Today was CCBC's 15th Church Anniversary. We had a great time celebrating it. Kanae and I really enjoyed serving in the drama today. Through the process of putting the drama together, I am reminded once again that it's not the results that are most important, but the lesson learned, lives touched and moments shared along the way. I am particularly grateful for getting to know Kanae, and sharing our hearts together for the passion of using drama to serve God.

Papa (Professor Basil Brown)'s preaching was fantastic! It was based on the Acts 2:41-47; 1 Peter 2:9,10 titled "The church as the family of God"

Matt 5:45: “Pray…That you may be children of your father who is in Heaven.”
Eph 3:14-15: “I bow my knee before the father, from whom the whole family in heaven and on earth is named.” The following are the 4 insightful points:

1. Membership in the family
It has no human source. It is from God – a new birth, and at the same time, adoption.

2. The family relationship
It is close; they share the same genes – LOVE.
The sick and trouble need prayer -- that is, actions reinforced by prayer.

3. The family members
All are different. So there is tension, which means energy and life.
Dealing with the problem member.

4. The nourishment of the family
You will find the family at the meal table
The Lord’s Table: It is not a new essential ritual. It is a meal – bread and wine. Feasting on the living Christ.
