Organisations tend to go through a process called rebranding for various reasons. The decision is often based on changing the perception of their customers, especially where their products or services have been the subject of negative publicity. Some rebrand because they have been bought over by other organisations and the new owners have decided to change the branding in line with their own brand.Recently, the popular social media company, Facebook, announced that it had changed it’s company name to Meta. Although they gave reasons for this name change as a reflection of the company’s growing ambitions beyond social media, the fact that this decision was made following a series of negative stories based on documents leaked by an ex-employee has raised eyebrows.

I woke up this morning feeling really thankful to God for the many things He has done for me and my family.  It is so easy to allow the challenges of life and the problems that we face each day to forget that God has been and continues to be there for us like no one else can.The Bible is full of writings to remind us of God’s faithfulness, His love and His blessings towards us. The Psalmist wrote in Psalms 34:1, “I will extol the Lord at all times; His praise will always be on my lips. I will glory in the Lord; let the afflicted hear and rejoice. Glory the Lord with me; let us exalt his name together.”This Psalm gives us a template for thanksgiving. He said, and we should, “extol the Lord” not once in a while, not once in a year but at all t...

Tokyo 2020 has come and gone. It was scheduled for 2020 but due to the COVID pandemic, it was postponed to 2021.It was a very unusual Olympics with various competitions staged in stadia devoid of crowds to give their favourite competitors the needed support. Nevertheless, athletes in different categories prepared and competed in order to win a medal.I have read the stories of a few Olympians and what they had to do to prepare for the Olympics. They had to subject their bodies to rigorous training regimes as well as regulate their meals to ensure that they were physically fit for the competition. They also had to be mentally fit as well as we clearly saw in the last Olympics where some athletes had to withdraw from the games due to mental health issues...

As we grow from childhood into adulthood, we encounter experiences that tend to define us. I grew up not having things come my way easily. I found it difficult to ask for help because I was afraid of being turned down and would worry endlessly about putting the person in a position where they had to explain why they could not help. Even when I encountered people who could help, my fear of disappointment wouldn’t let me ask.When I was introduced to Jesus many years ago, what a joy it was to know I could ask for anything from God and He would be wiling and also able to answer my prayers! Some of my favourite verses were; “You can ask for anything in my name, and I will do it, so that the Son can bring glory to the Father. Yes, ask me for anything in my name, and I will d...

Almost everyone gets excited when they find themselves in contact with or in the company of someone very important or popular. Imagine someone rings your door bell and on opening the door you find yourself staring at a very important personality you know so well but have never met before. How would you react?I have watched TV shows where people got unexpected visitors like movie stars, popular musicians and other personalities known either nationally or globally and their reactions usually ranged from staring in shock to screaming in excitement. People become popular because they accomplished something that made them known. There are however ordinary people among us who do extraordinary things that men may not count as important enough to ma...

The dictionary defines power as the ability to do or act or the capability to accomplish something. I love the way the KJV dictionary described power, “ In a philosophical sense, the faculty of doing or performing any thing; the faculty of moving or of producing a change in something; ability or strength”. It goes on to categorise power as either active or speculative. Active power is that which moves the body, for instance when a man raises his hand, while speculative power is that by which we see, remember or think. For instance, power may exist without exertion where for example, we have power to speak when we are silent.One of the reasons why power is attractive to man is the ability to exercise authority over others. This coul...
