What is the most irrelevant subject you had to study when you were in school & why?

Imagine_Me_rev.400
We began a series last week entitled, ‘Imagine Me’ or ‘why ordinary people like me and you can change the world’. As we celebrate 10 years of Mavuno’s story, we are looking at the life of Apostle Paul, one the most influential leaders of all time, in order to understand better who this community is.

Do you remember Mock exams? What was your K.C.S.E index number?

Imagine_Me_rev.400

We are looking at the life of Paul, one the most influential leaders of all time. In the last sermon post, we discovered that we have many people far more qualified that God could have used, but somehow, He chose Paul. God is not waiting for perfect people who have their act together to spread His love. Instead, God loves unlikely candidates!

In a sense, exams and index numbers prepare us for life because life is about assessment and ranking. At work, we have regular assessments that tell us who is Continue reading

Imagine Me -God Loves Unlikely Candidates

Whose the person you would want on your team if you were going to change the world?

Imagine_Me_rev.400Last month, we went through the series ‘Press Play’ where we got to learn  what it means to  be a fearlessly influencer. WHY we engage – we demonstrate God’s presence in our lives by solving societal issues.  WHAT we engage – fearless influence begins right where you are.  WHO we engage – and the importance of finding the right people around you to engage with.  HOW we engage – and that a critical step towards becoming a fearless influencer is to create a definite plan.

In a sense, the series this month is a follow up to last month’s. The series is titled, ‘Imagine Me’ or ‘why ordinary people like you and I can change the world’. We will look at Continue reading

Press Play – Influence Requires a Definite Plan

After you have figured out why I need to engage, what to engage and who to engage, what next?

Press_Play_400

Many of us have interest in something but we have no plan. If you had a friend for instance who had quietly expressed to you his interest in a beautiful lady, but over the course of several months, was not making any progress in actually doing anything about his feelings what would you say?

Press Play – Influence Takes Multiple Connections

Who should we engage in order to become change agents?

Press_Play_400

In the past two sermons, we have seen that we are built for our assignment and that the things that God is calling us to influence are already within our sphere of operation; our homes, our work and our professions.

Three or four weeks ago property of unknown value was destroyed after fire razed stalls at Nairobi’s Gikomba market. The cause of the fire is suspected to be arson. This market is not really a well-structured market; it is just temporary structures that easily burn down when fire starts as witnessed in the past. Though perceived to be a temporary market, there are clothes and shoe vendors whose Continue reading

Press Play – You Are Built For Your Assignment

I want to engage but where do I start?

Press_Play_400

Since we established last week that we have a part to play in impacting society, the next question is what do I engage? People feel like society has so many problems. We feel overwhelmed by the issues we see. Many people look around and they don’t know where to start.

Acts 9: 10-21

Why did Jesus pick Saul to be his representative to the non-Jews, kings and Jews? God calls Paul to the gentiles because he is from two contexts; he is both Jewish and at the same time a Roman citizen. In other words he was perfectly built to take this message to certain Continue reading

Press Play – Becoming The Change Agent

Posted in Mavuno Sermons with tags , , , , on July 5, 2015 by mavunite

How do we move from being people who murmur to people who actually influence society?

Press_Play_400You don’t have to tell Kenyans what is wrong with the society around us, we know the problems and we seemingly have the solutions if social media is anything to go by. Even in casual conversations on the street or in the matatu, Kenyans are discussing the society around us. Many of us are doing the bare minimum. The hash tag has become the new tool for engagement.

We are master murmurers. Social media is murmuring. There is hardly anything that comes out that is strategic. A lot of it is just murmuring but we don’t go beyond it. There is a comfort in the fact that we are all suffering. But in the interaction on social media, there is a feeling that the solution does not depend on me, but on someone else… Someone else who is in the position of Continue reading
