Amidst controversies, the Good News Mission (GNM), supported by YAN (Youth Association of Nagaland) had a soiree on Wednesday at the mission centre at Walford area where invitees and fellow friends of GNM made their presence felt.
It was an evening of fellowship where around 30 Korean dishes were laid for the guests to savor mouth-watering Korean delicacies like Gimbab, Tteockbboki, Sanjeok, Odeng etc. Classical gospel musical rendition was presented by students of Gracia music Preparatory school and Lincoln school in Korea.
The garden party on Wednesday was hosted amidst boycott call against the GNM by various organizations. Some of local people were overheard saying, “All good and truthful proposition face wrath and that we must never give up”, while some were of the opinion that Pastor Park’s preaching was not in any way ‘heretic’.
The programme began with a prayer by Soo Yeon Kim, Pastor from Orissa, welcome note by the IYF president Pastor Kim who also exhorted the Naga youth to get connected in the activities of the spiritual crusades. He also mentioned that problems with the youth were not only faced in Korea but worldwide including Nagaland.
It may be mentioned that International Youth Fellowship (IYF) is being supported by the Government/Congressmen of 80 countries.
Rev Ock Soo Park delivered his sermon with realistic examples of life and experiences from different individuals around the globe which had relevance in the Bible.
“Bible tells us about our heart and the heart to have a change for Christ”, said Rev Park. He also spoke on peace, happiness, and adultery (referred to John ch.8) repentance, bringing the death to life etc.
“If one has a very dirty, filthy, lustful heart wouldn’t one have the heart to change the heart? So does the Bible talk about bringing about a change in our lives for Christ”, said Park.
He talked about the ‘eternal lamb’ Jesus Christ who sacrificed His life for the sins of mankind. Referring to the problem of drug abuse, he said that change can happen only through Jesus. He concluded his sermon by urging to Naga youth to stand united in the cause for Christ for a brighter generation.
