Thy Kingdom come: on faith and politics

Part of my personal wrestling these past years had been around the topic of church and state. I grew up despising the field of politics, as I often saw it being used for oppressive means and personal gain. Yet here I am today, running for a seat at the Parliament. So here I pen my reflections, seeking to echo the prayer that Christ taught us: “Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done,” even as He breathed His last.

through the eyes of Calvary Love: on the subject of discernment

One of my favorite things of journeying as a Christian is to converse with others on how the Lord is so involved in all of our lives. Recently, my trip back to the US sparked a conversation with one of my dear friends on the topic of discernment. This is my letter to her. I pray that this letter may only bring us to deeper communion with our Lord who revealed His will through Calvary Love.

o, silent night: reflections on the birth of Christ

In a season of rejoicing and celebration, I pray that we may not neglect the weight of the Truth of the birth of our Lord and Savior, who left all majesty to be born in a manger. In Christ, we see God denying Himself all lavishness to lavish Himself on us. A self-giving, other-serving, sacrificial love.

the wayward way of Grace

A friend of mine recently asked me about the concept of "when I am weak, then He is strong"–something perhaps as Christians we tend to talk a lot about. But do we truly understand what it means to say this, and to walk in the path of weakness? This is an excerpt of my letter to her, and I pray that this may only spur us to think deeper about what it means to boast in our weaknesses.

twenty four: reflections on the theology of work

Over the years my birthdays have been a time of reflection of how the Lord has kindly led me through the seasons. Perhaps this year, specifically, calls for the thoughts on the Theology of Work, especially, as I step into the workplace for the first time. I am thankful that these have been restless months, and I pray that this post may be one of many conversations to come about what it means for us to “work as unto the Lord.”
