Bill Belew has raised 2 bi-cultural kids, now 34 and 30. And he and his wife are now parenting a 3rd, Mia, who is 8.
A friend invited me to attend a lecture tonight at Stanford. I wasn’t quite sure what I was getting into but looked forward to the time with my friend.
As it turns out it was a lecture by a professional debater who was also a theist. His topic was five argument for why there is a God and three reasons on why it matters.
The topic was interesting and I must admit that I one point I wanted to hold up a sign with the word “Huh!?” on it.
The question was in regard to quantum physics and how a theist might reconcile the differences of opinion.
But all that is not relevant to this blog. The point I want to make is that the audience was predominantly Asian! …Chinese and Indian mostly. I can usually but NOT always tell Chinese from Japanese from Korean.
What I realized is that the Chinese are learning more than Business, Chemistry, Physics, Medicine and such from Stanford.
There are people here trying to impact them philosophically and spiritually as well. And what they learn about those topics, God, faith and such, they will take back to China as well.
What do you think about that?
Talk to Bill and others about their experiences raising bi-cultural Japanese-American kids.
