Where Does My Help Come From?

Published March 12, 2020

These are uncertain times. The daily news related to the coronavirus comes at a breakneck pace. Tonight, President Trump has suspended travel to Europe and the NBA their season after a Utah Jazz player tested positive for the novel coronavirus. Our family is figuring out what in person class cancellations and finals mean for our two University of California students. The recommendations to stay home and socially distance make more sense as the situation seems to worsen. As I’m on leave now from the church, I cannot speak to policies and guidance for the church’s ministry. In emails I am […]

Pruning and Fruitfulness

Published February 24, 2020

What is your favorite chore? You might not have one since a chore typically is a task you need to do, but probably don’t necessarily enjoy. If I do need to pick one mine is vacuuming. I find a satisfaction in seeing the floor clean of dust and debris after running the machine over the carpets or tile. My least favorite? Yard work. Growing up my dad made me work on his yard. Our house sat on a quarter acre on a hill in Concord, California. Dad loved growing Asian fruit trees and vegetables. He grew up on a farm […]

Starting My Personal Leave

Published February 16, 2020

I started my four-month personal leave on February 1st. I’ve shared before how I am truly grateful to God and the church for allowing me to take a sabbatical-like break from my regular responsibilities at church. I’d like to utilize the Pastor’s Corner on our church website to share updates and thoughts from my time on leave. The leave started in a fitting way at Redwood Christian Park in the Santa Cruz mountains. I went into the conference feeling fatigued from preparing for the leave and finishing up with various ministries. At the conference I’m glad I could worship, fellowship, […]

Welcome to Pastor Howard’s Corner

Published January 29, 2019

Welcome to my corner! In my bedroom I have a corner where my desktop computer sits and I like to write. I also have an office at church with a single desk. It’s where I’ve counseled, prepared lessons, organized, prayed and strategized for ministry. Everyone needs a space, a corner if you will, to process and engage what’s important and truly valuable. In this corner of the church website I hope to share my thoughts, updates, and church happenings. As 2019 approached I prayed and sought ways to better connect with the church, particularly our English-speaking members. This year I’m […]
