It had been many weeks since I had attended any church, mosque or temple, but I was very pleased that I did, last Sunday, Australia Day Eve. This is a Public Holiday (each year on - I think - the last Monday of January each year). And as I am typing this, I am in the last minutes of it.
Here is a bit of Australiana I am very happy to share, so it contains terms and concepts well known to us Aussies, but perhaps not known and appreciated generally:
PRAYER OF CONFESSION
Let's quickly assume that there was never the Northern or Southern Protectorates; hence, no need for their amalgamation into what is today known as Nigeria, what would I be and what would you be? Today, you will not be the president of Nigeria and I will not be a Nigerian because there will be nothing like Nigeria. While I will be identified with just one tag (that is my tribal tag, as insignificant as it may be in the global order of things, it is one's primary identity), most likely, you too will.
It is appropriate that every New Year that we should "spring clean" our homes, to "sweep out the old, and bring in the new". We have to do this; otherwise, we clutter not only our homes, but our minds with much that is stale.
I hope that you will enjoy this exercise of the mind, thus to go out, and about, proclaiming the "Good News", so that "good things" might happen:
In the "a - z" universal scheme of things, "atheists" are just as much "theists" as anyone else. If

(Note: This write up became necessary with the intensity at which the promos being released and Promo winners emerging on a daily basis)
Did you see the MTN Promo in 2012 where subscribers are expected to load as small as 3000 per month and stand a chance of winning an Aeroplane?
What was your reaction towards it? Do you rush to buy a recharge card so as to increase your chance of winning the aircraft or did you just Hiss?
