Generosity and Sacrifice

As I was packing up to leave for the airport, I realized that I had about five cans of soda left. I ended up buying a 12-pack for the whole week. Since I cannot take it with me through the airport security, I decided to give some of it away. After dropping off the rental […]

Starbucks and Lessons on Leadership

        Yesterday for 3 hours (5:30PM to 8:30PM), all 7,100 Starbucks stores in the United States closed for a barista re-education. This equals to about 135,000 baristas getting trained or shall we say re-trained. In the last quarter, Starbucks have seen a drop in profits which has caused layoffs, the closing of […]

The Arts Breaking Through

        With New York Philharmonic going to Pyongyang, North Korea recently, it made me think once again about the importance of the Arts and Media in the whole Transformasphere Movement. I am a believer that music and the arts are universal languages. Whenever I travel, I am constantly struck with how music […]

Google Calendar for Destiny Campaign

I just signed up for prayer on various slot for the 40-Days to Destiny (40D2D) on the Google Calendar. It is going to be exciting to see many people in our church sign up for a prayer time slot. The 40-Days to Destiny will help focus the whole church (and even the alumni) to prepare […]

Faith of a Child

This morning, as I was getting ready to drive the kids to school, I couldn’t find my wallet. Then as we were driving, it dawned upon me that I lost it as the family and I were sitting down and enjoying our dessert at a mall. I was sharing with the kids how it was […]

Living and Leaving a Legacy

Abraham Piper introduced his father, John Piper at one of the Pastor’s Conferences that the Desiring God Ministries held back in February. Someone forwarded me the actual text and the video of Abraham’s introduction and it really moved me. So often when a person is a public figure (especially pastors), it is easy to fool […]

Difference in the Teaching World

I found out not too long ago that Joyce Lee, a middle school teacher, who is a member in our church received an award. She won the “Educator of the Year Award” from the Michigan Association of Middle School Educators. It was encouraging to hear because we have been trying to encourage people in our […]

Valentine’s Day Over-rated?

Christina and I are so different. Maybe this is one of the reasons why God brought us together – to humble us and make us more like His Son 🙂 We kind of have a different take on Valentine’s Day. I think it is great that there is a day where we can focus in […]

Hannah Montana Craze

On my way to the office, I was perusing through the radio waves. Then I heard this woman on the radio telling her husband that she was so unhappy in the marriage and that she wanted to divorce him. It was a live conversation over the radio. At first, I was a bit shocked. I […]

Video Reminiscing

Yesterday after enjoying Christina’s infamous Ja-Jang Myung (Black Bean Noodle… it taste better than it sounds), we all decided to watch some old videos that were recorded on a camcorder. We popped in some videos from 2003 and 2005. It was hilarious! It was amazing to see how much the kids have grown over the […]

Relationship Series for ACCESS

        It is that time of the year again. A time where there are questions, complaints, loneliness, doubts, and the list goes on and on. Whenever February 14th is around the corner and the weather gets nicer, people begin to struggle with the topic of opposite sex relationships. As I am seeing […]

Relationships and Missions

It is amazing to see the difference between the worldviews of the Islamic world and the Western world. In fact, this is one of the reasons why some people in the Islamic world hate the West so much. All the “junk” in the media (T.V. shows, pornography, Hollywood, etc) epitomizes the wanton and licentious lifestyle […]

Lenten Season 2008

Many of you probably heard by now that today is the start of Lent. Even though Lent has not been observed very much by Christ-followers, there seems to be a growing number of people who are seeing the benefits of it and are now practicing it. The Lenten season (six-weeks before Easter) is a time […]

An Alumni Blessing

It is always good to reconnect with our HMCC alumni. There are times when I wonder if some of the graduates from our church are living a life of transformation. Ever since the start of our church, we have always been committed to “transforming lives and transforming the world.” This is why it is always […]
