Looking Out the Window: Meet Zeke Lam

Zeke Lam talks about his new book, SUBMISSION, and Submission Ministries. His ministry has led him all over the world.
Welcome Zeke. First, tell us About Submissioin Ministries.
This ministry exists simply to spread the love of Jesus Christ to the world. Our first book, titled SUBMISSION, released in mid November. As a “new” organization it is our goal to partner with other Christian ministries worldwide and allow the Holy Spirit to use us in whatever fashion will bring Him the most glory.
Thanks for introducing us to your ministry. Tell us a little about yourself.
I am 27 years old and have been married to my beautiful wife, Kathleen, for 6 years. We have three children (4, 2, and 2 months) that we love very much. I have been a minister since the age of 18 as a youth minister and evangelist. In addition to this, I operate a small business which constructs ornamental concrete such as flower pots, bird baths, etc. My family and I are passionate to see Christ glorified through our lives,…

Looking in the Window: Christmas Love

Luke 2: 11-12, “Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. You will find a baby wrapped in cloths lying in a manger.”


God sent Jesus to save sinners, because he loves us. Jesus suffered and died to conquer death for us, because he loves us. In Matthew the Pharisees asked Jesus, “…which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” He told them “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it. Love your neighbor as yourself.” (Matthew 22: 36 – 39).
Christmas brings messages of giving, of our Savior, and of God’s love. There are so many different kinds of love. We love our friends, our fellowman, those in need, our spouses, and our children. God tells us to love our enemies. Where does it come from? How can we be sure it won’t run out? If we don’t have it, how can we get it?
I once heard a scientist had proven that chemicals in the brain prod…

Looking Out the Window: Welcome Author E. A. West Blogging about Christmas and Autism. Read about Key to Charlotte, Her New Book

In her wonderful blog about Christmas and Autistics author E.A. West reminds us to keep the focus of Christmas where it belongs:  On Christ  
The holiday season can be stressful for anyone. Visiting family and friends, decorating the house, attending holiday parties, and shopping for the perfect gifts can wear anyone out. Now, take all of that holiday busyness and add in the extra challenges caused by autism. In that situation, holiday stress takes on a whole new meaning.
Autistics are known for struggling with social situations. A typical, uneventful day at school or work is enough to completely exhaust someone on the autism spectrum. A regularly occurring event, such as a weekly church service, can be completely overwhelming at times. I showed a brief glimpse into this in The Key to Charlotte. Although that situation was completely fictional, the emotions and thoughts shown are very real.
With all of this in mind, imagine being an autistic suddenly thrust into the midst of the hig…
