• The joy was over-flowing on the screen and I found myself feeling a similar joy watching the celebration. The smiles, hugs, and embraces brought great good feeling to me as I watched the jubilation on the screen. I felt my spirit uplifted and wanted to embrace someone. The T-shirts they wore revealed the motto of the team: "Stay in the Fight". I could reflect on  challenges in my own life, and I felt the hope that I, too, needed to stay in the fight.

  • After months of training, the race day finally arrived. I felt a bit queasy, but also excited. I had only slept for bouts of time the night before because my body seemed to be prepared to run hours before the race began. I woke up while it was still dark, grabbed the smoothie I had prepared the night before, and hopped into my car to drive to Alameda. The drive was short, and I arrived and parked my car, breathing deeply before I stepped out to remind myself that I was indeed going to do this.


  • ‘God or No God’

     

    This past week at our evening ignite program guests speaker Mr Bento Leal gave a talk on ‘God or No God’ which led to open discussion sharing with each other our thoughts and beliefs on this topic.


  • Nature is one of many ways God expresses his love and joy for us. A place for us to enjoy with others. This past weekend 20 young adults from the Bay Area community went on a camping trip to Pinecrest Lake around 2 ½ hours North-east. It was a wonderful time being able to take a step back from our day to day life to get in touch with nature.
