Ah yes. Church Camp 2005. June 13 - 17. My predictions came true: I did work more than rest during those 5 days. But I've got no regrets.

The last church camp I'll have in a long time. Sigh.

6 months of 2005 have gone by. And what a halfyear it's been.

The past three weeks have been a G-Max bungee ride hooked up to a perpetual motion machine. From a pastor's conference to Church Camp in KL, straight into Outward Bound on Ubin, it's been a fitting climax to the end of my much celebrated postarmy sabbatical.

Yesterday I just stood there in the front of the pews in church and was filled with awe. The youth choir were singing their voices out, aural waves of yearning and worship washing over me. I whispered to myself, "This is where I step back and let Him carry us through this desert."

Right now, I'm turning my gaze to Rhode Island and the next few years. And I gotta go back and read my 16-page deed document with A*STAR.

What a halfyear it's been.

What's Your Thinking Style?

This is the penultimate week before Church Camp 2005, and I've already got so much to think about.

I've got 2 conferences this week. I had the privilage of listening to 2 American pastors. I think I'll adjust nicely to American preaching.

I have much to say tonight, but I'll leave it at this:

I know where my destination is, but I don't know which path I'll have to take.
I cannot tell you this secret, for I fear it's a mistake
If you let me hold your hand, I'd be further away from home
Don't let me fly away, or will you let me walk alone?
