Random Thoughts after a while

It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted any random thoughts.

I just found out in Japanese my surname is “Kaku” (originally it’s Kit or “Guo” in Mandarin) and “Kaku” actually means “stiff” in Malay .. so you guess 🙂 Mr. “stiff”? Kasu san …

Nice to know that a church once hearing my name as a possible candidate to replace a pastor that resigned didn’t pursue it further .. apparently (now this is hearsay) one of their leaders felt that the church I’m pastoring now … hasn’t grown fast enough in numbers … hmmm … 🙂 I’m secure …

So this whole “I’m not a pastor of a fast growing church” made me think what do people REALLY consider as success – how do people perceive what’s the issues that matter in their local church? what do we want? or more precisely, what does God really want? What does it mean to be faithful to the Gospel? Basic questions lah!

Getting back to some prayer journaling was good this afternoon. My physical body also hasn’t been able to be fully on tip top energy the last few days but somehow I pull through …

Facilitating Lectio Divina was good tonight for the groups that came for the “Beyond leading a small group” training I did for 2 nights. My friend Wolfgang did well to share some background and theological insights from Bonhoeffer’s classic Life Together.

Today I heard from the Bishop’s mouth … who are the nominees for the upcoming convention for the various positions. Hmmm … we’ll see what happens.

wow! we had quite a feast just a while ago … went back to the “Kung Fu” man’s Fried Noodle stall …

Some younger person told me today that some of the links I posted were too deep… then I got comments that they love it … well, I just post what I post naturally … everyone is at a different place .. and it’s ok. … there are times we Pause, other times we move … sometimes, we need to dig deeper .. other times we just need to relax … it’s not a pick and choose .. it’s about acknowledging the different seasons we are in.

Nice to see Elysia begin to roll over the side!
