8 ways to Knowing God’s Will For Your life

  So, then, how can we know God’s plan for our lives? Over the past years that I have been in ministry, I have discovered eight vital keys to knowing God’s will and plan for your life.

Christmas invites us to be at home with Jesus

Jesus did not come because things were right. He came because things had gone wrong—so wrong that they demanded the Creator’s intervention, says EDWARD BURI in this Christmas 2017 reflection. The coming of Christ is not the coming of a visitor. “Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.” (Jn. 1:3).   The coming of Christ into the world is an entry of its Maker and Owner. In a world where human beings invest in marking territories, the entry of the Owner makes…

Lessons from the Supreme Court’s back-to-polls order

Court’s back-to-polls order Kenya is in the global limelight. For the first time in the country’s history, and, indeed, in the entire African continent, the apex court has nullified an incumbent president’s election and ordered fresh elections within 60 days.

On this Tuesday afternoon, however, it’s a congenial Gatu congratulating us for keeping time. “We have a practice in this country that time is not of any use. If you tell somebody, ‘Come at 2 o’clock’, he comes at 3.…

When Kenyan clergy toed the ruling party’s line

The Church derives its political mandate from Jesus’ inaugural speech that states: “The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor… proclaim freedom for the prisoners, and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed… (Luke 4:18).” fish and farm, the thirsty how to store water and connect water pipes and the naked how to sew clothes. The Early Church did not allow its narrative of individual salvation to cloud Jesus’ broad political agenda of making God’s…
