A word from Pastor Kai
I Graduated with a MDiv (master of divinity) from School of Theology, Boston University, I was appointed to Wellfleet UMC three years ago. My wife and I are elders in the New England Conference of UMC. My family lives in Eastham. Our 11 years old daughter goes to the Nauset Middle School and our son is in Eastham Elementary.
I was born in China in the mid 1970s, one year before the end of the Cultural Revolution. Back in those days students were supposed to understand the world as atheists. I never heard anything of Christianity until 1990. In 1990, my parents and I survived a fire accident in the home, which resulted in 75% severe burns of my body. After one week of struggling with the threat of death, I woke from a deep coma. It was an unforgettable life experience. That was when I first encountered God by feeling God’s healing grace and mercy in a mysterious way. Years later, when I read about Methodist theology as a seminarian, I believe that it was God’s prevenient grace leading me, guiding me, strengthening and calling me through. The very grace and mercy has been with me from the beginning and called me into a new chapter of my life, seeking the very Light and the loving Voice, coming to know God, growing in faith, serving the church as well as people in need through ministry. Since then, I have been serving churches for almost 20 years.
I am a runner. On October 13th, 2012, I went to Hartford and finished my first Marathon.
Running is my meditation. The Bible says: since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight and the sin that clings so closely, and let us run with perseverance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus the pioneer and perfecter of our faith….(Hebrews 12:1-2a)
Join me for a good run of our Christian Faith.
