Sad Day in Wisconsin

After the evening worship service was over, I went to my room to check the score of the Bulls and Pistons game. It was a sad evening. Well, the positive thing is that the Bulls have a lot to build upon for next year. For some reason this reminded me a lot of the rivalry […]

CCUC Retreat Update 1

Recently, instead of the typical 2 or 3 point sermon, I have been just using one point to help people to apply God’s Word in their lives. At this retreat I have been focusing on the importance of transformation within our lives. One avenue for transformation is a life of worship. This morning, I talked […]

Running With the Right Music

I have finally found the right music to run with today. It was so obvious that it did not cross my mind. I have tried techno music to pump me up, but it wasn’t doing it for me. I tried Christian music but I felt like I had to preach soon. I even tried love […]

The Asian-American Journey

It is really interesting how CNN is doing a special on the Asian-American Journey on their website. It is estimated that there are close to 13.5 million people from the Asian descent living in the United States. Asian-Americans go through some unique struggles compared to some of the other major minorities in the States. One […]

Retreats and Conferences in May

The worship team and I will be heading out to a Chinese Christian Union Church (CCUC) college retreat starting tomorrow. One of the encouraging things about working on a college campus is being connected to so many people. Once students graduate and go to various places around the world, there is an instant network that […]

Bulls Making History

It has been said that no team has come back from a 3-0 deficit to win a NBA playoff series. Well, it is 3-2 right now (after tonight’s game) and heading back to Chicago. First of all, all these Pistons fans here in Ann Arbor are giving me a hard time for rooting for the […]

Observation at O’Hare Airport

As a semi-sociologist, I enjoy watching people and various situations. Usually in airports, I am in a hurry trying to get from one place to another that I miss out on some of the interactions that happen on a daily basis. Today, I left my wallet in my dad’s car and I had to wait […]

Mother’s Day 2007

Christina and I woke up at 3:30AM on Sunday early morning to get ready for our 6AM flight. I was in a dilemma – I knew if I slept that I would never get up, therefore I ended up staying up for most of the night. We were originally planning on having a Mother’s Day […]

The Food Tour

After the summit, Pastor Young, Pastor Bruce and I (all three of our wives included) went out to the city to just hang out. We did this amazing food tour. We started off with some Korean ribs with cold buckwheat noodle dish. Then Pastor Bruce insisted that we try this incredible Chinese dumpling… so off […]

AMI Leadership Summit Reflections

We finished off the summit this afternoon. I think many of the participants would agree with me and say that this was one of the better conferences in AMI. Just having Reggie McNeil with us and even affirm what we are doing as AMI was huge. It was a tremendous confirmation of what God is […]

Sessions with Reggie McNeil

Wow! There are just some people who stretch your mind and challenge you in such a way that it is refreshing – Reggie McNeil is one of those guys. The sessions with him have been top-notched. I wish all our church members were here to listen to this man. He is one of the better […]

Meeting Up with Friends

One great thing about this conference is the opportunity to reconnect with friends and relationships that have been built up over the years. There were two brothers that I have met in India who are here at this conference. It was great to spend some time with them. God is doing some things in India. […]

Platinum is Better Than Gold

I was waiting for Christina to arrive from Ann Arbor last night. But she kept on calling from the airport saying that the flight was delay due to a fuel leak. Then towards the start of the summit, she called again and said that the pilot could not fly because he has reached the maximum […]

First Night of the Summit

Yesterday, all throughout the morning we had the ordination and licensure candidate interviews. It brought back a lot of memories for me. I remember going through my ordination interview – it was pretty nerve racking. I wanted to make sure that I did not do what some of the older pastors did to me – […]
