No, I’m not giving up Social Media for Lent. My 2013 Lenten discipline is to give thanks to God for those who have helped me to grow into who God intends for me to be and become. See all of my 2013 Lenten Thanks here.
I was 18-years-old when I first attended a national Presbyterian Church (USA) church event. I flew to Chicago to attend the National Asian Presbyterian Council (NAPC) annual meeting and from then on, my life was never the same. Friend, mentors and colleagues have come into my life via NAPC and my understanding of the church has been continually shaped and formed by those relationships. Just looking at this picture from a National Asian Presbyterian Youth Council Gathering and memories of laughter, growth and faith come flooding back. Great times.
Today I give thanks for my friends and colleagues from NAPC.
