Description : In the words of William Wordsworth, “There is one great society alone on earth: the noble living and the noble dead.” Either way, none can be forgotten, as this is what Serve with Heart and Might is all about. Serve with Heart and Might is an inspirational personal account of Oluneye Oluwole’s journey through the political landscape in Nigeria. From the beginning, she leaves you in no delusion, and you can see a frank assessment of self that displays a steeling resolve to dare the un-daring in the face of stifling glass ceiling. A bold and intimate step forward from her previously published book, Oluneye tells of her travails and triumphs as she makes her way through the complex political maze in her beloved country, Nigeria. She holds nothing back and is not afraid to share emotional accounts of personal defeat, periods of brutal self-assessment, and that defining moment when she identifies her purpose in life. As she does so, she gives a fresh perspective to the much-talked-about change that Nigerians so deeply desire. In Serve with Heart and Might, you find the curtains pulled back to offer a rare glimpse into the workings of the Nigerian political machinery. An unlikely politician, as Oluneye likes to describe herself, she explores themes such as maintaining a balance between a purpose-driven life and family, true service to humanity, as well as recognizing when to quit when the ovation is loudest. She knows too well the message in William Shakespeare’s words ‘All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players: they have their exits and their entrances; and one man in his time plays many parts, his acts being seven ages,’ and the greatest mistake and danger in not discerning when to ‘exit the stage’. Oluneye does not spare you the details of unavoidable murky waters encountered in the male-dominated world of politics such as is obtained in Nigeria. She details encounters, experiences, and inspiring events that helped shape her political viewpoints and mould her into the woman she has become. As you walk with Oluneye in Serve with Heart and Might, you find nuggets of wisdom embedded in its pages. In a book the budding politician will reach for time and time again, Oluneye distils from her experiences of service in government the much-needed advice for the inevitable uncertain days ahead. This straightforward, unambiguous, frank, and point-blank memoir raises the consciousness and conscientiousness of its readers to serve humanity with heart and might and sets them on a voyage where only the courageous survive and triumph.
Description : In this study, Alex Hon Ho Ip argues that when Paul wrote to Philemon about Onesimus, his main purpose was not to try and reunite, as is widely held, a runaway slave with his master, but rather to have Onesimus accepted as a beloved brother in Christ. By examining the letter's inner texture, the author shows that Paul's main concern was for Philemon and Onesimus to be reconciled in brotherly love. The inter-textual weave reveals Paul's theological and ethical thoughts on love, which is the basis for the apostle's main argument. By taking a new institutional economics approach to help reconstruct the economic relationship between slave and master, Alex Hon Ho Ip is able to offer a better understanding of the original relationship Paul argued against. With all this in mind, the focus is on re-reading the letter and hearing how Paul's rhetoric exhorts a new relationship between Onesimus and Philemon.

Description : As I write these words I would say forgiveness is the most powerful spiritual tool one can take with them on their life journey. While in Maryland ministering at my very first out of state meeting is where God through the Holy Spirit taught me about forgiveness. When one refuses to forgive and allows un-forgiveness to reign in their heart it will literally paralyze them from moving into the true blessings God has for them. Life becomes more tainted one might say. In Matthew 9:2 we see Jesus healing a man from palsy (paralyze) the first thing he says to him was take up thy bed and walk thy sins have been forgiven. Jesus knew the cause of his crippling state, and forgiveness was the answer. When speaking to the people there he said, "what's easier to forgive him or say take up thy bed and walk?" He was stagnated and could not move because of unforgiveness and lay there without hope. Whatever the sin was it was not the problem it did its job. That was to stop him from moving forward in life. His life had altered its course he had become stuck. The life force of his spirit had stop until Jesus the life giver came. I can remember the day that Jesus came into my life giving me mercy here I stood a sinner and now my sins have been forgiven or pardon. There is a song that said, "When I could not reach mercy, mercy came running to me" Jesus has come to us. Glory! So just as you have been forgiven you too must forgive all those in your past that has hurt, disappointed you causing you to become stagnated in your life. Jesus the giver of life is here!
