7 Rules of Life

Written by Published in Youth


In life one has got to have certain principles or rules that guide them to achieve their goals for success and these are as follows,

For the past years, I have attended different youth programs and it always puzzles me on how the youth respond. This is disheartening because unlike other secular programs, the church programs are always pushed to the wall. I have for example attended Naguru Deanery Youth Day, Naguru Deanery Youth Conference and Mbuya Parish Youth Conference.

What is very clear is that our young people are not sure if they are the ones to call youth. When I attended the planning meeting for Deanery Youth Day, the organizers planned for about 300 youth from all the five parishes that forms Naguru Deanery. But, to my surprise, the turn up was really very shocking. This is because out of the estimated 300 youth, only about 70-80 youth turned up. In the other Naguru Deanery Youth Conference   and Mbuya Parish Youth Conference, I literally saw almost the same turn up of youth yet when planning, the budget is usually fat considering a big number.

The best practices in adolescent faith formation described in this essay demonstrate that congregations can make a significant difference in the faith lives of young people—today and into their adult lives.

There are seven developed principles , and corresponding practices, to describe a contemplative approach to youth ministry that guides the spiritual development of youth.

Youth Involvement in Leadership

Written by Published in Youth

How can a congregation equip and involve youth as leaders in congregation?

1. Identify ways to integrate youth into existing congregational leadership roles. Identify all of the possibilities for leadership in the ministries, programs, and activities of the church: councils and committees, ministries and programs (liturgy, justice and service, social activities, education). Identify specific roles for adolescents such as teachers in children’s faith formation or as readers, greeters, musicians, artists for Sunday worship.

Most people have at least one bad habit. While some are relatively harmless, others can have a negative impact on your health or your life. When bad habits spill over to your finances, it can make getting ahead a major challenge. Learning how to break these bad money habits can help you get your finances back on track so you don’t end up in the poor house.

Diamond tips

Written by Published in Youth

Kanjije a youth shares his top tips for success…

I just decided to venture on the lane for my writing. And I would like to tear out my heart concerning writing. Writing is one of those diuretic jobs that drain ones’ water out of the bodies before realizing how punched one has been. In fact, if you have pressure, it’s advisable to reduce the intake of writing or reading lest you lose it all. The passion for writing is like the movement of the whirl winds that when it comes, it sweeps one to the clouds. In fact, the whirl wind is a better comparison because with writing, one talks to oneself like a night ghost. Wake up in the night and do nothing but shun that boss who made your day a million times difficult or that ‘gu’ boy or girl whose glance at church you thought meant a thing or that guy or lady with an attire that made you think of increasing your wardrobe or actually that night star, morning starlet, eclipse, Mandela (R.I.P), priest, Sudan, accident and it goes on and on with your heart impulse increasing like that wet dream you had waking up thinking you were with ‘susu’ mates emptying the stomach only to realize you are static in the dream and soaked like a wet hen.

Well it’s that time of the year again when one is asked about their resolutions and one can only resolve to look back at what one failed to resolve the previous year. Much as it is a tradition to set one, I have often failed to honour my resolutions because when I do, it usually comes unexpectedly and I only recall what was on the list at the beginning of the following. I am not saying setting resolutions is problematic and one should not do so. In fact, do it earnestly and energetically, remember forward stewards to the promised land.

Hmmm, I recalled one thing that swept me off my feet, Fr. Paulino Mondo is one youth whose vigour is more than the reaction of sodium to potassium though I think ammonia would top all if my Chemistry did not end in the laboratory. Well, for the young ladies and gents whose resolution is to get married this year, according to Fr. Pauilino, stop wasting time dreaming when there is no potential candidate. In fact, if you have never set your eyes on a lady or man, your resolution is as rusty. First, you need to get a boyfriend or girlfriend before you dream of marriage partners. In fact, Father emphasized why you should set that as your resolution if you haven’t yet resolved to get one. If things fail, then you could consider 2015.

You ought to have a role model

Written by Published in Youth

Most of the times, we are caught between a rock and a hard place thinking over who we need in our lives. Today, I think we are blessed with so much that we are often spoilt for choice. However, the parish day did open a number of eyes to aid us in this search that seems endless.
