or just me being Anglican and attempting to convert to Catholicism, it is well.
Have you ever been to a “house of God” and left more confused than when you walked in?
For those in Nigeria, how is election fever? I read Soludo’s article today and he has made the most sense of everything going on. I dont post such on my site, but its food for thought. I dont even want to imagine how bad things are going to get in the upcoming months in Nigeria. It makes me angry.
I have an addiction -kitchen scramble – its free, you just gotta wait for your groceries to load. It keeps me calm. Lol.
I am reopening the www.tripican.com giveaway for N3,000 as i emailed the winner and didnt get a response back.
