I got married the day after Trump’s inauguration, and ironically, boarded a cruise ship to Mexico for an awesome honeymoon. I got back and was shocked to hear about everything that had happened in a week. What was even more shocking (sort of) was how much discord there was between Christians. Facebook itself looked like […]
In light of everything that is happening today in our nation regarding area of immigration, I wanted to write about how as Christians, we need to respond to these issues and see what God’s heart looks like towards the foreigner and sojourner. Instead of just being ethnocentric as Americans, and seeing America First!, our core […]
La La Land has landed a historic fourteen Academy Award nominations and if the past is any indication, it may win all of them outside of the acting categories given Hollywood’s adoration for movies about movies (remember when the Academy lost its mind over The Artist, a movie that honestly nobody talks about anymore?). Its place […]
Many years ago when I was new to biblical faith and largely unaware of other belief systems outside of my own (or at least of the couple congregations I had attended), I met a co-worker who described himself as ‘Eastern Orthodox’. At the time I met him I had been a Christian for only a […]
The movie Arrival arrived late for me. It was only released in Hong Kong last Thursday, 12 January 2017 (but not China, whose release date is 20 January) and I only had the chance to see it today. But it was worth the wait. Because the lack of energy, money and indeed time, I hardly go to the […]
For those who don’t know, I am getting married in about 30 days from now. The prospect of this fills me with such joy, primarily because my wife-to-be is my best friend and someone I choose not to live without. There will be so many practical benefits to our marriage: Cutting commute time in half, […]
Academic students of a particular field who desire to become ‘scholars’ in order to publish regularly and/or teach at higher levels of education typically need to be awarded a doctoral degree. The award of a doctoral degree marks one’s acceptance into the community of scholars in that field. The etymology of the term doctor relates […]
Curiosity may have killed the cat, but it saved Israel. As he unwittingly proto-typed Jesus, the Good Shepherd, Moses was distracted by a curious phenomenon: “I will turn aside to see this great sight, why the bush is not burned.” (Ex. 3:3) Read the rest of the story here. Why is the bush not burned? […]
If you come to Manchester you will be inundated with bees. One of the first things you will notice upon arrival is the buzzing of bees all around. We have lots of wasps too, but those are not as cute. As the weather has gotten colder, the bees have disappeared… for now. Not only are […]
During my sophomore year of college, I looked up the entry in a theological dictionary on “angelology.” It suggested that we know very little about angels, and that the best places to get acquainted with the theology of angels were Augustine’s City of God, Anselm’s Why God Became Man, and select writings from Pseudo-Dionysius. That […]
