The Philadelphia Primary

Tomorrow is the Philadelphia Primary. This is a critical time for our city and there’s some significant folks besides the mayoral candidates that AsiAms should take note of. As a pastor in the Philadelphia Chinatown community, a few months ago I had the pleasure of meeting possibly the first Asian American City Councilman, Andy Toy (D) at a banquet sponsored by the Philadelphia Chinatown Development Corporation where Mr. Toy serves as Chairman. Now I’m not going to say much because my goal is not to endorse candidates here on this blog or in my local church body even though I may feel more strongly about one over another. I just thought that I’d mention that there are two AsiAms in the race for City Councilman. The other candidate is David Oh (R). The man was a green beret in desert storm and he loves his Bible apparently.

To find out more about Andy Toy check out his official site and his myspace

    Thanks for telling your readers about the Philadelphia primary for City Council At-Large. I ran 4 yeas ago as a first-tme candidate and surprised the experts, who said an Asian American candidate would not receive more than 20,000 votes, by receiving 99,000 votes. I just got past the Primary and am looking forward to winning in the General Election.

    Thank you,
    For City Council At-Large
    Strong Leadership, Fresh Ideas, Honest Government

[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.
