What does it say about our country that we have to hear the cold and hard truth from a comedian?  Check out the video below as comedian Jon Stewart of the Daily Show interviews and exposes Jim Cramer – the self hyped investment and financial guru.  

We are going through a painfully historic economic crisis and recession.  It’s repercussions will be felt for years or at least, I suspect that’s the case.  Things may never be the same – and maybe that’s good.  Why?  I’m no economics sage but something is clearly broken.

We’ve sought wisdom and guidance from our politcians, national leaders, and powerful CEOs and all we’ve had thus far are lots of finger pointing, bailout packages, and [insert thoughts here].  Well, we’ve finally heard something accurate and prophetic from our comedic “fool”:

the financial crisis and crash of 2008

Who would have thunk? 

Years from now, people will refer to the financial crisis and market crash of 2008 and we can all say: “We were there.” And while it’s affecting so many people, I’m especially concerned for the poorest of the poor around the world and for those who are near retirement age that have much of their retirement funds invested in the markets. 

And while I do feel incredibly bad for those who are going to be severely impacted, I’m also aware that a correction or crash such as this can be good and almost necessary for a world and nation that is ruled by the god of mammon

Anyway, our church elders/pastors met for our regular Elder Board meeting last night and agreed Read the rest of this entry »

Final sunset.

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.
