Poverty Here, There, Everywhere

By Frederick Cardoza Jan. 9, 2017 9:00 a.m. Culture, Ministry and Leadership, Missions, Theology

Poverty. It is no respecter of persons. It is a global reality that exists in Calcutta and Compton; Tokyo and Timbuktu; San Francisco and São Paulo. Poverty is seen in nations and neighborhoods. It ravages urban, suburban, and rural areas. And despite the enormous wealth of some areas, make no mistake: poor people reside in Beverly Hills, Dubai, and Midtown Manhattan. Destitution is not limited to places like Dhaka and Detroit. Quite simply, there are examples of poverty everywhere. That isn’t to say poverty is equally distributed or equally affecting. In some areas poverty is more relative and sporadic. In other places, it seems absolute ...

Why do We Sing in our Worship Service?

By Kenneth Berding Jan. 3, 2017 9:39 a.m. Biblical Exposition, Church Life, Ministry and Leadership, Spiritual Formation, Theology

I started the New Year by worshiping, fellowshipping, and preaching at Taft Avenue Community Church in Orange, California.  At one point in the service, Pastor Bob Burris read aloud a short explanation of why Christians sing during times of worship.  I appreciated what he read and want to share it with you today.  The reading was adapted from a blog post by Kevin DeYoung, cut down to a length that could be used in a worship service.  Why do we sing when we worship together?

Ode to My Father (Korean) 아버지를 회상 하며

By Daniel Kim Nov. 28, 2016 12:05 p.m. Marriage and Family, Ministry and Leadership

아버지는 78년 전에 한국의 작은 시골마을에서 태어났습니다. 어떻게 다리가 그렇게 되었는지는 모르지만, 아버지는 어렸을 때부터 다리가 매우 아프셨습니다. 나중에 알게 되었지만 아버지에게는 엉덩이 절구관절이 없어 걸을 때마다 허벅지 뼈가 골반을 찔렀습니다. 옛날50년대 한국에서는 이것이 아마 당연한 놀림거림이었을 것입니다. 그래서 아버지는 자라면서 육체적으로 그리고 심리적으로 많이 힘들었을 것입니다.

Ode to My Father

By Daniel Kim Nov. 24, 2016 12:00 p.m. Marriage and Family, Ministry and Leadership

My father was born 78 years ago in a small countryside village in Korea. We don’t know exactly what the story is or what happened, but since he was little he had a very bad limp — a disabled leg. We’d later find out that the whole ball socket of his hip was missing and that every time he took a step, his thighbone would stab his pelvis. It was painful both physically and emotionally, as you can imagine all the names he was called in mid-century Korea.

Dar gracias en todo

By Octavio Esqueda Nov. 7, 2016 10:51 a.m. Church Life, Culture, Ministry and Leadership

En los próximos días terminará la campaña electoral para elegir al nuevo presidente de los Estados Unidos. Puede ser que cuando lea estas líneas estemos a pocas horas de las elecciones o quizá las votaciones ya hayan terminado. Independientemente del que resulte ganador, los últimos meses han sido muy pesados y el ambiente social demasiado tenso en todos los sentidos. Expresiones de desaliento, frustración o hartazgo se convirtieron en el común denominador para muchas personas que ven con alivio el fin de la larga carrera presidencial.
