I want to take this opportunity to wish all of my friends, family, church community, blog readers, and the larger community a very Happy New Year!

As some of you know, today [Monday, January 26] is the celebration of the Lunar New Year.  As we begin Year 4707 today  – the Year of the Ox, Minhee and I extend heartfelt blessings to you and yours not simply so that we languish in our own blessedness but are compelled to live lives of blessing unto others and the glory of Christ.

Lunar New Year isn’t just Chinese New Year.  Many of the Asian nations including Korea celebrate the Lunar New Year – Seollal [in Korean].   This is a very significant day for us.

While I’m currently enjoying my experience in South Africa, I am missing Minhee and the kids so much and wish I could be there to mark this day with them.  Thankfully, my parents are with them and I’m sure they are partyin’ it up.  

The picture above [from last year’s New Year] is a pic of Minhee and me in our traditional Korean clothes.  Let’s be honest here:  Minhee looks great but dang, I look hot in those pink pants.  We be Korean drama stars.

    Happy Lunar New Year, pastor Eugene! Great pic! 😉 I have been one of your faithful readers and your blog has been a blessing. Enjoy the rest of your trip!

  2. Happy New Year! I showed my husband, who’s a Korean adoptee and not familiar with Korean customs, the photo of you in the pink pants. Nice. Does pink not have the same “female” sidnificance in Korean culture as it does here?

    Hugs! Elena

Wednesdays are my @onedayswages office day and I especially love the culmination of hard work for our interns, volunteers, 2 full-time staff, and board as we collaborate with our NGO partners. This week, we signed these checks as we granted out over $75,000 to provide better health care for mothers and their families in Mali and Nepal.

THANK YOU for making this possible Your classic play it cool because you're visiting your old stomping grounds at Princeton and pretend you're not cold but in actuality, you're freezing picture. 20 years, 2 weeks, and counting.

pc: ed tanaka Following Jesus is not just about going to church. It also involves repenting, seeking justice, loving kindness, walking humbly, feeding the poor, clothing the naked, speaking up for the voiceless, welcoming the refugee, and fighting for the rights of vulnerable. Sometimes, it's scary but Jesus nevertheless commands, "Follow me." Be brave.
