When Life Takes A Wrong Turn

I have been fortunate to live in three different countries that all practice Christianity, but I must emphasise, at various levels. In the United Kingdom, they are turning churches into nightclubs, in the United States of America they are building more churches, and in Zimbabwe they worship in open stadiums, no building can accommodate the numbers. Where do the citizens of these countries turn to when life delivers under the belt blow? My childhood memories of Christianity are a mixed bag. As a young man, in my early teens, I lived with this Apostolic Faith family, in deep rural Zimbabwe, where witchcraft was practiced in broad daylight let alone at night. Where people would threaten to kill each by manipulating lightning and thunder and the heavens above would deliver the fatal blow. To protect ourselves, the family made sure that we attended church service every Saturday without failure. But at some point when life experiences took the worst turn, I was woken up in the middle of the night to accompany the woman to see a witchdoctor; her husband lived and worked in Bulawayo. That experience led me to question not only her beliefs, but mine too. When Dolly returned to Bournemouth after visiting her sick mother in Zimbabwe and she started “seeing things,” who did she turn to?

Childhood Friends

As we all plough through childhood to adulthood we make friends, attend schools before meeting our husbands, wives and partners. Are you still in contact with any of your childhood friends, if so, do you still talk about your past, how was it like? If you are no longer in contact with them, why not take time and try to reconnect with them; LinkedIn and Facebook are the good places to start from. How about the secondary school you attended, was it known for producing doctors or kombi (minibus) drivers? And the woman or man you married or share your life with, what were the obstacles you faced and lectures you received for your choice of partner?
