Reference Points

Singapore Transit

Traveling in Asia with co-workers, have been reminded again of the value of persons, relationships, trust, and honesty.

Have also seen how important it is to be able to honor together the values of truth and love without seeing ourselves as the measure of either.

Even more impressed with the deepening impression of what, in theory, we know: Jesus has no equals– apart from his Father and Spirit.

In so many ways I keep thinking that… nowhere can we find another measure of truth and love that reinforces so completely the values of persons, relationships, trust, and honesty.

    Hello Mart & Friends –

    I must confess I know little of the measure of truth in Singapore. The default setting is most likely secular. There must be many Muslims and traditional Chinese religious adherents as well. But, in such a mega-city, there is huge potential for the Gospel to take hold – supplanting the modern, secular measure of truth – establishing the divine connection.

    It seems to me that there is a growing Christian community all over the world – in places where there is hunger to be valued as a person – to be welcomed into relationships where trust and honesty displace the old fear and lies of dictatorship and repression. Singapore is a prime location for educated, young people seeking real meaning in Jesus Christ – the very opposite of the Maoist and utilitarian measure of human worth.

    “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” (2 Corinthians 5:17)

    You must have much to share from your travels in China!
