WORDS FROM THE PASTOR
As we stay home during the pandemic, it seems we have more time to do things that we don’t usually do, for example, baking and puzzles. Weeks after the lock down started, around May and June, many started baking as we missed all the yummy buns we used to get from the bakery stores. All of a sudden, pictures of different kinds of home made buns flooded all social media. Puzzles are another hot item. Sale numbers were reportedly breaking records. Even my daughter somehow got me to give her a set that I have kept for a while. That challenging set was completed, framed, and is now hanging near the entrance of my apartment.

WORDS FROM THE PASTOR
Pastor Isaac and I got together this past Tuesday for a long day together to clarify and pray over the vision of our church. We had a pleasant time reflecting on the lineage of leadership in CCBC, with laughter and lamenting. We separated to be alone with God in silence and Scripture, and then came together to unify the church dream, rooted in the dreams of Scripture and our personal dreams as leaders. I believe this was an important day for the future of CCBC.

WORDS FROM THE PASTOR
I quickly sit down to read my book, as an older white gentleman tugs a small flimsy luggage into the subway car. He starts sharing his story to the riders, and I listen there. He sounds reasonable: a man coming out of rehab, trying to make things work again. He wants to take his two kids, Davis and Amber, to the park but has no money. Should I give or should I not?

WORDS FROM THE PASTOR
With sincere gratitude, my family and I would like to thank the CCBC family for showering us with your great love and other generous means of support (flowers, food, homemade bread, cookies, grocery...etc.) throughout the past month as we went through Vivien’s health crisis. Most importantly, thank you all for praying for us unceasingly before the throne of grace. Because of that, our family can experience great peace and joy.

WORDS FROM THE PASTOR
Time flies, I have reached retirement time in a blink. In July, I officially retired. I have been continuously working for forty years, it is about time I paused and saw how God would guide me in the next page of my life. Retirement has been something I longed for. I was thinking that I would be having more time to do the things I like. But the pandemic totally changed my plan and my thinking. The unexpected explosion of the virus exposed the helplessness, fragility of our life. We don’t really know what will happen tomorrow.

WORDS FROM THE PASTOR
Many times, there are things in your heart that are heavy and difficult. And we just need to say it. Saying it releases these matters; it releases the weights off our hearts. But many times, it feels like you can’t say it.

WORDS FROM THE PASTOR
In Luke 12, there is a famous parable known as “the Parable of the Rich Fool”. The rich man in this parable owns a lot and he is very good at planning for himself. He plans to build more store houses for his harvest. He works hard to take care of his future. However, he mistakenly believes that material success will guarantee him a pleasant future. According to worldly standards, this rich man is a successful businessman, but to God, he is a fool!

WORDS FROM THE PASTOR
My friends growing up included backgrounds of white, Jewish, Indian, Peruvian, and Chinese. I didn’t have any relationships with black folks, so based on culture, stories and media, I had a bad image of black folks. In college, I stayed in an Asian bubble until I met Stephen, a man from Florida who came to church plant in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. Stephen opened up to me about his God-given vision for a multi-ethnic church.

WORDS FROM THE PASTOR
“You shall not hate your fellow countryman in your heart; you may surely reprove your neighbor, but shall not incur sin because of him. You shall not take vengeance, nor bear any grudge against the sons of your people, but you shall love your neighbor as yourself; I am the LORD.” (Leviticus 19:17-18) I am sure most of us are greatly disturbed by the ever-growing protests happening in our country.
