So today is Sunday!
Hope you all went to church.
Today I went to St Mary's Catholic Church, MD.
it's the Sunday before Thanksgiving Thursday (28th November, USA always celebrates Thanksgiving Thursday on the last Thursdays of November each year).

The church service was awesome,the gospel was outstandingly read and everything went just as organised.

The whites have a way of organising their things making it all look effortless. It's just like they are not serious but then they make headway more than we serious Nigerians.

I never for once heard anything about donations or second and third collections, no special attention was given to any politician or wealthy fellow.

The church service lasted for approximately 1hour and 15mins after which we all went to the dining to have breakfast.

I don't know how they do this here, but I'm utterly amazed.

This should be house christianity should look like.

On the other hand, today is christ the King celebration in Catholic Church, I paid close attention throughout the church and never was it mentioned here, maybe they forgot!
I agree with your submission about donation, I was in Amsterdam in August 2004 for one month vacation, l attended a small church close to where I stayed, I wanted to give an offering to the church through the minister of the church, he refused to collect it, he said that the government gives them support and he doesn't need my money but I told him that I am giving it freely from my heart regardless of the support from the government, it was a rude shock to me but I still dropped the money for the church.

God is not hungry, poor or in need of quid to spend in heaven, how can the creator depend on his creation for any assistance, haba, God is too big to depend or ask anything from a wretched human, it is humans that needs financial help and not God, some fake preachers extort their gullible followers.

I believe you did, you must have changed your quote.

Just admit it and move on. What's with the lies.

Next time, dont quote me if you're looking to fight. Especially when I dont know you.

Yes, God doesn't need our money but you have forgotten here in Africa that churches ain't sponsored by the government . Besides, most pastors are full-time and so, depend on tithes and offerings for their daily upkeep. God encourages giving to the church only that some NGC pastors overdo it and turn it to a compulsory thing. Even me myself won't give if I'm compelled to do so. Just saying tho.

Your aggression is over the top.

I believe you did indeed change your quote, lie all you want. If you say you didn't, that's that. Move on.

Report to anyone you feel like, I broke no rules. Tone down your rhetoric because you are not the only person on the thread.

If it gets locked or deleted, good for you.

Well, I will not disagree with your post but my worries about the giving culture in Nigeria / Africa is that charlatans / guymen have hijacked the good intentions of the word GIVING, if you give to a church and part of the money is used to take care of full time missionaries / mission projects / promotion of mission activities and helping the poor folks in that local assembly with feeding and other support systems especially to the poor, l have no problem but if the money is only in the pocket of the pastor / wife / cronies / family members to eat and flex alone, then I have a big problem with that

Someone will just wake up in the morning and say he was to become a pastor just for financial gains. In my area, the number of churches is so much that they even do churches in shipping containers. I go to some churches on the island and they'll be like "if you want to donate to the church with $100 and above, please signify and we'll specially pray for you". Not saying one shouldn't give, but that these people shouldn't turn the church to a commercial center

If someone had told me a month ago, that I would be leaving Nigeria for USA, I would have considered it a very expensive joke.
Following our successful visa interview, feels right to inform this amazing Nairaland family that my family and I have finally touched down Washington DC. This would be our new home for now.
Feels refreshing to eventually leave Nigeria for good.

It"s freezing cold here, would keep tabs of my daily experiences here in the USA on this thread, but before that, tips on how to survive this chill would most importantly be appreciated.


Congrats OP wishing you all the best in your endeavours. Alot of people wishing to be in your shoes will spew hate on this thread. But please don't reply and derail your own thread. Will be following this thread back to back

Oh ok...no problem.
Thanks for asking.
Well, I'm not sure that I meant to put the "?" there..probably was a typo.
A "period" would have sufficed.
However, it's not incorrect to have put "?" there.
The question mark could simply imply that perhaps I wasn't being intrusive to him...only I may have been thinking it. But he would have to be the one to decide if I was being so or not.
So he could've replied, "Oh, you're not being intrusive."
Hope that helped.
Sorry for the confusion.

Shey i said it before how funny things here can be in the eyes of a Nigerian.
This people have a way of preserving just some act we would presume to be absurd, but then it means a lot to them and no one can intervene.

So Thursday is USA Thanksgiving day and the 3 lucky turkeys just arrived.
