A main motivation for My 52 Weeks of Worship Project, was remembrance– honoring my father, my hero, Dr. Ephraim Nseabasi Bassey. Indeed even his very name, Nseabasi means “I am looking to God.” In this journey, I am living a truth that was encompassed in his very name. Searching…

#25 of the 52 Things that I learned from 52 Weeks of worship states: “It is quite ok to believe one thing, and stand shoulder to shoulder with people who believe something else.” Two women, Jordan Pahl, and Dahlia Bazzaz have learned this lesson, apparently. Their story…
