By Shawn Isaacs, Youth Pastor, Cincinnati Chinese Church. 作者: Shawn Isaacs, 新城教会青年部牧师 翻译: 庄文菁 “Are you prepared to be wrong even when you’re right?” said the wise, seasoned Pastor. “即使你是对的,但仍被认为是错的,为此你准备好了吗? ” 明智且经验丰富的牧师问我。 I was. And I wasn’t. 我准备好了,但也没准备好。 “You’ll never truly belong here,” he added, himself a white American Pastor. I listened, but disagreed. If the Gospel is true, wouldn’t…

Uncle Reggie Story: Gentle Words

URS 柔和的话语 (Dixia翻译) There is a very famous Proverb (26:4), “a soft answer turns away wrath,” applicable to many communication situations. Surprisingly, many leaders do not learn this lesson early enough in their leadership careers. When they give quick sharp answers to others, they instantly run into problems they have thoughtlessly created for themselves. By nature, my instinctive responses in…

URS missions (2): mobilization of church support for missionaries 宣道事工(第二部):推动教会对宣道士的支持(Edison 翻译)

URS “You’re so naughty, one day you will be a minister”  Uncle Reggie 的故事:“你这么调皮,你有一天会成为传道人”(Edison 翻译)           

Often I crack a joke to church kids when they are naughty; “You’re so naughty, one day you might become a minister!” God uses all kinds of people, and sometimes it does seem like He takes the naughtiest kids, and makes them into ministers or missionaries. 我经常开玩笑的对教会里顽皮的孩子们说“你很顽皮,你有一天可能会成为传道人!” 神使用各样的人,有时候祂好像真的是拣选最调皮的孩子们,使他们成为传道人或传教士。   There is a vivid historical story of Saul, who became Paul,…

 URS: Evangelism as mission: the CCC story

 URS: Evangelism as mission: the CCC story 曾叔叔说故事:以传福音为使命:辛城教会的故事 Our church (Cincinnati Chinese) began from a bible study fellowship, active in outreach and evangelism on the college campus. This was likely similar to stories of a number of Chinese churches, especially in Midwest smaller cities, during the 1960s and 1970s. There were few established Chinese churches in the Midwest, but Chinese…
