All in The Family – Managing Toxic Relationships

Posted in Mavuno Sermons with tags , , , on June 28, 2015 by mavunite

How will you know that you are facing toxins in your relationship?


It is impossible to live a life that is unaffected by other people since their attitudes and opinions, like pollen, blow into our lives on a daily basis. These in turn end up shaping our perspective on life and influencing our decisions. Studies show that, toxic relationships are tied to two issues:

Influence – What generally influences our life choices

Skill – How we view and confront the hurdles we face in life.

To tie these two issues together, there needs to be Continue reading

All in The Family – Adopted

Are institutions really the ideal place for children to grow up in?

Family_400 As one who heads one such organization, I have to say No! Children should not grow up in institutions. It is not the ideal! Many people went to boarding schools – and we do have some fond memories of the boarding school experience but I don’t remember anyone crying when we had to close school and go back home!

We were protected, we were nurtured while in school but it was just not home. One of the main differences was we all had that personal attention and love when Continue reading

All in The Family – 3 Seasons of Singlehood

Whats your most embarrassing dating experience?


This sermon blog is majorly for the single adults. You may have the gift of singleness and are happy and content about it. You also probably are in the condition of singleness i.e. not married, divorced or widowed and you are positive you don’t have the gift and are looking forward to get a partner. For the single adults, society has made you to feel like you’re a second-class citizen. As though being single is something to be ashamed of.

Let’s face it, our society puts enormous pressure on single adults to get married. For example, for the typical Kenyan lady, by the time she is a toddler she has already been dragged to Continue reading

All In The Family – Biblical Partnerships

Posted in Mavuno Sermons with tags , , , , , on June 7, 2015 by mavunite


Philippians 1:3-5  This scripture was a letter written by Paul while in prison. The Roman colony who are a people of great pride, language, clothing and customs didn’t appreciate Paul Jewish ways – Acts 16:20-21. This was a stretch for Paul too and thus the opening of the scripture is rather surprising… “I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now…” This is partnership in the wildest and widest sense. Two cultures that are so different yet Continue reading

Money Wise: Three Attitudes of Wealth

Posted in Mavuno Sermons with tags , , , , , on May 31, 2015 by mavunite

When it comes to money, what is your greatest fear/concern?


Is it fear of not having enough/ being broke? Or the fear of having too much? Generally when it comes to money, the fear of most humans today is that they will not have enough! Money is so important in today’s world! Without it, it’s hard to pay our bills and meet our obligations. Without it, it’s difficult to pay for the necessities of life, like food and rent. So understandably, the attitude of many towards money is to make as much as we possibly can and to keep as much as of it we possibly can so we can be as safe as we possibly can! At the very core of who we are, if we could be honest about it, our attitude when it comes to money is driven by fear!

We’ve been going through a sermon series this month called Money Wise, Lessons from a Billionaire. We have been learning some critical money lessons from the wealthiest man Continue reading

Money Wise – Investment 101

Have you ever been conned? Like you lost money in a way that you never saw coming?


Why do we get conned so easily? I know one of the reasons: we’re waiting for our big break! And when such opportunities present themselves, we think, “This is my chance!” We want to double our money, we look at “opportunities” presented to us and we think we’re about to make it! No more rat-race, I’m gonna be rich!

Many people believe in ‘the big break.’  – that one opportunity, that one contract, that dream job that could unlock all my dreams and make me rich. So we are always looking for that big break; we fill out the supermarket lotteries, we enter the promotions, we listen carefully to Continue reading

Money Wise – Wisdom Before Wallet

Posted in Mavuno Sermons with tags , , , , , , , , on May 17, 2015 by mavunite

So imagine with me that you discover that one of your best friends from primary or high school has become a billionaire, and that when you meet them, your friend is so excited that they give you the opportunity to ask for one thing – whatever it is you want. You don’t know whether he’ll be available tomorrow, so here’s your big chance. What would you ask for? 


Last week we began a new series for the rest of this month called ‘Money Wise: Lessons From A Billionaire’. We want to learn some critical lessons about money from a billionaire’s perspective.

So last week, we looked at Continue reading
