Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, everyone!

Thank you so much for your love, support, and friendship. While I haven’t met most of my blog readers, I’ve been encouraged by many of you. Thanks for your comments and support over this past year and years. It’s been such an adventurous time – and if I’m honest, incredibly arduous over the past two years but I’ve learned so much about hope and grace.

I’m especially thankful for those that have written directly to share of your support and prayers. It’s truly humbling and uplifting to have people praying for me; It truly means so much to me and my family.

On this Christmas, I’m certainly grateful for our family, friends, and larger community but most of all, I’m mindful, humbled, and captivated by these words:

But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. (Luke 2:10-11)

At the age of 18, I made a confession and profession – to not live in fear but rather in the joy of following Christ. The good news for us today, tomorrow, and all the days of our lives is that Truth is not merely propositional.

God is not abstractual; God is not conceptual; God is not nebulous; God is not distant; God is not angry

God has become personal to us.

This Truth has become personified in the person of Jesus Christ.

God has descended. God has come to us. God, through his Son, Jesus, has moved into our neighborhood and into our hearts. Jesus who was fully God – yet chose to become fully human and in great love, chooses obedience – even unto death – so that we might be reconciled .

The birth of Christ signifies two important news:

  • We are in need of a Savior.
  • And a Savior has been to us and his name is Christ.

Thanks be to God.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, everyone. May the light of Christ shine bright in your lives.

May it illuminate deep within you…

so that He may shine bright through your life.

Choose today to…

live not in fear, guilt, or shame, but rather in faith, hope, and love.

And if you haven’t seen this, check it out. Brilliant:

One Day’s Wages

My Padawan. My son. My youngest. Encouraging him to not just hit the hoop courts but also the books. Minhee and I met these college boys when we first arrived in Seattle in 1997. They were part of our bible study that we led in our apartment for college students. They were also among the group of 7 people that helped start @seattlequest.

Much has changed in the world...but not their friendship and love. Thank you Jin and George. We love and honor you. These are crazy times in our country and larger world but nevertheless, we're going to keep pursuing the things that God has placed upon our hearts. We're pressing forward...doing our part to reflect mercy, compassion, and justice - locally and globally.

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. What a journey with this woman. I love her...and I want to keep growing in love, honor, and respect. Great to catch up with @jlin7 in Brooklyn at the Nets game. Grateful for his partnership with @onedayswages to support our Girls' Empowerment Fund. The season hasn't been what he hoped for with major injuries...but we can't wait to see you back on the court soon and do what you do. Stay encouraged, brother. Thanks for your faithful witness for Christ.
