Post Easter Reflections

Sorry for doing this... late... post... Couldn't get on due to revision for midyear exams :[]

5 years ago. I had begun my journey of faith. Refreshed, Renewed. This year, at Easter Vigil, My dad's on his journey. I pray for his journey.

This year at Easter Vigil, I found another perspective of viewing our hearts. This time, it's the tomb and the rock that sealed the tomb. If you were at the service last night, F Clifford would have told a story during homily.

There was a school that oragnized a Play in America. They had people to act as all the main characters in the story of the Lord's Passion. But there was this one boy. Who was round (shouldn't say fat as I am too). The teachers in that school couldn't find a role for him. Until... They got him to play the rock at Jesus' tomb. [Laughter through the church] So for all the 3 days of the performance, he rolled away from the tomb perfectly, much to the delight of the audience.

From this, this is a new experi…

Evangelization & Palm Sunday

Firstly, Happy Palm Sunday and Hopefully you have a Holy Holy Week Ahead!

Secondly, Yesterday, at the Parish Assembly, the theme was Evangelizing with Joy. Evangelization. What do we usually do when we Evangelize? For me, Evangelization back then was to give anyone who asked all the information I know about God. But everything changed when the Fire nation attacked... I mean everything changed after the assembly. I was thinking, but I did not dare ask fearing that it might be irrelevant. But for a schoolboy like me, I always hear evangelizing in workplaces, or wherever you go. But what about in schools? Then I was talking to one of my mum's friends, and he said, "You don't really need any activity or to start anything, just show it with your life!"

I froze. That's another way I could have done it! Live my life happily, they will know we are Christians and we're happy about it! So what I can say is that, just live your life in a happy way, and show them what Ch…

Temptations

It's another Sunday, and another few weeks to Easter. Time Flies... Too fast!

Yesterday, I went with my mum to attend this session of a programme conducted by the Little Rock Bible Ministry known as 'Walking Towards Eternity' the session that day was about 'Managing your appetites', and several readings were mentioned. Sorry if no songs came to mind though.

These are the readings which I picked out from the session's video screening:

Matthew 4: 2-4:
2He fasted for forty days and forty nights, and afterwards he was famished. 3The tempter came and said to him, ‘If you are the Son of God, command these stones to become loaves of bread.’ 4But he answered, ‘It is written,
“One does not live by bread alone,
   but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.”’

Matthew 19: 16-22
The Rich Young ManThen someone came to him and said, ‘Teacher, what good deed must I do to have eternal life?’ And he said to him, ‘Why do you ask me about what is good? There is only one who is go…

Purity - Thursday 3 April 2014

Today, right after design studies , I was telling a few seniors (Sup Christabel and Darryl) about colour theory and psychology and stuff. Then I was looking through the Psychology for the colour White, which was pretty mush about purity. Specifically. Then while were joking around... Then these few words struck me. Sorry Christabel, if that wasn't exactly what you said, but it was, 'Go and Purify your mind lah.'

And that took me back to 2009. My baptism year. All white. Entering and exiting the baptismal pool. Got changed and back in church with our gowns on, ready to be anointed... And then the Nicene Creed... 'I confess One Baptism for the forgiveness of Sins,'
You might be wondering how does White, Purity, Baptism and that portion of the Nicene Creed... But in my perspective, Our One Baptism for the forgiveness of sins is like the ultimate purifying of our bodies, hearts and minds to face the lives ahead. Despite being forgiven and With changed hearts, but still…

Story 1 - 2 April 2014

Professor : You are a Christian, aren’t you, son ? Student : Yes, sir. Professor: So, you believe in GOD ? Student : Absolutely, sir. Professor : Is GOD good ? Student : Sure. Professor: Is GOD all powerful ? Student : Yes. Professor: My brother died of cancer even though he prayed to GOD to heal him. Most of us would attempt to help others who are ill. But GOD didn’t.

30 March - 4th Sunday of Lent

Hello there! It's a Sunday today, and it's the 4th Sunday of Lent, just a couple of weeks more till Easter. Last night was really a true bonding session, yet it was a night for me to reflect on my life as well. While jumping on that trampoline, I had 2 new perspectives of our lives. Either the trampoline, or us jumping on it. Firstly. The trampoline itself. Without the frame, it can't do anything. What a waste, right? Well, for a trampoline to work, it'll need a strong frame to support it. Without a strong frame, of course it'll collapse under weight! So I feel like our lives are dependent on God, like the cloth (or whatever that's called) that has been attached to the metal frame. If We are not dependent on God for support, when the storms of life rage on, we will not be able to stand up and brave it! We will collapse! But in another perspective, I feel like we are like the people jumping on the trampoline. God has been supporting us all this while. And even …
