aint the way it’s supposed to be – in philly [updated]

there are disruptions in life all the time. then there are disruptions that slows your life down to where you question it. as a pastor sometimes you hear news that make your nostrils narrow. notice the physical presence of air going in. out. you swallow hard and become acutely aware of everything around you.
things aint supposed to be like this.

a week ago, a member of our church, Kwok Wai-ho, took a walk outside his home in his neighborhood where he was attacked by a group of young people. his head struck the ground leaving severe hemorrhaging. he’s been in a coma since the attack. an hour ago, i received word that his condition is terminal. i’m angry. sad. frustrated.
please pray for the family and our church community. pray for philadelphia. pray for the peace of the city

abcpastor
[american born chinese pastor]
seeks to be that third place for those who are american born chinese [abc] in ministry.
[i]
here we may explore issues unique to the chinese church and doing ministry in that context
[ii]
expand the intersection of asian american culture and christian faith
[iii]
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.
