飛揚小組 is one of the 5 small cell-groups at St. James’ Church, Taichung ~ and all 5 have delightful names. Just think, this group could well be called the Wednesday Evening Cell group, after all that’s when they usually meet ~ but that would be so boring and unimaginative. Instead it is called 飛揚 Fei-Yang, which in a Christian context is often used to mean something like ‘Flying everywhere to share the Gospel’….
Cell groups have gone from strength to strength at St. James, a wonderful way of growing the church, and sharing and deepening faith. In this group are several who have been baptized very recently and are now preparing for confirmation. Occasionally they gather at the home of one of their members for tea and sharing and dinner. Last Saturday was one of those fun days ~ and somehow I found myself there too….
With all this eating, some suggest the group could be renamed 肥羊 rather than 飛揚 – both are pronounced Fei-Yang (only a tone apart); perhaps appropriately 肥羊 means ‘Fat Sheep’ ha ha ha!
Such a fun time had by all!
