AMI Revolution 2008 Update 1

So far the conference has been going well. It has been good worshipping together with people who have the same spirit when it comes to praise. I spoke the first night on God’s glory is God’s mission. This morning we hear from Pastor Ulysses from Remnant Presbyterian Church on learning how to stand with your convictions. The next two nights we will hear from Dr. Steve Lee. We finally had some Philly Cheesesteak last night....

AMI Revolution 2008

I am out in Philadelphia now for the AMI Revolution Conference for college students. A lot of the AMI pastors came out early to pray together and to prepare for this conference. This is our 4th year doing this conference and we have seen God work in great way in the past. Now, we are praying that God will do a fresh work in our hearts and in our churches. It is going to be...

Brickworld Exhibit

We are spending a few days in Chicago before we head back to Ann Arbor. We found out about an exhibit that Brickworld was sponsoring. I believe it is one of the largest Lego exhibition in the States. Therefore, on Saturday we decided to check it out. They had some incredible Lego creations. They were literally awe-inspiring. You can see all the intricacies and details that go into making a design. The kids loved it....

Pictures from Our 2008 Vacation

Here are a few pictures from our mini-vacation with our family and some other close pastors’ family. It was a great time of reconnecting and seeing all the kids play together. We are still waiting for all the pictures that Dr. Steve took. I think he took close to about 4,000 pictures… he was a photo-machine.         Elliot and KiKi enjoying the pool         JoJo got introduced to Guitar...

Back From the Break

Our family and five other pastors’ family got back yesterday from spending a few days together in Wisconsin. It was great to hang out with friends that I have known since college; and for some of them, I have known since high school. We were like one big happy family! It is a great joy seeing our kids playing together and growing up together. In our generation we have built some great bonds of friendship...

Blogosphere Check-Out 06.16.08

I am spending some time with my family and some of my close friends and their families for several days. Then I will be heading out to Chicago for a little bit to spend time with our extended families. I have made a promise to Christina that I will not be working on my blog or other things that might distract me from giving my 100% to her and the kids. I want to honor...

Birthday and Father’s Day

Today was an extra bonus day. The family and I celebrated not only my birthday but also Father’s Day. I am truly an undeserving man – not only has the Lord blessed me with life but with an awesome family who love me and care for me. My kids each ended up making and writing separate birthday cards for me. It was moving to read what they expressed from their hearts. They are precious. During...

Jon and Rebecca’s Wedding

It was great to have the privilege of doing Jon and Rebecca’s wedding yesterday. This is probably our first inter-racial marriage (outside of the pan-Asian ethnicity) in our church. It was awesome to see how they were able to go “transcultural” and unite together because of Christ. It was also great to see all the old faces, as well as some of the other single adults in our church. Pastor Andrew and Nickey were stuck...

Renovation Sermon Series

        The topic of change and transformation has been coming up a lot in my meetings with people. I have also been personally reflecting a lot on this topic as well. I think all of us in our honest moments would confess that we are not where we want to be. There are areas of our lives where we need more transformation. We need a real renovation of our mind, heart, and...

Boys’ Hang Time

Yesterday, the boys and I hung out together, while Christina and Karissa went out. I like it when it is just the boys day/night out. For some reason, we feel like we have a license to eat more unhealthy and do more crazy stuff as just the guys… I don’t know what it is 🙂 We first went to a local Starbucks to read and take care of things. As the boys were reading, I...

Jesus and His Wife?

As many of you know, I was not brought up in the church; therefore when I would hear about some of the crazy stories about elders and deacons fighting with each other with knives on the church lawn, it was unfathomable and made me more cynical about the Church. When I heard about people criticizing other churches about various doctrinal issues, it just didn’t make sense to me. It wasn’t until I was in the...

How Much Sleep Do We Really Need?

Type A personalities always see sleep as a necessary evil. With so much to do, the thought of sleeping part of their day away does not seem like a good use of time. But we all know that sleep does play a part in our mood and our effectiveness throughout the day. But how much sleep do we really need? People have argued that it is different for people. Awhile back, I discovered that my...

Church Pirates

When I came across this video, it was refreshing to hear a well respected church leader share his thoughts so frankly. I think in the church we have also become so PC (politically correct) that we are afraid of offending anybody. But the reality is that truth sometimes is hard to hear and even harder to accept. There are many people today who are trying to start up churches – which is a great thing...

Training New Leaders?

Not too long ago, someone forwarded me a video interview with Bill Taylor, who did some research on the internet shoe company, Zappos.com. I was pretty fascinated by this interview because of the title. Now you have to admit that a video titled, “Why Zappos Pays New Employees to Quit?” should draw anyone’s attention. They are doing some radical things to promote their DNA and continue their quality control, which comes down to customer service....
