The Oikos\\ The Condition

"May God bless you with a restless discomfort

about easy answers, half-truths, and superficial relationships,

so that you may seek truth boldly and love deep within your heart.

May God bless you with holy anger

at injustice, oppression, and exploitation of people,

so that you may tirelessly work for justice, freedom, and peace among all people.

May God bless you with the gift of tears

to shed for those who suffer from pain, rejection, starvation, or the loss of all that they cherish,

so that you may reach out your hand to comfort them and transform their pain into joy.

在飞云之下 我看着海峡

前面风很大,还没有比我的 神大。

It would be a lie to say that I am good. My soul is affected by these happenings, though I am surprised that I am surprised at how these could ever happen. I broke on Monday when the sheer yearning for God's perfected kingdom combined with the deep realisation of how broken I am, how broken the team is, how broken the organisation is.
That was a good beautiful kind of brokenness I guess.

More often than not, the hardness of heart and pride wraps up the God-centred grief, warps it …

Cry Heart, But Never Break

I am glad that I have a really meaningful (not well-taken but whatever) photo of you.

In the photo, you were looking on at L. pen down his response to: 'What is Man's purpose in life?"
We were all wearing the camp shirt emblazoned with Romans 10:13-15. How beautiful is your feet!

Thank you for your kind cheery heart that looks out for those on the fringes and seeks greater love amidst the strife. I am very sad, but also somewhat joyful too. You have brought people together like how you would have wanted and worked for.



Father of compassion and God of all comfort, You have not left us orphans in the grief. 
Even as I grief, not just for this dear child of Yours but also for mum's response this morning, it turns into something beautiful by faith. 
Watch and wait and see, what is yet to be
