Why Advertisement? // After couple  years of mulling over it, I’ve decided to host advertisements on the blog. As my readers know, my wife and I have launched a non-profit organization called One Day’s Wages. In this pursuit, we’ve chosen to give our 2009 year’s wages and committed to donating an additional $32,000 over the next five years to honor our initial pledge of $100,000.  While not every penny of the advertisement funds will go towards our pledge, it is the driving motivation..

Blog History // I started blogging regularly in the summer of 2006 and am thankful for the blog’s wide, diverse, and growing “audience” and community. My blogging covers numerous topics including Christianity, Religion, Justice Issues, Non-Profits, Global Poverty, Technology, Social Media, Culture, Current News, Politics, Humor, and everything in between. I’m also a regular contributor to the Huffington Post and Sojourners blog.  Some of my blog entries have been expanded, published, or mentioned in several publications including the New York Times, Seattle Times, Seattle Post Intelligencer, and Huffington Post.  In addition, I’ve been written about or mentioned in KUOW/NPR, NBC News, CBS News, ABC World News, Puget Sound Business Journal, Christianity Today, and other local Seattle papers including the Pacific Northwest Magazine. You can learn more about my story here.

One Day’s Wages

My Instagram

Made it to 47 years old. Grateful for God's grace and all those who believed in me, prayed for me, encouraged me, invested in me, forgave me, fed me, loved me, and _____ me.

I've come a long way since my first school picture  at the age of 6 - the age I immigrated to the United States. And long way to go. You can do it, sun. Break through the clouds. I love her. Saturday morning date at Pike Market with @minheejcho. Enjoying the final day of sun before 6 months of rain and gray. Not lol'ing. Some of my moat memorable travels have been to Myanmar (otherwise known as Burma). In fact, the vision of @onedayswages began on my first visit to this country in 2006. On a recent visit, I began learning about the Rohingya people. Sadly, it has escalated to horrendous, genocidal proportions.

Thus far, about 500,000 people have been driven out from Myanmar through violence...with most going to Bangledesh...regulated to a massive refugee camp. Stateless. Undocumented. Minority groups. Dehumanized. Homes and villages destroyed. And so much more unspeakable atrocities.

Yes, it's complex and messy. It always is. But the root of this injustice as the case for so much brokeness in the world is the sin of dehumanizing one anotber as..."the other." May we see each person, including the Rohingya people, as one who is created in the image of God. It's the truth and the remedy to the incessant dehumanization that goes on in our world.

Lord, in your mercy. The obedience of discipleship which includes the work of justice is a marathon. It's long, arduous, and emotional. Be tenacious. But also take care of yourself. Create healthy rhythms. Don't burn out. We need you for the marathon. Friends, don't give up. Press on. In the midst of so much chaos in the world, may we continue to cling to the hope of the whole Gospel. May we cling unto Jesus:

Way maker!
Miracle worker!
Promise keeper!
Light in the darkness!
That is who You are!

What an encounter with the Holy Spirit at @seattlequest today. Grateful for our worship team, the gospel choir, and the Audio/Visual team. Thank you Matt, Teresita, and Chris. Please thank all the volunteers for us.
