Tomorrow, the China Graduate School of Theology (CGST) will begin its three day seminar in three churches in California, The Golden Gate Christian Reformed Church, the fifth Home of Christ Church in Cupertino, and the Lord's Grace Church respectively.
The seminar, led by Dr. Kevin Xi Yi Yao from Beijing, will focus on giving Chinese intellectuals and foreign exchange students the perspective of the Chinese Christians, and how this viewpoint can be used in understanding the developments in China. For example, the dilemma of the churches facing the change in religious tolerance and the shifting of social issues. The seminars will be conducted in Mandarin.
Tony Yip, the CGST coordinator for the seminar, said that CGST wants Dr. Yao to be a model for the intellectuals, who are often non-believers, and for these attendants to understand how the gospel can change a person's life.
"[CGST] will only hope for the best and pray that the spirit moves them," said Mr. Yip.
