Eating your pie and having it too

Sep 04, 2018 in Personality

My eldest son started college this month. To be honest, his interest in pursuing post-secondary education came to us as a complete surprise. You see, from the very beginning he was never the studious sort. Looking back in my journal, I found this piece of work that I wrote as he was completing his first […]

To pseudonym or not to pseudonym

May 22, 2013 in Personality

Back in the 90s I created a persona for myself. So help me out, people: Do I keep the pseudonym, or recreate my musical brand under my real name?

Kristen tells the story of the communal chamber pot

I should be thankful that we live in an age with running water, and proper waste removal. While on our tour of Fort Erie, the guide told us one of the reasons the Fort smelled so bad back in the day, was because they shared a communal chamber pot between the 200-plus soldiers and other residents. My mistake. I thought it was the laundry tub.

Travel planning for family fun and finanace

Jul 25, 2009 in Personality

From August 4 to the 20 I’ll be taking the family to visit my wife’s parents in Ontario. In addition to all the fun family stuff, I plan to meet up with other web developers, technical communicators, musicians, worship leaders, and social media afficionados while I’m there.

Pretty exciting stuff. Send me a private message if you have time to meet for coffee.

Water my camels and I’ll water yours

Jul 16, 2009 in Personality

Last weekend I took my family on a trip to visit my friend Caleb who pastors a church in Port Alice, a village in North Vancouver Island. Along the drive up the coast I had a lot of time to think. My kids slept in the back seats, and my wife focused her eyes on the unexpected conditions of the road ahead as we joked about how dark it was. Then the thought hit me to pray for all my single friends, who drive this road alone or with friends, and don’t experience the unspeakable joy that comes with being (in my case) a husband and father.

I prayed for my friends that God would provide for them a suitable help-meet who would offer to water their camels. That picture stuck with me, and now I can’t get the idea out of my head. I shared my prayer with Caleb, who in turn brought the topic up when we went out for coffee with his friends. After explaining the idea to this group of young married couples, Caleb has taken off on the idea and I’m finding comments in his friends’ Facebook sites and everything. This is going viral!

If you’re really daring, please visit Caleb’s blog, The Almost Weekly Report and leave a comment that says that you are excited for the work he’s doing at Ocean View Church in Port Alice and that you prayed for him to find a wife who is willing to water his camels, and he willing to water hers.

In my next few posts I plan to expand on this idea in the hopes of eventually writing a book out out of it. I will provide links to different resources on marriage and family relationships that I have found especially helpful.

Revelation doesn’t pay the bills

tonychung.ca blog design 2007 to 2009

tonychung.ca blog design circa 2007 to 2009

It’s already June. I haven’t redesigned this site yet. At the time of writing it still uses the original theme I installed back in 2007. At the same time, I have also developed ideas for several blog entries that I believe many will find helpful to reconcile issues of life, faith, and vocation. I’ve started 26 draft posts and have a handwritten journal for two more. I’ll be completing these draft posts over time, so bear with me. Right now there is too much life to live to be able to dedicate any time to this blog.
