I Love My Church [4/30/18]

i-love-my-church

There are places we dread and maybe can do without: a visit to the DMV (Department of Motor Vehicles), a regular check-up at the dentist, or a trip to the market to buy groceries for the week. Contrary to popular demand, well, you can't just do without them. These are places we go not necessarily because we want to, but because we have to. I can't imagine anyone saying, "I...

A Mother's Day Reflection [5/14/18]

mother's day

These words were spotted on a church marquee for a Mother's Day sermon, "If evolution is true, how come mothers still have only two hands?" For all the amazing moms who have had more sleepless nights than they wish to remember to care for an ailing child, or wrestle with little ones to get them dressed and ready for school, or have had to reheat a cup of coffee four time...

What Are You Giving Up? [2/19/18]

2011-03-lent-big

What are you giving up for Lent? Not as much time on Instagram? Less selfies? Perhaps snacking less? Netflix? Sharing your true feelings and writing them out instead of using emoji's? Checking your phone every 2 minutes? Sugar? Soda? I guess the list is endless. Many people have some idea that Lent is about giving stuff up, but may not know much more than that. My persona...

It is a time often associated with the "giving up" of something so that we can turn away from whatever has distracted or derailed us from God. However, Lent has to be more than just a deprivation from our favorite foods, or shows, or our electronic devices. The rhythms of Lent encourage us not just ...

Reworked Hymns, Homes & Seasons [3/19/18]

Anyone in the market for a new home can either: reject what they see, purchase the home as is or remodel it so that it meets the needs of your family. Two summers ago, HGTV (Home Garden TV) became one of our favorite channels to watch as a family since adding cable television to our home. There's something fascinating about a home improvement show that takes a rundown hou...

40 Days of Wonder [4/2/18]

Easter people

"We are an Easter people" is still ringing in my ears from this morning's sermon. I'm not sure if there's anything more telling or a better descriptor of who we are than this: "We are an Easter people." It provokes a sense of profound and deep faith, one that tells us that we are connected in someway to something that happened to someone so long ago. That what happened two...

My Limited Perspective [4/16/18]

sacramento

In the midst of a discussion on the Stephon Clark shooting in Sacramento, a fellow pastor looked my way and asked me for my take as an Asian-American. There were two tables in the room with a handful of pastors, but only one Asian-American. Me. At first, I didn't know what to say. It's not that I hadn't thought about it. It's not because I didn't have an opinion about the ...
