Week 3: Down the Easter Road

Jagged Pieces

Broken, like glass that’s fallen, that's what I am, 
into pieces, a thousand fragments, broken by 
every shattered dream and every time I fail, 
every word of anger, each time hate prevails. 
And though glass can cut like nails 

still You pick up these jagged pieces 
though they wound You with pain and pride. 
You soothe them beneath Your fingers 
and comfort this broken child. 

Turning, I keep on trying to run away 
like these pieces, these pieces blown by the winds of shame 
every time I hear that who I am is wrong, 
Every time I feel that I may not belong, 
still You call me with Your song 

and You gather these scattered pieces, 
ever seeking the ones that hide. 
You bring them back together, 
remaking this broken child. 

Too often I’ve run away, and too often I’ve hid my face; 
too seldom, I’ve sought your boundless embrace. 

So I’ll offer these broken pieces 
each day I’ll bring them where You reside 
and rest there, safe in Your presence 
forever, Your broken child. 
Your broken, beloved child.

Just a little more love and coffee will make the world a better place

Just a little more love
Just a little more peace
Is all it takes
To live the dream
To walk hand in hand
We've got to understand
And one day soon
We'll live in harmony!

Thanks gelopots for the song!

Join Hangad's Journey towards Easter with DOWN THE EASTER ROAD: an Online Lenten Prayer Series

While we often eagerly anticipate the joy and celebration of Christmas, we seldom appreciate the significance of Lent, Holy Week, and Easter. Yet Easter is the Christian occasion of greatest importance—even more so than Christmas. After all, everyone is born—but only Christ was reborn! What would be the significance of Christ's birth, if there had not been a Resurrection? What would be the meaning of Christmas, if Jesus did not go on to suffer, die, and rise again? 

This Lenten season, we in Hangad invite you to join us in our preparations for Holy Week and Easter, with Down the Easter Road: an Online Lenten Prayer Series with Hangad. 

Down the Easter Road is a four-part online prayer guide comprising readings, reflections, and songs. A new chapter in the recollection will be uploaded each Sunday from March 15 to April 6. Simply set aside 20 minutes each week to visit the site and go through the different materials there, and you’ll discover a deepened Lenten season. 

And on April 25, we will culminate Down the Easter Road with an Easter concert which we will also place online. 

Click HERE today to start your journey with us Down the Easter Road.

Brand Camp:Zero Degree Feedback

It's sad how sometimes, in the corporate world, who we were in the past, who we are now and what we will be in the future is is defined by a number.

Beach drink in the city

One way to beat the almost 40 deg summer heat is to cool down with a refreshing smoothie. Since Jonas(Boracay) is too far away, Stock Market's Virgin Pina Colada will have to do for now. And the only reason I compare this drink to Jonas is because its the only smoothie I've tasted so far that literally lets your mind wander to the beach after the first sip. I'm not kidding! It's really that refreshing!!! (insert sound of mouth watering...). 

Stock Market is in Q3 of Bonifacio High Street, Fort Global City.

Friday mix: Come Fly Away

If you can get over the Flight-of-the-Bumblebee-ish tune after the opening vocals of this track then Benny Benassi has completely captured your attention. Just don't hallucinate too much now and be carried away by its video game-ish trance melody haha Happy weekend everyone! Party safe! =D

Brand Camp:Idea Camouflage

Great ideas don't need to be hidden behind 100 slides of text. Maybe all it takes is passion (plus confidence)
