Perhaps a single day in a year is simply not enough when it comes to professing your appreciation for your mother. It could be rightfully said that your mother is and has always been one of the most important people in your life. Since the moment you came into this world, her loving arms have gently supported you and guided you through every step of the journey that is life.
So, how is it possible to show this person how much you treasure her presence in your life? It certainly is not. But what can be done is to hold a special once-in-a-year day dedicated to her, to signify even a portion of the love and dedication she has showered upon you.
This may be a rare, once-in-a-year day, but that is perhaps what makes it so special and apt, a perfect way to show your mother how special she … Read the rest

It has been a very long time since WWII, almost 75 years in fact. The plight of those affected has never been forgotten as the world moved on. A little-known fact was that during the war Japan forced somewhere between 20,000 and 200,000 Korean women to work in Japanese brothels. These ladies were referred to as “Comfort Women“, essentially they were forced into becoming prostitutes. Over the course of time, Japan has since apologized numerous times to South Korea for the wrongdoing. The South Korean government has never felt that Japan really meant the apology up until recently.

Pastor Chris Oyakhilome created controversy with his recent statements about the role that women should play in a marriage. Members of the Nigerian Christian Feminist movement are upset with Oyakhilome’s comments, and believe that some type of action should be taken against him.

Women should understand that once they get married, they are under their husband’s authority and should try to fulfill his needs. Oyakhilome says that according to the Bible, women do not share authority with … Read the rest
