Namibia: Church Challenges the Norm With ‘Love, Sex and Lies’

The Namibian – Every Sunday for the next few weeks, Koi International Worship Centre in Windhoek will be hosting a series titled, ‘Love, Sex and Lies: The Climax’, a teaching series by Pastor Michael Amey.

The series returns again with part two after part one ended last year. The discussions in the series plan to pull in people of all faiths from around the city and the coastal town of Walvis Bay.

The comeback will have a deeper and uncut approach as ‘Love, Sex and Lies’ addresses issues behind matters in relationships, sex, homosexuality, marriage, worth, companionship, healing and restoration of self and broken relationships.

“Yes, the topics might seem sensitive for some churches but they are important issues to tackle,” said Pastor Michael Amey.

He said that he got the idea of starting this series after cases of baby dumping and passion killing sky rocketed in the country.

“We will be addressing these issues in a radical way without condemning anyone. This way we hope to help people in making the right decisions when it comes to getting help when they find themselves in difficult situations and when faced with abusive relationships.

“We have come to realise that society and other churches shy away from talking about sensitive topics like this, but we have decided to be candid about it and discuss it like any other issue that is spoken about on the streets.

“This series is open to everyone and is primarily an outreach to young adults to help them better understand themselves and to get connected with the happenings in society,” he said.

The series is set to start this Sunday, 16 March and every Sunday after that until 6 April at Koi International Worship Centre at 2 Hugel Street in Klein Windhoek at 09h00 and 11h00. If you find yourself in Walvis Bay, join them at Walvis Bay Community Hall at 18h00 every Sunday. This powerful series is free and open to everybody in Windhoek and at the coast.

In addition, Koi International Worship Centre will be hosting a six week male mentorship programme called Made Men. This programme will begin on 12 April and will include six sessions where men, through the guidance of a mentor, will cover issues affecting men suc h as the purpose of a man, finance and physical fitness.

All men are invited to participate and more information is available from the Koi International Worship Centre office.
