as the winds blow

the wife & i on a romantic getaway ::.

RANT ::.
i’m troubled by all the anger and discontent that’s been long expressed from coast to coast. i’m tired of the malicious talk. there’s nothing that has been said that builds up. now is a greater time for humility and servanthood from the church body. so i’ll shut my mouth up now and move on to more interesting things.

RAVE ::.
product placement ::. i stayed up until 3am watching the news last night. in the many hours i watched, i noticed behind the desks of the newscasters some nice product placement of my favorite sustainable design chair, the herman miller mirra. (christmas is just around the corner, anybody wanna buy me one to save my poor aching back?) for a moment…i cared nothing about politics or anything else.

designed by Studio 7.5, it is committed to an Eamesian design philosophy. ergonomically correct, made of a minimal number of parts, easily disassembled and is 96% recyclable. it was updated in an upholstered version this summer, the textiles used are 100% recyclable.

a balanced ride: easy motion. the harmonic tilt creates pivot points at the hip, knee, and ankle to allow easy and natural movement. advanced spring technology. users of all sizes feel equal resistance while moving anywhere in the wide tilt range; the sitter is always in control.

custom seat comfort: aireweave suspension. this elastomeric suspension seat follows the contours of the body, distributes pressure evenly, and provides aeration.

flexfront seat edge: the sitter adjusts the seat depth without moving the seat pan; there’s never a gap between the seat and backrest.
retails around $699…sigh*

i was in target and guess what i saw…? o my heart be still!!!
21 jumpstreet complete first season dvd ::.

BOOYA! would you look at the hair? oh the many hours did i spend trying to get my hair to be like johnny depp’s. for those yoots that have no idea what jumpstreet is all about…sigh. it was johnny depp’s big break.

erasure ::. for fans of erasure, they have just finished their new studio album, Nightbird, the first single from which will be a song called “Breathe”. the album is due out Jan. 25, after which Erasure will tour through North America in April … a live DVD entitled ‘The Tank, The Swan and The Balloon Live!’ is to be released on 22nd November 2004 (UK), 30th November 2004 (US). oh the many albums to anticipate. . .

“I’ve found that often success looks more like failure, riches more like poverty and real life often feels more like death…the Christian life is very literally the process by which we are killed.” – Derek Webb

[american born chinese pastor]
seeks to be that third place for those who are american born chinese [abc] in ministry.
here we may explore issues unique to the chinese church and doing ministry in that context
expand the intersection of asian american culture and christian faith
or simply expose what goes on in the mind of this abcpastor

this may be a bit ambitious or even naiive but i do hope that through the posts we can bring together different faith communities, passions for the advancement of the Gospel and the equipping of the body of Christ.

if you are an abc pastor or have any suggestions or would like to contribute to make this space evolve, just comment.
