Honouring agreements is essential to doing business as a Christian

It used to be as simple as a handshake or even a back-of-the-napkin agreement, but it has now been elevated to a bulky contract document, shrouded in clauses and sub-clauses. 

The basis is still the same. Two people or organisational representatives discuss on a matter and agree on deliverables. And it is expected that both parties keep to their end of the bargain. 

However what is prevalent now in most circles, is that agreements have lost their essence. People now try to find loopholes in the agreements and change the basic fundamentals on which the agreement was built. 

It is only when you are at the receiving end of a broken agreement with a Christian that you would understand the pain and frustration. It is a drain of integrity, confidence and trust. 

It can be likened to Jesus Christ changing his mind on the cross and deciding not to die on the cross because the people did not believe in Him.

Pope Francis offers prayers for migrants killed in Mediterranean shipwreck

Pope Francis on Sunday offered prayers for migrants who died in the Mediterranean Sea this week, in what the U.N. refugee agency called the worst shipwreck in the area this year.

Speaking to thousands of people gathered in St. Peter’s Square for his Sunday address, the pontiff expressed his sorrow and asked the worshippers to join him in a prayer for the dozens of migrants who died trying to reach Europe. 

“I learned with pain the news of the dramatic shipwreck that happened in recent days in the waters of the Mediterranean Sea, where dozens of migrants, including women and children, lost their lives,” Francis said. The pope appealed to the international community to act promptly to guarantee safety and dignity for all. 

Fifty-five bodies have been recovered so far off the Libyan coast, an aid worker said on Saturday, after a wooden boat carrying hundreds of migrants capsized on Thursday. It was unclear how many were on board and how many were still missing and feared drowned after what the U.N. refugee agency UNHCR described as “the worst Mediterranean tragedy of this year”. 

The Libyan navy on Thursday put the number of migrants on board at 250. 

The UNHCR said up to 150 were feared dead.

Suspected Islamists kill at least 65 in northeast Nigeria

At least 65 people died in an attack by suspected Islamists on a group returning from a funeral in Nigeria’s northeastern Borno region, state television reported on Sunday, one of the deadliest attacks on civilians in recent years.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility, but the Boko Haram group and rival Islamic State in West Africa (ISWA) splinter group have often carried out attacks in the area.

Local government chairman Mohammed Bulama was quoted as saying on state television that the assailants killed 21 people returning from the funeral on Saturday and another 44 people when they tried to regroup to defend themselves.

Others were injured, he said, meaning the death toll may rise.

President Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday condemned the attack and directed the military to hunt down the perpetrators, a statement from the presidential office said.

Borno state is the epicentre of the Boko Haram and ISWA insurgency. The conflict has lasted a decade, during which time the militants have killed thousands and millions have fled from their homes in the region.
