Random Things

The more we care about something or someone, the harder it seems to let go of their betrayal. We hurt more when they do or say something careless in their moment of weaknesses. It helps if the relationship continues and then heals. In some cases, people cut ties, and all we are left with are the sense of bewilderment and lost.

I knew relationships were not easy. I knew that I would part with most of my friends. But there were some that I thought would last for a long time. There were some friends who I thought would be my friends forever. But somewhere down the road, something went wrong, and no matter what I tried, I could not see or think about them without feeling hurt.

My church is moving this Sunday to a new location. We used to rent from another church under the same denomination and had a very good relationship with them. But over the years, that other church was losing members and changing pastors. And now they want us to pay for their pastor's salary as well. I can't see how that will happen. All our congregation are not rich. Most work two jobs. We have 80 people giving offering, and it amounts to the same amount the other church's offering with only 40 people. Every week, they will pester our pastor for multiple reasons just before the service begins. Every week, they morally bully our deacons. Our moving out is a good thing for the congregation.

It is sad to see how supposedly Christians behave.

Guides to Virtual Choir

Dalam rangka pandemi ini, paduan suara tidak dapat berlatih bersama, apalagi melayani bersama. Karena itu, maka mulailah inisiatif untuk mengadakan paduan suara online, untuk pelayanan.  Agar hasilnya bisa optimal, anggota paduan suara perlu mengingat, bahwa mereka bernyanyi bukan sebagai solois, tapi sebagai bagian dari paduan suara yang besar. Jadi meskipun saat rekaman, kadang merasa kurang sempurna, selama anggota paduan suara memberikan yang terbaik (bukan asal-asalan yah), saya percaya Tuhan memberkati pelayanan kita semua. Nah, tentu saja ada beberapa tips yang bisa kita ikuti, supaya hasil rekaman bisa bagus dan maksimal. Contohnya: rekaman memakai tripod dalam ruangan yang pencahayaan cukup dan tidak membelakangi matahari/sumber cahaya adalah beberapa cara yang bisa kita pakai untuk menaikkan kualitas video kita. Berikut ini adalah guidelines / tips untuk merekam video untuk paduan suara online, yang aku buat untuk PS Agape. Semoga bisa membantu. Note: Panduan ini

Meiji Black Chocolate Puzzle

I recently bought a Meiji Black Chocolate Puzzle, thinking it would be fun to play with kids, especially while waiting for our food in the restaurant. I mean, this is better than screen time, right? Little did I know.. this puzzle is actually the harder version of the milk chocolate puzzle (which I didn't know exist). Now, THAT puzzle has lots of solutions and would be fun for kids. But this one? THIS puzzle has ONE solution (according to the YouTube video I watched, anyway). After several hours of frustrating "why is this not working" moments, I caved in and watched the YouTube solution. For my own reference (and sanity), here's the solution. For the next time I need to clean the puzzle up quickly. Hope this helps whoever is currently stuck and ready to give up...
