I will keep you from the hour of trial that is coming on the whole world. (Revelation 3:10)

2020/04/15  

Yukiko Maki, NCCJ Secretary Easter has arrived. Having been baptized on Easter, I have a special feeling about Easter that is different from Christmas. Easter is birthday as a Christian for me, and on this day, I am grateful for the year I spent safely, and it is also the time to reset myself for a new year that God will make use of. It all started when the junior high school I entered was a private Christian school. I wasn't born and raised in a Christian home, but I chose that school simply because I could attend from home. ...

Jesus Cries Together in the Cave of Tears

2020/03/04  

"Jesus began to weep." John 11:35 Kano Yoshitaka Kenzaburo Oe introduced the words of Simone Veil in his lecture. "What is the most important attitude for humans? It is to ask other people or neighbors ‘What’s your trouble?'" Asking this way is human, and that's where human-like behavior begins. To those who have been worried and anxious in the series of events caused by the new coronavirus, and those who have been worried about hate and elimination that have spread beyond the virus, with Simone Veil's word I greet you. You might be suffering. Under the same events that we ...

On Christmas

2019/11/06  

Hitoshi OKADA, General Secretary of Tomisaka Christian Center ...though he was in the form of God, ...but emptied himself, ...being born in human likeness. (Philippians 2:6-7) In Tomisaka, every year in December, we take German students of theology who participate in the Interreligious Dialogue Program organized by the NCC Institute of Religion to Yasukuni Shrine. Yasukuni is a shrine that honors people who died in the war for the Emperor and Class A war criminals as spirits (gods), and you can say that the shrine’s theology is a one that worships humans as gods or humans become gods. But God ...

2019/07/31

Every midsummer of August, we fully realize the preciousness of "peace" on many occasions in our country. Our hearts are awakened to the preciousness of peace at this moment, not even in retrospect to the memorial of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and the walk to defeat. However, ...

"Peace Be With You." (John 20:19-23)

2019/05/08  

Sungjae Kim, NCCJ General Secretary We learn how we recognize the grace of resurrection from the scripture. First, the blessings of resurrection would not be revealed to anyone. The disciples fled from the crucified Lord and, as written in the scripture, they were hiding in a room. What was floating in the room? It was sorrow, fear, remorse that they had abandoned the Lord and ran away, and it might have been an emptiness that they could not find a reason to live from now on. The revealing of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ, as an amazing grace ...
