My pastor’s a sinner

Last Sunday we confirmed a new lead pastor at our Church. My wife and I have been a part of this particular Body for quite a while and we were overjoyed that a long and painful chapter finally came to a close. We have a new pastor ! This is exciting news. He will for sure propel this Church to a new level, new initiatives, new heights. A new drive and vigor will permeate our Church and it will be the best thing ever !

My Problem with Easter

If the message of Easter is true, if the message is one that our Lord is alive and well, here and now, and is with us each and every day, there is no hiding. One cannot go on with his or her daily life as if nothing happened and commemorate this event one day a week. This is a message that should impact my life fundamentally. It should impact my life to be one of tremendous joy, comfort, trust, hope and love. And it is a message that should not only inspire but instill in me a desire to share, comfort, care for, love and uplift those around me. Continue reading

Note here that what I am asking is not whether you love the worship style, or the teaching or the dress code, atmosphere, programs or even the senior pastor.

Going vs Belonging

Don’t just go to Church. I’m serious. I’m telling you to not just go to church. I’m asking you if you belong in Church.

We all go places. We go visit others, we go to events, concerts or dinners. But going somewhere doesn’t mean you belong to the group you’re going to. As Christians shouldn’t “go” to Church. But we do “belong” in Church. So what is the difference between going and belonging ? Continue reading
