We attended “Celebrate Family” last Saturday, June 27, 2009-from 8AM to 5 PM at Greenhills Christian Fellowship, Emerald St., Ortigas Center. The seminar fee is P100.00-but the quantity and quality of the teaching, free food and activities is worth 5X to 10X more than that.
I would like to thank GCF for their generosity and hospitality for accepting visitors amongst theior midst and treating us like close friends there. In fact in the morning -we were met and talked with by an elderly gentleman. Later we found out that he is the dean of messiah’s College, Ortigas-and one of the founding board members of GCF-even when Pastor Young was its pioneering pastor for the 1st 15 years of its life. Now it is Dr Luis Pantoja Jr-who already looked the senior minster of the church that is still steering this 3000 (?) members church.
The morning was started by a inspiring worship and praise singing by the GCF band-and it was so wonderful-I felt that I don’t need to attend worship service the next day. In fact I fell in love with their interpretation of “Evermore” by Geron Davis. The plenary speakers was well done by Guillermo couples. The video of the paralyzed son and his running father made me wept. The concept of ‘together’ was brought home by it.
In the afternoon-there were 11 break out seminars-which my wife and I chose to do seperately -so we can cover more bases. I choose “Understanding Sex” and came home with 3 very good illustration on proper perspective on sex. I already shared it with my son and daughter. Then next I went to “Internet: Friend or Foe” . The speaker has his own website at: http://pinoyyouth.or Check it out regarding web addiction.
Finally was the dedication service and mini-rafflwe for those who participate. All in all-it was a good day not wasted!
