He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, "He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust." ~ Psalm 91:1-2

My father, although far from perfect, left an indelible mark on my life. He sacrificed so much for us. His absence leaves a big hole this Father’s Day. I still cannot believe he is gone. I remember calling him on this day last year. He was always happy to hear from me, even if we spoke very briefly on the phone. My dad would wait for my call every Sunday.

I miss you, Dad. I love you.

(insert: a picture of me and my father I found from boxes full of photos. my dad was an avid photographer and took tens of thousands of pictures in his lifetime.)

I really like this picture of me and dad from many years past. Where has the time gone? It is time to move forward without him but I will always have many wonderful memories with him that I will forever cherish.

Happy Birthday Father

I am profoundly injured by the loss of my father. Dad would have been 80 years old today. It pains me that he did not live to see his eighties. He was less than two months shy when he passed away. The pain and guilt only deepens for me when I think about how he died. He left this earth without me given him the things he would have wanted, like a family of my own. There is certainly peace in knowing where he is and that is with the Lord. Right now, I just miss him immensely. So I reflect on his life and the memories he gave us on this first posthumous celebration of the man that was my father, Myung Kyu Kang.

Daddy was a very kind, generous, gracious man that believed in me and his disciples more than we believed in ourselves. My dad’s eyes, they soften with age. But I remembered when those eyes would instill fear in those that opposed him while they instilled confidence in others he loved and cared for. I always felt safe and protected around my dad just by looking into his eyes. I still feel he is looking out for me now. Happy Birthday, Dad. I love you and miss you.

The value of a masterpiece is determined by the fame of the maker. If so, whose masterpiece am I? I am God’s masterpiece!

SIX STEPS OF NONVIOLENT SOCIAL CHANGE

A sequential process of nonviolent conflict-resolution and social change based on Dr. Martin Luther King’s teachings.

  1. Information Gathering – The way you determine the facts, the option for change, and the timing of pressure for raising the issue is a collective process.
  2. Education – The process for developing articulate leaders, who are knowledgeable about the issues. It is directed toward the community through all forms of media about the real issues and human consequences of an unjust situation.
  3. Personal Commitment – Means looking at your internal and external involvement in the nonviolent campaign and preparing yourself for long-term as well as short-term action.
  4. Negotiation – Is the art of bringing together your views and those of your opponent to arrive at a just conclusion or clarify the unresolved issues, at which point, the conflict is formalized.
  5. Direct Action – Occurs when negotiations have broken down or failed to produce a just response to the contested issues and conditions.
  6. Reconciliation – Is the mandatory closing step of a campaign, when the opponents and proponents celebrate the victory and provide joint leadership to implement change.

We often view the Six Steps as a phases or cycles of a campaign rather than steps because each of them embodies a cluster or series of activities related to each of the other five elements.

At the center of non-violence stands the principle of love

HEROES: My Early Inspirations

I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear
