Advent Word 2017, Day 4 ‘simplify’

#AdventWord #simplify

‘SIMPLIFY: travel lightly. Cast off the things and thoughts which are dark and heavy. Put on the “armor of light.” Clean out the closets of your mind and of your house. SIMPLIFY and share the best of your mortal life.’

Visit to the Taiwan Episcopal Church 台灣聖公會 of Bishop John A. Pinckney from Taiwan’s companion diocese, the Episcopal Diocese of Upper S. Carolina (EDUSC), October 1965.

St. James’ Episcopal Church, Taichung 台灣聖公會聖雅各堂 at that time met in this rented building. Later, in 1968, a plot of land was acquired, and in 1971, a donation of US$ 30,000 from Christ Church, Greenville, EDUSC, and an equal amount raised from St. James’ Church members provided the funds needed to build a new church, consecrated in April 1971. Now it is a bustling, busy and beautiful place of worship and outreach, under the leadership of Rev. Lily Chang, rector. Thanks be to God!
