This month’s issue is dedicated to the men and women who use their expertise to serve their communities. When I think of service, Winston Churchil and Martin Luther King Jr. come to mind. Sir Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill was a British statesman, soldier and writer. He served as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1940 to 1945, during the Second World War, and again from 1951 to 1955.

 

One of my favourite quotes by Churchill is ““We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” And this inspires me as I see sixteen men and women make a life for themselves serving as content judges in the ACABA award program for 2022. That they can curve out time to read 150 books every year from 75 nominee authors, is absolutely a blessing to the African continent.

Everybody Can Be Great. Because Anybody Can Serve…

My hope is that this issue will inspire writers, authors, readers, partners and the world at large to serve their communities in their small or big ways. As Martin Luther King Jr., an American Baptist minister and activist who became the most visible spokesman and leader in the civil rights movement from 1955 until his assassination in 1968 said, “Everybody can be great. Because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve…. You don’t have to know the second theory of thermodynamics in physics to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”

 

I express my sincerest and heartfelt gratitude to the ACABA 2022 Judges. And we charge you, our readers to start or continue with service in your community.

 

Here’s to all of us making a life for ourselves…

Appreciating Men and Women Using Their Expertise to Serve their African Continent by Judging Books

Featured Stories

From disruptive challenges in writing and publishing, to out-of-this-world perseverance to get books in the hands of readers, this issue celebrates ACABA’s 2021 awarded authors and their relentless efforts to answer God’s writing calling for them.

Books that are impacting the African continent

There are several ways that books will influence our lives in Africa. This is by giving us insight into how other people in our continent and other continents live for Jesus Christ. They also broaden our worldview and influence our thoughts on social, moral and faith issues. The more we read as a continent, the better people we become.

While we have consumed imported content in the past, this season has seen a rise in the creation of local content. Now the task lies in creating the demand for the same in an information-flooded era. It can be done and today we start with ACABA and twelve top content books and authors from Kenya and Uganda. It’s a journey of a thousand steps…Here’s the first one!
