Transform World Korea Oct 17

  • In Korea about 80 leaders have gathered to discuss what God is doing in numerous locales where God’s people are having an impact in significant ways in the cities. Accounts have come to us from Pohang City, South Korea; Uganda; Indonesia; Brazil; India; Columbia; and Houston, Texas (on Katrina efforts still ongoing- Houston absorbed 200,000 people as refugees) among others.

It has been an interesting conference as pastors and others (including Chrsitian politicians) try to equip their church members with a sense of vocation about where God has them serving in the world. The questions here involve how can we incarnate the gospel in such a way that its message is proclaimed and incarnated so people and even structures can be impacted and transformed.

     

    • The movement is young and learning as people in faith step out to try to engage and have an impact. There is much prayer that comes with this (more than with most efforts I see), an effort to work towards unity and bringing people together in a cause centered on representing Jesus and the kingdom in the midst of the world. Where great growth is taking place in the two-thirds world, this kind of comprehensive sense of mission is not only theorized about but is being put into practice. This includes how to work in religiously diverse environments (For example, Indonesia is the largest Islamic country in the world). There is much to learn form what is going on here. So I have had a wonderful time listening to what God is doing and learning from others while here. I will try to give more reports and even more details in the days ahead.
    • We are meeting in Paju City, South Korea on a place called Prayer Mountain, which is set up to allow people to come and pray for themselves and the world. It is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It is one of many set up in the country for this purpose.
