Episode 40 - Will 2nd/3rd Generation Pastors Stay In Canadian Asian Churches?

With many cultural and generational divides and differences in Canadian Asian communities, will younger generations decide to stay and develop predominately immigrant and mono-ethnic churches? Or will they decide to venture into new expressions of faith and models of church and Christian communities? Join us as we jump into the factors that influence these decisions and reflect on personal experiences of how this journey has looked for us. Let's do this!!!

Our special guest Cynthia Tam from Village Eulogia joins us to unpack stigmas, share personal stories, and offer an insight to a new imagination for communities. Check it out!

Episode 35 - Asian Perspectives On Mental Health (feat. Herman Chow & Estella Cheong)

How is mental health seen from an Asian lens? Are certain people groups or generations more or less open to exploring this aspect of our lives and seek out help when it is needed? What have been some of the major factors that have contributed to issues surrounding mental illness and emotional trauma? Join us in a conversation with psychotherapists Herman Chow & Estella Cheong as we tackle this subject from an Asian perspective and talk about how the church plays a role to come alongside others toward healing and restoration.
