Shepherd’s Corner-March 15, 2020

From my pastor friend Rev. Dr. Dennis Kang (Sr Pastor of City Light Church): “In the 3rd Century there was a pandemic that was sweeping across Italy, Africa and the western empire. The scholar Kyler Harper believes it was the Ebola virus. At its height it killed more than 5,000 people every day in Rome. Some cities had their population wiped out…

Amidst the CoVid19 concerns, I just wanted to first let you know what our church is doing to make sure that everyone is safe. First we ask that if you feel sick, please stay home. Let us also know so that we can pray for you. Second, we encourage everyone to wash their hands regularly and refrain from handshakes with one another.…

As we wrap up the New Testament reading of our Inland Church bible reading campaign, I hope and pray that it’s been a blessed time for all of you. And for those of you who have family in the KM or education department, I really hope that this sparked a lot of bible discussions or sharing in your homes. I believe that…

Next week is the deadline to sign up for this summer’s Indonesia short term missions trip! The EM leaders wanted to encourage people to sign up and help Missionary Matthew and Rebekah by providing more subsidy to the reg fee. So the reg fee is now $1500! Please pray about spending the end of June seeing God’s work in Indonesia and serving…

I tell this to my Y1 from time to time because I strongly believe in this: Don’t only have Christian friends; have non-Christian friends as well. Being friends with non-Christian peers keeps our eyes open to the reality of the world we live in and helps us to know how to hold conversations with them as we build relationships with them. Conversely,…

Last Saturday our very own Andrew Chang JDSN got married! It was a joyous time to celebrate God’s love and their covenanting with one another. And it’s a wonderful time to witness our pastoral intern entering a new life stage. Let’s pray for him and his wife as they start their new life together, and also for the ministry life they will…

It’s been 13 years since the first iPhone came out (I googled, and the first android came out in 2008). Since then there has been a lot of changes and advancements to our smartphones and as you hold in your hands, they are faster, more responsive, brighter, waterproof, sandproof, anything you could think of, it has been upgraded and will be upgraded.…

Shepherd’s Corner-January 12, 2020

I believe when a church is regularly in the Word of God, not only will it be well fed but it will also be protected from falsehoods and misdirection. One does not know where to go when you don’t have a map. The Word of God is the map for every Christian (also instruction manual, love letter, etc but I digress). You…

Shepherd’s Corner – January 5, 2020

In 2020, we want to continue with the theme of “Be a Witness”. We started off last summer with our guest speaker President Joel Kim (WSCal) reminding us of the biblical call to be a witness. Then in the fall we were challenged to be a Witness to our Community through inviting our neighbors to Hallelujah Night and our church. Next month…
