Second Time


“How come you ain’t like this when I was at MCAC?“ This was Pastor Nelson’s reference a few years ago when we went to visit him.  He was my former pastor.  He was in my church when I first went to MCAC.  He said that after he realized how much we have grown. There were many great times and tough times.  He baptised me.  I led fellowship and was...

Spiritual Growth and feeding


I’ve been meaning to post this for a while….. On Sat night, I took A to downtown and shared hot dogs with R.  During the drive down, A asked me what’s my view if someone wants to leave a church.  I gave him a whole spill….using the analogy of family and church as my spiritual family. Then A asked…’what if you don’t find growth in your church...

Church and Science


I am in the midst of preparing a group presentation on whether Science render Christian faith untenable? One of the pleasure I realize recently is that the freedom I have in pursuit of Truth.  I am blessed to be able to think about issues, read, reflect and discern about them. There are so many resources out there to read and different Christians write about their thinking and...

Hope In The Darkness


Some day, you got to get up…look around and fight the good fight. Hope In The Darkness-Official Trailer from J.E. Video on Vimeo. In 2005, Don and Bridgette Brewster sold their house, belongings, and left their kids and grandchildren to aid in the fight against child sex trafficking. They moved to Phnom Penh, Cambodia “a pedophiles paradise”, to started a center for girls who...

Bids me come and die


I had the fortunate pleasure of sharing my testimony to a youth fellowship last night at an Indonesian church. Whenever I talked about how God worked in my life, it is almost as if I am testifying to myself.  I am once reminded of the journey God took me.  At one point in my testimony, I shared how the ‘unfortunate‘ circumstances of losing my teeth in a bike accident in fact...

On Apologetics: Straw man affect


A straw man argument is an informal fallacy based on misrepresentation of an opponent’s position. To “attack a straw man” is to create the illusion of having refuted a proposition by substituting a superficially similar yet unequivalent proposition (the “straw man”), and refuting it, without ever having actually refuted the original position. Source: Wikipedia It is...



“What” “Oz is dead” “Who?” “Oz.  He used to sleep over there. He’s dead” R pointed out the pillar next to his wheelchair.  R’s friend, Oz, died a week ago.   It was getting dark.  The lights in Nathan Phillip Square flickered on.  Like a light bulb that’s going to burn out.  R took a puff...

Forgive others just as in Christ God forgave you


I was reading Ephesians last night…..I stumbled on a verse I couldn’t stop thinking about it. Ephesians 4:32 Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you. Note: Though I highlight just one verse from the chapter, I suggest we read this verse in light of the whole chapter…in fact, read the whole letter to have a better grasp of...

Dietrich Bonhoeffer: On Community


Excerpts from Dietrich Bonhoeffer‘s Life Together The Classic Exploration of Faith in Community Innumerable times a whole Christian community has broken down because it had sprung from a wish dream.  The serious Christian, set down for the first time in a Christian community, is likely to bring with him a very definite idea of what Christian life together should be and to try and to...

How do you see your work fitting into faith?


A friend asked me where do I see my work and my faith.  How do they interwine?  Here’s my response….. You are asking a loaded question…one that I can spend forever to answer :)…(which I probably will and expect this to be a long email). The biggest lesson I learn from triathlon is the order of things when it comes to serving God.  I learn to let go of the...
