Bishop Exhortation<br />

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,<br />

As Methodists believers, we insist that faith and good works belong together as expressed by James in his<br />

letter. What we believe must be confirmed by what we do. To be sure, we are saved by grace! Simply defined,<br />

grace is the love and mercy given to us by God because God wants us to have it, not because of anything<br />

we have done to earn it. In Ephesians 2:8-9 it says: -“For it is by grace you have been saved, through<br />

faith – and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God – not by works, so that no one can boast.”<br />

In other words, our salvation must be expressed in ministry and mission in the world. The integration of<br />

personal piety and social holiness i.e. to live a life of scriptural holiness has always been a hallmark of the<br />

Methodist tradition. We affirm the biblical precept that “faith by itself, if it has no works, is dead” (James 2:17).<br />

Methodists emphasizes that Christian doctrine and Christian ethics are inseparable. For faith should always<br />

inspire service!<br />

What God has done for us through Christ, we offer our lives back to God through a life of service. Hence,<br />

discipleship, mission and service are inseparable. As disciples, we become active participants in God’s<br />

activity in the world through mission and service. This is always our understanding and emphasis right from<br />

the beginning when John Wesley started the Methodist movement. He emphasizes that our love of God is<br />

always linked to love of neighbor, and to a passionate commitment to seeking justice and renewal in the<br />

world.<br />

For Wesley, there was no religion but social religion, no holiness but social holiness i.e. faith always includes<br />

a social dimension. When we participate in the church community, we grow in faith. We are therefore<br />

nourished and equipped for mission and service to the world. Therefore, one can never be a solitary<br />

Christian.<br />

Methodism has sought to be both a nurturing community and a servant community right from the beginning<br />

when Wesley started the movement! For the early Methodists, members of Methodist Societies and Class<br />

meetings met for personal accountability and nurture through giving to the poor, visiting the prisoners, and<br />

working for justice and peace in the community even as they have received the fullness of God’s grace for<br />

themselves. They saw themselves as existing to reform the nation, and that is, to spread scriptural holiness<br />

over the land.<br />

As contemporary Methodist Christians, may we continue to remain true to our calling i.e. to spread scriptural<br />

holiness over the nation where God has place us here in Australia. And we pray fervently that God will raise<br />

up godly leaders in this nation.<br />

Servant of the Lord,<br />

Rev James Kwang<br />


District Superintendent’s Message<br />

Rev Ling Tiong Ting (City Light MC)<br />

Revival is unrepeatable. Each revival movement that has happened in the Church’s history has never been the same. But<br />

every church revival movement is inseparable from the works of the Holy Spirit. If the Holy Spirit does not kindle the fire of<br />

revival, there would not be any revival. Is revival the result of man’s work? If so, then it is not revival – the church may be<br />

full of people, but it may not mean a scriptural revival. Scriptural revival is not kept within the four walls of a church<br />

building, but goes out from the church into the world.<br />

I read an article recently talking about what the Mayor of Jakarta, Indonesia, had done for the city. Basuki Tjahaja<br />

Pumama 钟 万 学 is the first Chinese person to become Mayor of Jakarta. Not only that, he is a Christian. It is hard to<br />

imagine, a Chinese Christian being Mayor in a country where the majority of the population is Muslim. As Mayor, he aimed<br />

to demolish the red light district in Jakarta, something the previous Muslim Mayors, such as the incumbent President of<br />

Indonesia, Joko Widodo, did not dare to do. At the most they would just raid the red light district every once in a while.<br />

Pumama was determined to get rid of it completely. This was a thankless task.<br />

Amazingly, when the council started to demolish the site, there was no protest or bloodshed. The devoted Christian<br />

Mayor feared God, and hated sin. Blessed are those who hate what God hates.<br />

We can gradually see the society of Indonesia experiencing scriptural revival. If the church experiences revival<br />

internally, the fire of revival will then be brought into society.<br />

Today, we can find churches with large congregations in major cities across Australia. These churches, frankly<br />

speaking, are not the result of scriptural revival. But how did these churches increase in numbers? One of the main reasons<br />

is that their congregations were unhappy or unsatisfied with their original churches and thus left. This group of church<br />

worshippers can be called ‘Silent Exodus Christians’. A Christian added to a church from another church is not a case of<br />

scriptural revival, as there is no lost soul being added to God’s kingdom. Unless non-Christians are added to the church<br />

after being converted to Christ by the power of the gospel, then scriptural revival then had taken place.<br />

After 200 years of persecution, a church in the Roman Empire had suddenly increased in numbers. Why? Emperor<br />

Constantine had a dream before he fought against his opponent. He saw a cross in his dream and he was told he needed to<br />

fight under the banner of the cross. The emperor asked his army to make a banner of the cross after he woke up. This was<br />

a war that would decide if his Empire lived or died. His army, unexpectedly, defeated his opponent’s army.<br />

Because he won the war, Constantine was baptised and was added to the church. This was an incredible and<br />

unbelievable thing to happen for the church. The Emperor became a Christian and created decrees that gave the church<br />

preferential treatment. If you were a Christian, you could easily find a job and you didn’t need to pay taxes. The Empire also<br />

allowed Christians to have a free day from work. On top of that, the Empire gave money and land to the church so that it<br />

could build a worship place. From that moment, people flooded into the church.<br />

If one’s boss was added and became a Christian, would you, as a subordinate, not also want to join the church?<br />

Consequently, many subordinates become ‘Christians’. We do not know their actual motives for joining the church. Were<br />

they following a trend or did they really experience repentance? We can, however, guess that many were following the<br />

trend.<br />

It is easy to make a church corrupt by letting opportunists, busybodies and corrupted people affect the church’s<br />

ministry. Are we assuming that the churches that increase in quantity are the outcome of quality? In His own time, God will<br />

show His act of justice in these churches. Today, I believe, we who call ourselves Methodists should not walk in the broad<br />

way, but the narrow way. We cannot compromise on quality in order to embrace quantity.<br />

Did Constantine’s policy bless the church? No, it did not. Since then the church started to decay and become<br />

depraved. Martin Luther (1483-1546) the reformer had said, “The church has been captured by Babylon in the middle ages.<br />

This is the darkest age for the church ever.” He called these thousand years “The Babylonian captivity of the church.”<br />


Does scriptural revival mean an increase of the church’s population? No. Even if a church is crowded with a large<br />

congregation, society could still be corrupt; this indicates that it is not a scriptural revival. John Wesley’s revival was a<br />

scriptural revival which made an impact on the society in England. From studying this history of revival, we can see how<br />

their society had been transformed and renewed.<br />

A church with a crowded congregation is either the work of the Holy Spirit, or the beginning of ruin. As Proverbs<br />

16:18 says, “Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall” (NIV).<br />

If Methodist churches do not go back to when John Wesley started the church, we will lose our goal. We will put the<br />

secondary goal as the first, and the first as the secondary.<br />

Scriptural revivals are a right that has been given to the church. The Holy Spirit is only entrusted to the true, saved<br />

Christians who experience scriptural revival. Since Methodism is the product of scriptural revival, we, then, should continue<br />

to experience the fire of revival. May God be with us.<br />


A Reflection on lAMM’s Methodist studies couRse<br />

One night in 1709, a pastor’s house caught on fire. The pastor and his wife had many<br />

children and shepherded them out of the house. Once outside, to their horror, they<br />

realised that one of the children was missing – their six-year-old son was still in the<br />

burning house! The boy appeared at an upstairs window, but there seemed to be no<br />

way to reach him and all hope seemed lost. However, in a moment of inspiration,<br />

rescuers ran up to the house, stood on each other’s shoulders and plucked the boy<br />

from the window. Moments later, the roof fell in.<br />

Such a dramatic rescue led to the boy’s mother describing him as a “brand plucked from the burning”, a<br />

description that is biblically inspired (Zechariah 3:2). She truly believed that the boy was saved by God for<br />

a special purpose, and she was right - for that boy was John Wesley, the founder of Methodism.<br />

This incident was one of the many interesting things I learned from LAMM’s Methodist Studies course in<br />

April 2016 in Perth, taught by Bishop Rev Dr James Kwang and ably assisted by his wife Auntie Kim.<br />

I would certainly encourage everyone to attend this course when they have the chance, the main reason<br />

being it will give you a better appreciation of the rich history and spirit of the Methodist Church and our<br />

identity as Methodists. There are many reasons people give for leaving the Methodist Church today. For<br />

example, they may say that the church does not have inspired singing, or does not do enough for the<br />

community, or is lacking in charisma and power. If that is the case, then that church is not holding true to<br />

the history and spirit of Methodism and its founder and has actually lost its Methodist identity. Methodists<br />

are meant to be singing people – Charles Wesley wrote some 6000 plus hymns! Methodists are meant to<br />

be concerned about the community – early Methodists set up nursing homes and clinics and schools (ask<br />

somebody from Sibu where they studied and there is a good chance they will say “Sibu Methodist”). And<br />

Methodists are meant to be powerful people – Methodism was a movement that completely revitalised<br />

England in the 1700s. An understanding of the rich history and spirit of the Methodist Church reveals the<br />

shortcomings of the church today. However, armed with this understanding, may we Methodists not leave<br />

the church, but instead rise up and revitalise the church and community as God intended Methodism to do.<br />

So again I would encourage everyone to attend this course when they have the chance. It is not a coincidence<br />

that we are in the Methodist Church today. God saved John Wesley from the fire for a special purpose.<br />

Today, it is up to us to understand our place in that special purpose and continue the extraordinary<br />

work that God has been doing through Methodist believers throughout history.<br />

Forward<br />

When Christians think of ‘godly living,’ they usually understand it as relating to spiritual disciplines, such as<br />

time in devotion, prayer, and fasting, etc. However, for John Wesley, godly living far surpasses these elements. We<br />

have good reasons to believe that Wesley’s theological take concerning godly living, was the foundation and<br />

momentum for the spiritual revival he led in 18 th century England, which helped steer England away from a bloody<br />

revolution similar to that of France.<br />

Most people would agree to the uniqueness of the 18 th century. England at the time was facing the torrential<br />

impacts of rationalism which accompanied the Enlightenment, the challenges of the Industrial Revolution, and the<br />

difficulties relating to the independence of its American states. The effects of such extended to the political,<br />

economic, cultural, and religious spheres of the whole nation, compelling leaders of every field into an attempt to<br />

adjust and respond to the extraordinary changes.<br />

In such a time of rapid change, the Church of England should have ideally prioritised its efforts in being<br />

faithful to Scripture and effectively serving the people of the era. However, the church was poorly prepared for<br />

embracing such challenges. Fortunately, God did not overlook the needs of England and its church, raising up the<br />

likes of John Wesley and others during this time of internal and external strife, to spearhead an unprecedented<br />

revival movement which would eventually extend to the world.<br />

How exactly did John Wesley achieve such a task? To answer this question, we will explore one of his<br />

fundamental theological and doctrinal ideas – that is, the doctrine of “Christian Perfection.”<br />

Christian Perfection<br />

Rev Dr Yuk Chong Liong<br />

(Dean of Chinese Department Melbourne School of Theology)<br />

Translated by Ps Wilson Liao<br />

John Wesley, as a “man of one book”, placed great emphasis on the biblical and theological concept of<br />

“Christian Perfection.” Jesus said, “Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect” (Matt 5:48). This,<br />

however, is also a concept that has stirred a lot of controversy. The centre of the debate is on the term “perfect.”<br />

Some people believe that it is impossible for a Christian to reach perfection in this life time.<br />

However, is it not true that we ought not to lower the standard given by Scripture? K. C. Kinghorn said, “The<br />

holiness of the heart and life of a Christian appears many times in scripture as both command as well as promise…<br />

some Christians always believe that it is impossible for people to reach such spiritual heights… From a theological<br />

perspective, believers generally believe that they can participate in the righteousness that Christ has achieved for<br />

us. However, some people believe that they are unable to partake significantly in the righteousness provided by<br />

Christ.”<br />

Put simply, some Christians believe that God can free us from sin’s guilt, but do not believe that He can free<br />

us from sin’s grip. However, Paul wrote the following: “What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that<br />

grace may increase? By no means! We are those who have died to sin; how can we live in it any longer? But now<br />

that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God, the benefit you reap leads to holiness, and<br />

the result is eternal life” (Rom. 6:1,2,22).<br />

Of course, the “perfection” to which John Wesley refers is not what some people think. In fact, he did not<br />

mean perfection to be absolutely flawless, and this is not the meaning of the Bible either. In his writing, John Wesley<br />

briefly explained his doctrine of Christian perfection as follows:<br />

1. Perfection does exist, because it is mentioned in the Bible repeatedly.<br />

2. It does not occur prior to being declared righteous, because those who have been declared righteous still<br />

need to “go on unto perfection” (Heb 6:1).<br />

3. It is not only to be attained on the hour of death – because Paul spoke about those who reached perfection<br />

during their lives (Phi 3:15).<br />

4. This is not absolute perfection. Absolute perfection does not belong to man, nor to angels, only God is<br />

absolutely perfect.<br />

5. It does not make a person no longer depraved. As long as we are residing in our current bodies, it is<br />

impossible not to be depraved.<br />


6. Does “perfection” mean to be without sin? It is meaningless to debate endlessly over a word. Perfect means<br />

to be separate from all evil.<br />

7. It is “perfect love” (1 John 4:18). “Perfect love” is its foundation. Its characteristics, or its inseparable results,<br />

are to be joyful always, pray continually, and thank God for all things (1 Thessalonians 5:16).<br />

8. It is possible to continue to improve upon it. It does not have a pinnacle from which further improvement is<br />

impossible; nor is it impossible for it to continue to grow. It is possible for a person who has been made<br />

complete in love to grow, in grace, all the more rapidly than ever.<br />

9. It is possible for shortcomings to still exist, and it may also be lost. Regarding this, we have many example…<br />

10. There is usually a gradual process of works prior to and after attaining perfection.<br />

To further help us understand this concept, he also proposed some methods for its assessment. Firstly, he<br />

strongly emphasised that the mark of our Christian perfection is seen in our “purity of intention” and “whole-hearted<br />

devotion to God”. This means to have the heart of Christ, and to live according to Christ’s example. Secondly, the<br />

perfection of Christ is displayed in those who love God with all their heart and strength, and those who love others<br />

as they love themselves.<br />

V. I. Campell says: “The precious blood of Christ has freed us from the guilt of our sins, the power of the Holy<br />

Spirit has freed us from the bondage of sin, therefore we can, by the leading of the Spirit, obey the moral<br />

commands of the Scriptures with love… therefore, Christians can have a positive view of the commands given by<br />

Jesus to ‘therefore, be perfect, as your father in heaven is perfect’ (Matt 5:48), rather than see it as an arduous<br />

command.”<br />

Clearly, this teaching of John Wesley is a dynamic doctrine, and is necessary because it solves the problem<br />

of stagnancy in the spiritual life of a Christian, and motivates them to continue to pursue peaks of piousness,<br />

strengthening their resolve toward perfection, experiencing growth in their lives. When Christians are fixed on and<br />

motivated by loving God and others as himself, they are able to courageously rely on the grace of God to live out<br />

this truth in their life.<br />

The fulfilment of Christian perfection: loving God and our neighbour as ourselves<br />

John Wesley balances two spiritual principles for the fulfilment of the doctrine of Christian perfection: inward<br />

pious works (works of piety – loving God), and outward works of compassion (works of mercy – loving others). In<br />

other words, to John Wesley, the pious life is made up of these two inseparable spiritual principles working together<br />

in unison.<br />

John Wesley says: “In a Christian believer love sits upon the throne which is erected in the inmost soul;<br />

namely, love of God and man, which fills the whole heart, and reigns without a rival… In an exterior circle are all<br />

the works of mercy, whether to the souls or bodies of men… Next to these are those that are usually termed<br />

works of piety - reading and hearing the word, public, family, private prayer, receiving the Lord's supper, fasting or<br />

abstinence… Lastly, that his followers may the more effectually provoke one another to love, holy tempers, and<br />

good works, our blessed Lord has united them together in one body, the church, dispersed all over the earth – to<br />

love, and to do good, with zeal.<br />

Due to the influence of the doctrine of “Christian Perfection”, John Wesley committed himself to involvement<br />

in the works of mercy. These involved the following acts of service: feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, helping<br />

the stranger, visiting the sick and those in prison, comforting those in pain, avoiding the unbelieving ignorant,<br />

condemning the wicked, encouraging those who do good, and so on. This faith-filled social ethic stems from the<br />

believer’s love towards God and his neighbour.<br />

He unceasingly directed himself from the works of piety to the works of mercy. In the practice of his works of<br />

mercy, he personally sought welfare and justice for others, particularly the poor. We can see this emphasised<br />

particularly in the following ways: firstly, John Wesley believed in showing special favour to the poor. He worked<br />

hard to visit and show concern for the welfare of the poor, by, for example, the establishment of lending institutions<br />

so that they may become self-reliant, the provision of free medical services, and the provision of housing for<br />

impoverished women and children.<br />

John Wesley also courageously protested against social injustices: he specifically directed righteous<br />

condemnation against those who took advantage of the poor, and against professionals of low morality – such as<br />

merchants, the wine-makers, doctors, and lawyers.<br />

In addition, John Wesley was also against war, colonialism and slavery, because they destroyed the Godgiven<br />

dignity of humanity, and brought great sorrow and suffering especially upon the poor.<br />


Conclusion<br />

From the above analysis, it’s not hard to see why John Wesley was such a turning point for the eighteenthcentury<br />

British society and the state. Today, when we are agonising over how to increase the piety of believers,<br />

how to promote revival in the church and in our country, and as we try to find teachers to solve the problems of the<br />

individual, as well as problems of our society and country, we must return to our Christian spiritual heritage,<br />

seeking answers from John Wesley’s emphasis on “Christian Perfection.<br />

May our God, who through John Wesley launched an unprecedented revival movement in the England, also<br />

today, through our lives, use us to lead our churches and country into revival.<br />

District English Youth Leader’s Retreat Reflection<br />

(20 th April - 22 nd April)<br />

Throughout this retreat, I learnt many things through Rev. Elijah,<br />

Ps. Dexter and everyone there. Rev. Elijah was loving and<br />

genuinely concerned for each one of us and our ministries and<br />

had sacrificed a lot by coming to Perth and we are so grateful for<br />

his dedication and commitment to the work of God. He shared<br />

with us a passage from Ezekiel 37on the ‘Valley of the Dry<br />

Bones’ and what it means to have a vision. He told us that when<br />

we have a vision for something, we should not distract ourselves<br />

with other things but strive towards figuring out what God wants<br />

for us. He challenged me throughout his 3 talks and two things<br />

stood out to me; that the devil does not fear my studies, my ministry,<br />

my religion unless it is backed up with prayer; and secondly<br />

that being in a place that makes me uncomfortable is a good place to grow.<br />

This retreat was a wonderful experience, getting to spend time with everyone in the presence of God and having<br />

joyful fellowship was a great boost to morale. The final night we all split into separate groups consisting of each<br />

youth’s respective roles (i.e. all the presidents/treasurers etc. in one group). Here we shared our troubles and<br />

successes and was able to support one another through prayer. Following that, we split off into our own<br />

committees to prayer for our own individual selves and youth. Finally to end the night, we all gathered and everyone<br />

prayed for the 4 leaders of the youths. This whole night was a time of prayer which I believe brought everyone<br />

closer together and it was a night the devil would fear.<br />

This youth retreat wouldn’t have been possible without the help of WA District. The generous offer of paying half of<br />

all expenses was what made it affordable for a lot of people to be able to attend. With the youth paying 50% of the<br />

remaining amount and the committee forking out the other 50% was a great idea.<br />

Throughout the few days and couple of nights away, I’ve gotten to appreciate the beauty of God’s creation and his<br />

generosity. Through the constantly crashing waves on the shore, the amber rays from the setting sun and the<br />

different personalities of the brothers and sisters I spent this time with. I and many others I believe have been given<br />

hope through Rev. Elijah’s talks and it was all in all such a wonderful experience.<br />

The retreat was very refreshing, encouraging and motivational. Despite his busy schedule, we were able to fly Rev<br />

Elijah Chew over to speak about 'Visions and Dreams'. It was eye opening and challenging, as he asked where we<br />

thought our valley of dead bones were, if not, will be or if we had any. He said that it wasn't until we've been put in<br />

the center of desolation, will we finally see a vision from God; a vision that might seem almost impossible, difficult<br />

and challenging. But if we continuously pursued it with courage and perseverance from God, we can make a<br />

change, we can make things happen; God will breathe life into the dead bones.<br />

Thank you, WA District, for supporting us and making this retreat happen. It has definitely broke the ice among the<br />

district leaders and strengthened our bond as brothers and sisters in Christ. We would also like to thank Pastor<br />

Dexter and his team for initiating and hosting this retreat in such short notice. We thank and were very grateful to<br />

have had Rev Elijah with us, through the Holy Spirit he led and taught us many things. This retreat was very<br />

inspiring and we hope it will continue on next year.<br />

In the past, at the Grace MYF, leaders retreat usually consisted of bonding and reflection periods – to grow and<br />

understand one another, and to reflect on the progress of the youth. Upon evaluating the progress of the various<br />

Methodists youths thus far, Pastor Dexter suggested that we have leadership seminars in order to build up and<br />

train the new leaders, as all three youths have somewhat started from scratch in the beginning of this year. In other<br />

words, he sought out to solve the issue of inexperienced (new) leaders and to equip them.<br />


Additionally, on behalf of all the leaders that attending, we can all agree how grateful we were to have Rev. Elijah<br />

take time out of his schedule, and fly all the way to Perth to conduct this session on just a few weeks’ notice. His<br />

focus during this time was on the importance of having the vision that God has planted, as well as the cost to<br />

pursue it. He made us question what our individual valley of dry bones were, and whether we were properly<br />

nurturing our vision or letting the gifts given to us by God go stagnant. Likewise, Pastor Dexter and Rev Elijah<br />

constantly touched on the subject of prayer and its importance. The idea that stood out to me is when Rev Elijah<br />

pointed out that the Devil fears nothing from prayer less studies and works, as they do not pose a threat to him. It<br />

reflect upon what Ps. Dexter is constantly reminding our leaders – “If you are under spiritual attack by the Devil,<br />

which means he is trying to stop you.” These interconnecting ideas of being passionate and obeying God through<br />

the storm helped bring the various committees closer to becoming successful servants of God through this retreat.<br />

Personally, in my own committee over the course of the week following the retreat, I noticed that they speak out<br />

more on things they are passionate about, they are more transparent with issues that affect their lives, and most<br />

importantly, they don’t hesitate to step forward to pray for the group – they do it almost instinctively and out of a<br />

willing heart, rather than a responsibility. I am very keen to see these passions and fire in their heart be put God’s<br />

plan in these youths.<br />

Lastly, we concluded the session by talking and praying for the ministries of the other youths, and it was a gentle<br />

reminder that after all we are under the same God, and we are here to support one another. It really helped relate<br />

knowing that the other youths undergo similar issues as us, and this retreat truly did bring us closer as brothers<br />

and sisters under Christ. This retreat, although organized by the youths, would not be possible without Rev. Elijah<br />

as well as the CMCA for approving and more so assisting financially so that it wasn’t a huge burden on the leaders.<br />

This, I believe, played a big role to our young leaders, as it assured the support of the adults in the youth ministry<br />

as a whole. Once again, we are very grateful for the CMCA, Rev. Elijah and Ps. Dexter for all their contributions<br />

towards this retreat. It played a drastic role in building up leaders in our youth, and we hope to do so in the future<br />

due to its effectiveness.<br />

『Methodist Studies』Students with Bishop James Kwang and Mrs Kwang

Jesus was able to disciple a group of men to DO and to BE like him. Then He called His disciples to also go and<br />

make disciples in the world. It meant that they were called to live out the way that Jesus had taught and<br />

demonstrated to them. I believe, whether you like it or not, parents are called to disciple their children.<br />

The Greek word for disciple is mathetes which means learner. We are commanded TO LEARN and TO DO every<br />

single thing that our Rabbi (Jesus) did. It is a lifelong process. According to Mike Breen in his book titled Building<br />

a Discipling Culture, the process of learning takes three forms:<br />

1. Information<br />

Jesus taught the Sermon of the Mount and many parables to His disciples. For us, this learning step takes<br />

place in a classroom setting when teachers impart information and we listen and learn facts and ideas. Is<br />

making disciples as easy as the following equation?<br />

Right information / teaching = Right behaviour = Disciple<br />

Children need to first make a choice to receive the gift of salvation, then the choice to follow Jesus as His<br />

disciples. Can we just tell our children to read the Bible, pray, tithe, be kind, attend church, and tell others about<br />

Jesus? In that, we’re assuming that they can figure it all out themselves by giving them a to-do list to follow.<br />

We can ask them to pray, but we may forget that even Jesus’ own disciples had little clue as to how to pray<br />

rightly although they were close to Him. Thus, information alone has its limits. Hence, it is crucial that our<br />

children are not simply following the motions, but are encouraged to understand why they are doing what they<br />

do in desiring a relationship with Him. It goes from information to becoming a part of them, which in turn would<br />

lead them to the next step.<br />

2. Apprenticeship<br />

In Luke 11, when Jesus was asked by the disciples to teach them how to pray as He prayed, He did not simply<br />

give them another sermon. Instead, He taught them. This probably happened a lot. The disciples saw the life of<br />

Jesus as something they wanted for themselves. Jesus constantly taught and showed His disciples how He<br />

lived; clearly, a high level of apprenticing was going on.<br />

Jesus preached the Good News, healed the sick, cleansed the lepers and drove out demons. Then he sent out<br />

the twelve to do the same – and they were astounded to discover that they were able to do what He did.<br />

“Teaching and Theology were ways of describing reality and then Jesus showed His Disciples how to live in<br />

that reality.” Mike Green<br />

Thus, it is not enough for us to impart information to our children but to show and demonstrate to them every<br />

step in learning how to read the Bible, to pray, to love and forgive, to be humble, to confess, to trust God in<br />

time of adversity, and to give thanks at all times. While you might not be a perfect example, you must<br />

constantly strive to be a living example in their lives. Children learn from how we face our failures by His grace.<br />

Parents should invest their time, energy, skills and lives in their children, teaching them why they do what they<br />

do. Ultimately, be present with your children, so that you may fulfil your role to train them in the way they<br />

should go.<br />

3. Immersion<br />



Amie Chew (Camberwell MC)<br />

Family Column<br />

The disciples were almost always with Jesus. When He retreated to places, the disciples were immersed in a<br />

relationship where Jesus was completely accessible . They learnt big chunks of information from the Sermon of<br />

the Mount and how to develop skills in an apprenticing relationship. But by immersion, they saw how all of<br />

these things connected together to even the smallest things.<br />

As Jesus started his ministry in Capernaum, His reputation grew rapidly. One might say a revival had broken<br />

out in Capernaum. The disciples were probably very excited about His second day as they told Jesus that<br />

“Everybody is looking for you!” Amazingly, Jesus’ response was to “Let us leave and go to other places”. The<br />

disciples might have wondered, “Why and how would He know He was supposed to leave and not stay where<br />

He is currently most wanted and needed?” The answer lies in what He did early in the morning. The scripture<br />

stated that before dawn, He got up and spent time with His Father and then did something contrary to what<br />


seemed to be a reasonable course of action. He redefined what success was to His disciples – success was<br />

obedience to what the Father asks. He chose obedience over what seemed like the logical route.<br />

The disciples had known what prayer was and was shown how to pray. But now they were able to see how<br />

Jesus based His decisions on His prayer life.<br />

The same applies to when we want our children to learn Mandarin, even as a second language. We can make<br />

them sit in the classroom once a week to learn the language. But without much practice at home and being<br />

immersed in an environment where Mandarin is used to communicate, they will find it difficult to be fluent in the<br />

language. This may be why many students are willing to spend years in China where they can immerse<br />

themselves in the language and culture, which I reckon would be the best way of learning the language.<br />

By getting our children to a place where they can nourish themselves with the Bible, through prayer, community<br />

and other spiritual disciplines, they need to first immerse themselves in the culture of men and women whose lives<br />

reflect the life and ministry of Jesus Christ in ways beyond just what and how . This might only happen subtly, as<br />

children pick up the important lessons they would otherwise miss by living in a home and church where Jesus’ life<br />

is much desired and imitated.<br />

It is liberating to think that, with the working of God’s Spirit, over time, we can learn the ways of Jesus and do the<br />

things that He did while becoming His disciples. Hence, we are to lead our children by following the Master.<br />

In time, our children will learn by watching what we do, then do what we do.<br />

Family Worship Night Multicultural Sunday Worship and Music Training<br />

4. Visitation –Annual Conference Youth Director Ps Alan Lau visited us from 20 to 22 May and shared his vision with the pastoral<br />

5. Liturgical Training – On 4 June (Chinese: 9.00am - 3.30pm) and 5 June (English: 12.00pm – 2.00pm), we benefited greatly from<br />

the training and seminar conducted by Ps Shirley on various topics related to the church liturgy, to enhance our understanding of<br />

worship. We also invited our brother Ernest Zou to provide some training for our choir.<br />

6. Multicultural Sunday – On 5 June our Sunday service had a multicultural ‘flavour’ with songs and praises conducted in the local<br />

‘tongue’ and a sermon by Rev Chiu on “A church called by God”. Brothers and sisters also brought their favourite hometown finger<br />

foods and dessert to share after the service.<br />


1. There were about 70 elderly people who participated in the<br />

“Honoring Elders” event and received gifts during the<br />

Parents’ Sunday Service on 8 May.<br />

2. We have started a free English tutoring session before<br />

Sunday Service at our Preaching Point. The response is<br />

good. We hope that more new friends will be brought to the<br />

Sunday Service.<br />

3. Brother Darren Stone conducted the “Personal Evangelism”<br />

training (3 sessions in total) and participants carried out<br />

door-to-door evangelism during 8 to 28 May.<br />

4. Ps Alan Lau, AC Youth Director, came to visit our Chinese<br />

5. LAMM “Methodist Studies” Part B for EMP and Sherwood<br />

Church taught by Bishop Kwang was held from 2 to 5 June.<br />

6. We give thanks to Bishop Kwang who preached and<br />

conducted the Holy Communion during our English service,<br />

1. From 13 to 24 June, Pastor Li Fang and theological student<br />

Yang Xiaoli, along with other students from the local College<br />

Unity of Theology, will be on a mission trip to the Northern<br />

Territory. Please pray for their ministering to the indigenous<br />

people<br />

2. On 22 May, John Wesley Sunday, we highlighted Wesley's<br />

ministry and his teaching, and touched on how Christians<br />

should live the Holy Life, thus bringing the congregation to<br />

an awareness and understanding of the meaning of Methodism.<br />

3. Starting from February this year, we established a daily<br />

Bible reading program. Students who have returned to China<br />

and our current congregation connect together over the<br />

WeChat application to read the bible together, to encourage<br />

and use God’s word to inspire each other, release<br />

spiritual positive energy into the air, and to cleanse the spiritual<br />

void. This activity not only encourages individual<br />

Christians in their spiritual growth, but by the power of God,<br />

all us Chinese can come together to work together, in one<br />


1. The Sunday School had its annual family picnic on 12 June<br />

after service at 11:00am at Underwood Park. Students,<br />

parents, teachers and friends enjoyed a time of good<br />

fellowship .<br />

2. 16 participants from our Church attended the “Methodist<br />

Studies” workshop which was jointly organized by LAMM<br />

and Australia East District. We wish to thank Bishop and<br />

Mrs Kwang for coming over to Brisbane to teach the course<br />

from 2 to 4 June.<br />


4. In May we had three successful fundraisers, through the<br />

sale of food, donated auction items and so on, to support<br />

the missionary team travelling to the Northern Territory.<br />

5. On Mother's Day we had lunch together with the local<br />

Church of Christ in friendship, to build more support and<br />

share with each other.<br />

6. Please pray for us: most of the new Christians still prioritize<br />

earthly worth – some of them still work on Sundays. We<br />

need to pray for them.<br />

3. We thank Ps Alan Lau, the Conference Youth Director, for<br />

his visit to our Church, and in particularly for preaching in<br />

the English service and at the Preaching Point. His care<br />

towards our Methodist Junior Youth Fellowship, Young Adult<br />

Group, Youth Fellowship, Mandarin Youth Group and<br />
