my return after a long hiatus filled with weddings, exams, conventions, and just plain life. there’s a feeling.

courtelyous road

vertigo ::. laughter and light have returned in mine eyes. a little more grey now. they rest in the horizon on my drive home. a glimpse of salvation. maranatha. december has been vertigo. my mind and heart are at a place i wish not. exuberant joyous moments are entangled by a feeling that all is not right in the world. these truly are nervous times. his love is still teaching me…teaching me to kneel.

extreme makeover: home edition
this past sunday’s episode (the vardon family) was truly remarkable. in his final words, ty pennington reflected on the whole encounter with the vardon family(the parents are both deaf and the son is not just blind but autistic)
and as a tear ran down his own cheek (with perfect timing no less – man, i’m so cynical about that), he said:

“You know, it’s somewhat of a battle during the week. Lots of people arguing about what’s right for this, or what’s right for that, or do we have time for that. Well, it’s just a lot of pressure to try and not only meet a deadline, but to meet a goal. And then when you see the family in their new backyard, and they see their youngest son finally in that happy place, there’s this moment… it’s like this state of grace when you know everything’s aligning, and we all did the right thing. I feel like I’m just helping reflect the light, man.”

ty got it right. dang. tru. tru. i dug around some more and found that this is all the real deal – the family and the effort put forth by ty and his team are pretty well represented.

[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.
