  • Can Singaporeans Truly Live 'Regardless Of Race'?

    Can Singaporeans Truly Live ‘Regardless Of Race’?

    I missed the Channel NewsAsia documentary ‘Regardless Of Race’ when it aired on TV, so I watched it on Toggle.sg instead. Hosted by Janil Puthucheary, Chairperson of Onepeople.sg, the film sought to tease out Singaporeans’ thoughts on our race relations. But I guess a TV programme wil...

    There are times when I feel like I want to pour my hearts out into words, but I can hardly do so. Sometimes, thoughts go by so fast, I didn’t have enough time to translate them into words. I can’t quite find the right words. I keep it all in my head. The writer’s block is so real, and...

    With a book to finish and a six-month-old to entertain, I’m keeping my fall schedule pretty light this year. The nice thing about being selective, though, is I get to participate in some pretty cool events—including the second annual Why Christian? conference I’m hosting with my frien...

    I really liked using Snapchat as a visual diary during our Tokyo, Japan trip in the June holidays so did the same thing when we went to Legoland Malaysia Resort earlier this week (*^▽^*) It's so easy to snap, update our family & friends on-the-go and come back to string it all togethe...

    It’s a work trip as we’re meeting our Japanese investors (news reports here and here in case you didn’t know about the Series B funding news) and having a tour of their operations. I’m sooooo excited because their warehouse is acres-wide and they have conveyor belts and all…. I might ...

    On sinning no more…

    rachelheldevans.com 30 Aug '16, 12pm

    How’s that working out for you? The "go and sin no more" thing? Because it’s not going so well for me. I’ve known Jesus for as long as I’ve known my name, and still I use other people like capital to advance my own interest, still I gossip to make myself feel important, still I curse ...

    Rezeki just comes unexpectedly most of time, when you least expect it to. When Dean and I work, we really really don’t look for any recognition or to win awards or anything like that. It’s truly what we love doing, building a business together, and what’s best is that we get to help t...

  • For the sake of the gospel, drop the persecution complex

    rachelheldevans.com 23 Aug '16, 10pm

    Reality Check #3: Facing disagreement is not the same as facing persecution. Conservative Christians are right about one thing: public opinion has shifted on same-sex marriage (particularly within the Church), and this means they are more likely to encounter pushback when they insist ...
