Shalom partners in the Lord!

As we saw our recent agenda for '11 Synod, we found many heavy and important issues in our denomination:

such as, report on leadership (p.55), Intro. for the Ref. Confessions Translation by Faith Alive Co's report (p179ff),

Ecumenical & Interfaith Relations Co.'s report (p338ff.) and Faith Formation Co.'s Study (541ff.).

For example, I'm going to Synod as my classical delegate, assigned Adv. Co. for Publication issue about Reformed Confessions Translation. As I read them as well as other agendas I hope that our fellow workers share their opinions.

What is your concerns on this new translation presentation by Faith Alive's report (esp. its recommendation in p.182)?


주안의 동역자들께,

매년의 교단 총회의 안건을 보면서 아래의 주요 안건들을 새롭게 보게됩니다.

교단본부의 리더쉽(55쪽), 출판사의 새 개혁 고백들의 번역  문제(179쪽 이하), 통합및 타교단 교류 건(338족 이하) 또 믿음형성의 건(541쪽 이하) 등으로 우리들의 생각들을 함께 나누어 보다 더 나은 우리가 속한 교단이 이 시대에 되어야 할줄로 여겨집니다.

한 예로, 제 노회의 총대로 총회에 참석하는데 상임위원회 -새로운 개혁 고백들의 번역의 필요성' 에 배치돼 준비하고 있습니다:

'여러분은 이번 새로운 우리 고백들의 번역을 어떻게 생각하는지요? 알기를 원합니다. 아시는대로  내년(2012 총회에 상정될) 제 4의 '벨하고백'을 우리들은 지금 심의/검토하는 중에도 있는 실정입니다.


My concern isn't so much about whether or not the committee were diligent in their work or if what they wrote was appropriate, but that the people, myself included, haven't seen enough explanation of the changes they made.  As I listened to a member on the committee explain their word choices I began to understand better why certain terms or phrases were used.  It would be helpful for that detailed information to be provided and the denominations be given enough time to digest it.  This is an important change and as I grow older I see the wisdom in taking our time.

Congratulations and praise God for your appointment.

I am praying that you (as well as all other delegates) will discern God's Spirit as Synod convenes. Yes, there are many important issues that needs decisions. Try to read up on other issues as well - especially the diversity report.

I have not been diligent in posting things here as I should have. 


이번 총회에 가신는 것에 축하드리며 격려합니다. 하나님께서 귀하게 쓰실 것으로 믿습니다. 이번에 중요한 내용들이 몇가지 있지요. 주님의 인도안에서 잘 결정하실 것을 믿고 부탁드립니다. 

앞으로 계속 post 를 올려 주시기 부탁드립니다.
