Uncancelled

Posted by Tim LaTour on

The word “cancel” has taken on a whole new meaning in the last few years. It seems that with our social media presence and the fact that tweets, status updates, and messages don’t get deleted, people can “go back in time” and find something that someone has said and...

Family Reunion

Posted by Tim LaTour on

I haven’t been to a family reunion in decades. I’m not sure what your family reunions are like, but our family’s reunions were very large. Now, we’d have smaller, regular family gatherings for holidays and other occasions with our extended family. But family reunions...

Are we almost there?

Posted by Tim LaTour on

One day a couple of years ago, my son, my dog, and I all went on a hike. We decided to climb Lantau Peak…from sea level. It was going to be a journey going up to 934 meters. We had never done it before and we had no clue what we were getting ourselves into. The hike started off playful...

Christmas is Cancelled

Posted by Tim LaTour on

Every year, Christmas comes and goes. Chestnuts are roasting on the streets of Hong Kong. Starbucks changes their cups. Decorations are taken out of boxes and hung around homes across the city.  People scramble to get gifts for their friends and family; meals are prepared for fellowship...

Hide and Seek

Posted by Tim LaTour on

I have a confession: sometimes I play hide and seek. I know I’m not a kid anymore but I still feel the need to play this game. That’s right, I said “need.” I don’t know about you but I can get distracted pretty easily. It’s a struggle I think we all share...

The Spirit Made Me Do It

Posted by Tim LaTour on

We’ve just had two consecutive weeks of baptism ceremonies at Island ECC and we’re going to have one more next week! That’s how much a typhoon can change our schedules. We love Baptism Sunday at our church. It’s always so encouraging to see people share their life...

Ultimate Sweetness

Posted by Tim LaTour on

We just started a new sermon series called “Sweet and Sour” that is taking a look at how we are to have life to the full, but there will also be trouble. I’ve been reading through the book of Acts lately and there was a passage that struck me as somewhat of a “sweet and...
