We started our staff worship this morning reflecting on news of a secret meeting between Chinese officials and leaders of the banned underground Protestant Church has marked the first significant step towards reconciliation in decades.
This is really excting to hear of a church that has been under so much pressure from its culture, and yet continues to grow and develop, and now the Chinese Government are
…anxious to work out the way to go forward. They have understood that the Protestant Church is not an opposition force but a force for stability and harmony.
The stats are amazing – the number of Christians is estimated by officials to be about 130 million (over twice the size of the whole population of the UK), compared to 74 million members of the Communist Party. This is amazing, God is really at work in this country, let’s keep praying for continued discussions.
