rev mcgreevey?

what the? i just thought this was interesting news. former new jersey gov. james mcgreevey has decided to pursue his master of divinity at general theological seminary. he was received as an episcopalian on sunday in nyc. in 2004 mcgreevey resigned from his position when he made public that he was gay and was having an affair. he is still in the midst of a nasty divorce.
who wouldathinkit? back in jersey i had the privilege to rub shoulders with some politicians and understand the system a little more. politicians are indeed interesting creatures. mcgreevey definitely stood out in his journey to office then and he still stands out in his choices now. i wish him well.

i still haven’t decided which political machine is worst – nj or philly…?

    i think jersey’s has been historically a bit worse. there seems to be a brain drain of young talented folks that flows from nj to places like nyc and other large metro areas. but i’m encouraged by leaders like cory booker of newark and hey, even gov. 91mph on the turnpike. it’s been a while since any leaders in jersey have been encouraging, but maybe we’re turning a corner.

[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.
