2007 Lent Reflections – Day 8

We are truly creatures of habit. It is amazing how we do so many things in life out of habit. There have been many times when I started driving out of my home and then only to find myself driving in the wrong direction. I start going down a certain road because that is the […]

Thoughts on “The Big Moo”

      I really enjoyed reading Seth Godin’s book, The Big Moo. The subtitle of this book is: Stop Trying to Be Perfect and Start Being Remarkable. I think the desire to be remarkable is built in to every human being because it touches on the issue of significance. We all want to make […]

Twist of Irony in Parenting

There has always been a philosophy when it comes to parenting or shall I say that there is a saying – “If you were wild as a kid, then you will be more strict when you are a parent; and if you were sheltered as a kid, you will be more loose as a parent.” […]

Narcissism on the Rise

I just received a forwarded CNN article (click here to read it). You will have to read the article in order to make sense of my entry. Sometimes there are some redeeming factors when a secular news media confirms something that we have been saying for some time now. This brings us to the issue […]

Guys and Silence

If you are a guy, I don’t know if you have ever been accused of not being talkative while you are eating. Christina always reminds me to slow down because I eat too fast. I think it was all the Alpha Omega days (gospel band I was a part of in college). We had to […]

Time with My Boys

My time with the boys was a blast. There is something about just hanging out with the guys that bring out a certain side of the male gender. We ate all the food that Christina would not normally let us eat (shhh!). We did a little glow-in the dark miniature golfing, swimming, Chuck E. Cheese, […]

Earlier Flight

When I talked with a NWA’s reservation agent to see if I can get on an earlier flight, they said that all the flights were booked solid. Since Chicago and Detroit had bad weather, they had to cancel a lot of flights and rebook people on the Monday flights. Therefore, I thought I would not […]

BJ’s & Taboo

Right after the Sunday Celebration in Chicago, I met up with a small group from Ann Arbor. One of small group leaders made an appointment awhile back wanting me to meet up with his small group. Since it is Spring Break for UM students, his small groups came out to Chicago to hang out. We […]

Entering NU Campus

Yesterday was a crucial “Yea God” moment as we had our first Sunday Celebration in an auditorium on the Northwestern University Campus. It was humbling to think that God showed us His favor and open this door for us. We are now right in the center of the campus. It has been truly an answer […]

The Story of Amazing Grace

I ended up watching the movie, Amazing Grace in the theater today. It was a powerful and moving story about William Wilberforce, a politician in the parliamentary who helped bring an end to the slave trade in England. It is stories like these that remind me of the importance of Christians faithfully living out their […]

Men’s Meeting

I just came back from a breakfast meeting with some men in the leadership of our church. Right away they learned two lessons: 1) Be a man of your word – 7:53AM is 7:53AM 2) Learn to give grace to people 🙂 We had some good discussions on King David’s Mighty Men in 2 Samuel […]

Default Mode Decisions

Today a realization came to me. I realized that there are so many people that live their lives in the default mode (I catch myself doing it all the time). The dictionary defines, “default” as: a) Failure to act; inaction or neglect; b) Failure to perform a task or fulfill an obligation; c) Failure to […]

HMCC’s Mighty Men

I am reminded of King David’s mighty men in the Bible. In 2 Samuel 23, we get a glimpse of these men – they were warriors. In our culture today, we have feminized men in such a way that we are not living up to our destiny. There are times when we are afraid to […]

Teary Trailer

This is the only movie trailer in my lifetime that made my eyes misty. I don’t know what the movie critics have said about this movie, but I love movies that are based on true stories, especially stories that highlight how one person transformed the world. Opening day is tomorrow. I am pumped!
