SHEIKH KAFUMBA KONNEH’S DEATH: A MINDER THAT THE DEAD DO SPEAK

first_imgThe airwaves and newspapers of Liberia carried the sudden and shocking news that Sheikh Kafumba Konneh died last Monday, July 20, 2015. In typical Islamic tradition, his funeral was quickly arranged for the next Tuesday, July 21, 2015. The funeral rites for this illustrious statesman, Islamic scholar and leader were held at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium in central Monrovia, about 4 pm. An array of religious leaders, government officials and a host of ordinary Liberians and foreigners were there to pay their last respects to this noble man of the land. What do we learn from his life and death in general to help us live better? Let us examine in brief below.As I thought about his life, contributions to both religious and political life in Liberia and his sudden death at the age of seventy-two, the saying in Hebrews 12:4, “By means of his faith Abel still speaks, though he is dead” came to mind. In some significant ways the dead do continue to speak to us the living by means of their deeds good or bad. In one sense when we die we take nothing out of this world. Paul writes: “We brought nothing in this world and it is certain we take nothing out” (Timothy 6:7). Many of the things some of us count so dear in life we will leave behind when we take our exit from this world: material possessions, money, clothes, food, drinks, sex, power, positions, and degrees. They become of no use to us when we die.On the other hand, the Bible reminds us vividly that our deeds will follow us. The writer of Revelation has this to say about what the dead carry with them: “And I heard a voice from heaven saying, ‘Write this: Blessed are the dead who from now on die in the Lord.” “Yes”, says the Spirit, “they will rest from their labors, for their deeds will follow them” (Revelation 14:13). The deeds of all humans will follow them in the life after this one and will testify in their favor or against them. Paul is clear about this when he penned down these words: “For all of us must appear before Christ, to be judged by him. We will each receive what we deserve, according to everything we have done in our bodily life, good or bad” (2 Corinthians 5:10). Paul adds that what we get will be in proportion to our faith and what we do as a consequence of our faith, if we sow sparingly we will reap sparingly; if we sow bountifully we will reap bountifully (2 Corinthians 9:6). “You are God’s building. Using the gift that God gave me, I did the work of an expert builder and land the foundation, and someone else is building on it. But each one must be careful how he builds… Some will use gold or silver or precious stones in building on the foundation; others will use wood or grass or straw. And the quality of each person’s work will be seen when the Day of Christ exposes it” (1 Corinthians 3:9-13).It is therefore important how each one of us lives now. Our faith, our thoughts, our words and actions, and our inactions will work in our favor or against us on the Day of Judgment. Our faith and our deeds can also help those coming after us or can hinder their own performance. Sheikh Konneh lived and served well over the years. He played crucial roles as a judge, a scholar and a religious leader in restoring and promoting peace and religious mutual co-existence.He and the likes of the Late Archbishop George Daniel Browne, Archbishop Michael Francis, many living now or dead in the inter-faith mediation committee (later changed to the Inter-Religious Council of Liberia), along with the women, and others worked, or better still, risked their lives to bring peace to Liberia during the heights of the civil war. He will be best remembered nationally and internationally as a restorer and promoter of peace in Liberia, and as one of those who labored for advancing religious tolerance at a time when it would have been easy to turn our civil war into a religious one between Christians and Muslims. He and others of both sides of the inter-religious council were treated with suspect and severely criticized for too closely aligning with the other religion (Christianity or Islam).How do we honor his memory? We do so by continuing to promote peace in whatever helpful ways. We show our deepest appreciation to his life and work by maintaining and advancing religious tolerance. Under his leadership as the head of the National Muslim Council of Liberia and under the leadership of Archbishop Jonathan B. B. Hart of the Liberia Council of Churches during the Ebola outbreak pastors and imams travelled in pairs to several counties of Liberia and together at the same workshops taught Christians and Muslims to suspend certain religious practices that were deemed dangerous to the fight against Ebola. Both religions taught their members that both the Bible and Koran teach that God is more interested in preserving the living and their health than in burial rites, especially those judged dangerous to the living. It was very telling for ordinary Muslims and Christians to see their leaders work together in promoting the common good of all society. We must not let any religious fervor spoil such a mutual collaboration. Let us all both Muslims and Christian pray, work for and encourage others to be promoters of peace and tolerance.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Soul Fresh Creates New Shock Singles

first_imgAward- winning rap duo Soul Fresh is on fire again after the release of two new singles that has taken Monrovia by storm. The group, which claims to be the best in the country, is claiming their status with these new offerings.The two singles, released a few weeks ago, seem just about capable of pulling anyone onto the dance floor, especially “Drop It and Wrap It”, which is much more than a club banger.The other song, “Pain”, features one of Liberia’s finest dialect rapper, Casimoney. The rapper has given a unique, catchy flow to the song that is gradually receiving positive reviews. But “Drop It and Wrap It” has been tipped by hard-line DJs and pundits, and looks set to be the best possible song for the Christmas season and beyond.The only Liberian DJ Nelly whose music has been aired over Be100!, an online radio station owned by former Nicki Minaj manager, Debra Antney has given the song a five star and calls it a “long feature hit”. DJ Nelly said: “Both songs are nice and worth listening to. My favorite is ‘Drop It and Wrap it.’”Having a great chorus intact, the group’s Shinning Man delivers another classic rap on “Wrap it and Drop It.” The songster talks about girls, weed, bottles, and living the celebrity lifestyle.“Drop it and Wrap it” looks set to be the newest slang for this year and probably the next. Let’s take a look at some of the lyric from the song “Wrap it and Drop It”.(Shinning man)I just want to drop it cut mae from my drunk and wrap itCall my nigga and my jue than we partySmoke wee get drunk like we crazy than I wrapThe next day go say my pray to the papayFor long life let me see plenty birth day likeMy grandma and my great grand auntyWhat you on jue drop it done be scare open that thing let me see itLa only you and me here no che cheYou no you like the peking thing them you want act hard headAhey……JB the head of the group barTo be success full it simpleEither you hustle or you struggle legal or illegal my peopleUse your brain or you use your muscleCause we only have one life to liveOne price to pay whether you like it or notEverybody going to kick the bucket one dayWhether you like or notShare this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

TRACK RECORD! OAKFIELD PARK 24-HOUR TRAIN RELAY RAISED €21,000 FOR IRISH CANCER SOCIETY

first_imgOakfield Park has announced that last weekend’s 24 hour sponsored train relay event has raised the amazing sum of €21,000.00 for the Irish Cancer Society.To begin the countdown at 6pm on Saturday the 4th May, Sir Gerry & Lady Heather Robinson drove the Duchess of Difflin Steam train on its first trip around the track. Oakfield Park then had the honour of welcoming 90-year-old Michael Gallen to take the footplate for the next lap. As a driver on the original Raphoe to Letterkenny line it was a real trip down memory lane for many people.The trains continued carrying passengers until darkness descended and the gardens were transformed by the running of the first ever, Midnight Express Train. This pre-booked trip was completely sold out with extra trains being added later. Passengers were treated to a candlelit tour with floating lanterns on the lakes and glowing braziers around the track.Alighting at the lakeside castle they were greeted with a glass of bubbly & delicious canapes, whilst being serenaded by the beautiful voice of local singer, Katie Porter. Once back on board the train again, all sorts of treats were in store. A “statue” came to life playing his saxophone, Robin Hood hung out of the trees calling on his trumpet and several ‘man-size’ ducks were to be seen chasing the carriages.Meanwhile back at the station the live music and drinks at the bar stayed lively into the wee small hours.Volunteer drivers kept the train going through the early hours of the morning and on into the dawn chorus. On Sunday the gates were flung open for the family fun day with more music, games & food, and of course more train trips. Huge numbers of home baked cakes were donated for sale & despite the rain Mango Catering’s Airstream Van had constant queues for their tasty burgers. Noel Cunningham oversaw the Grand Duck Race, when 400 ducks were launched to ‘swim’ across the lake. Winners of the Duck Race were Orla McBrearty, Georgina Wallace & Liam Lindsay. Other attractions included a live animal exhibit by Alcorns, from their tropical house and a taxidermy display of wild animals by Clonmany Wildlife Museum. Gareth Wilson from Raphoe correctly guessed that there were 74 balloons inside the Yellow Mini.At the end of the afternoon Noel Cunningham hosted the final draw for the business sponsorship prize and the three winners were:- Castleross Nursing & Retirement Village, Co. Monaghan; Vinehall Displays, Conference, Exhibition & Event Services, Dublin; & Panavision Ireland from Co. Wicklow. These three lucky companies have won a half day of personal business advice from Sir Gerry Robinson.At 6pm on Sunday 5th May, after a wonderful but exhausting day, the two trains were driven around on a final and very special lap of honour. All the passengers were ‘survivors’ from the Relay for Life Cancer Society.Oakfield Park would like to thank everyone who volunteered and gave so much energy and time to the event, not just over the weekend, but in all the days of hard work leading up to it. To all the suppliers who gave their goods and services free we are hugely grateful for their contributions, especially the many local ladies who donated such beautifully home baked cakes for sale. Thanks to the many musicians and singers who entertained our visitors. Finally our thanks to everyone who attended and turned the weekend into a wonderful community celebration to remember for years to come.  TRACK RECORD!

KILCAR LIFT COUNTY U-21 TITLE FOR FIRST TIME IN 37 YEARS

first_imgKilcar 3-9 Naomh Conaill 2-10Kilcar are Donegal U-21 Champions for the first time since 1974 – just edging out Naomh Conaill by two points in a thrilling final at O’Donnell Park in Letterkenny today.Kilcar county star Patrick McBrearty had an inspired game, particularly in the first half as his side raced into an early lead. Dermot McGinley fired in a superb goal and when McBreaty fired into the net, the Kilcar supporters were on their feet.Naomh Conaill seemed to wake up after that and there were a few moments when the tempers got the better of the players before Dermot Molloy found the net with a great effort.But the Kilcar fans couldn’t believe their eyes when McGinley raced onto a through ball and scored his second – and Kilcar’s third – goal of the first half which ended on a scoreline of 3-06 to 1-03.Naomh Conaill lads must have had a roasting at half time as they came flying out and points from Seamus Corcoran and Dermot Molloy reduced the deficit. And when a ‘nothing’ ball from Eunan Doherty went over the Kilcar keeper into the net, it looked as though Naomh Conaill would pull it back. Molloy added another score from a free to reduce the deficit to just three points.Ryan McHugh scored for Kilcar as his side looked to re-establish a foothold on the game but Naomh Conaill – with Molloy in top form – continued to press and the supporters were delighted when John O’Malley levelled.There was nothing in it terms of score at this stage – or on the park.But then Mark McHugh won and coverted a free-kick to put Kilcar in the lead again; a lead extended a few moments later when McBrearty pointing – to give Kilcar the win by 3-09 to 2-10.It was an incredible advertisement for U-21 county football.
