Today @ Healingsprings fellowship

Our Operative Narratives (ON) can be simply defined as scripts, rule book, philosophy, stories or narratives; we use to navigate our lives through the complexities of this world.

There are good and bad scripts. Good scripts enhance our personal effectiveness, while bad scripts hinders it. Perhaps most importantly, bad scripts are often replayed in times of change or difficulty.

Scripts can also be divided into two levels, namely: meta scripts and personal scripts. Meta-scripts are the overarching stories of how the world operates, and personal scripts are our understanding of how the world operates.

Daniel Taylor puts it this way:

“You are your stories. You are the product of all the stories you have heard and lived – and many that you have never heard. They have shaped how you see yourself, the world, and your place in it…

Our stories teach us that there is a place for us, that we fit… the more conscious we are about our stories, and our roles as characters in them, the more clarity we have about who we are, and why we are here, and how we should act in the world.”

– Tell Me a Story: The Life Shaping Power of Our Stories

To this end Jesus urged his audience to Repent with a view to identify these scripts – especially bad ones, and begin the process of personal transformation.

Join us for Operating Narratives as part of my end of year reflections.

7 Habits of Highly Effective People

We all want to succeed in our vocation or mission, and one path to achieving this is identifying a
road map that can help us on our journey.
Unlike most other concepts, Stephen R. Covey’s seminal book: The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People® ignores trends and pop psychology, for Christian principles based on:

● fairness,

● integrity,

● honesty, and

● human dignity.
To this end I will be starting a 7 part series on Habits of Highly Effective People this Sunday. 

Drawing from scriptures and wisdom from this book, we will delve into practical ways in which we can embed these habits into our lifestyle, for excellence in ‘things pertaining to life and godliness’ – (2 Peter 1:3).
These qualities are essential building blocks for pursuits in ministry, business, scholarship and career; so come and be inspired!

This Sunday @ Healingsprings fellowship!

Built To Last.

In a world obsessed with Pop Culture and excesses, the term success conjures a whole new meaning. 

Jesus faced the same challenges in his era. For instance, when the elites ridiculed his perspective on financial stewardship his answer was, 

‘for what is prized by human beings is an abomination in the sight of God.’ (Luke 16:15b).

In the same vein the preacher drew a sound conclusion to his thoughts with these words: 

‘Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God and keep His commandments, For this is man’s all.’ (Ecclesiastes 12:13).

Therefore our love for God and humanity makes wealth a force for good. 

To this end tomorrow’s lecture is entitled: Built to Last.

During the course of my talk I will explore 5 Pillars of Success, and 5 mind sets that can drown our dreams.
