The Ministry So far: Not grace(favor) alone but also hard work A woman came to me with her troubles like the woman who came to Jesus to cure her daughter(Mark 7:24-20). But this time, it wasn’t about spiritual possession but that her business isn’t going through. I looked at her with little anger. Why was I angry? What concerns me and your business? I am a pastor of souls and not a pastor of business. Why can’t you go to business counselors and arrange your business? These and more were what were in my mind? Just like Jesus when a man came to him in order to settle the disputes between him and his brothers, “Master, tell my brother to give me a share of our inheritance.’ And He said to him, ‘My friend, who appointed me your judge, or the arbitrator of your claims?’ ( Luke 12:13-21). However, just…

Psychology has a lot to do with learning. There is a reason why formal attire is required of teachers and other members of staff while in school: formal education is official business. Therefore, the place where this business is being done would have to be in such a condition as to manifest that seriousness. Dirty walls, broken windows, pothole-filled floors, leaky roof, and damaged board all speak to the seriousness of the event done inside the building. Officially termed enabling environment, every good school administrator should take care of renovations, reconstructions and rehabilitation of the school building plant to signify, to the students, and indeed all who come into the school environment of what takes place there. Can anyone expect students to give their best in a poultry like environment? 

Getting the buildings right is not about appearance, but for their huge impact on the psyche of the students. No one can train a gentleman in pig’s house says Archbishop Valerian Okeke. It goes to show that the level of preparation of an environment does a lot in showing the real intention of the management. Dilapidated buildings, patched up walls, leaky roofs, broken pieces of woods and half-torn window panes do not show the serious ness of the business of education. Children and young adults would come in and never tune in to what they are expected to. Somehow, everyone knows how environment impacts of the level of attention and engagement students are ready to manifest. 

Moreso, structure enables process. This means that the buildings determine how the process of teaching and learning can be. An instance is that a square or rectangular classrooms where there are heavy lockers filled with books can only enable lecture method excluding other methods like small groups and half-lunar shape among others. To keep rehabilitating school buildings in order to get them to the level of enabling solid and quality learning takes years.

My Valentine’s First Love Whenever we hear of valentine’s day, love comes to our mind. It’s not just love but romantic aspect of love which is most times inundated by eros. So, she was actually acting usual but in accordance with the times and knowledge in which she was born. Factually, she made the romantic advance on me, her lips trying heavily to caress mine, on the Feb. 14 2010, and she said “be my val?” This was after she had sent a valentine’s letter and signed—”from your Val…Love.” Yes, her name was Love. I used to tease her by calling her “Amica Mea,” My Love. Nevertheless, on this very day she made that romantic advance, which ended with “be my val?” I felt so sorry for her because I couldn’t respond, for I was more concerned about who Val was. I couldn’t understand how disappointed she was until I…
