“On the occasion of our General Assembly and Special Offering for Theological Seminaries”

 

Today is the second Sunday of Advent. One week ago, on the first Sunday of Advent, we meditated upon Lord Jesus Christ who had come down to earth as the light of hope, and we lit the candle of hope. Today we commemorate the baby Jesus who was born for the true peace on earth, and we light the candle of peace. Even though Jesus Christ came as a baby to bring the true peace on earth more than 2,000 years ago, people all over the world are still suffering from conflicts, divisions, wars, starvation, pain and despair. We are eagerly waiting for the second coming of Jesus Christ, the king of true peace.

 

Among the United Methodist Churches in U.S., today is a special day for theological seminaries. Each church is collecting a special offering to bring up the next generation church leaders, and our church is participating in this effort by having a ‘special offering for Wesley Theological Seminary’ today. All of you are aware of the importance of bringing up good pastors for the Lord’s churches, and we hope that many of you will participate in this special offering for Korean seminary students who will serve the future Korean United Methodist Churches in U.S.

 

After the service, we will hold the year-end General Assembly for 2017. Time went fast and we are nearly at the end of this year, and every one of you has worked very hard for our church this year. With our slogan of ‘Nurturing, a fruit of holy life’ (Galatians 4:19) and 5 practical principles to observe, our church has continued to run the race in our journey of faith which began more than 45 years ago, and I am thankful for the dedicated service of every member for the church.

 

Reflecting upon this past year, we realize there have been many good things, but there also have been many things lacking or amiss. But, in our faithful point of view, we have to confess that all things have been provided by the hands of our Almighty God. After finishing up this year, I pray that you will joyfully welcome the New Year 2018 which will turn out to be as beautiful and fruitful as ever. May abundant blessings and encouragements be bestowed upon all of you!
