Commissioned for Work | Joseph Chang

May 29, 2018 / Ester Linton

I grew up being told by people (who were miserable at their jobs), "just do something you love." I think a lot of us interpret this kind of advice to mean that our career, occupation, job (whatever we want to call it) has the ability to satisfy us and provide us with an identity. We also want our …

New Vision and Core Values

May 25, 2018 / Robert Calabretta

I'm very excited to share our new vision and core values with you, for King's Cross Church. We felt the need to revamp and refocus our vision, after our initial first 5 years as a church plant, having now been established as a particular church in our Presbytery.  My hope and prayer is that …

Rest

May 15, 2018 / Norman Yung

I’m tired. I’m burnt out. I need to take a break. These are common refrains I hear every week as I live and serve in a busy city amongst people with even busier lives. Few of us can remember the last time we felt fully ourselves, constantly moving on to the next thing on our to-do list, …

The Church: Gathered and Scattered

May 12, 2017 / Robert Calabretta

We believe God has planted King's Cross Church in Flushing to be a witness and community of Kingdom Minded, Kingdom People in this city, for this city.  As we approach summer, I want to invite you to review or for some, explain, our vision of where we are moving as a church this year. I …

Ruth: Background and Introduction

April 17, 2017 / Robert Calabretta

Dear King's Cross, This past Easter Sunday we saw Jesus open scripture and claim that all of it points to him. In other words, if we truly want to know God and have a relationship that brings life abundant--we need to find him throughout the whole of scripture.  We'd like to invite you to go …

Portraits of Grace | Hee-Jung (2 of 2)

March 14, 2017 / Ester Linton

The Bible says we need to fight sin to its death. “In your struggle against sin you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood.” (Hebrews 12:4, ESV) How am I going to be able to fight to the point of shedding blood and break the sinful pattern of anger? Sometimes, I even can’t bite …

Portraits of Grace: Hee-Jung (1 of 2)

March 7, 2017 / Ester Linton

“If I lose, if I lose, let me lose.” Gillian Welch When I am angry, it feels like nothing really matters but my feeling at the very moment. It feels like my whole being is swept up into one big black hole of anger. Even if I have to lose, I will lose. I want to lose. I am willing to lose. …

Dust to Dust, Ashes to Ashes

March 1, 2017 / Robert Calabretta

As of now, King's Cross does not follow the liturgical calendar too strictly. However, both Norman and I wanted to share a few thoughts on this day that many will be observing around the world. Ash Wednesday marks the first day of Lent, which is the solemn preparation for the church to move …

Today is Ash Wednesday

March 1, 2017 / Norman Yung

Today is Ash Wednesday: the beginning of the Lenten season. We don't officially practice Lent at King's Cross but if you'd indulge me anyway with some thoughts on the season. For those of you (like myself) who did not grow up practicing this because it was too formal/dry/dead or had the …
