Earlier this year, I went through a circumstance that drained the life out of me (including the Christmas spirit). One of my siblings just came back from a Missions Trip to Cambodia with Jordan International Aid; and after hearing her experience, it truly set everything into perspective. In 2006, I was honored to experience a Missions Trip to India and my life was forever changed. We are beyond blessed in America and as Christians, often times, we take God’s blessings and Grace for granted. The greatest gift of Christmas is Grace and we are the extended hands of the new born King.
As your family and friends gather together this Christmas, remember, your minuscule circumstances, unfortunate situations and even family feuds cannot compare to what’s really going on around the World this Christmas Evening. View this short documentary and you will understand the true meaning of Christmas.

Have you ever wanted to discuss the elephant in the room? I’m currently Assistant Pastor of Grace City Church in Federal Way, WA. “Let’s Talk” is a new video blog we launched to discuss real life issues.
Forgiveness is such a common and broad topic, but we narrowed it down to two themes that are uncommon: Myth of Forgiveness and the Call to Radical Forgiveness. John chapter 13 verses 34 and 35 reveals a New Commandment:
” So now I am giving you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other. Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples.”
How can we love people that have brought hurt into our lives? What do you consider unforgivable? New Commandment: LOVE EACH OTHER, and the world will know that you are followers of Christ. Jesus’ released forgiveness freely (Luke 23:34), will you?
