It’s been an awesome week for us here at Christian Blog Ghana. We appreciate the support and the “likes” that we’ve been receiving on our Facebook page. We hope the love we have received will extend to real testimonies and articles from you, our cherished readers.
Back to our series on making relationships work and our focus in this post is on the available resources that aid in that
Just like we are taken to school to acquire knowledge or read books to broaden our intellect, it is also wise to acquire knowledge in the field of relationships. It is amazing how much time and money we invest in our looks, clothes, food, other books among others but never spend any time seeking information on starting and keeping relationships, Proverb 19:2 says. “Desire without knowledge is not good, and whoever makes haste with his feet misses his way.” This is the reason we should seek knowledge as believers.
We may desire to have lasting relationships with the opposite sex but if we do not make time to learn about how it is done, then our relationships will not last.
As Christians, where can we seek the right information which will us build our relationships?
Books and Tapes – There are several books written by different authors on this subject. A lot of Ghanaian pastors and counselors have written books and recorded tapes on this subject. A few of them include Bishop Dag Heward Mills, Elder Amos Kevin Annan, Reverend Dr. Samuel Kissiedu and many more. If you are seeking books written by authors who are not Ghanaians, then look for Myles Munroe’s “Waiting and Dating.” There are several others by T.D Jakes. Just visit a good Christian bookshop and you will have a wide array to select from.
Radio and Television Programmes – Helpers of our Joy is a relationship and marriage counselling programme which airs on Sweet Melodies 97.3 FM on weekdays from 9-10 pm. The programme features renowned marriage counselors who provide biblical insight for your relationship.
Mama Cathy also features on Sunny Fm 88.7 FM every Sunday at 9-11pm in a show dubbed Echoes of Hope Radio Broadcast. On Saturdays after the 6 am news on Joy 99.7 FM, Edem Knight-Tay and her team discuss relationship and marriage issues on Home Affairs.
Counselor Luderodt is also one of the most vibrant counselors in the country at the moment. He features on several programmes both on radio and television.
If you do not mind spending time with students at the University of Ghana then there are several events on relationships in that institution. What you need to do is to keep your ears wide opened and you will hear about them.
There are other events in other churches that you can attend. Just keep an open ear.
