It is imperative that leaders understand that their firms are first and foremost technology companies, and secondly, that they are competing in a global market. When you understand that you are simply a global technology company that offers XYZ, that paradigm shift in thinking will automatically reshape your product development.
Hero worship is historical and present in most faith traditions. For instance, one can find it in Christianity with Jesus being the hero of humanity through his ‘sacrificial death’ and ‘resurrection’ thereby providing ‘salvation’ for humanity.
Heroes are also linked to the concept of ‘sonship’. So we have people that were referred to as ‘sons of God/a god’ as they were said to accomplish great exploits through ‘divine’ intervention. Even great rulers were known as ‘sons of God’.
Therefore the debate between faith traditions has mostly revolved around the concept of ‘unique Sonship’. Hence the efforts of writers of the letters we refer today as the ‘the New Testament’ in establishing Jesus as ‘God’s only son’.
However, there are other wider questions against this position. Some scholars even argue that we are all in fact — sons and daughters of God, and no one is unique in any sense.
By and large, one could argue that religion provides simple answers to complex questions about life and meaning. Whether or not those answers are necessary and sufficient is really down to individuals — and rightly so in my humble opinion!

Healingsprings fellowship is hosting the 2nd instalment of our online events on Saturday, August, 15th 2020, 7 pm – 8:45 pm (UK Time).
The theme for August’s virtual conference is The Digital Divide, with a focus on a case study on the impact of community IT provisions by an NGO in slums. The vlog will cover 3 settings in Lagos State, Nigeria.
By way of context, among other challenges with the COVID-19 pandemic, perhaps the biggest concern in the developing world has been the gap in access to information technology. While the West is now focused on cloud solutions and cyber security, the developing world is only scratching the surface in Information Technology.
For instance, schools and universities have really struggled to make the transition to digital teaching and learning in Nigeria for a plethora of reasons.
Those that are geared up for delivery are often faced with learners who: do not own a device; lack a safe space to study; are experiencing poor internet connectivity, lack electricity or alternatives to power their devices.
