My Dear Pastors and Leaders,
Our nation, Nigeria’s continued existence as one indivisible entity is being threatened. Separatist agitations are on the rise. Past wrongs are being unearthed and current injustices being magnified across the geo-political zones. “I am absolutely right and you are incurably wrong” and “my way or the highway” are becoming the order of the day. Positions are hardening. In one word we are on the brink again.
We at Kingdom Men Global Network are alarmed at the role we Christians are playing in the whole confusion. We are particularly concerned that Christian men are actively joining in the ethnic card playing role; becoming ethnic champions on social and traditional media and even in private discussions. We do this absolutely unmindful of the fact that we are God’s accountability officers.
For instance, even if it could be argued that armies are dominated by men, we forget that women and children are normally the majority of victims and casualties of wars that we cause! And we forget that it is our responsibility as family heads and leaders to protect them.
That is why the next edition of our regular gathering, MEN’S BREAKFAST ROUNDTABLE is themed, ‘THE MEN NIGERIA NEEDS NOW’. NOW, here refers to these testy times; these times of mindless hate speeches and declarations. Date is Saturday, July 8 at 8:30am -12:30pm and venue is Bluenest Hotels, 9, Osolo Way, Ajao Estate, Off Murtala Muhammed International Airport Road, Oshodi-Isolo.
The Lead Speaker, Professor Anya O. Anya has a revelation; he has a word from God that we believe every man should hear. He is not just a globally recognised academic, pioneer Executive Director of Nigeria Economic Support Group and later Chairman of its Board; he is an elder statesman and servant of God who listens for and receives the word of God. An Elder of the Presbyterian Church, we believe every man should hear what God said to him concerning Nigeria.
You are specially invited and we plead with you to please mobilise the men within your sphere of influence everywhere to attend this programme. We trust God to use the breakfast meeting to do something special for you and through you, for our nation. Please see the accompanying e-invite for details .
I know I can count on you and so, look forward to receiving you and those you will invite.
Yours Faithfully in the Pursuit of Christlike Manhood.
