A Naked Lie by Nemen M. Kpahn

Based on actual events, these fictitious short stories are set in postwar Liberia following the end of the civil war. A Naked Lie - The liar spoke with assurance, using common knowledge to slide the lie right in. God forbid, had it been during wartime, the accused would have died. During the civil war, many Liberians became victims because of lies. People can sometimes go to the extreme to prove their beliefs no matter what; even uncaring of the pain they could cause others. All That Matters tells the story of the overly ambitious self-made man, Garretson Biah, and the futility of the Liberian elections. Biah desired so much to become an honorable member of the House of Representatives that his fiery ambition led to his downfall; mostly due to unethical personalities with little or no substance. Jean Pierre and Kpormor is a mysterious tale of the falling apart of two very good friends, and the tragic consequences of such falling out when not properly addressed.

In the settlement along the fertile banks of the St. Paul River, Old But Not Cold is an unconventional love story between an alcoholic old man whose life had dealt cruel blows of experiments and surprises, and a jilted young woman whose unfaithful boyfriend constantly breaks her heart. Respect existence or expect resistance; the coming together of two seemingly different people shows love can strike in the least expected way to the least expected people.Sea Breeze is set in postwar Liberia when a young man succumbed to the temptations of armed robbery, and the young woman who loved his despicable characters, irrespective of being in harm's way.We Will Remember Them - In 1990, a group of armed men, members of the Armed Forces of Liberia, stormed the Lutheran Church in Sinkor, killing untold numbers of unarmed civilians. The effect one of Liberia's most notorious massacres had on one family is told from Meanyean's memory, a survivor leaving Liberia to live in Australia for good.

Excerpt: In our churches and ministries today, there is a growing need for committed and spiritual lay leadership to assist the clergy in shepherding the crowd. All Christians are called to serve in the ministry of Christ with the unique gifts they have been given by the Creator. While the clergy has their unique calling, in the rank and file of the laity, there is a tremendous reservoir that is left untapped as the church fails to foster each member’s skill set and equip them to access their full spiritual potential. This book seeks to develop a replicable model that will increase involvement of these members in the various ministries of the church. With a clear and replicable action plan, Dr. R. Evans Yancy addresses the issue of inactivity among church members and urges others to join him in his mission to enlist dedicated, committed, and equipped laity to assist with the challenges and burdens of their congregations. Christians should not miss the opportunity to lead the world in honesty, integrity, fair play, and justice. Both clergy and lay members must work together to fulfill the tenets of the Great Commission and bring new disciples to the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
