206. We Passed The Audit Review

Last Sunday, the KSC audit team finalized the audit review for ESC 2020 financial report. Thus, it concluded our first yearly financial reporting responsibility as an independent congregation. We will conduct the audit earlier next year to present the review in the annual congregation meeting. As I shared before, we didn’t pursue financial autonomy for the sake of more freedom. We believed that increased responsibility would generate increased participation and a sense of ownership from our members, which is a…

205. Power of “Voluntary-No”

“10 Days Early Morning Prayer” finished well last week. Fifteen people gathered on Zoom every morning at 6 am and prayed with other partners in 5 different groups. Many have shared that they didn’t expect starting their day with prayer would make that much difference in their productivity and spirituality. Some shared that it was a “game-changer.” Some may wonder, “What is so special about waking up early? Doesn’t God answer our prayer regardless of when?” Yes and No. Yes,…

204. Delayed Hope Makes The Heart Sick

The COVID number does not seem to go down. To make matters worse, the COVID variant is now being reported to have emerged. The Pandemic probably won’t end sooner than anticipated. The question is: What do we do now? Dr. Victor Frankle, who was imprisoned in a Nazi concentration camp, wrote in “Man’s search for meaning” that those who hoped to be freed by a specific date (like Christmas) had a burst of energy to survive, but when they weren’t,…

203. How To Not Become Impatient

Our first “10 Days Early Morning Prayer” is going well. A total of 15 people have signed up, five groups of 3 people are praying for each other and learning how to pray in a balanced way. I half-jokingly shared to pastors that I initially feared having “a group” prayer with two other people. God exceeded my expectation again. I thought about the real benefit of starting the day with prayer, as I was praying for the participants. Because waking…

Living Life (12) Testimony — Daniel Kim

Hey everyone, it’s Daniel. Today, I want to talk about how Living Life impacted my life. To start, I want to go back to about a year ago. At that time, I was living in Waterloo as a student, so the biggest things on my mind were doing well in my classes, meeting new people, overall living my university life to the fullest. These things were mostly everything I could think about. So, my church life before Living Life started…
