Saying Good-Bye

This afternoon I met up with one of our church members. The person sent me an e-mail about wanting to meet up before they left for their new job position in another city. Even though life is busy, whenever it is one of those “last” meetings, I try to make it a priority to meet […]

Funeral Procession

Today, as I was studying at Panera Bread I glanced out the window and notice a funeral procession. I don’t know how many cars were part of the procession but I counted at least 30 cars. This got me thinking. I have always told our church members that you know how a person lived their […]

Conclusion of “Our Journey” Series

        Tomorrow, we will be concluding our Sunday Sermon series called, “Our Journey.” It has been helpful to look at the life of Moses and see how God was authoring the salvation story through a man who had his fair share of weaknesses. But isn’t this the testimony of so many people, […]

2008 H-Games

        Tomorrow we are going to have our annual H-Games as a whole church. This is one event that all the different lifestages come together for. I enjoy it because this is where we can have some great fellowship and fun together as a church. It is interesting to see some of […]

Faith and God’s Honor

Recently, in some of my reflections and meditations, I have been thinking a lot about the relationship between God’s glory and faith. I have been trying to wrestle with the idea that somehow God receives a lot of glory and praise when His people live a life of faith. Faith is a crazy thing. When […]

Child Protégé and Training

I am always inspired by kids who seem to have a natural talent or gift for something. It is incredible to see how they can use their gifts at that particular age. In fact, someone forwarded me one of Oprah’s shows on the World’s Smartest Kids on the internet. It is truly fascinating. So this […]

Why People Procrastinate

Bob Alexander in his article, “Why People Procrastinate,” shares his insights on why people procrastinate. He starts off by giving “A Procrastinator’s Creed.” Alexander shares that it might be one or all of the following: 1) I firmly believe if I ignore something long enough it will cease to exist. 2) Anything worth doing is […]

Heroes T.V. Series

        I have never watched a single episode of Heroes, until tonight. Today was the big premiere of season three. Christina has always been a fan of this T.V. series; therefore I decided to join her tonight. I would always hear about how good this series is from her and other people, […]

Singaporean Skype

Early this morning (at 3:15AM), I was able to Skype with some of the former HMCC alumni. The marvels of modern technology! It was great reconnecting with them and also meeting a couple of new Singaporeans that some of our alumni had relationships with. As we are seeing more international students graduate from UM (and […]

A Rare Treat

I was able to spend the whole evening with the family on a Friday night! This is one of the few times in the 12 year history of our church. Normally, I would have to be at our Friday night gathering, but we had the LIFE Groups hang out together. This freed me up and […]

Reflections in a Cemetery

Today, I decided to stop by a cemetery. Sometimes I get these weird inspirations to do something out of the ordinary. I realized that over the years in my journey with Christ, I have always found cemeteries to be sobering and fascinating. I think cemeteries are some of the most peaceful places to reflect and […]

Ear Piercing

My baby girl got her ears pierced today. Awhile back we asked Karissa what she wanted for her birthday and without hesitation she said, “I want my ears pierced!” So after talking it through with Christina, we decided to go for it. The “recommended” time for kids to get their ears pierced vary, but people […]

Twitter Resurrection

It has been about a year since I signed up for my Twitter account. I have mostly used it to keep in touch with a handful of friends (some who are overseas). It has been a great way to just keep in touch with what is going on with our lives on a regular basis. […]

Multi-Site Conference in Chicago

DJ Chuang, from Leadership Network was gracious enough to invite me to the Multi-Site Exposed Conference, which was being hosted by New Life Church in Chicago. Since I was already in Chicago for the UIC inaugural celebration, I decided to check it out. They had a great line of speakers such as Mark Jobe and […]
