Martin Luther nailing his 95 theses (objections to the Catholic practice on selling indulgences) to a Wittemberg church door on Oct 31, 1617. Considered the start of the Reformation.
Nice review. Inspires me to see this all the more. Critics observed this movie is not so much about crazy rich Singaporeans as it is about an Asian American woman appreciating who she really is and what she and her mother accomplished in imigrating to America.
Thank you for welcoming Shigeko-san and me today.

Hey Sei Ko Kai Members,

I hope that you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I am currently a declared Molecular and Cell Biology major with an emphasis in Medical Cell and Developmental Biology at the University of California Berkeley. As part of my career aspirations, I have had an internship at a Cancer Research Lab at UCSF. Here’s the link to our website if you would like to look into what we are doing (http://labmed.ucsf.edu/wiita/index.html).

Last year, I got involved with Camp Kesem, a nationwide community that supports children through and beyond their parent's cancer by providing a week-long summer camp. Led by passionate, trained student leaders just like me from over 100 colleges nationwide, Camp Kesem provides free summer camping experiences and year-round support to over 7,200 children affected by a parent’s cancer. Camp Kesem is the largest nonprofit organization dedicated to this often-overlooked population of children.They are able to go at no cost to them or their families because of the fundraising the camp counselors do.

Last year I went to camp as a Unit Leader for the green unit which is kids age 7. My camp name is "Uncle Samurai". This experience showed me just how strong and amazing these kids are!

That is where you come in! My personal goal this year is $3000 dollars. With that amount of money, I will be able to provide the magic of camp to six youth campers. Today is Giving Tuesday, which means that 100% of your donations made in the next 24 hours will go to the kids with zero processing fees (i.e. all the money goes to the kids!).

If you are unable to provide financially at the current time I would really appreciate if you could pass this message along to your friends and help me reach my donation goal! Thank you so much for always supporting me and my efforts and I look forward to hearing from you soon!

[05/27/21]   Praying for those who lost their lives and those wounded, also their families and loved ones affected by the shootings this morning at the Valley Transportation Authority maintenance yard near downtown San Jose. Also praying for the law enforcement personnel from many local and Federal agencies and their canine bomb-sniffers, who are still investigating this crime in multiple locations, now 13 hours later. God watch over them and keep all safe. Let no more lives be lost this night.

[05/26/21]   From our Bishop Marc Andrus:

Today, we pray for all those affected by the latest heartbreaking mass shooting, this time at a public transit facility in San Jose. For all who have died, may they be received into God’s compassionate embrace. For those who have been injured, may they be restored to health. For those who mourn, may they may be comforted. We pray also for the many first responders, hospital workers, volunteers, and others working to assist in this time of tragedy. Let us collectively strengthen our resolve to pursue peace in our communities and to respect the dignity of all. Amen
**
Hoy, oramos por todos los afectados por el último tiroteo masivo desgarrador, esta vez en una instalación de transporte público en San José. Que todos los que han mu**to sean recibidos en el abrazo compasivo de Dios. Para aquellos que han sido heridos, que recuperen la salud. Para los que lloran, que sean consolados. Oramos también por los muchos socorristas, trabajadores del hospital, voluntarios y otras personas que trabajan para ayudar en este momento de tragedia. Fortalezcamos colectivamente nuestra determinación de buscar la paz en nuestras comunidades y respetar la dignidad de todos. amén"

Biography: Mabel Ping-Hua Lee

Mabel Lee was a missionary kid from Guangdong and moved to NY City in 1912. She started as a woman's suffragist activist when she was 16 and (because of the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882) couldn't legally vote until 1946. She earned a PhD in Economics at Columbia University.

"After her father’s death, Lee took over his role as director of the First Chinese Baptist Church of New York City. She also opened a community center called the Chinese Christian Center. This center was designed to empower the Chinese community by offering a health clinic, a kindergarten, vocational training, and English classes. Mabel Ping-Hua Lee died in 1966 at the age of 70."

Biography: Mabel Ping-Hua Lee In a 1912 New York Times article, Mabel Ping-Hua Lee was regarded as “the symbol of the new era, when all women will be free and unhampered.” Learn more at womenshistory.org.

Augustine came to Kent in 597. He converted King Ethelbert to Christianity; Queen Bertha was already a Christian. Augustine's first worship space was St. Martin's Chapel in Canterbury. Eventually Canterbury Cathedral would become the see of the Archbishop of Canterbury, who is the head of the Church of England and symbolic head of the Anglican Communion.

Today we give thanks for the life and obedience of St Augustine, the first Archbishop of Canterbury, who preached the Gospel and built up the English Church. May his witness inspire us to answer God’s call to tell the world of God’s love for all His children.

Remembering HELENA OF CONSTANTINOPLE
PROTECTOR OF THE HOLY PLACES, 330, May 22, from the #Episcopal calendar, commentary from Satucket. com:
"Helena, or Saint Helena (Greek: 'Aγία 'Eλένη, Hagía Helénē, Latin: Flavia Iulia Helena Augusta; c.246/248 – c. 330), was an Empress of the Roman Empire, and mother of Emperor Constantine the Great. Born the lowest of commoners, possibly in Drepana, Bithynia in Asia Minor, she became the consort of the future Roman Emperor Constantius Chlorus (reigned 293–306) and the mother of the future Emperor Constantine the Great (reigned 306–337).

Helena ranks as an important figure in the history of Christianity and of the world due to her influence on her son. In her final years, she made a religious tour of Syria Palaestina and Jerusalem, during which she allegedly discovered the True Cross.

Helena gave birth to the future emperor Constantine I on 27 February, probably around 272. In order to obtain a wife more consonant with his rising status, Constantius divorced Helena some time before 289. Helena and her son were dispatched to the court of Diocletian at Nicomedia, where Constantine grew to be a member of the inner circle. Helena never remarried and lived for a time in obscurity, though close to her only son, who had a deep regard and affection for her.

Constantine was proclaimed Augustus of the Roman Empire in 306 by Constantius' troops after the latter had died, and following his elevation his mother was brought back to the public life in 312, returning to the imperial court. She received the title of Augusta in 325. According to Eusebius, her conversion to Christianity followed her son becoming emperor.

In 326-28 Helena undertook a trip to the Holy Places in Palestine. According to Eusebius of Caesarea, who records the details of her pilgrimage to Palestine and other eastern provinces, she was responsible for the construction or beautification of two churches, the Church of the Nativity, Bethlehem, and the Church of Eleona on the Mount of Olives, sites of Christ's birth and ascension, respectively.

At the time of Helena's pilgrimage, Jerusalem was still being rebuilt following the destruction caused by Titus in AD 70. Emperor Hadrian had built during the 130s a temple over the site of Jesus's tomb near Calvary, and renamed the city Aelia Capitolina. According to Eusebius, "[t]here was a temple of Venus on the spot. This the queen (Helena) had destroyed." According to tradition, Helena ordered the temple torn down and, according to the legend that arose at the end of the 4th century, chose a site to begin excavating, which led to the recovery of three different crosses. Helena had a woman who was near death brought from the city. When the woman touched the first and second crosses, her condition did not change, but when she touched the third and final cross she suddenly recovered, and Helena declared the cross with which the woman had been touched to be the True Cross. On the site of discovery, Constantine ordered the building of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.

Helena died around 330, with her son at her side. She was buried in the Mausoleum of Helena, outside Rome on the Via Labicana." http://satucket.com/lectionary/Helena.html

PRAYER
Most Merciful God, who blessed your servant Helena with such grace and devotion to you that she venerated the very footsteps of our Savior; may we too, assisted by her prayers and example, be given the same grace to always see your glory in the cross of your Son. Through the same Jesus Christ our Lord; who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Living in Two Cultures | American Experience | PBS

This first generation Vietnamese American and journalist describes what it is like to be both/and with two different cultures. Chinese, Japanese, and other immigrant children over the past 100 years have dealt with the same issues:

"Besides, the pressure to assimilate is no longer as heavy as before. If anything, all Americans are learning to assimilate to new cultures that keep showing up at the American shores. In San Francisco, blacks, hispanics, whites, all know how to use chopsticks. Go to Bolsa in Orange County and see non Vietnamese eating pho and buying Vietnamese groceries.

"My mother complains that I speak too much English in the house, but as the most conservative member of our family she, too, has changed. She goes to the gym, does aerobics. She prays to Buddha, but bets on football. I don't watch football, but she's fanatic. So who's more American than whom?"

Explaining HIPAA: No, it doesn’t ban questions about your vaccination status 05/22/2021

Explaining HIPAA: No, it doesn’t ban questions about your vaccination status

HIPAA privacy protection doesn't mean businesses can't ask if you have been vaxx'd. It means certain entities can't share your medical info with just anybody.

"If you’re being asked and you feel uncomfortable, Cohen said, don’t hesitate to bring up your own questions, such as, “Why are you asking this?” and “How will my answer affect me?” In situations where it’s a business or restaurant asking, he added, remember that you can always go somewhere else.

"Gatter urged people reluctant to share their vaccination status to consider the safety of others. “When someone’s asking your vaccination status where the vaccine is about a novel virus that has caused a pandemic, and you work at a nursing home or you’re a student at a residential university,” he said, “I think you should be able to understand that, ‘That’s a worthwhile invasion of my privacy.’”

Explaining HIPAA: No, it doesn’t ban questions about your vaccination status HIPAA, which deals with health privacy, is one of the “most misunderstood statutes in existence,” one expert said.

The Giants-Dodgers rivalry is back and the stakes are finally high again 05/22/2021

The Giants-Dodgers rivalry is back and the stakes are finally high again

The Giants/Dodgers rivalry goes back some six decades. This year, this weekend, it continues.

"It’s only May, but it’s been five years since the Giants and Dodgers met this late in the season with both clubs at least five games above .500. The rivalry doesn’t disappear when one team is bad and the other is good, but it sure becomes more intriguing when both franchises are among the best in baseball.

"And so far this season, the Giants and Dodgers have ranked among the game’s elite. So while the Dodgers remain the heavy favorites to win the division, the Giants have already embraced their underdog label and are eager to prove they can hold their own against the best measuring stick in baseball."

The Giants-Dodgers rivalry is back and the stakes are finally high again The Dodgers are the reigning World Series champions and the Padres made all of the splashy offseason moves, but it’s the Giants who remain in first place in the National League West.
