Staff Conference and Technology

We gave it a try for the first time at our last staff meeting – we held our staff meeting via video conference. Since some of the staff members were in Chicago, we decided to maximize the technology and the time that we had. There is still some tweaking that we need to do, but […]

Partnership at Work

Dr. Steve Lee sent some pictures about their progress in the building of the income-generating projects like the mortuary for the hospital. They have laid the foundations down and the mortuary building will probably go up soon. It is exciting to see the partnership at work. I just wanted to thank you guys at HMCC […]

Karissa’s 3rd B-Day

Yesterday we celebrated KiKi’s b-day. A rule we have in our family is that the birthday person can choose whatever restaurant they want to go to on their b-day. She chose Macaroni Grill. After dinner, we opened up her presents. It is amazing how a 3 year old mind works. She knows that this is […]

Subtle Influence

On the plane ride from DTW to ORD, I was flanked by two women. The one on my left was an older woman probably in her 50’s or 60’s (Lord, forgive me if I am wrong). The one on my right was probably in her early to mid-20’s. They both pulled out magazines to read […]

Raising the Water Level

Yesterday, while I was still in Chicago, I had an opportunity to meet one of the local pastors in Evanston. I really didn’t know what to expect because from the last couple of meetings with other pastors and church leaders, I did not receive a warm welcome – to put it bluntly, they were a […]

NU Church Plant Update – 9.10.06

When we heard the announcement by the flight attendant, I knew that we were in trouble. They canceled the flight to Chicago! We quickly lined up to see a Northwest agent to get rebooked onto another flight. After many calls to the pastors in Chicago and to Christina (she became my pseudo airline reservation specialist), […]

Games People Play Series

    We are going to start a new series tomorrow called, “Games People Play.” You can learn so much about life from board games like Trivial Pursuit, Monopoly and Life. It reveals our passions, our desires and even our goals. Trivial Pursuit is the first on the docket. Sometimes a lot of our pursuits […]

626 Mandate and Kids

Our family got together this evening to pray for the 626 Mandate. We signed up for Saturdays at 7:30PM. As we were getting ready to pray, one thought was running through my mind – how in the world are we going to get a 9 year old, 6 year old, and a 2.9 year old […]

His House Series

    The pastoral staff and I are pretty stoked to start this new series on Fridays called, “His House.” We are going to study the Book of First Corinthians. As we will be celebrating our 10th year anniversary in October, we are just in a stage where we need to hear from God through […]

Doctors and Ice Cream Makers

This past weekend at our married couples retreat, Josiah got stung on the hand by several hornets while we were all canoeing (his canoe ended up near a hornet’s nest). It didn’t seem that bad until we saw his hand the next day. It was inflamed and began to turn red, so we hurried into […]

Brotherly Love

This is an inspiring story. If you have time, read this article about a brother (plays football at Clemson) who decided to take care of his younger brother because their mother is a drug addict and their father is addicted to gambling. “This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his […]

NU Church Plant Update – 9.3.06

This update was posted by Pastor Jimmy while Pastor Seth attended a married couples retreat. The date of our inaugural service is getting closer and closer – 3 weeks now! Each Sunday, the anticipation of what’s to come has been building. In some ways, it feels like the calm before the storm, or when you […]

Dying With Passion

The recent passing away of Steve Irwin, affectionately known to animal lovers as “Crocodile Hunter,” brought something to my mind. Even though I am not much of an animal lover, there was something about the Crocodile Hunter that impressed me. I remember seeing him on TV one time and thinking to myself, “This guy is […]

Not a Good Way to Start

With a nudge and an exclamation of “OH my God” from Christina, I jumped out of bed. The whole Kim family woke up late! Christina and I rushed to get the kids to school – but they were all late. This is not a good way to start the first day of school for the […]
