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 ...

There is Posterity for the Peaceable. (Psalm 37:37)

2019/07/31  

Futami Masayoshi, Chair of Treasurer Committee Mark the blameless, and behold the upright, for there is posterity for the peaceable. (Psalm 37:37) NCC held the 70th Anniversary Missionary Conference in July this year, and adopted the “NCC Mission Declaration 2019.” The word "peace" is used seven times in the declaration. 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 ...

My Soul Magnifies the Lord (Luke 1:46-48)

2019/03/13  

Junko Kikuchi, head of the German-speaking Church Relations Committee My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, for he has looked with favor on the lowliness of his servant. Surely, from now on all generations will call me blessed. (Luke 1:46-48) Not a few of those who read the Bible might feel something odd when they see this verse in March. It is a part of the famous praise that was put in Mary’s mouth and is seen not now in Lent, but in the season of Christmas as one of the beautiful scenes. However, ...
