Running Club

Author: sethskim  |  Category: Various

In the boys’ school, they have a running club where the kids have a choice of going to their 2nd recess in the afternoon or participate in the running club. Both, Josiah and Elliot, decided to participate.

Anyone who ran over 100 miles for the 2006-2007 school year got a trophy. Elliot and Josiah were determined to reach their goal.

Today they were rewarded for their efforts.

Now they want to run the 10K and beat daddy’s time.

Through the Generations of the Kim Family

Today, I went to one of Karissa’s teacher’s retirement party. Mrs. McDonough has been teaching the pre-primary Montessori class for 15+ years. She and Mrs. Duneske (the other teacher) have been teaching together for 15 years. They were Josiah’s teachers as well as Elliot’s.

It was pretty awesome to see students and families that had them over the years show up to honor her on this special day – some of the kids are now in high school.

I think this is one of the joys of the teaching profession – being able to make an impact on the lives of people who will later grow up to make a difference in this world.

We are so blessed to have had the boys go through her class and Karissa to at least experience one year of her teaching.

I was thinking – what would it be like to pastor some of our members’ children and grandchildren in the future – Wow!

It is great to have consistency with the same teachers over the last 7 years

Our Readiness

This week has been a weird week so far. Just in the last couple of days, there have been several tragedies to hit the Michigan community. First, the sudden death of Rhonda Hart, Detroit’s Christian radio personality on WMUZ sent shockwaves within the Christian community.

Secondly, a team of University of Michigan Health System died when their plane crashed in Lake Michigan. The two surgeons, two donor specialists and two pilots were on a mission to receive an organ from Milwaukee and to bring it back to University of Michigan for a transplant operation. Their stories caught national headlines and more of the facts were disseminated on the University of Michigan webpage.

Once in awhile in my morning commutes, I would listen to the “John and Rhonda Morning Show.” Rhonda had a love for life and her compassion was expressed through her comments on the radio.

I also found out that some of the people on the plane that crashed were believers and one of the organ specialist’s daughter went to Elliot’s and Josiah’s school.

In light of all these death’s, albeit that I did not know them personally, made me think about how life is short and we do not know when God will call us home.

This is the challenge for all of us – “Are we living today as if it is our last?”

How will people remember us?

It has always been said that you can always tell how a person lived their life by their funeral.
