感恩节亚裔盛装游行 The Carolinas Asian American Chamber of Commerce participated for the first time in this year's Thanksgiving Parade (Novant Health as the 2016 sponsor). It is the longest running parade in North Carolina of almost 70 years, having been founded in 1947. The Asian American community was the largest group participating, in what was considered the biggest parade in the Carolinas. Grammy awardee Anthony Hamilton was Grand Marshall, leading 17 marching bands, including the North Lincoln HS Marching Band, winner of the 2016 Battle of the Bands. There were more than 35 different walking groups, many colorful floats, beloved mascots, & fanciful "characters" on stilts and segways (these balloon figures said to be invented by Robert Krumbine of Charlotte Center City Partners, main organizer of the parade), and huge iconic figure balloons. It was watched by an estimated crowd of 100,000 people ( and 1.5 million more on TV). Mayor Jennifer Roberts was in a white Christmas sleigh drawn by horses, with Ms North Carolina, McKenzie Faggart as Mrs. Claus. Ms South Carolina Rachell Wyatt was also there. Many celebrities performed on floats, among them, Jane Koons (Charlotte Music Awardee), Kristy Lynn, Teresa Guidry (country pop star) from Albemarle, on a real stage coach of Wells Fargo Bank, songwriter/singer Kristina Lachaga, 16 yr old Carter Faith Jones, Tyler Mingo, and the Swimmac Olympians. For Ozella Goods, this 94 year old lady's special birthday wish was fulfilled when she rode in one of the floats. When the Carolinas Asian American Chamber of Commerce or CAACC was founded in 1999 by Dr. Ki-Hyun Chun together with Jack Wang, Ben Li, Esq., its primary goal was to unify the growing communities of Asian Americans in Charlotte and nearby counties. There were 13 Asian groups

originally identified and represented. Thereafter, Dr. Chun founded the Asian Festival in 2000, to celebrate the diverse Asian cultures during the Asian American Cultural Heritage Month of May. Through the years, the CAACC or Asian Chamber has prospered and grown, together with the increase in the number of Asian American communities. CAACC has continued to promote, sponsor, support efforts to sustain traditional heritages thru excellence in business practices, education, volunteerism & public service". It acts as a Business Development Council to attract Asian investments in the region, does leadership training of new Asian community leaders; has an active program to help in refugee resettlement, providing assistance in securing social services & business development. CAACC has been a partner of Crossroad Charlotte since the early beginning, to advocate for diversity and inclusivity, including the current issues of upward mobility. It also has a mentoring program for Asian high school students & a wellness program for seniors. It has a Small Business Resource Center offering some consultancies. The CAACC has greatly enriched the cultural landscape of Charlotte and the environs, far more than was envisioned by the founders. Thus in 2003, the 2nd CAACC President, Dr. Nini founded the Miss Asian Festival, to engage the young generation in the celebration of their own cultural heritage and take pride in being Asian Americans. The following year, CAACC assisted in the CMS first Chinese Language Program. In 2005, Dr.John Chen founded the Charlotte Dragon Boat Festival, to reach out to the corporate world and other mainstream organizations in Charlotte via the fastest growing sports in the country, for team building. In May 2008, The Miss Asian Festival

morphed into Miss Asia Carolinas, a Multicultural Showcase, and was expanded to include pre-teens. In October, 2008, the Gandhi Park was inaugurated under the Carolinas Asian Heritage Association of CAACC. CAHA President Gary Bhojwani founded the Gandhi Unity Festival with the help of wife Bina & his family and current CAACC President Nimish Bhatt, who leads the programs for refugees and seniors. Phin Xaypangna, the 2nd CAHA President started the "I am Asian" annual essay contest in 2015, to encourage students to delve deeper into their Asian roots. This year, in May 2016, the first Asian Music & Dance Fest was founded by Dr.Nini, to recognize the artistic accomplishments of all Asians, with the winner, 9 year old Evan Xie going to Hollywood to perform at a Red Carpet Event, produced by Jeff Cheen, Founder of the Charlotte Music Awards. As the region's leading Asian organization dedicated to fostering cooperation and partnerships, the CAACC was invited to the Thanksgiving Parade by the organizers, Charlotte Center City Partners. CAACC was one of the biggest group in the parade, highlighted by a towering 50 feet tall helium-filled Golden Dragon balloon of the Peaceful Dragon led by Eric Sbarge and the Lion and Dragon Dance Troupe. The humongous balloon was carried by the members of the Charlotte Dragon Boat Association (led by Dr. John Chen & Mylene Clemente). CDBA also helps organize the Charlotte Dragon Boat Races at the annual Asian Festival at Ramsey Creek Park, Cornelius. The colorful dancing groups surrounding the signature Golden Dragon balloon were from the Indian communities led by Sharada Gullapalli and Chinese

Asian cultures represented in Charlotte encompass over 13 nations. One of the missions of the CAACC is to unite all of these groups to better service the public. Asian history spans thousands of years and its culture is rich and diverse. The CAACC strives to provide business opportunities and to promote business activities through cultural events, such as the annual Asian Festival & Dragon Boat Races each spring and Asian celebrations in the Fall that display our resources and share with you our ethnic qualities. Forty five years ago, there were less than 200 Asians and only 8 Asian businesses in the Regional Charlotte Area, but this number has grown to 72,000 Asians and 1,150 businesses directly involved with Asians. Considering average gross sales of $630,000 a year per business, the Asian population of this area is generating $725 million in revenues, contributing greatly to the regional economy. We invite you to join the CAACC for unique resources, and then cross the bridge between the East and the West.■ Dr. Ki-Hyun Chun (Founder & the first President)

FILIPINO AMERICANS CELEBRATE 29 YEARS of SERVICE The Filipino American Community of the Carolinas, the only Filipino association in Charlotte and environs, which has withstood the test of time, the vicissitudes of circumstances, (yes, even the "slings and arrows of outrageous fortune" & fate), celebrated its 29 years of existence, with a FILIPINIANA

working, dedicated officers and equally passionate volunteers. It also was able to embark on many projects to give back to the community & help the needy. Since 2012,some were done more feasibly, thru the Filipino American Spirit, a 501 (C) 3 , tax free, tax deductible entity for education &

BALL. It was held on November 12, 2016 at The Oasis , University City., with more than 430 in attendance, some coming from as far as Fayetteville,Winston- Salem, Raleigh, Albemarle, Gastonia, NC, Columbia, Greenville, Asheville, Hilton Head, Rockhill SC, Florida, etc. The FACC Galas , started in 1998 by the Joaquins with the help of the early Filipinos in Charlotte, paved the way for the formation of a vibrant community of Filipino Americans in the area, who were nuclear & power engineers, health professionals, (doctors, nurses, physical therapists, medical technologists,etc.), teachers, accountants in banking institutions, military personnel and managers/ employees in local businesses, and lately IT specialists, and retirees from UN & International organizations. Through the years, the Filipino American Community of the Carolinas, prospered and grew, under the leadership of the hard

culture. Such projects were:villages of houses for the poor (Gawad Kalinga/Ancop), disaster relief,( local and abroad), scholarships at all levels for the needy, (thru Ancop, Peace Corps Foundation) , helped start the Eskuelahang Munti for the teaching of Tagalog & Filipino culture, establishment of a Philippine Cultural Resource Center & Filipiniana Library at the Asian Library. The mission and goal of the FACC which is the preservation of the Filipino cultural heritage for the succeeding generations, has been manifest in the many events and member activities such as the Spring Fling/ Easter Picnic to welcome new members, the participation in the Asian Festival via the cultural booth, Filipino food booth, Dragon Boat Race, Miss Asia Carolinas Multicultural Showcase, the Asian Music & Dance Fest. Others are the traditional Flores de Mayo/ Mayflower Festival, the Philippine Independence Picnic, Rosary Fiestas/ Simbang gabi, field trips for senior

members, participation in the Gandhi Unity Festival in the fall. Tthe main event of the season, the Annual Gala, is a formal dinner dance with a cultural show, and lastly, the Christmas Party & General Election in December. In between, there were also participations in the events and festivals of the other Asian communities (Korean Goodbye to the Old Year, Vietnamese Tet Festival, Chinese New Year, etc.), in the spirit of unity and cooperation. In spite of the reduced number of Board members this year, and their late start, the FACC Board 2016 was able to fully serve the community with all the traditional events and activities, and more. The officers are to be commended for a successful administration, especially for the outstanding success of the 29th Gala. There were notable improvements which contributed to this such as the early distribution and sale of the Gala tickets, with the security wristband already attached, (to avoid the long lines at registration); the pre-assigned table seatings, a bigger venue with a bigger dance floor to accommodate the bigger attendance, adherence to the schedule of the program, an interesting & short cultural program,

an exceptional DeeJay "Tut" aka Aaron Bryant providing popular & danceable music, (though perhaps something more was to be desired from the beef and salmon plated dinners, & the service, but given the

number of attendees, the limited wait staff tried their best). The wonderful array of Filipino native delicacies or "kakanins" later served at the dessert buffet made up for it ( sapin sapin, biko, cuchinta, leche flan, espasol, ube macapuno and, buko pandan cupcakes,all donated by the Filipino dessert cooks themselves. The festivities started with an invocation by Dr.Chris Villapando, Director of Faith Formation, Charlotte Catholic Diocese, followed by the US National Anthem by Abbie Armstead, the Philippine National Anthem by Ashley Perez & Janne Louise Ave. For the first time in the history of the Gala, there was complete silence and attention when the FACC ladies & a gentleman, walked into the dance floor to play the Anklung, an ancient musical instrument made of bamboo tubes attached to a frame, played by holding the frame at the top left, and shaking the tubes with the right hand holding the bottom right of the frame. It is Indonesian in origin (West Java & Banten Province), but is fast spreading in popularity in Southeast Asia. UNESCO recognizes it as a "Masterpiece of Oral & Intangible Heritage of Humanity. Under the baton of Prof., Cristy Calicdan, the group played a nostalgic Filipino kundiman/lovesong, entitled, "Ma-ala ala mo kaya" (Do you still remember?). The group is composed of Glo Grifehagen, (who

bought the set in the Philippines for Eskuwelahang Munti), Dell & Myrna Fallar, Dr. Lucy Cabugwason & sis Sally Musni, Guia Villapando, Merly Penilla, Cynthia del Mundo, Joan

Gandhi Unity Fall Festival - 2016

The Asian Herald

Avonne A. Yang & Phin Xaypangna

Under the leadership of Charlotte Asian Heritage Association (CAHA) President Ms. Phin Xaypangna and Carolinas Asian American Chamber of Commerce (CAACC) President Mr. Nimish Bhatt, the Gandhi Unity Fall Festival to celebrate human rights and respect for all human beings was once again a resounding success, especially when we consider that, last year, there was rain and cold to discourage attendance, and, this year, while there was warmth and sunshine, there was fear of violent protest (due to the recent killing of a black man by police) to discourage attendance. This event was held October 1st, 2016, on the Old County Courthouse Lawn, 700 East Trade Street, Charlotte, North Carolina, and drew about 800 people. The event featured performances, food concessions, children’s activities, cultural showcases, vendors, artists, exhibitors, and a traditional outfit photo booth. As in previous years, there was a food vendor that sold delicious Indian food. In addition, this year, we had two new vendors. One of them was a food truck that served delicious Korean cuisine in addition to Western dishes like cheeseburgers, and the other sold delicious shaved ice desserts topped with fresh fruits. The event was sponsored by NC MOM, Charlotte; C2 Education; Mecklenburg County of North Carolina; Chun Group; Integra Wellness Center; Belk; and Charlotte Gujarati Samaj. After the opening remarks and introduction, national anthem, and welcome remarks by Mayor Jennifer Roberts, the crowed was treated to a Palestinian dance performance; drums unity; a unity parade by children; Vaisnava Janato, a favorite song of Gandhi; two Chinese dance performances by Little Lotus; a peace song by Charlotte International School; a Nepalese dance performance; an Indian classical dance performance; a West African dance performance; a Mongolian cultural performance; a Bollywood dance; a Hmong song about honoring and remembering parents’ love and their sacrifices; and a Filipino dance performance. Six special moments were interspersed throughout the program: a garland ceremony where leis were placed around the neck of the statue of Gandhi, a reading of quotes by Gandhi, an announcement

of the winners and participants of the “I am Asian American” essay contest, a keynote speech by Rabbi Judy Schindler, a singing of “We Shall Overcome” in multiple languages, and a candle light vigil to end the celebration. Winners of the “I am Asian American” essay contest were: Nishitha Karumuri (1st place, $500); Noelle A.V. Escobal and Angel Nugroho (2nd place, $250 each); and Mai Ze Yang, Ricky Yang, and Yashushi Yang (3rd place, $100 each). These winners were each handed their checks and had their pictures taken along with the rest of the essay participants who each received a twenty-five-dollar gift card.

Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., being brought to the Gandhi statue as well. Seeing the intent gaze of many students directed at her and realizing that this was a teachable moment, Yang explained to the students that Gandhi was a man from India who showed the world that nonviolent means to protest immoral laws can be an effective way to overturn them without having to kill those who made the laws and that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., had followed Gandhi’s example to overturn unjust laws in the U.S. Yang explained that peace is very important, because if we kill those whom we disagree with just to make our point without using nonviolent means, then both sides end

A group of students attended this event. These students, as in the crowd of 800 that attended the event, represented the various hues of skin tone present in the human race. As one of these students observed elders saying words of peace and unity while placing leis around the neck of the Gandhi statue, he asked Ms. Avonne Yang, a member of the event planning committee, “What are they [the elders] saying?” Yang replied that they were saying words of peace and unity. Yang noticed during her reply that several of the students looked up intently at her and were paying very close attention to her. The same student who asked this question then asked, “Who is that?” while pointing to the statue of Gandhi. At the same time, there was a photograph of the

just killing each other and there will be no one left. This same student became very excited and said, “Oh, I am glad I came! I like peace. I wish_____was here!” It was as if the Universe was an ally in this celebration of human rights and respect for all human beings: One girl, also a student in this group, suddenly pointed to Yang’s hair and exclaimed, “Look, there’s something in your hair!” Yang picked up whatever was crawling in her hair and saw that it was the iconic, seven-spotted ladybug, a creature that is a valuable ally of the gardener, because it eats aphids and other garden pests that destroys the gardener’s plants. Taking advantage of this fact about the ladybug, Yang responded to the students, who were

continuing to gaze at her and pay close attention to her, “Oh, it’s a ladybug! Let’s not kill her. I’m going to let her go. You see, the ladybug is different from us, but she can do something that is very good for our gardens! She eats pests like aphids that eat our roses and garden plants. This is good for us, because we do not have to use poisonous pesticides to kill pests. The ladybugs eats the pests for us. This is an important lesson for you all. Remember that next time, when you meet someone that is different from you, do not fear them. They may be just like the ladybug! Just like the ladybug, they may have a skill that will help you, so do not fear them. Be peaceful to them and get to know them. Don’t kill them just because they are different and you fear them.” The students nodded in agreement and smiles beamed on their faces as they watched Yang blow gently at the ladybug and send her flying on her way without killing her. One little girl in particular looked up in awe at Yang and beamed a huge smile, as if Yang had said and done something profound that resonated with her. This was an “aha” moment for Yang and the children! What a powerful, transcendental moment! That moment in time made Yang realize that it is not the number of people that attended this Gandhi Unity Fall Festival that matters, but the message that matters and the fact that the message was getting through to the next generation that matters! Children are the future, so it is important that they come away with the message this festival was created to celebrate: human rights and respect for all human beings. During this time of racial unrest in the city of Charlotte following the killing of a black man by Charlotte’s city police, this message conveyed to children and understood by them is priceless! This festival achieved such an important transcendental outcome like this which cannot be measured in numbers in attendance or revenues lost or generated. A special thank you is extended to all volunteers, the judges of the essay contest, and the planning committee that includes Phin Xaypangna, Avonne Yang, Maura Chavez, Ann Gonzales, Anand Kothari, Amit Shah, Florami Lee, Holli Adams, Nimish Bhatt, Sunu Sebastian, Rance Xiong, Tue Mai Xiong, Denise Coleman, and Kasandra Tomboc for making this event once again successful and inspirational! A special thank you is also extended to the ladybug for showing us a metaphor of the value of all lives! ■

by overcoming numerous trials and hardships. These are not only physical ordeals but more critically challenges that temper the heart and will, allowing those who forbear to reach a higher realm of awareness. Telling the story onstage “Journey to the West” is a magical story of impossible feats and profound wisdom. Bringing this to life on stage requires an innovation in performing arts and the very best of an ancient tradition. Classical Chinese dance was born millennia ago and enriched dynasty after dynasty. It is an art form that includes flips, spins, high-flying jumps, and tumbling. With these techniques, a skilled performer can give the Monkey King his due capability, but how to travel 60,000 miles in one somersault; fight demons on the ground, in the sky, and underwater; and depict the 72 transformations of the Monkey King? Aiding the storytelling are Shen Yun’s groundbreaking digitally animated backdrops, which serve to extend the action beyond the stage. Dance and scene are synchronized together with an orchestra that includes classical Chinese instruments, creating an experience unlike anything else in the world today. A story from “Journey to the West” will be featured in the Shen Yun 2017 season, along with ancient myths and legends and the profound cultural and philosophical values of the Middle Kingdom’s 5,000 years of civilization. Shen Yun will have their performance at BELK THEATER at Blumenthal Performing Arts Center on December 30 and 31.

Children of Montagnard Refugees Receive a Helping Hand

They are Montagnards, a term that refers to the tribal peoples living in the Central Highlands of Vietnam. Their parents have come to America in recent years as refugees, and the challenges that these children face in achieving academic success here are steep. But thanks to a new partnership that Covenant has developed with Focus Charlotte, those challenges are becoming a little less daunting.

I am an Asian-American WINNER OF I AM ASIAN-AMERICAN WRITING CONTEST Full Name: Nishitha Karumuri North Mecklenburg High School Current Grade: 10th

Jeremy Lin, Mindy Kaling, Jimmy Cho, Michelle Phan, Nishitha Karumuri. What do they all have in common? Although they span across several cities, have various careers, and different skin tones, they share one key thing: they are all Asian-Americans. These influential figures in modern society have overcome several hurdles to be where they are and many of those stem from their ethnic background. Growing up as an Asian-American in today’s world can be quite difficult due to the stereotypes assumed by society and the variety of cultural differences they experience. Nevertheless, an Asian-American upbringing can be quite rewarding. As a fifteen year old AsianAmerican girl, brought up in a South Indian household, my childhood was quite different from others. Since the AsianAmerican community prides itself on excelling in science and

mathematics, I was enrolled in Kumon and received additional homework from School Supplement the minute I could read. Whenever I complained about how my nonAsian-American friends got to play outside in their free time, I would get the very typical “We came here from India to give you a better life. I walked ten kilometers in the rain and blazing hot sun just to get to school” speech. I would work diligently on my assignments so I would be rewarded with the opportunity to play outside, however, it did not always work out in my favor. Nine times out of ten, I was told to go back inside because I would get too tan and my “matrimonial quality” would go down. Being fair skin in the Indian society is highly valued because it is a sign of intelligence, beauty, and wealth. My mom would even apply the very popular Fair & Lovely cream in hopes of having a fairer skinned daughter. These cultural norms very quickly defined my standards of beauty, however, I found other things more important. Throughout my upbringing, my parents would always make negative remarks about those who

aspire to become a singer, dancer, actor, or something untraditional. The stereotype demonstrated in society about Asian-Americans and their career choices are quite true. One has three options: doctor, engineer, or lawyer. Otherwise, they are considered a failure and a disgrace to their family. As following tradition, I set my eyes on becoming a pediatrician. Sooner rather than later, due to my academic success, I was labeled the nerdy Indian kid. They would taunt me about being very smart, not playing any sports, about having bushy eyebrows, and bringing Indian lunches that smelled to school. It became apparent to me that the two cultural societies I was a part of (American and Indian) did not clash well, and I had to begin to make some changes within myself. Not knowing how to develop two facets of myself, I began to assimilate into the American culture. By bringing American lunches and altering my appearance, I began to fit in at school, but slowly, this changed things at home. I refused to go to temples, eat Indian food,

and speak my native tongue at home, thinking that it would solve my social issues. Quite contrary, it did not help my social issues and made me lose touch with my native Indian culture. I was quickly labeled ABCD, or “American Born Confused Desi” by aunties and uncles. This is a problem I believe several Asian-American youth face; finding a balance between their native culture, and modern American culture. As I grew older, I realized finding a balance between my cultures was not as difficult as it once seemed, and it actually helped me become a better person. Growing up as an Asian-American, sometimes it can feel like your life is very restricted and that your parents do not offer you freedom. Many Asian-American youth often compare their lives to the lives of non-Asian American youth and wish their life was as easy and carefree as theirs. I once too, longed to be just a simple American, so I could avoid the stresses I experience today. Nonetheless, I realized that my Asian-American heritage and the way I was brought up assisted in the development of my strong moral instincts, diversified understanding of other cultures, and my resilient work ethic, which makes me proud and honored to be an Asian-American. ◙

Exquisitely beautiful.” — Cate Blanchett, Academy Award–winning actress

A GRAND PRODUCTION TAKES YOU ON AN UNFORGETTABLE ADVENTURE IN ANCIENT TIMES, China was known as the land of the Divine. Everyone, from the emperors to the common people, believed that their culture was a divine gift. They lived in harmony with the universe and saw a connection among all things. And authentic Chinese culture carried these principles for thousands of years – until it was lost. WE NOW INVITE YOU to visit this lost civilization. To make the journey possible,

“The best! The best! The best!” — Charles Wadsworth, founding artistic director, Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center

夏洛特华人的政治觉醒 安康妈妈

不关心政治,仿佛是美国部分华人的一个特征。但是过 去的一年多里,这个特征显然被打破了。 我看到,很多夏洛特华人的政治觉醒是以大夏洛特 CMS 学区划分争论为导火索的。为了降低学区个别学校贫困学 生的密度,CMS 打算通过学区划分把贫困学生混合到其他 学校。这在历史上是有先例的,但最终结果是以牺牲优秀 的学校,拉低整个学区的教育水平为代价。众所周知,华 人父母是非常重视子女的教育的,这件事情促使大家团结 起来,走出家门,积极参加学区的各种集会,给相关人员 写信,为保卫孩子的学校而斗争。

December 2016 (15) The Asian Herald Chinese Section 当学区问题还没有解决,又发生两件事情促使华人进一 步政治觉醒。一是夏洛特的市长通过按心理性别选择厕所 的法案,二是纽约华人梁警官在执勤时过失枪杀非洲裔男 子被判刑。为了支持梁警官,夏洛特华人加入全美 34 个城 市的挺梁大游行,为争取梁警官的公正判决发出呼声。 这几件事情的发生,不禁让人反思,为了少数群体的利 益,而牺牲大部分人的利益,是正当的么?为了缓和警察 和非洲裔的紧张关系,华裔警官就可以被牺牲么? 当 2016 年美国迎来新一届总统大选时,华人带着这些问 题,开始思考究竟哪个政党可以代表自身利益。传统上支 持民主党的华人,开始意识到号称代表少数族裔的民主党 并不能代表自身利益,转而支持价值观传统的共和党。因 为华人崇尚教育,崇尚自我奋斗,追求机会平等,渴望法 律与秩序的健全。

2016 年第 12 期 總第 116 期 第


而在这次被称为美国历史上最重要的一次大选中,华人 的努力起了非常关键的作用。北卡作为一个重要的摇摆 州,对于选举结果有重要影响。在夏洛特以及三角洲地区 的支持共和党候选人川普的华人团结起来,以微信为平 台,在短时间内筹集资金,做飞行广告,树路牌广告。这 些活动并没有本地共和党办公室的支持,是完完全全的草 根运动。华人挺川群体出钱出力,目的只有一个,在政治 活动中不再沉默,以行动支持更能代表华人价值观的总统 候选人。 虽然亚裔在总体人口上支持民主党的更多,但是跟 2012 年的选举相比,支持共和党的比例上升三个百分点,支持 民主党的下降八个百分点,这一变化更多的反应在摇摆 州,成为影响大选结果的重要因素。

The News of Korean Association

Wells Fargo 은행 임시 무대에서 노래와 춤을 추며 공연을 했다. 이날 퍼레이드에 참석한 아시아 국가들은 중국(35명),인도(15),

아시안들의 힘을 모아 이 지역의 봉사활동 및 사회참여, 주류사회에 문화 발표 및 아시아 다민족의 특징을 소개하여 알리고 협력하는

베트남(15), 필리핀(타일랜드), 인도네시아(6), 부탄(6), 한국(5), 버마(5) 라오스(4), 말레시아(4), 네팔(4),파키스탄(2),뱅글라데쉬 (2),몽(2),타이완(1) 16개국이 참가 했으며 3팀으로 나뉘어서

취지로 만들어진후 지금은 Dragon Boat 경주 및 다양한 프로그램을 통하여 사회 기여 뿐 아니라 주류사회에 교량 역활을 잘 하고 있으며 아시안 나라사이에 잘 협력하며 이번 추수감사날

퍼레이드에 참가 했다. 아시안 상공회는 13 여개 아시아 나라가 고향인 아시안들이 모인 협회이고 1999년에 본사 발행인 전기현 박사가 샬롯지역

퍼레이드 계획 및 협조를 통하여 아시안들의 협력과 미국으로 이민 온 아시아인의 긍지를 빛나게 했다. 이번 퍼레이드에 여러 아시안 협회, 사업, 여러 기관이 도네이션을 했기때문에 퍼레이드가 가능했다.

추수감사날 퍼레이드에 샬롯한인회 임원참석 강남댄스로 인기 추수감사날 퍼레이드는 미국의 뉴욕, LA 등 큰 도시에서 축제로 전국에 방송되며 추수감사날을 즐겁게 감사하는 마음으로 보낼 수 있게한다. NC 에서 가장 오랜 전통을 가지고 있는 샬롯의 추수감사일 퍼레이드는 1947 년에 시작하여 70여년의 가장 크고 성대한 퍼레이드이다.

이날 퍼레이드는 S.Tryon S.Stonewall 에서 시작해서 N. 9th St. 까지 일(1) 마일 거리를 퍼레이드 했는데 9:30 - 11;30 까지 2 시간동안 이었지만 퍼레이드에 참석하는 전원은 오전 7시부터 준비하며 대기 했었다. 아시안 상공회(CAACC) 는 2016 년에 처음으로 이 퍼레이드에 참석했는데 가장 많은 인원과 아시아 각 나라의 화려한 민족의상으로 조국의 국기를

강남 스타일" 댄스를 추어서 길에 늘어선 관중들은 열광적으로 환호로 답했다. 이번 퍼레이드에는 17개의 행진악단이 참석했는데 2016년 밴드 특상을 받은 North Lincoln HS Marching Band 도 이 17 밴드에 들어 있었다. 35 구룹이 걸어서 행진하는데 참여 했는데

오색찬란한 캐럭터 풍선과 귀여운 마스콧 등 퍼레드 하는 사람들 뿐 아니라 동원된 여러 모양의 떠서 하늘을 장식하는 풍선들의 장관은 참으로 볼거리였다. 이날 퍼레이드 하일 라이트는 헤일림으로 채워진 50 피트가 넘는 "피스풀 드라곤 황금 용" 풍선 이였는데 에릭 사바지가 이끌고 리이온 & 드라곤 댄스 팀이 많은 박수 갈채를 받았다. 샬롯 시장 제니퍼 로버스씨는

휘날리며 퍼레이드를 했는데 North Tryon 양 길 옆에서 퍼레이드를 지켜 본 약 100,000 명이 뜨거운 박수와 환호성을 터뜨렸다. 샬롯 한인회에서 회장 전승현 부부, 재무부장 이상수 부부 그리고 여성 봉사 부장님 5 분이 퍼레이드에 참석했는데 퍼레이드 도중에 전승현 회장이 "

샬롯 한인장로교회 담임: 나성균 목사 1. 담임목사 모친상 (11/11) 담임목사의 모친 되시는 유춘신 권사가 11월 11일 밤 (현지 한국시간 11월 12일 새벽) 하나님의 부르심을 받았다. 갑작스런 부르심을 받았기에 상주로서 급히 한국을 방문하는 일이 결코 쉽지 않았으나 동역자들 특히 이현석 목사의 즉각적인 수고로 비행기표를 구입하여 이튿날 새벽 일찍부터 출발하여 현지 한국에 13일 주일 밤에 도착하여 입관 위로 , 이튿날 발인 하관 예배를 잘 마치고 묘소를 돌아보는 삼오예배까지 잘 마치고 귀국하였다. 한국을 떠난지 8년이 되었는데도 오후예배를 마친 옛교우 성복중앙 교회 교우들이 큰 버스로 내려와 문상하고 위로하므로 큰 위로를 받았다. 그외에도 갑작스런 연락을 받았음에도 불구하고 여러 친구 친지들 특히 친구 목사들이 먼길을 내려와 위로하고, 조화를 보내주는 등 변함없는 사랑을 주어 감격하였다. 한편 귀국후 지난주일 27일 오후에는 동역자 이현석 목사의 설교로 추도예배를 드리었다. 전기현 장로의 사회, 전태현 장로의 기도, 이영기 학장의 조가, 정사라 집사의 반주로 예배를 드리고 이어 도쿄 부페식당에서 전기현 장로가 베푼 위로연에 참석한

교우들과 이웃 목사 가족들이 담임 목사부부를 쉬지 않고 격려하였다. 깊고 깊은 사랑을 계속 받은 담임목사는 어머님을 잃은 슬픔 속에서도 한없는 하나님의 사랑과 위로와 소망을 더욱 체험케 되었다. 담임목사는 이번 경험을 통하여 이곳 샬롯과 노쓰 사우쓰 케롤라이나 교포들이 갑작스러운 일을 당할 때 한시라도 빨리 한국에 나갈 수 있도록 샬롯에서 직항으로 인천에 나가는 길이 모색되어야 함을 절실히 느끼고 기도하게 되었다. 2. 샬롯지역 무료 건강 검진 및 치료 를 위한

의료 봉사(12/3-11)

샬롯장로교회는 창립 40주년 기념 행사를 계속하는 중 그동안 선교와

전도 차원에서 무료 진료를 실시하여 왔던 LA의 김인철 목사 의료 봉사팀을 초청하여 12월 3일 오전 10시 부터 오후 5시 까지 무료 검진 및 간단한 치료를 위하여 봉사하게 되었다. 아직도 의료 혜택을 쉽게 접하지 못하는 교우들과 이웃에 큰 위로와 좋은 치료 기회가 되기를 바란다. 좀더 자세한 내용은 광고를 참고하기 바란다. 3.임직식




창립 40 주년 기념 임직식을 위하여 장로후보로 예상되는 교우들을 담임목사와 당회서기 전기현 장로가 한 사람씩 진지하게 면담하였다. 약 40-50 분씩을 할애하여 면담한 결과 새로운 각오와 결단으로 직분을 맡을 각오를 듣게 되었고 무엇보다 가장 위대한 임직자가 되기 위해 모범을 보이도록 진지한 권면을 받게 되었다. 담임목사와 서기 장로는 이 결과를 당회에 보고하여 최종 결정을 내릴 예정이다. 4 . 담임 목사 연합행사를 위한 봉사(11/11,11/28,12/1) 샬롯지역의 자랑스런 선교단체 중 하나인 JAARS 센터의 최고 지도자인 WOODY MCLENDON 목사는 담임 목사를 초청하여 해마다 한번씩 설립자인 CAMERUN THAUNSAND의 MEXICO 선교의 불가능을 기도로 극복한 날을 기념하여 세계를 품는 기도대성회를 개최하는 중 한국에 대한 선교 기도상황 쉐어와 기도제목을 쉐어를 요청하였는데, 미국 선교사님들과 한국전쟁때 보내준 사랑과 희생으로 이승만 대통령을 비롯한 기독교 독립 및 건국 지도자들이 양성 봉사케 되고 그들과 함께 한국이 오늘날 기독교의 번창을 이루었고, 세계 10여위 경제 대국이 되었을 뿐만 아니라 세계에서 두번째로 선교사를 보내는 국가가 되었음을 간증하며 감사하고, 앞으로 얼마든지 있을 수 있는 영적 게으름과 영적 타락을 위해 기도해 달라고 부탁하였다. 11월 28일 샬롯 제일 교회에서 있었던 제 14회 샬롯 교회 협의회 정기총회에서 차기 회장 공천 위원으로 화합과 추천 원활을 위하여 후보 가능자와 상처받은 회원들을 화합케 격려하고 다시금 화합하여 힘있는 교협을 이루는데 역할을 감당하여 하나님께 영광을 돌리었다. 12월 1일 에 있을 PCA 한인 동남부 임시노회에서 개회 설교를 하고 노회와 회원의 사임 , 부임을 적극 도와 노회가 발전하도록 힘을 기울였다.

KIMNET(세계선교동역네트웍: 대표회장 호성기 목사) “제 9차 열방을 향한 선교전략과 기도성회”가 “북미주 한인교회의 열방을 향한 선교적 역할”이란 주제로 10월 19일(수)~21일(금) 까지 뉴욕 목양장로교회( 송병기 목사 담임)에서 열렸다. 북미주 여러 선교단체와 교회 그리고 선교사들이 참가하여 주제별 발제와 응답, 선교도전, 네트워크별 발표, 패널토의 등을 통하여 디아스포라, 차세대, 이슬람, 전문인, 다민족 등 선교 현황과 전략을 심도 있게 다루고 기도하는 시간을 가졌다. 첫날인 19일(수) 저녁에는 이성민 선교사(캄보디아)의 선교지 사역보고와 호성기 목사( 필라안디옥 교회 담임)의 설교로 개회 예배가 시작 되었다.

둘째 날인 20일(목) 오전에는 ‘ 준비된 디아스포라 사명자들’란 주제로 김경식 목사(세인트루이스 제일장로 교회 담임)와 조에스라 박사(UBF)가, ‘한인교회의 다민족 선교전략’이란 주제로 호성기 목사(필라안디옥 교회 담임)와 이상진 장로( 타코마중앙장로교회)의 발제와 응답이 이어졌다. 이어서 KIMNET 총회와 이사회로 조직과 예산 및 사역 인준 등 업무를 처리했다. 오후에는 네트웍별 발표와 각 선교단체 사역보고가 이어지고, 저녁에는 이아브라함 선교사( 독일)의 사역 보고와 류응렬 목사 (워싱톤 중앙장로교회 담임)의 말씀 선포와 기도로 마쳤다.

청교도 영성 회복’이란 주제로 박희민 목사(Life Mission 대표) 와 이규섭 목사 (뉴욕 퀸즈한인교회 담임)가, ‘ 북미주 한인교회 시대적 사명’ 이란 주제로 송상철 목사( 아틀란타 새한장로교 회 담임)와 ‘북미주 원주임 선교전략’ 이란 주제로 김동승 선교사(북미주 원주민선교회 대표)가, ‘이방 땅에서 선교적 전략’이란 주제로 이은무 목사 (Georgia Christian University) 와 강성일 선교사(브라질)가 발표 하였다. 오후에는 ‘차세대 디아스포라 동원 전략’이란 주제로 정민철 목사 (뉴하트선교 교회)와 김호성 목사 (국제도시선교회 대표)가 ‘KIMNET 어제와 오늘, 미래전망’이란 주제로 최일식 목사(KIMNET 상임대표)와

‘난민 사역을 통한 선교전략’ 이란 주제로 이교회 선교사(T 국) 가 발표하고 이어 패널 토의가 이어졌다, 저녁에는 전재덕 선교사(쿠바)의 사역보고와 김대영 목사(워싱톤 휄로십교회 담임)의 말씀 선포와 기도로 모두 마쳤다. 특히 이번 컨퍼런스는 북미주 한인교회가 감당 할 세계선교의 전문분야별 발표와 토의을 통하여 폭넓고 깊이가 있었고, 그 어느 때 보다도 내용이 있는 은혜가 넘치는 컨퍼런스였으며, 특히 이민 한인교회가 고민하고 있는 차세대에 대하여 심도 있게 다루어져 다시 한번 새롭게 도전을 주는 계기가 되었다.

셋째 날인 21일(금) 오전에는 ‘

지금 세계는 보이지 않는 치열한 영적전쟁을 벌이고 있습니다. 동성결혼 합법화와 성적타락, 모슬렘과 세속화와 악한 영들이 기독교를 공격하고 무섭게 달려들고 있습니다. 이제는 청교도 신앙으로 시작한 미국조차 기독교가 핍박을 받는 시대가 되었습니다. 그뿐 아니라 미대선으로 인한 선거휴유증으로 미국은 인종간 세대간 그리고 이념간에 심각한 분열과 갈등을 격고 있습니다. 우리의 조국 대한민국도 최순실 국정개입으로 촉발된 정국혼란으로 박근혜대통령 하야 촛불데모가 연일 계속되고 있고 분열과 갈등으로 인하여 한치 앞을 내다 볼 수 없는 풍전등화의 위기에 처해했습니다. 폭풍을 만난 대한민국호는 방향을 잃은 채 좌초 위기에 처해 있습니다. 한국교회는 더 성장을 멈추고 세상을 빛과 소금의 사명을 감당하지 못하고 힘을 잃어가고 있습니다.

December 2016 (21) 전세계에 흩어져 하나님의 나라와 복음을 위하여 최전방에서 영적전투를 벌이는 선교사들도 선교지원 부족과 영적탈진등으로 인하여 선교를 감당하기 어려운 처지에 있습니다. 지금은 자다가도 깰때입니다. 정신을 차리고 기도할 때입니다. 기도의 불을 붙이고 성령의 불길이 일어나도록 기도해야 합니다. 미스바에서 대각성과 회개가 일어났듯이 하나님께 부르짖고 하나님의 얼굴을 구하며 겸손히 기도할 때 하늘의 하나님이 우리의 기도를 들으시고 들으시사 이 땅을 고쳐 주실 것입니다. 함께 모여서 나라와 민족을 품고 하나님의 도우심을 간구할 때에 우리는 영적싸움에서 승리하게 될 줄을 믿습니다. 2017년 5월22(월) ~24(수) 3일간 태국방콕에서 세계를 품고 기도하기를 원합니다. 특별히 세기모는 전세계에 선교사님과 목회자 중보기도자 뿐 아니라 MK 와 차세대 영적지도자들도 함께 모여서 기도하기를 원합니다. 함께 기도의 불씨가 되어 주세요. 세기모 코디 박형우 목사 올림

러시아 모스크바 선교 김 바 울 목사 저희 교회가 러시아에서 복음의 씨앗을 뿌린지 어언 25주년이 지났습니다. 이번 11월6일에는 저희교회 설립 25주년 예배를 큰 은혜속에 잘 드릴 수 있었고 또 새교회 건축도 시작할 수 있게 되었습니다.

교회건축소식 그동안 교회 자체 건물이 없어서 많은 어려움이 있었지만 하나님께서 고려인 니꼴라이 목사님을 만나게 해 주셔서 앞으로 그가 짖다가 중단하고 있는 교회를 저와 함께 힘을 합쳐서 건축을 완성하게 되면 니콜라이 목사가 저희 교회의 후임 목사가 되고 저는 좀더 자유스럽게 전 러시아를 순회하며 선교할 수 있게 되겠습니다. 러시아 정부는 개신교의 전도를

저희 교회는 이미 많은 목사들을 배출했기 때문에 그들이 여러 지방에 흩어져서 많은 교회를 세우고 자기들이 직접 선교하고 있으며 초기의 러시아 천사합창단원 10대, 20대 소녀들이 이제 30대 40대 중년 부인들이 되어서 이제 찬양대에서 직접 활동을 하지 못하지만 그들이 각자의 가정에서 또한 자기들의 압박하려는 목적으로 개신교 선교사들의 비자 발급을 제한하여 1년에 180일만 러시아에 체류할 수 있도록 허락하고 종교비자 없이 전도하거나 설교하면 $20,000 정도의 벌금을 부과하는 법을 제정하였습니다. 직장에서 개인적인 선교활동을 하고 있으니 복음은 중단 없이 계속 전파되고 있습니다. 이제는 그들의 자녀들이 또 10 대 소녀들이 되어가고 있으니

그러나 그리스도의 복음이 사탄의 어떠한 방해에도 매임 받지 않을 것이며 더 적극적으로 복음사업을

펼쳐 나갈 각오를 갖고 있습니다. 러시아 천사합창단 제 2세들의 찬양대가 설립 될 날이 가까와 오고
