I am Shiao Chong, currently Editor in Chief of The Banner, official magazine of the Christian Reformed Church. Previously, I was the Christian Reformed Campus Minister serving at York University in Toronto, Canada and Director of a student club at York U called LOGOS Christian Community. Ordained as a Commissioned Pastor in the Christian Reformed Church (CRC), and a member of Fellowship CRC in Etobicoke. I am married to Martha, and a father of three daughters.
What is 3D-Christianity? I believe that most of Christianity has reduced a wholistic, full-orbed, three-dimensional spirituality into a one-dimensional or two-dimensional caricature. Hence, I am trying to recapture that wholistic gospel, so to speak, to rediscover Christianity’s three-dimensional reality. Trying, of course, being the operative word here. For more on my thoughts on a 3D-Christianity, read the posts under the 3D-Christianity category. You can start with this sermon on the Total (3-D) Gospel.
I find nourishment in the Neo-Calvinist Reformed Christianity stream in my explorations at rediscovering this 3D-Christianity. I think deeply about diversity issues from inter-cultural issues to gender issues to disability issues within the church and Christianity. My interest in disability issues was sparked when my youngest daughter was born with Down Syndrome. Having worked in campus ministry, I, of course, also engaged topics that university students engage in, e.g. creation/evolution, faith/learning, finding one’s mission/calling, discovering one’s identity, relationships/sex, environmentalism, postmodernism, etc.
You will find here articles I have written, sermons I have preached, and new musings or thoughts I have explored. I hope you browse around, read the posts, and leave comments. Hope you enjoy reading the posts and finding them edifying.
