Chinese Christians do celebrate Mid-Autumn Festival. As a Chinese Christian, and being a Christian does not mean that one is no longer a Chinese. Chinese Christians can embrace their own culture so long as it does not contradict with the Word of God. "'Everything is permissible' - but not everything is beneficial. 'Everything is permissible' - but everything is constructive. Nobody should seeks his own good, but the good of others...So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God." (I Cor. 10:23,24,31)
The spot light of 2016 Mid-Autumn Festival Celebration was the ministering of God's Word and singing by Pastor Edward Chiu.
There were two presentations for this year.
The English Conversational Class presented a song titled "The Cross Representing God's Heart".
Brother Thomas Tan, the ironman was back in action post his cataract surgery. He presented a song in harmonica titled "Ping Ann Keat".
The height of the JBBC Mid-Autumn Festival was the "Lantern Riddle". Gifts were given to the winners.
We would like to give thanks to God for using sister Nelly and sister Fern as a team to lead a friend of sister Nelly to the Lord during this event. Heaven rejoices over the conversion of one sinner. Glory to God.
