Our Pastor, Dr. Sungho Lee
If you are like me, you would feel from time to time that you are nobody.
I felt that I did not have any talent and good looks.
I felt that I did not matter to anybody.
Only when I met Jesus I found out that I mattered even to God!
As William Shakespeare wrote,
“Like to the lark at break of day arising
From sullen earth, sings hymns at heaven’s gate;
For thy sweet love remembered such wealth brings
That then I scorn to change my state with kings.”
I pray that you feel that you matter to everybody in our church. I pray that you should find purpose of your life and partners in mission in our church. I am thankful that you are you!"
