Shepherd’s Corner – June 2, 2019

We want to thank everyone who helped out and made last Sunday’s BBQ a fun time of food and fellowship. I hope the paper towels, toilet paper, and toothpaste is being put to good use in your homes. And it was great to see many of you come out and join the congregation to rub elbows, eat good food, and play some…

Shepherd’s Corner – May 26, 2019

The recent cold and wet weather is very uncharacteristic of our area. Although I’m enjoying not have to endure 90-100 degree weather, it does feel odd doesn’t it? Or some of you may not have even noticed. Some of us are sensitive to the change in circumstances while others are less so. That could be a personality trait, but regardless of our…

Shepherd’s Corner – May 19, 2019

 I hope that many of you will plan to join us next week for our Congregation Sunday BBQ. This is a good time for our 1st and 2nd service members to spend some casual time eating together and meeting each other. My hope is that collectively we will be able to encourage one another with the food and games and then for…

Happy Mother’s day to the most cheerful givers we know on this side of heaven. Thank God for our moms. We all have moms to be thankful for, and let’s take the time to remember their sacrificial giving and love for us. But this isn’t to just celebrate human endeavor; but I believe this was in our lives because it’s there to…

Our pastoral staff had a chance to attend the PCA EM Forum in Fullerton this past week. It was a great opportunity to meet and reconnect with other Korean American pastors who are serving God’s church. The event was sponsored by KALI (Korean American Leadership Initiative), which is a new group formed under the MNA (Missions to North America) of our denomination.…

Shepherd’s Corner – April 28, 2019

In reality, every Sunday is a celebration of Resurrection Sunday. Because if it weren’t for Christ’s resurrection we would have no hope and no reason to celebrate. I know it can get easy to get numb to a weekly routine/reminder, but I hope and pray that our meditation and reflection on how we are saved, how we are given new life, how…

Shepherd’s Corner – April 21, 2019

On this Resurrection Sunday, let us be reminded of the victory we have in Christ. As the Father raised the Son from the dead and the Spirit helps us to know and understand this truth, we can see that sin has been defeated. This is what gives us the confidence to fight the sin nature in us. Though it may often feel…

Shepherd’s Corner – April 14, 2019

Today is Palm Sunday. As we remember Jesus entering into Jerusalem many years ago and the crowds shouting “Hosanna to the Son of David!” and “Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the Lord!” I want to ask you, who’s king of your Sunday today? Is it your job? Your friends? Your family? Your success? Trust me, it’s not…

Shepherd’s Corner – March 17, 2019

As Inland Church transitions with it’s 5th Senior Pastor, I hope that you are praying for your church! This is a good reminder for our congregation that we ought to be regularly praying for our church and particularly its leaders. Please regularly pray for our session and pastoral staff. It is only by God’s grace that good decisions are made and that…
