Video Encouragement

This morning I opened up my inbox to find a link to a video. I clicked on to it and waited for it to download. I wasn’t sure what to expect because it was titled, “ripples.” But as I watched the video it moved me and encouraged me. A small group in our church decided […]

Coffee/Tea Shops

I found my new coffee/tea place. It is called Argo Tea in Evanston, IL. It first opened in 2003, but now it has 6 locations all over Chicago. I need to convince the owners to come to Ann Arbor and other college campuses. You have to try the “soy latte with red tea” – it […]

Punctuation Series

      This coming Sunday we will be starting a new series called, “Punctuation” both in Ann Arbor and Chicago. As I read various books and articles, I never really paused to think about all the punctuations – the question mark, the period, the comma, and the exclamation point. But if you think about […]

A Whirlwind Month

Today is the last day of January 2007. Yesterday, I was doing some reflection on this month and I realized that this has been probably one of the busiest months ever. I am finally getting back into the regular schedule of things. Most of February and March will be used to focus on things here […]

The Fun of Monotony

With all the snowfall here in Ann Arbor, the boys and I went sledding today after dinner. There is a hill near our house which gets populated with people once a snowfall hits. It gets pretty crazy out there. Kids are not complicated. They can go up and down a hill and have the time […]

The Marathon Weekend

After going 3 days with little or no sleep, I think my body said, “enough is enough.” I crashed out at my parents’ place and slept for 10 hours straight. I think the drive back to Ann Arbor from the retreat took a toll on my body. But it was gratifying to know that God […]

HMCC of Chicago Retreat Update 3

The retreat finished off well. I couldn’t help but to go through memory lane as I was reflecting on our first retreat in this Chicago church plant. It is hard to believe that it has been close to 10 years since the first retreat in Ann Arbor. God did some great things with the small […]

HMCC of Chicago Retreat Update 2

This morning there was a special visitation from the Lord during our opening morning worship. I really sensed that the Holy Spirit was working in the hearts of people as we were singing some of the songs. We just naturally busted out in some time of prayer and allowed the Holy Spirit to minister to […]

HMCC of Chicago Retreat Update 1

We finished off our first night. It was encouraging to see various people come out for this retreat. In the beginning it was a bit of a slow start, but towards the end of the night we pressed through. I think the breakthrough moment was when we had people break up into pairs and speak […]

1st Retreat for HMCC of Chicago

I have always been a firm believer that the first of everything is very important. In fact, they are like markers in our journey of life. I am going to be heading out to Chicago tomorrow morning, along with our worship team to lead the first HMCC of Chicago retreat. I am so stoked about […]

NexGen Business Leaders

I just came back from a meeting at Starbucks with three HMCC members. Usually these multi-people meetings are for only one purpose – due to their fear of meeting with Pastor Seth alone they come in groups… I guess there is safety in numbers 🙂 But this group was special. They were all business school […]

A Purpose in Everything

Over 10 years of doing campus ministry, one question that people keep on asking me is, “Why did God allow _____ to happen to me?” It is hard to give a complete theological answer to a person who is feeling the pain and frustration of unanswered questions and doubts. There is a phrase that we […]

Reading Update

Best vacation in the world? Grab a bunch of books and read it by a beach side as the ocean wind is blowing in your hair. Hmm… possibly. Well, I think being in a crowded airplane at 27,000 feet in the air will have to do for the meantime. I do everything I can to […]
