IUSM Special Talk: Case for the Resurrection

What: Case for the Resurrection
When: Saturday, March 5, 2016, 7pm
Where: Student Community Center MPR

IUSM will explore and talk about: Did Jesus really came back to life on Easter Sunday?  What are the evidence that can give a credible argument for the resurrection of Jesus?  This is crucial in the belief of Christianity.

The night not only will be thought provoking, we will also start with a good delicious dinner, Games, & Fun!

Well we hope you can come and join us this Saturday as we talk about this topic.

IUSM Winter Welcome Night : Refresh Recap

We had a great time, and being “Refresh” for the beginning of the new quarter.  We started off with a delicious meal, Korean BBQ, and delicious salad, and home cook rice.  Then we heard from two Berkeley PhD students of their experience, and how they have a fresh outlook in life after they investigated and ponder about the meaning of life.


Of course, you know we will have some fun and games after hearing all the serious things of life.  Why are they leaning, Leaning Tower of Pisa?

Why were their eyes covered?  Are those for sword fighting?  Glad the swords are foams, and the bystanders dodge out of the way.  We even had times of playing foosball.

Recap: 2015 Thanksgiving Celebration

We started the afternoon with songs, engaging message, and special song and touching sharing from the students.  At the end, we put our tags on this display, showing how all our stories fit into God’s story.

While the turkey and food is being setup, there was a time of games while people waited.


Look at all these delicious turkeys, 28 in all.  Some group had different recipes.  I heard the deep fried turkey is the most tender.  It’s impossible to eat a portion from each turkey.  Still we all had our fill from the turkey, mashed potatoes, corn, candied yam, …  Too much good food to list.


Each group put on song and performances.  IUSM put on a performance from the movie Inside Out!  Brian sure look familiar.  Did they used his picture for Anger in the movie?  Are you sure they only had practice for one day?  There are some natural talents for these roles.

Even some dancing as part of the performance by our IUSM members.

Which 3 characters are they playing here?  Disgust, Joy, Sadness.  Can you guess which one is which?  If you are still not sure, you can ask them the next time you see them.


Recap: IUSM Special Talk – How Can I Believe in a God I Cannot See?

Our Alumni, Dr. Ng(he wants everyone to call him Kit) received his PhD from Davis Chemistry Department.  We asked him to come and talk about this topic, and he came back … home … to lend a hand.

At the beginning, while everyone is settling down.  Here we look our views of God: vending machine, good vs bad deeds, aloof, relationship?  Put a marble in the jar in front of the picture…

Dr. Ng talked about 3 different ways how we form our worldviews of daily experiences.  And how those 3 ways can help us come to form our view of God we can relate to…  There was some good discussion around the table.  Then there was the good desserts.


We ended the night with game of Blind Turkey.  One person draw one part of the turkey, and people in each team take turn until they draw the whole turkey.  We have some good artistic talents, and some turkey picture(s) looks so good and proportional…

Din HG TFN and Games and Dessert Recap

We had a great time with Studying the Bible.  After that, it’s time to try out some new events.  Eric, what should we do?  “Hmm, not sure…”

Jin, “let me tell you what we have in store for tonight!”…

What is this, ping pong? You can’t fool me, this is not the way to play ping pong. The Din style ping pong sure looks fun. Everyone enjoyed it!


Where were you?  Come join the fun!


There were more?…


That’s all the new games right?  Wait, what are those balloons for?  Trying to stump and breaking it with your foot?  Eric, watch out for your own balloon(螳螂捕蝉,黄雀在后)! Next playing marbles with spoons?  That is interesting. Even rolling quarters on the floor in a game of puck on table.  There were sure a good variety of games.


Let’s all take a break, and enjoy some of these delicious desserts for the night!


East meets West cuisine Recap

On one end of the street there was potsticker making, while on the other end is Make Your Own Pizza.  But we did more than just making our own pizza creations, we also had food for the brain and soul, and more food (desserts).  A well balanced night…

We started off with making the pizza

21736975700_c2ba24ac40_k21736978370_2e0bf5be2b_k21303943493_a1276b488e_k    21934795361_1239f70405_k21736989610_4ce38f958d_k21898904496_e135ccbf30_k21913031952_08235837d1_k21738194529_f1484e77e4_k21898891676_fffe3f4e95_k

Then we baked them, and got ready to eat.  Was it food taste testing time? Or was someone sneaking into the kitchen, and getting caught red handed?


After all the good food, we had a time to feed the soul with Bible Study.


Then we have some game time.

Even a birthday surprise… and we finished out the night with ice cream dessert.
