A Multi-Ethnic Worship Leader Has … Conviction

I have spent half of my life in Korea and the other half in the US. Korea is a tiny peninsula nation surrounded by world powers and has been invaded by other nations countless times. I grew up learning (being forced to think) that we should have Korean pride since Koreans are smarter than other ethnic groups. We have our own alphabet, we are doing well on IT, telecommunication and electronics, and we are even famous for Gangnam Style!...

A Multi-Ethnic Worship Leader Is … Relational

One of my very favorite aspects of what I have been called to do at Bridgeway Community Church where I serve is meeting people from all walks of life.  Having the privilege of leading in a multicultural environment has been so good for my heart.  It has challenged me, changed me, and given me perspective on life and Jesus that I truly believe I would not have if I were in a mono-cultural environment. I have learned so much in the time...

MultiCultural Worship Builds Community

I at one point had the privilege of speaking to 400 students about the concept of multicultural worship. First of all, I am encouraged by the fact that students in a Christian high school want to know more about multicultural worship (it was their idea to invite me to come!) A few days after the chapel, I got the chance to speak with one of the international students at the school. He said, “chapel was good this week.” I smiled and...

Be Still, and Know that I am God

The prophet Habakkuk charged the nation of Judah, and all the earth to be silent before the LORD, resident in his holy temple (Hab 2:20). The context of Habakkuk’s message was the imminent destruction of Jerusalem by the Babylonian armies of King Nebuchadnezzar. The prophet’s admonition still has currency for the people of God today, as the nations continue to rage against God and each other. As we hush before the Lord in his holy...

Open skies, broken clouds Sunsets, sunrises Voice His handiwork Sunset, sunrise, sunset and awakens Exhibit His knowledge No dialect resides or hides from that voice The white noise of God.
