Wilson is the youth leader at International Punjabi Masihi Church in Vancouver, Canada. Everyone loves this radical preacher's passion for Christ and His Church. Wilson helped organize the South Asian Global Convention (SAGC 2004) under the leadership of Pastor Pritam Singh. He is as "hairy-as-a-yak," "spits-like-a-camel," and is a F.A.T. (Faithful, Available, and Teachable) Christian. Wilson, a Malayalee Christian holds a BA in Biblical Studies from Trinity Western University and his mission is to make Scripture relevant to today's generation. Famous quote: "Knock it off!"
1 How good and pleasant it is when brothers live together in unity!
2 It is like precious oil poured on the head, running down on the beard, running down on Aaron's beard, down upon the collar of his robes.
3 It is as if the dew of Hermon were falling on Mount Zion. For there the LORD bestows his blessing, even life forevermore."
I just spent my day spending quality time with my beloved bro, A-Bomb. He's a good guy. I'm grateful to God for a great bro. We went downtown to watch one of my favorite bands, U2 in 3-D. We put on the glasses and sat back and allowed the band to entertain us. I was really impressed. They played, 'Vertigo' and 'Beautiful Day' and 'The Fly.' and other songs wrapping it up with 'Yahweh'
What I really like about this band is there heart for humanitarian causes. They like to challenge political leaders and fuel relief works and shed light on worthy movements. They make a great racket and don't seem to be locked down inside the box. They keep things lively, unpredictable, and stimulated. I like their escentric attitudes and profound statements and open minds. Way to go boys!
We wrapped the evening having a meal and talked about how people can feel so much rejection from the church. Some even get delusional and traumatized by imperfect people and petty differences and even fall away from the faith. It is sad that the church isn't perfect... But God is. It all comes down to having faith in him and nothing else and in no one else.
We also spent time walking around downtown. Buncouver has got Olympic fever. Commercialism is the new prized possession. There are new buildings, construction everywhere and my small, quaint city is growing. I hate seeing the tree's cut down and concrete slabs and glass towers taking over the views. I guess all that will change when the earth quake comes. I miss the days of being one with nature... and allergies.
Well, this has all been fun and exhilarating. I thank I'll call this one a wrap as well and spend time wondering why I feel so nauseas and exhausted... See you later!
