Sharing 8 + Imoteda's Blogpost

The Weak and the Strong

 1 Accept the one whose faith is weak, without quarreling over disputable matters. 2 One person’s faith allows them to eat anything, but another, whose faith is weak, eats only vegetables. 3 The one who eats everything must not treat with contempt the one who does not, and the one who does not eat everything must not judge the one who does, for God has accepted them.
 4 Who are you to judge someone else’s servant? To their own master, servants stand or fall. And they will stand, for the Lord is able to make them stand.
 5 One person considers one day more sacred than another; another considers every day alike. Each of them should be fully convinced in their own mind. 6 Whoever regards one day as special does so to the Lord. Whoever eats meat does so to the Lord, for they give thanks to God; and whoever abstains does so to the Lord and gives thanks to God. 7 For none of us lives for ourselves alone, and none of us dies for ourselves alone. 8 If we live, we live for the Lord; and if we die, we die for the Lord. So, whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord. 9For this very reason, Christ died and returned to life so that he might be the Lord of both the dead and the living.
 10 You, then, why do you judge your brother or sister[a]? Or why do you treat them with contempt? For we will all stand before God’s judgment seat. 11 It is written:
   “‘As surely as I live,’ says the Lord,
‘every knee will bow before me;
   every tongue will acknowledge God.’”[b]
 12 So then, each of us will give an account of ourselves to God.

Also, check out Imoteda's blogpost on the ABSU gang rape victim. She is pulling together a petition. God is not going to come down and divine out justice, that's why He put governments in place and rules, to keep order in society. And if we see that order being abused, it is up to us to speak up when wrong is being done. 
Sign the petition!

An update of some sorts - vlog 1!

Celtic Prayer of Iona: 
I arise today!
Through a mighty strength:
God's power to guide me, God's might to uphold me,
God's eyes to watch over me;
Gd's ear to hear me, God's word to give me speech,
God's hand to guard me, God's way to lie before me,
God's shield to shelter me, God's hand to secure me.

In Remembrance - 09.11.2001.

Sept 11, 2001 - Kano, Nigeria.
I remember walking into a bank with my dad and watched in horror as the reports came through on the television in there. I recall a look of daze on people's faces... I don't think most of us were processing the magnitude and implications of what had happened.

Ten years later - May their souls rest in peace... and I pray that the families of those who lost their loved ones continue to heal and move on in peace.

Do you remember where you were that fateful day, ten years ago? And what were you doing when you heard the news?

on Time

Time is moving so fast.
I for one want to slow it down,
and dance along its shores.
Stretch it out like an elastic piece of rubber and
look at it's infinitesimal atoms in slow motion...
femtosecond fractions of time...
replay each minutest moment
and relive it like it were the present.

Time is slipping so fast.
