Art • Poetry • Music, it’s all in the name: it’s a singular spectacular that celebrates the visual, the lyrical, and the musical. Opera Carolina’s annual benefit concert, Art • Poetry • Music (APM) entered its fifth season on October 21, 2017 and celebrated world culture through its unique mix of art forms at the Holton Theater as it has in the previous four years. The fifth season of APM was a collaboration between Opera Carolina, Chun University, and the Asian Herald that also included the presentations of the Asian Herald Award and Jian Dong Award. The APM concert is the brainchild of Charlotte’s Dr. Ki-Hyun Chun. A longtime advocate and Board Member of Opera Carolina, Dr. Chun approached Maestro James Meena, Opera Carolina’s General Director and Principal Conductor, with an idea to tap into Charlotte's growing Asian community by bringing together different Asian talents to create a type of concert that would be new to Charlotte. After a great deal of careful thought and discussion to expanding the company's outreach, the APM benefit concert was born. The inaugural APM coincided with the Grand Opening of the Knight Theater on September 12, 2013. The program was featured a totally new showcase of performances of grand opera selections by nine world-famous opera singers and traditional Korean and Chinese songs. Live-feed projected interpretive calligraphy, a first for Charlotte, by Chinese master calligrapher Dr. Hong Zhao was also featured. This year’s APM concert was held at the Holton Theater and included performances by several internationally celebrated opera singers, the Chun University Community Choir, as well as Chinese poetry readings by students of one of Charlotte’s Chinese immersion programs. Dr. Gregory Thompson, praised by The New York Times for his ability to “make a melodic line sing and inflect it with delicate rubato effects” played the piano accompaniment for several pieces for the evening. Also featured were performances by the Chun University Asian Choir conducted by Professor Ki-Hoon Cha, and

예술, 시, 음악의 향연

accompanied by Haley Kim on piano, Tanja Bechtler on violin, and Elise Tucker on the cello. The evening was opened by FrenchCanadian soprano Magali Simard-Galdés with “Salut à la France” from Gaetano Donizetti’s La Fille du Regiment. Ms. Galdes is a three-time winner of the Canadian Music Competition in voice, and a regional finalist of the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions. She also performed the part of Roxanne in David Dichiera’s CYRANO at Opera Carolina this past November. Following a greeting and a brief history of APM from Maestro James Meena, lyric soprano Yunah Lee performed the Korean Folk Song “Weaving Song.” Yunah Lee is familiar to Charlotteans from her spell-binding leading role performances in Giacomo Puccini’s Madama Butterfly as Madame Butterfly and Mozart’s The Magic Flute as Princess Pamina in 2008 and 2010. The evening continued with a steady stream of captivating performances. American Mezzo-Soprano Maariana Vikse performed “O Don Fatale” from Giuseppe Verde’s La Forza del Destino. Ms. Vikse also performed in CYRANO as Duenna. Tenor Brian Arreola, described as a “robust Italian tenor” by the Washington Post, sang “I Love You, China” in Mandarin Chinese. BassBaritone Carl DuPont who is a vocalist equally engaged in teaching, performing, and research sang “Aprite un po quell’occhi” from Le nozze di Figaro. He is in CYRANO as a Marquis de Brisaille. Tenor Yi Li, who is known as a formidable talent and a rising star in the opera world, sang “Pourquoi me Revellier” from Werther. Tenor Yi Li is quickly gaining attention in the lyric tenor repertoire and his schedule for the performance is endless at present. He also performed “O fond du Temple saint” from the Pearl Fishers in duet with Carl DuPont. The pair sang an exceptional performance in magnificent harmony. Poetry readings by gifted students included “Mo li hua,” a traditional folk song, read by Ms. Kaylee Schwanke, as well as “Swan Geese” read by Jordana Morinos and “When You Are Old” by Elise Tucker. The poetry, read in their

original Mandarin Chinese, showcased the hard work these high school students have put into learning a foreign tongue. After the intermission, Dr. Ki-Hyun Chun, Publisher of The Asian Herald and President of Chun University, presented the “Asian Herald Award” to William Cliffton Robinson, in recognition of his support for Charlotte’s Asian American Community. In addition, the 10th Annual Jian Dong Award was presented to Dr. John Chen. The Jian Dong Award is for recognition for leadership and outstanding contribution to the Asian American Community presented by the Asian Herald. It is tradition that Jian Dong Award is presented by Late Mr. Jian Dong’s son Dr. Ankang Dong but he was in China, and Richard Yang who is Chairman of Charlotte Chinese Chamber of Commerce presented the Award to Dr. John Chen. The awards were followed by a performance by Soprano Dr. Ji Eun Park, who was born and grew up in Seoul, South Korea, and has received several accolades for her opera performances. She performed three Korean Classic songs, “Ballad of the birds, Daffodil, and New Ariang. The Chun University Community Choir is a newly formed group made up of fifty-six members, but they performed three songs in two languages with perfect unity. Their set started with “Swan Geese” in Mandarin Chinese, “With Love” in Korean, and “The Song of the Yangzi River” in Mandarin Chinese. Conductor Professor Cha teaches voice pedagogy at Chun University and his leadership and training showed through the vocal techniques and crystalline tones of the choir. The program closed with a quartet performance from Giuseppe Verdi’s Rigoletto by Ms. Galdes, Ms. Vikse, Mr. Arreola, and Mr. DuPont. Their marvelous final performance punctuated an unforgettable night that stayed on with audience members. Many could be heard leaving the Holton Theater remarking on how each APM concert is better than the last one. If you missed this year’s event, you need only wait for next year’s event to see for yourself. ■ By Sunny Chun

TUITION FREE CHINESE IMMERSION CHARTER SCHOOL COMING TO QUEEN CITY CHARLOTTE—Six-year-old Arabella Kushner has been praised by the Chinese President as “a little star” after President Donald Trump showed off her video singing and reciting poems in Chinese during his recent visit to China. Arabella is one prime example

not hard to understand why Chinese has become so popular. China has become the second largest economy in the world. It is the destination of more than $113 billion of U.S. exports. As the world becomes more interconnected by technology, the

in the new trend of learning Chinese in prominent families around the world, such as those of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, Princess Elisabeth in Belgium and Princess Catharina Amalia in Dutch. Coming to Queen City in fall 2018, East Voyager Academy will be the first whole-school Chinese immersion charter school for families enthusiastic about graduating their children with not just English-Chinese proficiency but also strong academics and intercultural competence. EVA believes that learning a second language like Chinese should not be the luxury of the privilege few and strives to make this learning opportunity available to all Charlotte children. Starting with a lonely one in 1981, there are 247 Chinese immersion programs in the U.S. as of November 2017, according to the Mandarin Immersion Parents Council. There have been double-digit increases in numbers every year since 2006. From 2011 to 2015, the growth of Chinese immersion programs counted for 83% of the total growth of all language immersion programs in the U.S. It is

demand for an English-Chinse bilingual work force will also increase. Parents in the immersion program community in Queen City have been talking about a “new kid on the block”—East Voyager Academy. At the school fairs hosted by the Charlotte Observer on November 9 and 14, quite a few parents came to EVA’s booth. Many parents inquiring about the school program are bilingual or multilingual. One parent also shared his experience of taking Chinese in high school. Most parents are aware of the benefits of a language immersion program and are very excited about the new opportunity in Charlotte. A consultant from Charlotte School

Search also concurred with the increasing inquiries and interests in language immersion programs among parents selecting education choices for their children. On December 11, East Voyager Academy also hosted an information session at the school site, 7429 Tuckaseegee Road, Charlotte, NC 28214. Open enrollment for pre-K to 4th grade in fall 2018 is underway until January 31, 2018. More information is

available at EVA requires no prior knowledge of Chinese for children to enter the program. Parents do not need to have any background in Chinese to monitor their children’s academic progress. The program in general uses the same core curriculum and English textbooks for core subjects as all North Carolina public schools do. However, EVA’s unique whole-school Chinese immersion model and departmentalized instruction will make effective

acquisition of content studies and language skills occur at the same time. A focus on strong academics is one of EVA’s core missions. EVA also aims to graduate students to be competent in intercultural communication and proficient in both English and Chinese. The school recently launched a “Look Who is Learning Chinese” campaign on their Facebook page. “Families in Queen City will soon join the famous Chinese learners to show off not just their kids’ Chinese proficiency but also academic achievements and appreciation of diverse cultures.” said Dr. Dandan Liu, Vice Chair of the Founding Board of Trustees at EVA.

Mission The mission of East Voyager Academy is to graduate its students with English-Chinese bilingual proficiency, strong academics, and intercultural competence. Our Purpose East Voyager Academy recognizes the value of early language immersion. We firmly believe that allowing children the opportunity to learn a second language while they are young not only produces stronger students academically, but also teaches them the value of their global citizenship. Sharing cultures throughout the education process assists students in understanding and respecting the diverse peoples throughout the world.

Open Enrollment Deadline for Pre-K to 4th Grade: January 31, 2018

Tuition-Free Chinese Immersion Charter School East Voyager Academy is the first whole-school Chinese immersion program in North Carolina. A Dual Language Immersion education provides: Strong Academics v English and Chinese Proficiency v Intercultural Competence

TASTE OF THE WORLD, A Foodie's Dream Tour The Taste of the World, one of the most popular restaurant foodie tours in Charlotte, being sold out in a matter of days,had its 15th event on October 4th, 2017. It started with a Wine Reception at the Charlotte Museum of History, and also ended there with a Dessert and Coffee Reception after the dinner tour to three different international restaurants. More than 250 diners from all over Charlotte and environs were taken on the tour in 17 buses,as compared to the first TOTW, on April 5, 2005, with only half the number of diners in half the number of buses. How did this much-acclaimed event to showcase the international cuisine and diversity in Charlotte East come about? In late 2004, Nancy Plummer, President of Plummergraphics, Inc. & an active member of the East Charlotte Chamber of Commerce, went to the Mayors International Cabinet, looking for some people to help organize an event that would revitalize the "International District' of Charlotte,(officially the designated area from Plaza Midwood, along Central Avenue, up to Albemarle Road). There was a perception then that it was "dangerous" to go to East Charlotte, in the wake of the much-publicized shootings & other incidents. This contributed to a stagnant growth of business in Charlotte East, especially the many international restaurants run by immigrant families offering authentic cuisine from their countries of origin. At the meeting, she met Dr. Nini Bautista, President ,then Chairman of the Carolinas Asian American Chamber of Commerce/CAACC & Past President, Filipino American Community of the Carolinas/ FACC, who was easily persuaded to help in a project that will help immigrants. Meetings were held at Dr. Chun's Asian Library,which included members of the CAACC, VP Dr.John Chen, Charlotte Chamber of Commerce, Cherise Walker, Charlotte East CC Nancy Plummer, Judson Gee, members of Eastland Area Strategic Team/ E.A.S.T. Louise Barden Louise Woods, Karen Henning, also Connie Knight, Communications

Director of Clariant,one of the Founding Corporate Sponsors,Nathan Feldman of Compass,representing the Latino community; the Head of the Charlotte Economic Development Board, Jared Marvin of Johnston YWCA, & many others. Several formats for the project involving the restaurants were discussed with some of the

offering them an amount for their participation.For those reluctant to sign the agreement, Dr.Nini thought of just reserving the place for a certain time,and ordering from the menu, thus making TOTW more inclusive & diverse. Participating restaurants were gifted with a framed TOTW Certificate of Appreciation, which they proudly displayed with

organizers of other Food Scene Events for Charity. Meanwhile, Nancy & Dr.Nini went on a foray of the restaurants,some recommended by Dr.Tom Hanchett, Historian of the Museum of the New South. They often ate lunch thereat to taste the different cuisine offered, then survey the premises, and talk with the owners/managers about the project. Naturally, the restaurateurs were often wary of the two ladies, since their usual clientele was limited to only their own countrymen. Dr.Nini was able to convince the Latino restaurants( Mexican, Peruvian,Dominican, Salvadorian, etc.) by speaking Spanish to the owners who spoke little English. After many survey trips in the International District, the feisty duo was able to gather a list of potential places which met their strict criteria: 1) Has an "A" rating from the Health Dept. 2) Has enough seating capacity for at least 25 people 3) Has various signature dishes, authentic & tasty 4) Has enough wait staff to handle groups of 25 diners 5)Can offer some ethnic music/dance entertainment 6) Are willing to sign a Memo of Agreement,( English & Spanish versions) firming up the terms and conditions of the event,

their "A" rating from the Health Dept,. as an additional badge of "excellence". Nancy & Dr.Nini presented the proposal for a Restaurant Crawl / Restaurant Preview Event, and the" Taste of the World" was born! Thursday was chosen as the day most restaurants are not that busy and can accommodate the TOTW diners. Groups of 25 diners are to be bused to five different international restaurants, where they will be met by the owner/manager, who will explain the cuisine/country. Diners sample the signature dishes & move on to the next restaurant. A Gourmet Guide,suggested by Dr.Nini armed with a script by Connie & Louise on each of buses, informs them of the interesting places along the route. A Restaurant Coordinator at each place alerts the restaurant about the ETA of each group so they can freshen & replenish the tables in time. Opening Reception was at the

Upstairs Banquet Room Private Dining


10719 Kettering Dr. Charlotte, NC 28226

Charlotte Museum of History, with complimentary drinks. The diners then hopped on the bus & went to five of the 15 restaurants which originally signed up. Sponsors also donated items for the goody bag given to all diners which proved handy as they were given "to go" boxes at the last two restaurants where they couldn't eat anymore in spite of the admonition to "pace themselves" as there were 5 places to go to. But nobody listened ! Later, a Closing Reception was added at the van Landingham Estate, with Gourmet Coffee and exquisite desserts, cum some entertainment & a grand raffle. At the first TOTW, then Mayor McCrory was seen enjoying himself at several restaurants, and even trying to "salsa" at the Dominican restaurant, which offered salsa lessons to the diners !.Many prominent members of the community were likewise photographed at the TOTW events. like County Commissioner then Mayor Jennifer Roberts, Mayor Patsy Kinsey who continues to volunteer as a Guide in her home grounds. Cost to each diner for the dinner samplings at 5 restaurants, was only $25 ( now it is $45), thanks to the corporate sponsors like Clariant, Charlotte Economic & Development Office, which paid for the rented buses, Dr. Ki-Hyun & Dr. Sunny Chun, Merchandise Mart, Judson Gee Financial Advisers, First Citrizens Bank, Que Pasa, Glimcher LLP, Plummer Graphics,for all printing needs & publicity materials, Charlotte Chamber, CAACC, etc. Some of the buses were "donated" by friends of Nancy; who also did most of the soliciting of sponsors. Most of the international volunteers were recruited & trained by Dr.Nini/Louise Barden. From among the CAACC members & other organizations she was affiliated with like the Charlotte International Cabinet, United Way, Crossroad Charlotte, etc. The 150 tickets on line(C/O Barbara Drye and Charlotte Chamber website,c/o Cherise) were sold out within a week, with 60 people on the waiting list.

The Charlotte International Cabinet continues to support TOTW, in line with its mission for the globalization & economic development of our Queen City. The original restaurants of

Journalist. Publications such as the Charlotte Observer, Business Journal, Asian Herald, Que Pasa,Creative Loafing, etc. carried stories about this unique event in Charlotte East, "to help brand the international corridor as a trendy & fun place to be in, with all the miles of flavor from the ethnic international restaurants". Nancy & Dr.Nini went on the radio & TV to promote the event, thru the efforts of Connie. Photographer Nancy Pierce, helped enhance the media blitz with her insightful photographs, emblazoning the TOTW logo designed by Heather Speet of deZinZ, Inc.. The inaugural TOTW was a resounding success, and soon right after, the TOTW2 was being planned for the fall on August 11,2005, with more diners in more buses, and more restaurants. Changes were incorporated following the survey designed by Christi Floyd of the Charlotte EconDev Office.She also designed Manual of Operations for the TOTW Planning Committee and volunteers. In 2011, Crossroad Charlotte was the Presenting Sponsor of TOTW for the social experiment on the" Exchange of Tastes", for people and organizations to act, connect, & create a positive

A Festival For Unity Even all the rain which Typhoon Maria dumped in its path, failed to discourage the determined group of culturally diverse individuals, who wanted to celebrate & feel the togetherness in the global city of Charlotte at a UNITY FESTIVAL on Saturday, October 4,2017 from 11 to 3 pm, at the historic Gandhi Memorial Park on Trade & Alexander. It was organized by the dynamic husband & wife team, James & Mae Armstead, Co-Chairs of Charlotte Asian Heritage Association, under the aegis of the Carolinas Asian American Chamber of Commerce, and sponsored by Dr. Ki-Hyun & Dr. Sunny Chun. Said the Armsteads: " The underlying purpose of the festival is to promote the Unity, Peace, Love among the different communities in Charlotte. It is only through Love that we will have peace in the world. It is sad that in this nation, considered as one of the most powerful in the world, we continue to grieve from the violence of hate.Hence we need the constant reminder that we are all brothers and sisters, and that we have been commanded to love one another, as God has loved us." The festival was inspired by the respected world leader, Mohandas"Mahatma" Gandhi, who taught the world the power of non-violence (ahimsa) and the principle of non-violence ( Satyagraha). This includes among other principles, the following 1) We are called to celebrate both our differences & our fundamental unity with others. 2) We reaffirm our unity with others when we transform "us' versus "them" way of thinking & doing 3) Our oneness calls us to want and to work for the well being of all It will be recalled that the first Gandhi Unity Fall Festival was held at the unveiling of his 8 ft. bronze statue on October 5, 2008, in celebration of his birthday and of Asian culture.The first CAHA President,Garry Bhojwani, his wife Bina and his family donated the statue commissioned in India, as a gift to the Mecklenburg County. The surrounding structures & park were built with the support

by Dr. Nini RB Bautista

of the Indian & Asian communities. CAACC President Nimish Bhatt, one of the early advocates of the Gandhi project, took over the Festival in 2011, Then Ms Phin Xaypangna now, Equity & Inclusion Manager, Mecklenburg Govt, & Co-Chair of the Asian Film Festival, continued the tradition in 2014, and added on the Essay Contest, "I am Asian", to engage the young Asian Americans. This year, James, Owner/Broker/ Agent of JMAT Realty, and Mae, Parish Consultant, Saint Benedict & Tan Books, wanted the Festival to be more inclusive and as diverse as possible, thus expanded the multicultural celebration into one big Unity Festival for all. At the Opening Ceremony, after the National Anthem by Abbie Armstead, Mayor Jennifer Roberts,

beautifully embroidered silk Qi Pao Chinese costumes. The Nigerian ladies of the IMO Women's Association enthusiastically did their Nigerian dance, which if set to pop music could have been mistaken for any modern dance. Doreen Reynolds with her two daughters & Florami Lee of the Philippine Cultural Group danced a beloved folk dance from one of the islands.Jane Zhao and the Carolina Women's Association joined the China Wind Cheongsam Club to do a dance, showing off their beautiful cheongsams.Justine Estanislao & Justin Sides sang "Count on Me" by their idol, Bruno Mars. Xiaosong He's cute Little Lotus girls were so delightful in their Lantern Dance.& red costumes, while their elder sisters were masterfully graceful in the Torch Dance from

resplendent in a royal blue Indian dress, led the group of Indian elders & others, in laying the ceremonial garland of flowers on Gandhi. The mayor then presented each senior, to their surprise, with a pin of Charlotte, the Queen City, established in 1768. All the attendees then formed a giant circle of love, joined hands and sang the unity song of Michael Jackson, "We are the World". It set the mood for the ensuing array of glittering performances from different groups. Curtain raiser was the Pinoy Noir Band of Dr.Ed Tautjo, Dr. Stella Lawsin, Marissa Helbing & Glen Espiritu. Angela Cook & the Aloha Island Girls did several lilting hula numbers, in their fetching outfits. The Charlotte Phoenix Fashion Show Team paraded in their

the Fire Festival of Yi Ethanic. Pavani Gingrich introduced the extremely well-trained dancers of her mom, Dr. Maha Gingrich, who did two classical Indian dances in their elegant silk costumes & gold jewelry. At this point, Aaron Bryant, aka DJ Tut, had to stop the music as it was raining cats and dogs, and his $25,000 equipment was in danger of being flooded and ruined. Nevertheless, seven-year-old Christian Antonio, winner of the 2017 Asian Music & Dance Fest, braved the rain, and sang three songs, accompanying himself on his ukelele ( self-taught) & charmed the audience. What a trooper! Not to be outdone, the Indian Little Pearls did their enchanting dance, thanks to technology - two iPhones on Bluetooth playing the

tune at the stage area, and another one in the audience, and the little ones never skipped a single beat! It would have been a real shame if they did not perform, after all their hard work practicing for weeks before! We missed the performances of Sherman Tse & his "Yesterday" by the Beatles, and his glamorous wife Legmis Diaz of Havana, Cuba, with her song, "Quimbara"by Celia Cruz, also Ashley Perez'es "Bridges" by Faith Harmony, but they all promised to perform at the 3rd Asian Music & Dance Fest at the Asian Festival on May 19,2018. Ditto for Karl Pagilagan, who brought his drums all the way from Rockhill to play Ride by Twenty-One and I Run by A Flock of Seagulls, though Mom Raquel who won one of the many, many raffle prizes said that it was well worth it! Everybody won a prize, some were lucky enough to get multiple prizes, thanks to the generous sponsors and donors. Fortunately, there were some food samplings from Grand Asia Market, Mei Fun Restaurant, Nimish B., Jessica Esguerra, that the promised Food Truck which was to serve lunch, was not missed at all. Next time, watch out for the Martial Arts Form of Choong JungShashank Dodamani, and Lara Wang's Songs of Fishermen's Boats at Dusk.

Some may think it is tough to feel Christmas in Charlotte, especially for people who come from colder regions in America. Even with all the beautiful

Christmas trees, Christmas decorations, and lights on churches and homes throughout the city, the warm weather is not exactly what one thinks of when getting into the Christmas spirit. However, over the last few years, many people look forward to the annual Christmas Party at the Asian Library located at King's Drive and Baxter Street, which is hosted by Dr. Ki-Hyun Chun. The interior hotel lobby-like design of the library’s interior may be unexpected as it is also filled with thousands of books in various Asian languages.

小米粥的营养价值 好处一:小米最主要的功效——补脾胃 小米的功效,正如李时珍在《本草纲目》 所说:“治反胃热痢,补虚损,开肠胃”。 实际上,无论是反胃、热痢、虚损都与脾胃 功能欠佳有关,所以小米最主要的功效,就 是补脾胃。 小米为什么能补脾胃。我们通常说甘味入 脾,黄色入脾,从五色上来讲,小米是黄色 的,从味觉上来讲,小米味甘而咸,因此中 医说小米能“和胃温中”。北方妇女生小 孩,坐月子,是不吃荤的,主要是吃小米 粥,主要就是因为这个原因。 好处二:五谷当中小米的补肾功效最强 说到小米补虚损的功效,不仅仅体现补脾 胃上面,还体现在补肾功效上,所谓“人食 五谷而化精”,就是说,五谷都具有养精 气,补肾气的作用,但五谷当中,数小米的 补肾功效最强。 明代名医李时珍就曾经说过:粟(小米) 之味咸淡,气寒下渗,肾之谷也。就是说, 小米性质偏寒,五味上是略带点咸味的,大 家都知道,咸味入肾,所以小米还具有益肾 气、补元气的功效,因此李时珍称它为肾之 谷。 好处三:小米汤可以养心安神 除了之外,《本草纲目》还说,喝小米汤 “可增强小肠功能,有养心安神之效”。因 此小米还困扰作为镇静安眠的食疗保健品来 食用,对于那些因胃肠不好导致的失眠,其 疗效非安眠药可比。 很多中医生就常让患者用小米粥来代替安 眠片。所以有的老人说了,早上一碗玉米粥 --精神焕发,晚上一碗小米粥--呼呼大睡。

为“小米之王”。是我国四大名米之一。 沁州黄小米在 1919 年参加印度国际博览 会便饮誉海外。在国内连续被评为一级小 米,获“全国最佳小米”称号。小米“沁州 黄”为什么叫“吴阁老”呢?这里还有一段 传说:相传在明代时,沁州檀山一带有座古 庙,庙里住着几位和尚,生活清苦,免不了 忍饥挨饿,他们看见庙周围的土地荒芜,就 开垦出来,种上了糙谷。经过几年的精心栽 培驯化,糙谷发生了神奇的变化。这种谷 子,色泽蜡黄,颗粒圆润,状如珍珠,晶莹 明亮。煮成饭后松软可口,味道清香,越嚼 越香,遂起名为“爬山糙”。 清代康熙年间,保和殿大学士吴 ,沁 州人士,人称“吴阁老”。在衣锦还乡时, 听说“爬山糙”品质极佳,状似金珠,熬稀 饭锅边不挂米粒,蒸饭、切饭香甜味美。为 了证实传言,便亲自到檀山庙内品尝,方知 名不虚传。当时他嫌“爬山糙”名字不雅, 便称之为“沁州黄”。在还朝时还带了一些 小米献给康熙皇帝。康熙食后,大加赞赏。 这样“沁州黄”便成了年年向皇帝进贡的珍 品。因吴阁老使“沁州黄”名扬朝野,久 之,“吴阁老”也就成了“沁州黄”的代名 词。 沁州黄是一个特殊品种,与一般作物宜种 在肥沃土地不同。“沁州黄”只长在沁县次 沁州黄小米 芳香飘天下 村乡檀山、王朝、石料、钞沟、东庄等十多 产于山西省沁县(古称沁州)的一种小 个自然村,约 1333 公顷的土地上耕种,每 米。该米品质优良,独具特色,食之甜香松 公顷产量约 1500 公斤,总产量 37.5 万公 散,非常可口,由于具有高营养价值,被誉 斤。把“沁州黄”引种到外地种植时,第一

年尚有“沁州黄”的特色,第二年便会变 种。据化验分析,这一带属含碎料浆石的深 褐色粘性土壤,耕种时既不能施磷肥,又不 能施氮肥,否则就会减产。 沁州黄不但煮饭味美甜香,营养价值也高 于一般小米。当地百姓称其为“金珠子”, 并且有一句民谚:“金珠子,金珠王,金珠 换不来沁州黄。”经山西农科院谷子研究所 检验分析,“沁州黄”脂肪含量高达 4. 22%,比一般小米高 l%~ 2.5%;可溶性 糖类的含量为 1.6%,也非普通小米可 比;蛋白质、脂肪含量均高于一般大米、白 面;其粗纤维含量则低于其他粮食品种。据 分析,“沁州黄”得宜于独特的气候、土 质,沁县地处太行山深处,古语云:“万峰 环列,气候早寒”。也就是由于这特殊的地 理、气候,特别适宜于谷子的生长发育,因 此“沁州黄”才谷香味浓,植物脂肪、可溶 性糖类、粗纤维、蛋白质含量均高于普通小 米、大米等。《中国谷子品种资料目录》中 编入的 11000 多个谷物品种,经专家鉴定没 有一个品种能比得上“沁州黄”。 常食此米可治疗脾胃虚弱、反胃呕吐、腹 泻等,还具有养阴、壮阳、清热、利尿等功 能,对高血压、皮肤病、炎症均有一定的预 防和抑制作用。有肾病者直常食,脾胃虚者 宜久食。因此,“沁州黄”在广州出口商品 交易会上,在国际博览会上均受到许多外国 客商的好评。沁州黄小米为地理标志保护产 品。沁州黄小米为农产品地理标志产品。

샬롯 한인회 소식

The News of Korean Association

부 주지사 Dan Forest NC 아시안 지도자들을 랄리로 초정 만나다

NC 주 부지사 Dan Forest 는 2013년 1월부터 부 지사일을 해 오면서 아시아 지역에 큰 관심을 갖고 유대관계를 가지기 원했다. Mr. Forest 는 2013년 1 월에 부주지사가 될때 1993년에 부지사를 물러난 공화당 James Colman 후 첫 공화당 부 주지사였고 1897년에 시작된 부 주지사직에는 두번째 공화당 소속 부 주지사이다. 그는 샬롯UNC 에서 건축사를 전공했고 경제와 교육에 많은 열정을 쏟고 일하며 이에 관련된 여러단체에

Board 및 회장을 역임하고 있다. Mr. Forest 는 샬롯의 중국상공회 회장 Richard Yang 과 두터운 친분을 갖고 중국과 무역 및 여러분야에 관계를 갖고 있는데 Mr. Yang 을 통해서 NC 에 있는 아시아인 리더들을 초청해서 그들의 활동 보고 및 친교를 가졌고 앞으로 상호 유대관계를 갖고 협조를 당부했다. 샬롯에서는 전승현 한인회장을 초청했고 전기현 박사를 초청 그동안 아시안 도서관을 통해 지역사회 봉사한 것을 감사했다. Mr. Forest 는 샬롯시장과 국회의원 이였던 Sue Myrick의 아들이며 공화당 전

것으로 보고했다. 아시안 퍼레이드는 피스풀 드라곤의 라이언 댄스로 시작해서 그 뒤로 아시아 각 나라들이 그들의 전통의복을 입고 악시 댄스등을

마쳤다. CAACC 는 참석해서 협조한 모든분들께 심심한 고마움을 전하며 주류사회에 아시안의 긍지와 우수한

걸어가며 퍼레이드를 했는데 맨 마지막은 드라곤 보트 협회에서 대형 골든 드라곤 풍선을 날리며 퍼레이드를

문화를 알림을 자랑스럽게 생각하며 내년을 또 바라보며 감사 절기에 감사한 마음을 전했다.

주지사 Pat McCrory가 2016년 11월 8일에 낙선 되었으나 그는 부 주지사에 당선되어 현재 2차 임기로 일하고 있다.

한국풍악,태권도,무용이 퍼레이드 인기

추수감사절 아침은 화창한 날씨에 10 만명이 길거리에 늘어서서 관람하는 퍼레이드에 아주 적절한 날씨였다. 올 해로 70회 퍼레이드를 맞는 샬롯 추수 감사 퍼레이드지만 아시아 상공회 (CAACC) 아시안들이 참가한것은 올해가 두번째이다. 작년에는 준비할 시간과 여유가 없었으나 작년 경험을 통해 올해는 50여명의 한인들이 참석했다.태권도 이강유관장은 도장에서 학생들을 동원, 그린스보로, 락킹햄, 샬롯에서 한국 풍악을 동원해서 북, 장구, 징 등 퍼레이드에

활기를 더했고 길에 줄지어 늘어선 관람인들의 귀와 눈을 즐겁게 했다. 특히 샬롯 조원형 풍물패 공연은 예술이었다. 올해 이 퍼레이드에 참석한 아시안은 한국, 캄보디아, 중국, 인도, 인도네시아, 필리핀, 베트남, 몽 커뮤니티이며 약 150 여명이라고 CAACC 가 발표했다. TV 중계방송은 150만 세대의 뷰어가 있는데 이 방송을 통해서 미국 주류사회의 많은 사람들이 아시안들의 전통 의복, 문화에 많은 지식을 얻었을

"필리핀은 사시사철 더운나라입니다. 땀이 많이 나기 때문에 당연히 빨래도 많이 나옵니다. 세탁기만 있다면 빨래가 별문제가 되지 않겠지요 그러나 가난한 필리핀 사람은 세탁기를 살 여유가 없습니다. 전부 손빨래를 해야 합니다. 손빨래는 단순히 손빨래로 끝나지 않고 시간과 노동력을 빼앗아 갑니다. 손빨래에 시간과 노동력을 빼앗긴 가난한 가정은 다시 빈곤의 악순환만 계속됩니다. 그러나 빈곤의 악순환을 끊을 수 있는 방법이 있습니다. 만약 세탁기를 후원하여 공동빨래방을 만들어 준다면 우리는 한 마을을 변화시킬 수 있습니다. 귀하고 보람된 필리핀 빨래방선교를 위해 기도해 주세요! 그리고 월 10불만 후원해 주세요! 당신의 작은 손길이 세상을 변화시킬 수 있습니다. !!!

교회 소식 The Church’s News 샬롯 한인장로교회 담임: 나성균 목사 1. 가을 성례식과 추수감사절 예배 성료(11/19) 금년에도 변함없는 사랑으로, 하나님의 사람을 통하여 추수감사절 강단 장식을 아름답게 꾸밀 수 있어서 감사를 드리었다. 옥명숙 사모의 정성어린 준비와 모든 성도들의 손수 기른 농작물과 손수 준비한 농작물들로 풍성히 강단을 장식하여 의미와 기쁨을 더하였다. 각 가정에서 준비한

음식물들도 풍성하고 의미있으며 화기애애한 식단을 꾸미기에 부족함이 없었다. 두 가정 유아세례와 성찬식을 거행한 후 오후에는 남전도회 정기총회를 통하여 그동안 많은 수고를 하였던 전승현 장로가 회장의 임무를 잘 마치고 이어 부회장 진태형 장로가 새회장으로 선출되어 새롭게 남전도회를 이끌어 가게 되었다. 전도와 선교에 더욱 열정을 가할 것으로 기대가 된다. 한편 저녁에는 김경태 집사 댁에서 청년 대학부가 영커풀들과 함께 만찬을 즐기며 추수감사와 친교와 축하를 나누었고, 담임목사와 선임 장로 내외들을 초청하여 함께 자리함으로 1 세와 2세의 아름다운 교제도 나누게 되었다. 2. 추수 감사 퍼레이드 준비(11/22) 와 다민족 수요예배 준비와 진행

(11/22) 해마다 추수감사절 목요일에 거행되는 샤롯 시내 각민족 연합 퍼레이드를 준비하기 위하여 샬롯한인회(회장 : 전승현 장로)는 멀리 그린스보로에서 농악팀이 합류하여 열심히 준비하여 각민족 퍼레이드에 참석함으로 각민족의 연합과 한인회 소개 및 한인위상을 높이는 귀한 사역을 감당하였다. 한편 지난주 부터 Chun University 기독교 음악과의 교수와 학생으로 구성된 College Choir가 수요예배 찬양을 감당함으로 예배의 영성을 더하고 은혜를 더하며 명실상부한 다민족 복음화의 박차를 더 가하게 되었다. 수요예배때마다 베드로 전서를 강해하는 담임목사는 이날 벧전 4: 9-11을 본문으로 누구든지 말하려면 하나님의 말씀을 하는 것 같이 하고 봉사하려면 원망없이 기쁨으로 하나님이 공급하시는 힘으로 하라시는 말씀을 통하여 공적이나 사적을 막론하고 하나님의 말씀을 하는 것 같은 언어 생활로 창조적이고 사랑이 넘치는 하나님의 응답이 크게 임하는 말을 하자고 격려하였고, 늘 기쁘게 감사와 감격으로 겸손과 경건으로 봉사하며 손대접함으로 아브라함 같이 소돔과 고모라를 위하여 중보하며 사랑하는 조카 롯을 구원하듯이 하나님의 사랑의 역사를 이루자고 역설하였다. 3. 크리스마스 인 샬롯(12/8) 해마다 전 그룹에서 거행하던 크리스마스 행사를 금년에는 전 유니버시티 주최로 성탄음악을 중심으로 유명 음악인들을 초청하여 함께 그리고 복사중창을 통하여 질높은 성탄 음악 행사를 준비해서 12월8일에 Asian Herald

Library에서 Christmas in Charlotte Concert 및 크리스마스 축하 파티를 가졌다. 총장 전기현 박사의 인사와 "기쁘다 구주 오셨네" 합창에 이어 나성균 목사의 성탄메세지 & 기도후 오페라 캐롤라이나 General Director 마에스트로 미나씨의 특별 인사에 이어 Chun University 의 Concert 가 있었다. 성시 낭독 (눅 2:13-14)은 영어,한국어, 중국어로,

발제와 응답, 선교도전, 선교단체 소개, 네트워크별 발표, 주제별 웍샵, 그리고 저녁 설교를 통하여 북미주 이민교회의 자장 중요한 차세대 문제를 중점적으로 심도 있게 다루고 기도하는 시간을 가졌다. 첫날인 25일(수) 저녁에는 이중훈 선교사(인도)의 사역 보고 후, 노희송 목사(토론토 큰빛교회)가 ‘ 다음세대를 준비하시는 하나님’ 이란 설교를 통해 1세대와 차세대가 어떻게 하나가 되어 미래 한인 교회를 준비하여 나갈 것인가를 구체적으로 제시 하므로 큰 도전과 비전을 받는 은혜의 시간이 되었고, 이어서 중남미를 위한 기도로 마쳤다. 둘째 날인 26일(목) 오전에는 ‘ 성경에 나타난 차세대’란 주제로 박희민 목사(새생명선교회 대표) 가, ‘1세대와 차세대 관계’란 주제로 호성기 목사(필라안옥교회)와 정민철 목사(뉴욕 뉴하트선교 교회)가 발표 하였다. 바로 이어 KIMNET 총회가 있었고, 이어 각 선교단체 사역보고와 네트워크 별 사역보고가 이어지고, 저녁에는 최상득 선교사(과테말라)의 사역 보고와 한기홍 목사(은혜한인 교회)의 말씀 선포 후 미국과 한국을 위한 기도로 마쳤다. 셋째 날인 27일(금) 오전에는 ‘ 차세대의 선교비전’이란 주제로 Dr. Jon Choi(Director of M.A. in Christian Ministries at Dallas Baptist University)와 최바울 선교사 (인터콥 국제대표)가, ‘차세대와 함께하는 선교전략’이란 주제로 정민용 목사(Covenant Fellowship

까지 태국 방콕에서 KIMNET사무총장 이현석 목사의 진행으로 열렸다. 태국 목회자들과 한인선교사들을 말씀 위에 세우고 성령의 능력으로 재충전하여 태국과 아시아를 복음화 시키기 위한 것으로 방콕AVANA Hotel에서 열렸다. 이젠 한국 선교가 현지인 리더들을 더욱 발굴하여 그들을 훈련시켜 그들을 통하여 복음을 확산 시켜 나아가야 하기에, 현지인 목회자들의 재교육과 한인선교사들의 재충전이 절실히 필요 하다는 인식하에 진행하는 프로그램이었다. 이번 세미나는 태국 전국에서 120 여명의 현지목회자들과 50여명의 아시아한인선교사들이 참석 하여 배움의 귀중한 시간을 통하여 큰 도전과 비전을 받을 뿐 아니라 재충전을 받는 시간이었다. 강사로 수고하신 김용훈 목사(워싱톤 열린문장로교회 담임)의 “목회학”, 송병기 목사(뉴욕목양장로 교회 담임)의 “교회론”, 송상철 목사 (아틀란타 새한장로교회 담임)의 “ 개인전도와 양육”, 임석순 목 사(한국중앙교회 담임, 전, 대신총회신학교 총장)의 “크리스찬 리더십”, 이정기 목사(한국신나는교회 담임, 대신총회신학교 설교학 교수) 의 “설교학” 등은 말씀에 대한 갈급함을 갖고 있던 현지인 목회자들과 선교사들에게는 영적인 갈급함을 채우고 영혼 구원에 대한 열정과 도전

정신을 실제로 접할 수 있는 기회가 되었다. 그리고 자기 민족 복음화와 세계 선교에 동참 하는 큰 도전의 계기도 되었다. 초청의 글 2017년 성탄절을 맞이하여 동역자님의 사역과 가정에 주님의 은총과 평강이 함께 하시기를 기원 합니다. 2018년 새해를 맞이 하면서 주님께서 새로운 사역을 감당 하도록 조지아주 Norman Park 에 위치한 Shorter 대학 캠퍼스를 인수하여 기도와 선교 공동체 마을 PMC(Prayer Missions Community Center) 사역을 하도록 허락
