A Time for Resilience

By Dr. Puiwing Wong The Angus Reid Institute’s new year survey reports that young adults are twice as likely than the general population to expect greater stress in 2024. The President of Angus Reid noted that, unlike what he had seen for many years, the current subgroup of young adults “is not only most pessimistic about their financial situation but, concerningly, their stress levels”[1]. This corroborates the warning from The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health that there is a growing mental health crisis, especially among young people, and the problem is global[2]. Unhealthy use of social media has been identified as a major cause[3]. Disruptions from the

Part 1 By Rev. Dr. Terence Lau, Zion Alliance Church On the Road to Emmaus 13 Now that same day two of them were going to a village called Emmaus, about seven miles from Jerusalem. 14 They were talking with each other about everything that had happened. 15 As they talked and discussed these things with each other, Jesus himself came up and walked along with them; 16 but they were kept from recognizing him.  27 And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself.  28 As they approached the village to which they were going,

The Unfathomable Deep Space and Seas

By Pastor (Dr.) Pius Lee Follow the Money Man is an adventurous creature.  In the pre-pandemic year of 2019 the US travel and tourism industry generated 1.9 trillion dollars in economic output. That was a startling 9% of the nation’s corresponding GDP of 21.38 trillion dollars in 2019. This astronomical amount of money spent by tourists globally will exponentially increase as space and deep sea tourism begin to enter into the arena of exotic adventures. Money invested and money spent reflects the heart of man. Space tourism is expected to be viable in terms of garnering a sizable customer base especially for near-earth suborbital, orbit, and lunar space

Fear Not, Shepherds!

Fear Not, Shepherds! –Luke 2:9-10     By Rev. Richard Choy It is Christmastime! Perhaps you’ve noticed that our TVs are already streaming shows and movies highlighting the spirit of the season. The stores we frequent have festive displays of products to make this time of year memorable. It is the season of good cheer and merry celebrations. It is the season of being thankful for family and friends. It is the season of caring and sharing our blessings. The world is caught up in the spirit of Christmastime, yet deep down, we realize that it is merely a varnish of sentimentality over the way things are.   The reality

HUMAN FOREST

By Dr. Paul Zung Suzanne Simard has produced research that has drawn our attention to how trees communicate with each other and share resources. We have learned that tree roots are interwoven with the delicate threads of fungal mycelium to form a vast underground network. Through this mycorrhizal network, trees exchange water, nutrients, and information about the environment. It is all happening right underneath our feet, below the forest floor. If you are new to this idea, please watch the short video link below summarizing what we have learned in the last few decades. It’s hard to resist seeing the trees as a metaphor for human society:  These

[Good Questions] What is Truth? Part 2

Rev. James Hung In the article I wrote last time, I shared three characteristics of truth with you. First, the truth is fact. Second, truth is trustworthy. Third, truth is correct. Besides these, truth has the following characteristics as well: Truth is enduring It is common sense that one plus one equals two. Is it a truth? Yes. Why? Because truth has the characteristic of being unchanging. One plus one equals two never changes. The Lord Jesus said He is the Truth. Hebrews 13:8, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” After knowing Jesus, people would also testify that He is the Truth. He remarked,

[Good Questions] What is Truth?

Writer: Rev. James Hung <Truth Monthly> publishes articles based on the truth, yet people may ask, “What is truth?” Now, let’s take a close look here. Rulers and religious people didn’t reason with the truth. “What is truth?” Pontius Pilate, the Governor who judged Jesus, had also asked this question. The Bible records that Pilate returned to the palace, summoned Jesus and asked him, “Are you the king of the Jews?” “Is that your own idea,” Jesus asked, “or did others talk to you about me?” “Am I a Jew?” Pilate replied. “Your own people and chief priests handed you over to me. What is it you have

Fight for Freedom – Keep our Youth and Children Safe from Exploitation

By Gladys M. Did you know the Bible has 2000 Scriptures about poverty and justice? “Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow.” (Isaiah 1:17). “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful. I know that full well.” (Psalm 139:13-14) “Therefore, it is not His design and purpose for His sons and daughters to be bought and sold. God’s heart breaks over-exploitation. And so, what does the Lord call of you? To act justly,

Master Strokes for Good Parenting

Author: Helen Man Common Phenomena Some criminals defend themselves as victims of child abuse that moulds them into executors of violence. Here are some observations of child psychologists: Children who grow up in a hostile family become hostile adults. Children who have been bullied very often end up having low self-esteem. Growing up in a mean family will cultivate a mean and overbearing person. A violent and formidable family usually raises children of violence or fear. If a child grows up in a family of jealousy, gossiping, and arguments, he will most likely become jealous, doubtful, and scheming. Growing up with kind, loving, reasonable, and trustworthy parents, children
