Hi there,

Yes, their services are bilingual, followed an prayer circle (also bilingual) and then a communal lunch.

Hope can see you tomorrow :-)

This church has just moved to the former Hangout location on Back Street. The Hangout gave up the space and moved to a (probably less expensive location just opposite the Lamma Corner shop, besides the former Just Green location, close to the Tin Hau Temple.

So my neighbourhood in Sha Po Old Village will be a little quieter on Sunday mornings. Here's the flyer I picked up while walking by the bible study after the Sunday mass on Back Street. Very interesting reading and a clear declaration of the church's goals and direction:

Hoping to transform Lamma into an Island of Gospel - with a giant cross up on a hill slope (discussion) - and converting as many as possible of our 6,000 residents into believers who "are of one mind, closely related and cohesive" and who'll follow every word of the Old and New Testament in the "always reliable, error-free bible" as the absolute Truth.

Check out their new blog http://www.hkjoshuachurch.org for more details about this "bilingual church", but in Chin. only so far.

I'm hoping to have one more talk with Pastor Kong soon about their highly ambitious plans for Lamma which is currently a haven for people of so many different faiths and religions. It's also a haven for the non-religious and faithless who are usually living in peace, harmony and even respect with all the believers.

For example, a few upcoming events in the vibrant spiritual life of Lamma:

We've just visited an almost unknown Zheng De Taoist/Buddhist temple above SKW a few days ago. Their Yu Lan (start of Ghost Month) celebrations will last for 3 days next week.

The Chinese Yu Lan Festival around the YSW Tin Hau Temple will be celebrated on Monday, Aug 20, all day.

The Lamma Meditation Centre (above the Thai restaurant) is attracting orange/red-robed Tibetan llamas and features regular public events.
But the former Sacred Heart Buddhist centre seems to have gone quiet?

There'll be big feasts and celebrations for the End of Ramadan, Eid ul Fitr, the Muslim month of fasting, this Sunday, Aug 19, for the considerable numbers of muslims living here. I'd love to attend one someday....

The extremely ultra-secretive Canaan Garden (not related to the Canaan Church) has been tearing down and/or renovating many of the ruined houses in Shek Li (the former sanatorium (?) off the coastal path to Pak Kok, just below the Lamma Forest project). They're converting it into a Christian sect retreat, it is believed, judging from all the crosses painted on their walls last year.

The Church of Christ in China, well-established on Lamma for many years with a large number of (usually very low-key) members is holding regular events for members and guests in their church up in Po Wah Yuen and the Lamma Mission Centre at the top of Hung Sing Yeh (still active?)

The Catholics are probably the most high-profile Christian group on Lamma, with the cheerful, brown-robed Poor Clares nuns in the Portiuncula Monastery above the Lady of Lourdes Kindergarten, with their many community- and family-focused events and parties happening frequently.

... and to conclude this very short and incomplete overview of Lamma's spiritual/religious side (please add your own), the Philosophy Cafe will discuss Spirituality for the non-religious next Wed, Aug 22.

....... and most of the followers might be fond of consuming swine in contrary to :

Leviticus 11:7-8
New International Version (NIV)
7 And the pig, though it has a divided hoof, does not chew the cud; it is unclean for you. 8 You must not eat their meat or touch their carcasses; they are unclean for you.

......and some of the followers ......might be ignoring the following Bible verse :

Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise. (Proverbs 20:1 KJV)

Well, it doesn't mention beer....

Thank you for your learned words of elucidation and education, Ilovelamma.
It's been quite a while since anybody has quoted Bible verses in this forum.

So where on Lamma will there be any Eid ul-Fitr feasts?
The End of Ramadan date seems to depend on the visibility of the New Moon in different locations, yesterday or today, according to a Muslim friend feasting on a huge, family-sized dinner, right after sunset in Best Kebab two days ago.

Jesus' birth year is wrong: Pope
RHEANA MURRAY
Wednesday, November 21, 2012 New York Daily News
The Christian calendar has Jesus' birth year wrong, Pope Benedict XVI claims in a new book.

The mistake was made by a monk named Dionysius Exiguus who overshot Christ's birth by "several years," the Pope wrote, according to the Telegraph.

Benedict's claim, published in his third and final volume of Jesus' biography, aligns with similar views of historians who have said Jesus could have been born anytime between 7BC and 2BC.

The Pope also argues that there were no oxen, donkeys or camels "common in nativity scenes" at the birth of Christ.
