Ways to Help Missionary Won went to Haiti in 2016 with the sole purpose of spreading the Gospel. I remember the day when she was commissioned as a missionary at Immanuel Church. Her impassioned prayer convicted all of us and she had a true, hot to the touch, fire for God that could be felt even from the pews. She served in Haiti in humility and boldness, relying on God for all things. She wrote in a letter: “God will fulfill his will to cover every corner of Haiti with the knowledge of Him by raising up youth. They will rise up in fiery passion for the glory of God.” Her mission was for the pe ..read more

“My good God, Father, and Savior, grant me aid by your Holy Spirit to now work fruitfully in my vocation, which is from you, all in order to love you and the people around me rather than for my own gain and glory. Give me wisdom, judgment, and prudence, and freedom from my besetting sins. Bring me under the rule of true humanity. Let me accept with patience whatever amount of fruitfulness or difficulty in my work that you give me this day.

Quote on Love
Immanuel Church Blog
by Steve Ko

In a reflection on marriage and career goals in the New York Times, Esau McCaulley writes: "Love always has an element of death to self." This challenges the modern definition of love as intense positive feeling or interest. Real love goes deeper than interest or pleasure. According to Tim Keller, to love somebody means to place your happiness inside their happiness. Sometimes that means you won’t immediately be fulfilled. In his book “The Meaning of Marriage,” Keller says the purpose of marriage is not self-fulfillment but self-sacrifice. This goes against our culture’s definition of love and ..read more

George Marsden on Jonathan Edwards
Immanuel Church Blog

“The Reformed system of doctrine is not just a device for ensuring orthodoxy. Rather, it becomes like a lens that helps us bring into focus the enthralling beauty of a loving God at the center of all that is. All other lesser beauties pale beside this one. It is a divine and supernatural light that illumines all other true beauties and shows them ultimately as exemplars of God’s love… Edwards himself would have said, it has compelling power in itself that the loving God uses to draw the underserving into the Trinitarian love at the center of reality. Those who recognize the perfect beauty of t ..read more
