General Tip for Worship
Written by Conrade Yap   
Friday, 22 January 2010 12:38

 

There are some useful tips to learn from tradition. One of my favourites comes from the Anglican parish.

 

"Before the Service, Talk to God;

During the Service, Listen to God;

After the Service, Talk to one another."

 

May your Sundays be guided by this simple 3-step instruction.

All-Weather Christians Wanted

ALL-WEATHER CHRISTIANS WANTED

DATE: SATURDAY, JANUARY 02, 2010

 

This is my first post of the year. I twittered today the following: "A Church filling up with fair-weathered Christians is not growing but shrinking."


Church Assets and Liabilities

 

The greatest asset any Church can have is the presence of disciples who are prepared to follow Christ all the way. Not only do they form the core of the Church, they encourage people to grow with them. On the other hand, the biggest liability a Church has is the presence of people who flee, the moment the church does not seem to 'meet their needs' or when persecution arrives. Such people tempts fence-sitters to follow suit. When a church grows in quantity by people wanting only the fun during sunny Summer, these very people can also abandon the church during the cold depressing Winter. Such people are what I call fair-weathered. Disciples of Christ, rain or shine, wind or snow will stick with the Church to edify, to build up and to prepare for God's kingdom to come. Blessed is the Church whose parish is full of them.

Looking for Faith in all the wrong places - “GWYTK @ Facebook”

Written by: Conrade Yap

Date: 5 Feb 2010

[The problem with God-Wants-You-To-Know Facebook Application]

Some of my Facebook friends are joining the next hip faith-based application called: “God Wants You to Know” (GWYTK). On a daily basis, inspirational devotionals will be sent to friends who sign up for free at the popular social networking Facebook platform. The application promises to “bring you back to love, to strength, to happiness. And in times of great need, ask for a prayer, and be supported by the caring prayers of friends around the world you never knew you had. ” With more than 6000 friends, and astonishing 1.8 million 'active users' per month, the application has certainly scratched where many people is itching. As I ponder on this new popular platform, GWYTK, I want to express some of my reservations.
