Listening says "You matter to me"

Image
Listening is a lost art these days. We don’t listen well and we aren’t used to being listened to. When Job was in great pain, his friends were “miserable comforters” (Job 16:2), for he complained: “Oh, that I had someone to hear me!” (Job 31:35). Job was not alone in his longing. We all want to be heard and listening is an effective way of helping others.

Listening says, “You matter to me.” When you fidget, glance at your watch and appear to be rushed - you’re not listening. When you fail to maintain eye contact - you’re not listening. When you don’t ask follow-up questions - you’re not listening. Yes. Listening is hard work and most of us are unwilling to set aside our own  timetable and tendency to hurry on to our next destination. May you and I, by God’s grace acquire a listening ear.

Abba! Father!

Image
When we cry, “Abba! Father!” The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory. - Romans 8:15-17
St Paul is making clear to us that we are children of God, just as Christ was God's son. Because of Christ with can call God "Abba", which is like saying "papa". Christ, through his death and resurrection, made it possible for each of us to have an intimate relationship with God and to inherit all that Jesus inherited.

How is your faith enriched by knowing that you can call God Abba or Papa? What does it say to you about Christ's love and his desire to be your brother?

Let us pray
Abba, papa, Jesus taught us that we are your children and that you desire a close and intimate relationship with us. Help us to remember this when we approach you. Amen

Queen of Holy Rosary

Image
The month of October is dedicated to the Holy Rosary. The best way to celebrate the Month of the Holy Rosary is, of course, to pray the rosary daily.Hence Choicees were also geared up for Rosary at Assumption's Church.

        Guess who made the special appearances from C100?? Our in house pharmacist, Cecilia  from C100 came from Klang, despite the bad traffic and heavy rain. Jason Joseph too surprised us by showing up as we did not see his name in the attendee's list!!!

       The Holy Rosary was led by our Dr.John and Lincoln. We used mobile app named as "Laudate" to pray rosary since we weren't able to collect the books from Ray's place. It was a wonderful evening to pray together with Choice Family. Let's hope that we will continue to pray rosary together with Choice family, even after the month of October 😂



  Then after the rosary, apa lagi??? We had dinner and had so much fun together.
 I wonder what's that caught Judith's attention at that tim…

Reflection - St Ignatius of Loyola

Image
'They who are engaged with the salvation of their neighbor, will gain more by a humble modesty than by an authoritative manner, and will gain victory sooner in retreat than in combat.'

- St. Ignatius of Loyola

Let us pray:
Dearest Lord,
teach me to be generous;
teach me to serve You as You deserve;
to give and not to count the cost,
to fight and not to heed the wounds,
to toil and not to seek for rest,
to labour and not to ask for reward
save that of knowing I am doing Your Will.

Post CEKL #100 Fellowship Day + Pool Party

Image
With the completion of CEKL 100 it was with great honor and humility that everybody come together to shed some steam (and also some clothes) to what has become the post-party for the Choice English Weekend. 




The day started out with a warming up session of ball tossing in the pool. Absolutely fun but with no purpose. Just like the match between Man United and Liverpool that night. 


If you did not try the killer combo of the chicken curry and fried rice (so fluffy yet so crisp) then you have no idea what you have been missing. According to an expert witness testimony and C100 participant, the spice selection and seasoning for the curry was perfectly executed. Since he is also an established Master Chef we definitely will take his word for it. 


With the economy hitting an all time low and money hard to come by, philanthropist Melvin graciously decided to donate his antique and supposedly valuable coin collection (which was just as antique as he is). But all this with one stipulation. …
