Gar is a large village (or small town) in Bauchi State, Nigeria where my dear friend, Prof, Andrew Haruna grew up, It is where he married his cherished wife, Elizabeth, whose father was head teacher of their Primary School. Now the town chiefs and elders have given him a special title and honour in a “turbaning” ceremony and if you follow this link you can see the NTA news report. https://fb.watch/4QikB_T4es/

My sincere thanks to volunteer readers and commentators for helping prepare my book on the Revelation of John. The provisional title is “The Revelation for normal Christians”. There is a dedicated page on this blog and it will be updated with book chapters and visual aids on a frequent basis.
If this book ever gets published any proceeds from the hard copy will go to the Lighthouse Baptist Church.
If you should feel the need to write a glowing poem
Please desist, take some tea, reflect on where I’m going.
You will not hear my laughter, light upon the breeze.
My smile is not in sunshine nor movement in the trees.
An inert body fresh interred means my voice cannot be heard
And no trite piece of rhyme should ease your loss nor mine.
Agree with me to shun – eschew – the syrup-sickly lies
Contract our pact to face – embrace – everybody dies.
The hope my body rests in is divine, creative Word
Let the tired cliches rest. like me. in peace.
