Pep Talk to Finish

I just had a conversation with my GCTS professor, Dr. Tim Tennent. I am trying to finish off my dissertation for my doctor of ministry degree. In order for me to graduate in May 2008, I really need to start writing – A LOT. With any major goal in life, it is always helpful to […]

BBQ Time

As the weather is getting nicer, our family decided to have a bar-b-que tonight. I always have the honor of cooking on the grill. The kids think it just tastes better when daddy cooks it 🙂 When I don’t have to speak on a Friday night, it gives me more time to spend with the […]

Human Depravity

I am being more assured about the Christian doctrine of the depravity of humankind that the Reformers so eloquently described for us throughout history. There are some articles online for you to read by R.C. Sproul, John Piper, and Jonathan Edwards. Yesterday, on Karissa’s last day of school, I dropped her off and walked inside […]

Signs of Stagnation

In 1980’s Erwin M. Soukup compiled a list in which he calls “The Seven Steps to Stagnation.” By now, some of these statements are very familiar in the corporate world, as well as in many organizations that are trying to bring change. The 7 steps are:      1) We’ve never done it that way before.      2) […]

Revolutionary Transformation

I don’t think any of the revolutions in history have occurred without some form of opposition. In fact, in any “change” or process of transformation there will always be opposition. If this was not the case, then so many things in the world will be transformed by now. This is why revolutions and the work […]

Running Club

In the boys’ school, they have a running club where the kids have a choice of going to their 2nd recess in the afternoon or participate in the running club. Both, Josiah and Elliot, decided to participate. Anyone who ran over 100 miles for the 2006-2007 school year got a trophy. Elliot and Josiah were […]

Through the Generations of the Kim Family

Today, I went to one of Karissa’s teacher’s retirement party. Mrs. McDonough has been teaching the pre-primary Montessori class for 15+ years. She and Mrs. Duneske (the other teacher) have been teaching together for 15 years. They were Josiah’s teachers as well as Elliot’s. It was pretty awesome to see students and families that had […]

Our Readiness

This week has been a weird week so far. Just in the last couple of days, there have been several tragedies to hit the Michigan community. First, the sudden death of Rhonda Hart, Detroit’s Christian radio personality on WMUZ sent shockwaves within the Christian community. Secondly, a team of University of Michigan Health System died […]

Impact through Photography

I have been mentioning a lot about the arts and media and how that platform can be used to bring transformation. Sometimes it is hard to believe it or even see it when we are limited in our scope or interactions with people who are trying to make a difference in this field. I want […]

The Gospel in Spiderman 3

Christina and I were able to spend some time together yesterday. After a quiet dinner alone (someone was gracious enough to watch the kids for us), we watched Spiderman 3 on the IMAX theater. The movie was “just ok” (sorry Spidey fans). But one thing that I have been saying for some time now is […]

T-Ball Season

We went to Elliot’s first T-Ball game. It was fun watching these 7 year old kids trying to hit the ball off a tee… their throwing and their attempt at catching the ball were hilarious. I guess this is how all kids start off. Since Elliot has pretty good eye-hand coordination, baseball is working out […]

Jacket Illustration

I think I need to set the record straight so that there is no misunderstanding of what happened this past Sunday during my message. As I was meditating on the passage (Mt 22:1-14) in my preparation, I wanted to come up with an illustration that would highlight the point about having the “right” wedding robe […]

The 10K Experience

I will first just give a quick overview in terms of what happened today and then later on, I will give more of an extensive reflection of my experience at the 10K. We did not get off to a great start. When we arrived at the starting station, it started to drizzle and then it […]
