Hong Kong Church of Christ Selects New Church Leader

Over the past 10 years that Jane and I were called to lead the Hong Kong Church of Christ, we have gratefully witnessed God raising up of a number of mature evangelists and women's ministry leaders. This allowed us to embark on a new journey, starting with the formation of our Hong Kong Leadership Team.

What Are You Hanging On?

It seemed a good idea at the time. It began late one night as I changed the bed sheets while watching an episode of "The Dick Van Dyke Show." It was a funny episode. Somewhere between the twisting and tugging of sheets and my laughter during the show—I pulled one of my ribs out of place. I've done this before so am familiar with the pain. I knew right away what had happened.

Praise

I've spent the last three weeks without my computer. The first week was okay, even though I had nothing to do besides watch TV. The second week I started to become anxious and depressed because I didn't have what I consider to be my lifeline. My laptop is the only way I can read the Bible, write my blog, and communicate with people through email, texting and phone calls.

Maturing Our Churches: Redemptive Grace in our Preaching and Teaching

The excerpt below was taken from a lesson entitled, "Maturing Our Churches -- Lord, Teach Us," on Thursday, July 7, 2016, at Reach2016 in St. Louis, Missouri, USA. You can listen to the audio recording of this lesson here. (Please note that a small subscription fee to DTV is required to access the lesson.) 

I come to you from a perspective chiefly as an evangelist, as a church leader. We all teach, whether we’re leading a Bible talk or putting on an MTA (Ministry Training Academy) or similar event. We all do teach in some way or another. We want to see the church grow up into the full stature of Christ. This is massive; we have an amazing opportunity to take the church from an adolescent phase, in some cases, to a bullet-proof, rock-solid maturity, where we can stand, and make a stand, to really change the world.

A Journey Toward Positive Possibilities

Kati was diagnosed with Lyme disease in early June 2012, just weeks before she moved to Philadelphia. It was good to get answers and know why she was feeling lousy, but it was rather unfortunate timing from my mom point of view. Right when she was set to leave and take care of herself, I felt a deep calling to hold her close and protect her. Kati was ready to go, and honestly, before her diagnosis, I had come to believe it was best. As close as we are, it was clear that we could only handle one woman in the house - especially in the kitchen.
