WORDS FROM THE PASTOR
On my day off, I wanted to hear from the Lord and spent time in silence. As I was discerning the Spirit’s voice, I expected a deep word of comfort or a battle call for ministry. Instead, I felt a command of discipline: “Put your house in order.” My recent devotions in 1 Timothy stressed that to be a biblical leader, we must take care of our family and have order in our household. (1 Timothy 3:4-5). I got up, called my family, and cleaned my room.

STAFF SHARING
“And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.”  Hebrews 13:16 It was rainy every day last week, but not on Saturday! Jesus said that it is “more blessed to give than to receive,” and we experienced this intimately during our community outreach. Fourteen members participated and I was deeply touched by...

WORDS FROM THE PASTOR
This has been one of the darkest weeks for our church, with Vivien’s terrible illness. Our impromptu prayer meeting on Sunday was both moving and emotional. We shared mutual pain as a church family, and prayed bold prayers out of deep love.

WORDS FROM THE PASTOR
“The heart of the problem is the problem of the heart.” Undoubtedly, each and every one of us is facing problems at all levels. On a global scale, our world continues to battle the pandemic. A virus we cannot see is killing tens of thousands daily, causing long term changes to not only the world economy but to individual lifestyle. Disasters brought about by climate change devastate communities. Our own country faces a general election that divides us, showing us the dark and even disturbing side of our political system and its leaders. As individuals, we wrestle with sickness, suffering, and other inevitable personal dilemmas.

WORDS FROM THE PASTOR
Being a migrant is hard. My parents told me stories that when they immigrated to America, they experienced discrimination in restaurants, and how they picked furniture off the street. So a few decades later, I asked my mom if she would go back to live in Taiwan again. To my surprise, she said no….Taiwan has changed too much; it is not her home anymore. Perhaps you can relate to my mom in a rapidly changing world. We are constantly forced to adapt; what is secure before, may not be secure now. We are still migrants.

SHARING FROM OUR STAFF
With joy and awe, I return to the CCBC family. After a separation of 11 years, I am grateful to see the youth I met more than a decade ago serving as our leaders now faithfully. I am also grateful for all your prayer and support to me and my family in the past years. During my time of cancer treatment, I felt like prophet Elijah, tired and alone in the wilderness. I re-examined my life, facing all the sadness, miseries, dirts, and fears in my heart...

WORDS FROM THE PASTOR
I like October. There are many reasons. One of them is that we have Missions Month usually in October. Church history is mission history. The reason God established the church and let his children remain on earth is that we can spread the Gospel, to help others be part of the family. It is exactly because of the works of the missionaries in the past that we heard the Gospel and became Christians. It is indeed our honor and blessings to carry the tradition.

WORDS FROM THE PASTOR
The world is on fire. We have been struck by multiple natural disasters, and we also see the relational fabric of our society tearing apart across political and racial issues.
It’s a good thing that God created the church for us to stay inside and be comfortable! The world is too big for God’s people anyway, so let’s stay inside and…
Wait. That’s not right...

WORDS FROM THE PASTOR
Our Thursday Bible Study is on Matthew. This week we studied chapter 14. There are familiar stories: the five loaves and two fish, Jesus walking on the water. But this time, I also noticed something else: Jesus’s loneliness.
Verse 13 reads “he withdrew by boat privately to a solitary place.”

WORDS FROM THE PASTOR
Here is a haunting quote from W. Edwards Deming: “It is not necessary to change. Survival is not mandatory.” Read it again. It’s true.
Yet, when I look at our church, I’m proud that we are resisting comfort and choosing to change. We are choosing to adapt for the Kingdom of God.
