Years ago, I stumbled upon a SMRT website, which has a page on the roles and responsibilities of a Bus Captain. The Bus Captain does not only drive the bus, but he is also responsible for the safety of his passengers. He can’t afford to be careless and reckless. He must stay alert, for his life and the lives of his passengers depend on it. For example, he has to watch out for wet and slippery roads, avoid any unusual object or potholes on the road that might cause him to lose control. He must make sure that he has sufficient rest so that he might not fall asleep at the wheel and endanger his own life and the lives of his passengers.



6 Then King Rehoboam took counsel with the old men, 

who had stood before Solomon his father while he was yet alive, …

8 But he abandoned the counsel that the old men gave him,

and took counsel with the young men who had grown up with him …

14 King Rehoboam spoke to them according to the counsel of the young men,

saying, “My father made your yoke heavy, but I will add to it. - 2 CHRONICLES 10:6-14

Don’t waste the pandemic! I was reminded,

Don’t stop meeting, our Lord is coming

Don’t stop meeting, our Lord is calling


I am looking forward to the return of our Lord, and this pandemic has brought people closer to me through different media and platforms. I am thankful for the past two pandemic years in many ways. These are my key takeaways:



I know I will get stuck in relationships somewhere along the way, but I said to myself, “It is okay, keep on listening!” I think it was just like how Joshua got stuck by my lyrics when he composed the music. And then something deeper surfaced.



I wrote my first song in the early 1980s, all in Chinese. Since then, I never thought I will write in English. God encouraged me with the first song when I wrote my sermon on Psalm 34, “I Bless My Lord All The Times”.



I have just completed 2 semesters of my studies at Singapore Bible College – one-third of my study journey leading to a Graduate Diploma in Christian Studies. I have also started working with Presbyterian Community Services for close to half a year. 


Part of my life transition during this season focuses on my experience of God’s calling and provision. It is a very personal experience. It is between me and God – personal yet not private, alone yet not alone!
