Earlier this summer, a friend of mine sent me a link to The Rise and Fall of Mars Hill (RFMH) podcast produced by Christianity Today. After I listened to the trailer and the first 30 mins of episode 1, my basic response was, “Eh- not really a new story”. Rearrange…

Several months ago, a trailer emerged for a film called “Minari” about Korean immigrants settling in Arkansas in the 1980s. As the son of Korean immigrants who came of age in the 80s, I watched it, and I felt something unexpected. …

The 25th year reunion is one of those milestone events for each graduating class at Harvard College. Those who graduated a few years ahead of me rave about their time at their 25th. I guess by the time people hit their late-40s, they’ve learned to relax and are less inclined…

Lectio Divina this week focuses a lot on John 10: The Good Shepherd. There is nothing particularly profound that the Lord lays on my heart, just the reminder that the Good Shepherd lays down his life for His Sheep. …
