brit hume on tiger woods: what’s the big deal?

Maybe you’ve seen it or not but if you haven’t, I invite you to watch the video (below) and contribute to our dialogue. My simple question:

What’s the big deal? Did you or do you have any problems with what he shared? Did he violate the tenets of “good journalism?”

For those that don’t know,¬†Brit Hume is a TV commentator and journalist. He now mostly works at FOX News as a senior political analyst. Truth be told, he’s one of the few I can listen to on FOX News when I’m watching it mainly because he’s not screaming. MSNBC isn’t much better. But I digress…

But here’s the context and the situation (from wikipedia):

On January 3, 2010, as a guest on Fox News Sunday Hume offered advice to Tiger Woods that he might turn his faith to Christianity. Hume’s comments came in the wake Read the rest of this entry »

tiger wood: the rise, fall, and…

It began with an accidental car accident (my words). Seemed innocent enough. And eventually, it became ridunkulously stupid all the media coverage an accidental car accident was receiving. Time to move on.

And then the drama began to unfold.

And while I haven’t been following the story, it’s hard NOT to hear something about the story. I don’t know if you’ve been tracking it. I’ve avoided blogging about it until tonight when I read about his decision to indefinitely take a break from professional golf.

Just wanted to share some quick reflections and ask you a simple question for your feedback: Read the rest of this entry »

Aloha. Mahalo. Hana hou. Ohana.

Thank you, Kona, the Whitlocks, YWAM, sea turtles, Nemo, Restorers DTS, and Scandinavian Shaved Ice. Our three children.

One will be heading off to college in one year. The 2nd in three years. In six years, Minhee and I will be empty nesters. As a young parent, my prayers for them often surrounded their purpose in life. While I still ponder those things, there are three things that I most pray for:

1. That they may love Christ and obey Christ. Not just the idea but to actually follow Christ and thus, to love people.

2. To hold God's Word - the Holy Scriptures - dear and near to their hearts.

3. To love one another and be there for one another for life. To be loyal to one another. To protect one another. To never allow pettiness, conflicts, jealousy,  money, or whatever to get between them in the future. Ever. 
May it be so. Amen. Kona sunset. #nofilter

Perhaps from the outside...things look great but this has been one of the most challenging years of our life. The most painful has involved one of our kids who've had to endure through a lifelong chronic illness. This year, we've gone to the hospital 3-4 times/week trying to get her better. Ups and downs. Emotional roller coaster. Parents will understand this but nothing hurts more than a sick child...especially when you can't "fix" the situation. We were praying that our trip to Hawaii would be a balm for her soul...but it has been hard. Really hard. Lots of tears hard. But soaking in this sunset with our kids is something we don't want to take for granted.

We continue to pray and hope. Hope is not that God promises us perfection or everything we want but that in all situations...God is with us. Believing - while faltering - in this truth for our child.
