Advent Word 2017, Day 21 ‘child’

#AdventWord #child

‘The stable lamp is glowing, and the CHILD is sleeping on Mary’s lap. This is the scene in many a creche in every corner of Christendom. Drawing near to Christmas Day is a bittersweet moment. Before we know it, this chosen CHILD of the bright stars will ride in triumph through the streets of Jerusalem to his cruel death.’

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. Paul’s Church, Kaohsiung 台灣聖公會高雄聖保羅堂 ran several clinics in rented buildings in the Kaohsiung and Pingtung areas, this was one. They also had mobile clinics. One of the EDUSC projects was to raise money to buy land to build a permanent clinic.
