Warren Lee shared a real eye opener today and says Artificial intelligence (AI) is taking over the way we live. It has proven to be remarkably helpful in so many ways, but are humans able to survive with AI exclusively? 


Artificial Intelligence (AI) is intelligence demonstrated by machines, as opposed to natural intelligence that humans possess, such as voice/face recognition, comprehending chess (better than humans), play simulated war strategies, and driving automobiles.
AI has become a threat to human society. What have we become? What will we be? Robots?  
We hope not!
Warren believes AI should help support humansnot replace them. Computers cannot duplicate the qualities of love, faith and hope.
John 13:34-35 talks about love. Warren shared a story about the time he graduated from college and was theoretically prepared to do the job but really had know idea how to do it! A person there became a mentor to him and guided him during this time of uncertainty. Can AI do this?

Tommy Lim opens our discussion from Romans 15:5-6
"Unity and Praise"
May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you a spirit of unity among yourselves as 
you follow Christ Jesus, so that with one heart and mouth you may glorify the God and Father of our

Tommy shared a sample of his Christian journey and talked about some of the ways he worships God at FCBC. He expressed his gratitude amongst his choir peers such as Wendy Quan and Victor Low.

He tells us another story about another member of the choir, Bill Chinn and how he was able to show his love and dedication to help Tommy in a sticky situation. Tommy has been serving on the Illinois Alumni choir for the past 5 years. Every year they are asked to …

Today we heard from our very own Victor Low. If we only had more time! Vic had so much to share

about his Christian journey. It began long ago as a kid growing up in Chinatown. He spent endless

hours at the YMCA playing with friends and hanging out. It felt like an extension of his home.

Discouragement came when he was a young man and was given the responsibility of counseling very

young children at an overnight camp. He reminisced on how that one night felt like a lifetime. Hide

and go seek can only be played so much...and he was worn out! With no training or experience he felt

inadequate and believed he had failed.  At the time he felt frustrated but later realized his faith in God

would strengthen him and that God would be beside him no matter what circumstances confronted

him.

What moment did you have that helped you find comfort once you surrounded yourself in prayer?

When did you feel helpless and frustrated? How did God help you?
