Second-Gen: A Story of One’s Search for Belonging

Recently, I came across this photo and it triggered so many memories. This picture was taken, probably 20 years ago, in Toronto's Koreatown on Bloor St. My parents often went to that Korean Book and Video Centre to rent Korean dramas on VHS. I loved going in there as well because they had K-pop cassette …

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

  Christmas is coming!!! At the Park home, our decorations are up.  We went to a tree farm and found the perfect tree.  We took out our eclectic collection of ornaments, our little Christmas village, and our Christmas train.  And of course, our most precious decoration, the nativity scene made of olive wood straight from …

In Light of #metoo

I realize that I am jumping into this internet conversation a bit late, but I thought I would share some thoughts in light of the #metoo movement. I also recognize that being a man in this conversation may not give much weight to my words, but I hope that they will help bring awareness to …

What Now? Sept. 23 Has Come and Gone…

And I'll be honest with you... I kinda got sucked into all the theories...briefly... Some of them sound super convincing. …

Prophetic Perspectives: Hurricanes, Earthquakes and the Judgment of God

'Tis the season for hurricanes and tropical storms. Coming from a resident of Southern Ontario in Canada, I have very little understanding of what that means.  Although not long ago, I guess, we've experienced heavy winds and a few tornado touchdowns... but nothing quite like a category 4 or 5 hurricane ripping through a coastal …

North Korea and the Prayers of the Saints

A lot of fiery rhetoric is being thrown around the Korean Peninsula. North Korea has been developing and testing nuclear weapons for quite some time now, to the disdain of the United States and her allies.  Just a few days ago, NK tested their 6th nuclear bomb, this time believed to have been a powerful hydrogen …

To Live is Christ

On Sunday I preached a message on what it means to worship God at work.  Taking Philippians 1:20-21 as the biblical text, I shared how worshiping God is done when we do all things to make Christ look great.  I encouraged the congregation that this means we glorify Christ through the very work we do …
