What if the image you project results in others judging you incorrectly?

The sixth meeting of Godllywood's 12 Parts of Me programme began with different optical illusions projected onto a screen while a judge sat solemnly at a podium with a wooden gavel, ready to pass judgement on the person in front of her. Themed 'what if..?' the group of professional women were asked to describe what they saw in the different images. Predictably some saw flowers, birds flying, a farm, a Mexican scene or two rampant horses, while others saw images of faces.

UCKG's second Love Walk encourages couples to communicate - Universal Church of the Kingdom of God
UCKG's second Love Walk encourages couples to communicate

The second Love Walk, held in Johannesburg and Cape Town, offered thousands of married, engaged and dating couples an opportunity to spend quality time together and learn to communicate effectively without fear of fighting. Marriage, which should be a life-long journey, cannot be successful unless both husband and wife communicate clearly. Relationships often become distant because of misunderstandings and a lack of meaningful dialogue. With daily pressures demanding time and attention, many couples talk about superficial things: 'how was your day?', 'fine thank you', but do not dialogue at deeper levels, so fail to agree on important issues and drift apart. This is one cause of the high divorce rate in South Africa which has devastating consequences for families and society.
