Portraits of Grace: Minnow (2 of 2)

December 20, 2016 / Ester Linton

This year I had a identity crisis about my work and career. I absolutely love what I do but as I looked five, ten years ahead as a husband and hopefully a father, I wondered if a freelancer’s life was sustainable. I updated my resume (the last time I did that was 2009) so that I could start …

December 13, 2016 / Ester Linton

I got into photography on a whim. For anyone who’s known me before 2007, they’d know I had zero interest in photography. I thought it would be cool to buy a DSLR and take some nice photos, but I didn’t know how much I’d love it.  I got deep into it and often dreamt what it would be like to be a …

Portraits of Grace: Albert Cheung

“Growing up, I never really knew my father. The evidence that he lived in the house was apparent. Glasses of red wine and the smell of cognac filled the dinner table. Dirty hands and body odor was indicative of a long day as an engineer in the MTA tunnels. We’d watch the Yankees on weeknights. …

Who do you want to be when you grow up? -Nathaniel: “I want to be an astronaut and discover new places in the universe and the galaxy.” -Alistair: “I want to be a firefighter so I can save people. I can help people and put out fires.” What do you think about your brother? -Nathaniel: …

When I married Lisa, I don’t ever really remember discussing the specifics of how many kids we wanted and I don’t even think she knew how much it meant to me to be a father one day. As we approached our 30’s, we were already married a few years and thought it ‘was time for us’ to finally start a …

I’ve always known that I wanted to be a father, but I never imagined how challenging and frustrating it would be at times. On the flipside however, I never imagined how amazingly rewarding and fulfilling it could be. I think one of the greatest challenges of being a parent is finding the teachable …

Portraits of Grace: Vivian

November 8, 2016 / Ester Linton

The week Aria was born was one of the most joyous and challenging times of my life. She was three weeks early and I had a rush of emotions that I could not sleep for three days straight. I could hear every peep that came out of her and even though she was sleeping most of the time I would rush over …

Why do we recite the creed?

October 29, 2015 / Norman Yung

About a month ago, King's Cross introduced the Apostle's Creed to our regular Sunday Worship liturgy. I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth. I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin …

Prayer Beyond Petition Towards a Person

October 28, 2015 / Peter Ong

Dear King's Cross Friends, This Sunday we kicked off our new sermon series called “Considering Prayer: A Pilgrimage Through Psalms, Epistles and Gospels.” It was something that was stirred as we approached our third year anniversary as a church congregation that we as a community have so much …

I was catching up with my friend one day and suddenly came to a point where I said, “It’s difficult going to therapy and facing all these things, but I am proud and happy to be a woman of God.” That was probably the first time saying that specific thought out loud. I started to laugh uncontrollably…
