In life, we are often faced with the challenge of moving forward while grappling with the weight of cherished memories. These memories, though filled with love and joy, can become anchors, holding us back from embracing the present and the future. How do we navigate this delicate balance between honouring the past, living in the present and looking forward to the future?

One of the most profound challenges is learning to let go of the good memories that pull us back. Must we forget these moments of happiness and love? How do we forget the warmth of a partner's embrace, the shared laughter, and dreams? The realization that our loved ones are no longer with us can turn these cherished memories into sources of pain. How do we live well without them by our side? These questions have no easy answers.

Have you ever felt awkward when someone says we are one family in Christ? Does it feel like a cliché, something we say but don't really feel or experience? It's easy to rush in and out of church each week, barely interacting with one another, and call that a family. But if we're honest, this "family" can sometimes feel dysfunctional.

 

So, how do we change this? How do we become a community that truly embodies the love and unity of Christ? Perhaps it starts with something as simple as staying a bit longer after each service. Instead of rushing off, why not stay back for a cup of coffee or at least until the end of the announcements?

My dear missional family,

 

Over the past weeks, I have had the privilege of conducting two funerals for individuals who were not part of our church community and had not been baptized. They were closely connected to our church members. While these moments have allowed us to extend care and support to grieving families, I have been careful not to make promises that are not supported by the teachings of the Bible.

EMBRACING INTERGENERATIONAL LOVE: LUNAR NEW YEAR’S REFLECTION

In my journey of faith, I often encounter the beauty and richness of different generations and cultures within the church community. It's a tapestry woven with threads of wisdom, experience, and diversity. As we celebrate Lunar New Year, it's a poignant moment to reflect on the significance of intercultural and intergenerational relationships in our lives.
