The Battle Continues…

The last couple of months at the Lam Household were marked by the usual summer busyness (craziness) that comes with having young children: Summer camps, day trips, figuring out activities that get the kids out of the house and enjoying the good weather, getting caught up in Blue Jays fever...frankly…

Among the Ashes…what’s next?

Now that Among the Ashes the concert is done, a few people have asked me what is the next step on the journey. Before thinking about what is next, I want to savor the wonderful evening that we spent together. THANK YOU SO MUCH for being there and for making…

I am an ordained minister. I believe in the Bible. I follow Jesus. And I rejoice in yesterday’s US Supreme Court decision.

Yesterday the US Supreme court handed down a historic, landmark decision, legalizing homosexual marriages across the entire nation. The polarizing effect of the ruling was seen almost immediately with strong voices from both "sides" responding. As a Christian, I believe there is a way we can approach the decision without…

倒數日記(三)

六月十三日。 距離演唱會最後七日。 當我正應該收拾心情預備明晚的最後綵排時,忽然有一種說不出的筋疲力盡。 準備一個音樂會, 無論大細,基本工作都是少不了:揀歌, 練歌, 打點一切,這些都已習以為常。疲倦,壓力,都慣了。 但今晚所困擾我的,卻是一個很基本的問題: "你究竟搞咁多嘢為乜?" 為愛好音樂?間中約朋友飲酒Jam歌豈不更好玩過癮? 為名為利?更加不用說。 忽然記起好朋友造給我的一張卡。卡的設計是用海星的故事。故事的教訓:幫得一個得一個。 提醒自己:搞咁多嘢,係為希望可以幫到人。 幫得一個得一個。 "我餓了、你們給我喫 .渴了、你們給我喝.我作客旅、你們留 我住.我赤身露體、你們給我穿.我病了、你們看顧我.我在監裡、你們來看我。義人就回答說、主阿、我們甚麼時候見你餓了給你喫、渴了給你喝...又甚麼時候 見你病了或是在監裡、來看你呢。 王要回答說、我實在告訴你們、這些事你們既作在我這弟兄中一個最小的身上、就是作在我身上了。" (馬太福音 25:35-40) 最後七日,請為我們祈禱,和幫我們邀請你覺得應該出席的朋友來。

倒數日記(二)

Today in the news i heard the story of Dr. Matthew Morton. Dr. Morton was a young doctor living the perfect life: Great career, beautiful family, bright future when he was diagnosed with incurable brain cancer. That was in 2008 and he was just 32 years old. However, rather than…

倒數日記(一)

六月二日。距離演唱會十八日。 正式進入倒數。 正如以往每次開 concert 一樣,所有熟識的感覺。如好友一般回來探望我:期待, 興奮, 緊張, 感恩, 開心。但今次,有一位新朋友也來了:懼怕. 上年鼓起勇氣, 把自己過去十年和憂鬱症掙扎的經歷寫成書。今次演唱會希望把書背後的故事和感受坦白的和大家分享。 坦白和誠實, 是有risk的. 我沒有擔心音樂的準備,自己的狀態,售票的情況。經驗告訴我們,這些一切一切,冥冥之中都早有安排。 我唯一害怕的,是不知大家會怎樣接受這一份坦誠。不知得到的,會是甚麼的回應。 但我知道兩件事:承認軟弱,比假裝堅強能對人幫助。 還有,扮演一個不是自己的人,是浪費生命最直接,最愚蠢的方法。 所以六月二十日,我要在台上飾演自己。 到時見!

Living now, being here…

Tonight after a long busy day at work I was a little short on energy and patience, and gave Taylor a hard time for not cleaning up after herself. After lecturing her I sent her to take a shower while I finish cleaning up in the living room. As I…
