Remembering a Great Evangelical Leader

  Photo on crosswalk.com     Hebrews 13:7 says, “Remember your leaders, who spoke the word of God to you. Consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith.” Tim Keller did a great job of giving a tribute to John R.W. Stott during the memorial in Wheaton, IL. It is sad to see many people in this younger generation who do not know the life of John Stott and all the...

Lessons from Two Great Coaches

      On Tuesday, November 15th 2011 history was made. Mike Krzyzewski (affectionately known as Coach K), the coach for the Duke Blue Devils became the winningest coach in the history of NCAA’s Division 1 Men’s Basketball with a win over Michigan State in New York. In the midst of all the celebration and congratulations, one scene caught my attention. The coach who held the previous record, Bobby Knight was broadcasting the game. Right...

Amazing Grace and It’s Roots

  As many of you know, the song writer for “Amazing Grace” was John Newton, a former slave trader. But many people might not know that the melody of the song was possibly based on an African spiritual. Wintley Phipps gives an explanation on the history of the song, which was very enlightening. It is amazing how God weaves things together for His glory. For those of you who love music, enjoy!

This is Courage

  When we are in a comfortable and familiar territory, it is easy to think that we are living radically. But the reality is that we can only measure the true level of our courage when we are in enemy territory facing hostile conditions. Sometimes we can be fooled into thinking that we are living radically for Christ, as we stay within the four walls of the church. But when we live radically in the...

Austin Update – 10.2011

  In the last 3 years, I have been to Austin many times. It is always a joy to come down to Texas to 80 degree weather when it is in the 40’s in Ann Arbor. But more than the weather, it is a privilege to come to Austin and spend some time with Pastor Ben and his family, as well as with the HMCC of Austin family. This was a special retreat and as...

My Recent Reflections 10.2011

  Photo on fotothing.com       “Stay Humble. Stay Hungry. Stay Honorable.” Recently, as I was driving home after one of the pre-retreat prayers gatherings, I felt like God dropped this phrase in my heart. It wasn’t anything dramatic, but it was something that pierced my heart and hit me in a profound way. In fact, this phrase is something I would love to continue to live by as long as I live. The...

Epic College Retreat 2011

  Photo from flickr.com       It is hard to believe that HMCC in Ann Arbor has had a retreat every year in the last 15 years. After several years of growth, we started to have a retreat just for the college students. As I reflect back on the various retreats we have had in our church’s history, all I can conclude is that God has been faithful in transforming lives. It is at...

Abortion and the Holocaust

  Photo from greaterthings.com       Abortion has been a topic that many Christ-followers have remained silent on over the years. The cultural milieu has made it difficult for pro-life proponents to speak up in public against this atrocity. Also, I think one major contributing factor for the silence is that there are a lot of Christ-followers who have had an abortion. If you then add to this, a culture of shame and a...

Reflecting Back on 15 Years

  We had a wonderful time at the 15th Anniversary Celebration. It was beautiful to see how God has faithfully led us, as a church for the past 15 years. God was not only faithful, but He has been writing an incredible story of transformation. There have been so many people who came to Christ for the first time in our church. There have been numerous people who have experienced true freedom through the power...
