Cooking lesson 2014/6/7

Feijoada, a Mozambique relish, cooked by Fred at church bazaar this year was very popular.
On Saturday 7 June, some of PF members learned how to cook Feijoada from Fred. It was very tasty and delicious.

At our church, each group prepare lunch in turns every Sunday. So we also would like to join this activity as Praise fellowship. We are supposed to serve lunch after second service. If we cut some ingredient beforehand on Saturday, we'll have enough time to cook. We'll discuss about the date after English Sunday service this month.

Let's join this activity and receive the grace of God!

English Sunday service 2014/5/11


Today's Bible: Revolution 2:10
Highlight: Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life.
In today’s verse, we were able to think about the nature of Faithfulness. In the modern society, the word faithfulness seems to be lightened compared from the past. But as Christians, we must not forget about real meaning of keeping our faithfulness to God.
There are 2 things that we should keep in mind about faithfulness
.
1. We Christians should be faithful until death.
Many things change so easily and are forgotten. But we need to keep our loyalty until the day we go to heaven. Being a Christian is a lifelong experience, so be faithful all the time!

2. We should never minimize the meaning of Faithfulness.
Until how much can we be faithful to God? Are we really facing God and keeping our faithfulness all the time? Even though life has changed a lot, the way that we keep faith to God should have the whole meaning of the word faithfulness.

English Sunday service 2014/4/6


Today's Bible: Romans 5:3-5
Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God's love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.

This is the beginning of spring. In this year we will experience both good things and hardships.
Even in tribulations, we will have hope and faith. We can glory in trying times because suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame.

We want to constantly have peace in our life but that is usually wishful thinking. Most people do not want to do a lot of things because that offers peace. Most Japanese pastors are that way. They do not have tight schedules because that gives them a lot of peace.

But we should not be timid, shying away from doing great things because we do not want trouble or tribulations. We should go out and work hard because we will then experience the hope from God. This hope is based on the love of God. We can rest assured that we will not be disappointed. We believe in God who is spirit, we cant see or touch Him, but He is always present.

An old man was lying helpless right on rail tracks at a railroad crossing. A young lady whose car had stopped right in front of the crossing jumped out of her car to rescue the troubled senior even though the train was just about to run him over. Well, she managed to get the old man out of harm's way but she herself did not. She was young, single, with the whole unwritten future ahead of her. She sacrificed all that for the old man she never knew.

The media was abuzz with her story, and the old man himself did not attract much media attention. People loved her. She touched so many by what she did. She was selfless. That is the God kind of Love.

The word LOVE has been used and abused by many people. We have all kinds of love around us. We must distinguish between the Love of God and love as described by the world.

The love of God is not emotional or impulsive. His kind of love is exceptional in that He died for us while we were yet sinners. We were condemned to die but Jesus Christ died to ransom us.

As we celebrate Easter in this month, let us bear in mind that Jesus LOVES us and died for us to set us free.
