my heart must go on. . .

season finales. 24…ugh. greys anatomy…argh!!! izzie…wut da? o meredith why? ok that was all too much for one single night of television…and nonetheless delayed by the presidential address.
the drama that is my life. dismal unpredictable weather. jayden growing up before thine eyes. and yes, the apple blues. how much can my heart take?

apple has shocked and awed. my technolust rages on. the new macbooks are the real thing. sleek and sexy. i really have to write more about my experiences of the gospel of apple one of these days.

i’m really ultra sad that i can’t make the grand event for the opening of our fifth avenue store in nyc. someone pick up a shirt for me….pleeeeeeeeze? sigh. if you’re in the city. hit it up. it’s going to be…so. clutch.

if you’re looking for a retreat/conference to attend this summer, let me suggest a couple that i will be at. not that my being there should incite you to go…uh you should go for you. for God. for something else but if you must, sure, for me…

1) new york summer conference. i’ll be giving a workshop on pop culture. hit it up. check out my updated bio. i’m such a dork.

2) i’ll be speaking for the chinese bible church of maryland next week. so i look forward to hanging with some of you guys there.

3) also in august i’ll be speaking at the familykeepers conference at messiah college

so yeah, lots definitely going on and keeping me busy. i most covet your prayers faithful friends.

some of you have want to know what’s been going on in my life. so here’s a brief sketch of what it is that i’ve been up to. the past year has been a real defining time for me filled with lots of firsts and neverfailing to be one heck of a roller coaster ride. but all in all – soul searching. i’ve been seaching for my soul. searching for my humanity. searching for some simple goodness that i can do for many many years. some of you know, i’ve been searching for a new home – a new church home. it’s been a year since i’ve graduated seminary. so what do i do with a mdiv? i don’t know still but yet God is still incredibly faithful and truly sovereign. he has perfect timing. more recently i’ve been looking at different churches and looking for God to grow my heart. some opportunities have opened and some have closed. i guess i’ll be “candidating” or “courting” some churches this season. it’s almost like speed dating but not. this has been a very grueling process already. my palms are sweaty and my knees rattle. i’m short of breath. today i scheduled a full marathon interview weekend with a church. a full three days of getting to know yous, theological grillings and so forth. i know some of you may attend this particular church. i will withhold names of churches for now. but dear friends, pray for me. bless your heart.

btw. new jayden video is up on youtube. i want to see my videos get viral!

[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.
