Bringing the Old with the New

Now this is how nun-chucks are supposed to be used. Believe it or not, I used to practice using nun-chucks on a regular basis when I was in high school. I don’t what it was but I got into this phase of martial arts. Confession: yes, I had the ninja stars and everything.

It is now hard to see the nun-chucks around. They have become more of the old school martial arts equipment. Therefore, when I saw this video, I couldn’t help but to get a bit nostalgic.

Then it got me thinking how I get the same feelings when we sing an old praise song from back in the day or when something from the 80’s come back in style. It is one of those feelings that tap into our lives – our backgrounds and our experiences. For some reason, the things of old help us to remember.

Maybe this is the reason why the Apostle John wrote to the church of Ephesus, “Remember the height from which you have fallen! Repent and do the things you did at first. If you do not repent, I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place” (Rev 2:4-6).
