The Marriage Curve

Yesterday, I was reminded of something in our Covenant small group (our married couples group). We are currently going over biblical principles of how to build a strong marriage. Let me digress for a second… I have been telling the single people in our church that getting married is the easy part but building a […]

Single Adults or Young Adults

As I travel to different parts of the world, I am realizing how America is greatly influencing the world. Of course, we need to note that not all of the influences are good. Even though we are influencing the world in various ways, with some level of humility, we have to acknowledge that there are […]


One thing I have learned over the years is that sometimes ministry and criticism go hand in hand. There have been many times when someone in our leadership team has said, “Pastor, did you hear about what this person said about our church?” or “Pastor, do you know what someone said about you?” If I […]

Getting a Second Opinion

My dad just recently went through eye surgery for his cataract. If truth be told, he should have dealt with this eye problem 10 years ago. But for various reasons, he decided to hold off until it got too unbearable. When he went into the ophthalmologist to remove the cataract, the doctor mentioned that since […]

Lessons From “24”

I have to admit that I was a late-comer to the TV show “24”. My first thought was who in the world would waste their precious time to watch a show about a person’s life, one hour at a time. It did not make sense to me. But after some coaxing and in the name […]

Jury Duty

If there is a spiritual gift for getting picked for jury duty, I would have it. This is my 3rd time. In the previous 2 times I was not selected to sit as a juror, but this time around I had the magic number. It started off with about 50+ of us in a jury […]

Blinded by Hypocrisy and Inconsistency

The Webster’s dictionary defines the word, “hypocrisy” as “a feigning to be what one is not or to believe what one does not.” Also, it defines the word “inconsistency” as “not compatible with another fact or claim.” I don’t have to say much about the hypocrisy and the inconsistency in the lives of Christians today. […]

The Cinderella Final Four

I don’t know about you, but I love underdogs. The 2006 NCAA tournament’s final four is made up of some underdogs. For the first time since 1980 (this is just the 2nd time in the history of the NCAA Tournament), none of the four top-seeded teams advanced to the final four. Instead, we have UCLA, […]

A Peculiar People (1 Pe 2:9)

Last week (Thursday through Saturday), I had the opportunity to speak at the AMI Young Adult Conference held in the East Coast. All the East Coast churches did a great job of preparing for the conference (RWC, GCC, TRPC and ACC). It was a great time of connecting with some of the young adults and […]

The Best Day Ever

This week was the boys’ Winter Breaks, therefore Christina and I decided that it would be good for me to spend time with the boys. We spent a whole day together. It was packed with kids’ size activities – Chuck E. Cheese, lunch, glow in the dark miniature golfing, Curious George movie, dinner and spending […]

Men’s Breakfast

I just came back from a men’s breakfast meeting. The gathering was for the adult and young adult men in our church. We had a hearty man-size meal comprised of: eggs, sausages, bacon, French toast, waffles, cereals, fruits, juices and coffee! What was the agenda? Simply: to impart spiritual truths to the men in HMCC […]

Invisible Children

I am amazed at how much we have become a global village. The development of technology is allowing us to connect with people from different parts of the world instantaneously. We are no longer an island unto ourselves. So if something happens in another part of the world, even though we are thousands of miles […]

Represented vs. Reality

In our politically correct world, Islam is known as a peaceful religion – this is how it is represented by the media, by the Administration, and by the adherents. But I am wondering if this is the reality. In Peshawar, Pakistan, an imam by the name of Mohammed Yousaf Qureshi announced that the Mohabat Khan […]

Chocolates and Roses

Ahh yes! Out of all the 365 days in a year, today the retail store will cash in on the concept of love. The chocolate and flower industries will be making millions of dollars. Chocolates and flowers are supposed to be a token or expression of our love for someone. I am wondering if there […]
