ECC Summer Conference at Camp Berachah

Posted by seanho on Sun 13 August 2006

I took one last trip down to Seattle to visit my old home church and catch up with old friends; it was so much fun! There were terribly few people from the English congregation, but I had a wonderful time catching up with old family friends from the Chinese congregations: so many wise and mature Christian brothers and sisters that I had taken for granted while I was growing up. Coming back this time, my eyes opened to just how cool they are and how much I have still to learn from them! Rev. Paul Shen delivered a powerful and engaging series of messages on the church's identity as the dwelling of Christ through the Holy Spirit. I was especially struck by the reminder given in his last message in Sunday service, of the parallel drawn in Ephesians 5 between the husband-wife relationship and Christ to the church -- strong marriages and strong families are the building blocks of a strong church.
