    Forgive the lack of posts

    by  • January 22, 2014 • 0 Comments

    Forgive the lack of posts… My original intent with this blog was to write twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and when it got busy just Tuesdays thereafter. Then it got really busy.  And the kind of writing I like to do—the kind that restores me, the kind that clears my head, the kind...

    Meant to be One

    by  • May 6, 2013

    Earlier today, this essay originally posted as “Only by Grace” on Afrik Advantage, my friend Robyn Afrik’s ministry blog.  Robyn speaks publicly on issues of multiculturalism, reconciliation, identity formation and adoption.  At her invitation, I wrote this.   Since I was very small watching Sesame Street, I knew it. I knew it again as...

    This blog v. asianamericanchristian.org

    by  • March 7, 2013

    What is this blog, Incarnate Thinking, and what’s the difference between this blog and asianamericanchristian.org? Perhaps too obviously and simply put, this blog is a place for my own thoughts, and my mine alone. Asianamericanchristian.org cannot be about me and should never be. Though no work is without its bias and I have editorial...

    More musings…

    by  • February 26, 2013 • 4 Comments

    I really do not have it all together; I suppose to be fair to myself, I am in the process of getting it together, of starting a new discipline of writing weekly.  And by “writing,” what I mean is reflective writing, writing more my style,...

    My favorite Valentine’s Day

    by  • February 19, 2013 • 1 Comment

    I realize most Valentine’s Day posts happen before or on the actual day, but I find myself treasuring things more after the fact than ahead of time.  Though I just celebrated my first Valentine’s Day as a married woman, I keep thinking of my favorite Valentine’s Day as a single person. Years ago, I...

    Forgive me.  Am a little behind because of a scare of asthma and a cold. Today’s post needs some significant rewriting, and it seems wiser to do just that. Hope you are well. Grace

    Seeing to love the ugly

    by  • February 5, 2013 • 0 Comments

    I am slow to learn. I suppose this would be hard for anybody to learn, but for me it has been many, many years of God teaching me how to love in this way.  In some measure, to love is to see the ugliest parts. God has been expanding my notion of what it...

    How I realized I was American

    by  • January 29, 2013 • 0 Comments

    Canadian comedian Russell Peters jokes that he was a rah-rah Indian until he flew to India for the first time and took one step off the plane. Assaulted by smells, noise and crowds, he realized in that instant that he was Canadian. For me, it took a visit to the UK and a residence...

    Known

    by  • January 17, 2013 • 0 Comments

    We all feel loved in different ways, and for me, being known is high on the list. Though encouraged to bring “all of my Asian-ness to the table” and to “be myself,” there weren’t enough Asians at InterVarsity’s National Service Center for others to notice my “Asian-ness” let alone know that aspect of me....
