It’s February again and naturally you would expect the ubiquitous signs of ‘love in the air’. So much will be going down this month and talking about them would probably fill up a whole book! So I’ll just emphasize family and the serious implications of the quality of that basic social unit on the development and progress of our nation. If young people do not get the workings of (romantic) relationships and the purpose of marriage and family right, we would just end up fooling ourselves and recycling poor and harmful values and characters. Today, I’d like to share a link to an interactive programme I’m very optimistic about.
If you are single, engaged, or recently married, and you’ll be in Lagos next week, then here’s a really cool programme I think you’d find interesting and quite helpful. I’ve been attending Sunday services at the Covenant Christian Centre, Lagos, in the last 10 weeks, or so, and it’s been quite fulfilling and rewarding. You know that period when you just want to be away from the regular audience and familiar terrain, and you just want to be ‘alone’ to be refreshed with Wisdom and fuel for the greater journey ahead?
Whether marriage or even a serious relationship is not (necessarily) on your mind right now, or you can’t just wait to go down the aisle with that special someone, you could really derive a lot of benefit from an interactive singles forum at this time. The Singles’ Summit is an initiative of Covenant Christian Centre and it aims to shed Biblical light on relationships and make clearer the path that God would have us tread as Christian singles living in the 21st century.
The Interactive Forums Edition of the Singles Summit slated to hold on Saturday 19 February 2010 is aimed at creating an opportunity for every single to interact with individuals who have experienced what we all go through in our various relationships on a down-to-earth basis. It is a multiple-venue event which means that different topics are spread among different facilitators in the five (5) different venues.
