Money, Mission and Ministry

M

Currently in the process of raising support to be part of the IT team in OMF Headquarters.  Jotting a few thoughts, reflections and emotions. I can still remember the shock and impossible feeling when the OMF missionary told me about this role and it was a non pay role.  Aka.  I have to raise my own support OR God has to open up the supplies for me to go.  That was in February...

Possessions, Culture and Missions

P

This post has been accumulation of my thoughts…tonight, taking the subway back home, I was reading Transforming Culture: A Challenge for Christian Mission by Sherwood Lingenfelter.  The book is about the dangers when sharing the Gospel to another people group we sometimes inevitably include our own culture. One particular experience struck me…. ..a missionary complained bitterly...

Money Matters

“I continually find it necessary to guard against that natural love of wealth and grandeur which prompts us always, when we come to apply our general doctrine to our own case, to claim an exception.” William Wilberforce I was looking for a quote from William Wilberforce about doing nothing in the face of evil is an action as well when I stumbled upon this. I thought the quote is quite meaningful...

Justice and Money

J

Taken from my friend’s blog…which she took it from an article written by Tim Keller: However, many people have imbibed not only an emotional resonance for rights and justice from our culture, but also a consumerism that undermines self-denial and delayed gratification. While they may give some of their time, they spend large amounts of money on entertainment, their appearance...

Lifestyle Living and Kingdom Living

I will do a summary on my experience at St Jamestown Short Term Mission trip later….this has been on my mind for the past two weeks and I need to jot it down.  Perhaps seeing the poverty at St Jamestown trigger this post even more so. This morning I have been eye-ing on the passage Matthew 13 when Jesus uses parables to describe the Kingdom… The kingdom of heaven is like treasure...

Five Hundred Dollars

Starcraft 2 is a computer game that came out earlier this week.  If you are into computer gaming and real time strategy, this is by far one of the most exciting news for a long time.  People are lining up over night, pre-order to get a hold of this game. I really like the original.  In highschool, I will play it all the time.  Even after so many years, I still play Starcraft...

Lightweight living

I read this article a few days ago.  It is about a couple who after coming from a long hike and realized there were a lot of things in their life they don’t need. What do you do with things you don’t need?  You chuck it out. This is what they did.  They started to give away their possessions and realized there is a lot that they don’t need to live.  The...

Nuts!

This story has nothing related to my post…but since this is my blog, I get to write what I want :)..I thought this is quite a serious and funny story to share. In World War Two, one of the biggest battle fought was the Battle of Bastogne. It was in December 1944 when Germany launch one of their last counter attack against the Allies. The German Army encircled a number of paratroopers (the...

Reflection

Fairchild TV is a Chinese TV station in Canada. On Saturday, they are doing a story on me, my liver transplant at Sick Kids and my triathlon and ‘athletic’ achievements. I use the term athletic loosely as after all the triathlons I completed, I still do not consider myself as an athlete. For the coming interview, they asked me to invite my friends and my family to come and share my...

Not just doing good things…

Why should Christians share? Why should we give? Why should I give? Just want to post up a few pointers before I head to bed. There are two points: i) For myself A while ago I was doing a paper on Christian Ethics. I was studying on the Rich man and Lazarus. It is the commentaries of many great theologians that struck me that the Lazarus is outside of the door of rich man. Yet the rich man did...
