In the name of 'privacy'

When God created man in His own image and likeness as clearly stated in the Scriptures and I believe in this as the origin of man, one of the reasons for this was for fellowship which was to be very intimate with Himself and I believe that He wants and desires that fellowship to continue in the world today with Him and with fellow human beings.

In the name of ‘privacy and silence’, our contemporary society has come to a point where we have disconnected ourselves with one another, be alone and eventually being lonely which results into depression and desperation. What is the result of all this; drug abuse, low ethical standards in the community, high rate of suicide, shootings and killings in various learning institutions.

I have a conviction that it is time for us to start accepting to hear the ‘noise’ that comes from our neighbors and friends and reconnect back to enjoy the fellowship that comes from our Creator.
