EMOTIONALLY HEALTHY SPIRITUALITY By Peter Scazzero In this book, Peter diagnoses why even intense spirituality and all its activities can still leave someone empty, he reflects on emotional layers of his own life that had not yet been touched by God because he had concealed them from everyone and this resulted into emotional immaturity which nearly cost him everything. He discovered the link between emotional and spiritual health and his life was transformed. He takes us on a journey of the steps to transformation and how one can escape the lifelines and unhealthy spirituality and experience a fresh faith charged with authentic contemplating a hunger for God that leaving one filled up and overflowing instead of burning out and exhaustion. What is Christian Authentic life and how can we experience it today? Peter temps us to answer this question by inviting us to a deeper and wider relationship with Jesus. Christian spirituality without the integration of emotional health can be deadly.

BOOK REVIEW THE WAY OF THE HEART -DESERT SPIRITUALITY AND CONTEMPORARY MINISTRY. HENRI J.M. NOUWEN- SEABURY PRESS. Henry invites us to search deeply for the well-springs that nourish true ministry by looking to the example of the fifth-century Egyptian desert fathers and mothers. Their experiences teach us to find a place for Solitude, Silence, and prayer. “The the thesis of this book is the way God’s people find Him through their hearts producing an overflow to every sphere of their lives.” Henry’s major message is to move us beyond what seems forbidding about the three disciplines “Solitude, silence and prayer” by pointing us toward the “the way of the heart”, which then overflows into the way we relate with others and live our contemporary spiritual life. In this book, I found very profound truths about the three disciplines. 1.Solitude: We are living in busy days where we don’t find time to rest or ponder over the things we do or even think., and this leads to fabricated outward live…

GILL'S BIO. MY LIFE AS A CHILD.

Born April 1981 in Ngong where my parents lived before they separated and my elder brother and I moved with mum. Our firstborn was on campus then and we had no relationship at all because of the age difference, I didn't see him. I was then less than 5 years so I barely remember anything. My first Gillian Memory was when I was in nursery and our teacher Mrs. Kina while passing us out to join primary had one more handle, that was to cross my hand across the head and reach out for the ear. I failed that and it meant I was short for primary school. Surely that would have been unfair but thank God my mum spoke on my behalf and I joined primary. My memories flash to lower primary and the only thing I remember are my friendships ( Stella, Ruth, Daisy, Hilda, Muriithi, Mukami) and my family moments. My Dad was absent at this point and the only time I missed him was when we had to say what professions our Dad was, I asked my mum to tell me what profession he was so could always deal with t…

The Centrality of Worship
By John Piper 


 Missions is not the ultimate goal of the church. Worship is. Missions exist because worship doesn’t. 
Worship is ultimate, not missions because God is ultimate, not man. 
When this age is over, and the countless millions of the redeemed fall on their faces before the throne of God, missions will be no more. It is a temporary necessity. 
But worship abides forever. 
Worship, therefore, is the goal and fuel of missions: It is the goal of missions because in missions we simply aim to bring the nations into the white-hot enjoyment of God’s glory. The goal of missions is the gladness of the peoples in the greatness of God. “The LORD reigns; let the earth rejoice; let the many coastlands be glad!” (Ps 97:1 ESV, emphasis added). “Let the peoples praise thee, O God; let all the peoples praise thee! O let the nations be glad and sing for joy!” (Ps 67:3-4 KJV Cambridge ed.; emphasis added). But worship is also the fuel of missions. Passion for God in worship …

FOLLOW ME ...BOOK REVIEW
Book Title: Follow Me.     Author: David Platt.
As a believer in Christ, when you read the Bible, you discover that Jesus is the only
way to heaven. You get to understand that those who die apart from Christ face a
horrifying future. Yet, for whatever reason, you’ve made little effort to warn your
family and friends. You pass by them daily without saying a word to them about
Jesus Christ. Perhaps as you read this, you’ve began to look at your life and think,
‘This doesn’t make sense! Either, I don’t really believe the
Bible or I’m extremely unloving. I’m more concerned about
being rejected than I am about someone else’s eternal
destiny.’ If this is where you are, then that’s great! You are exactly
where the author of follow me wants you to be.
Davit Platt is the lead pastor of The Church at Brook Hills in
Birmingham. He seeks to point the reader to see that following Jesus
Christ involves losing your life – and finding a new life in Him. He
explores not only t…

WOMEN IN MISSIONS...…. 


Women have contributed much to Missions throughout history. However, their role in this area has never been free from controversy. Ours is not to discuss the controversies but to ask ourselves what are the opportunities.
“We get so caught up and focus on the tree that Women can’t eat and we forget that there is a massive garden to enjoy and lay hold of” Sam Bierig
When you think of women in missions, which names come to mind? Most of those their well-documented lives continue to inspire us to live lives fully yielded to the Gospel.
But the legacy of women on the mission field doesn’t end with them. For hundreds of years, women have been the lifeblood of missions, crossing enemy lines, crossing borders and even risking their lives to spread the Gospel.
