Korean New Year Celebration in Charlotte

慶祝韩国新年

“Sae-hae-bohk mahnee bah-duhsae-yo.” The Charlotte Korean community celebrated the New Year on January 4, 2014 at Halton Theatre, Downtown CPCC. Korean New Year is the first day of the lunar calendar; it is considered a more important holiday than the solar New Year's Day. While many Koreans celebrate the New Year on January 1st of the solar calendar, the lunar New Year is still popular today. In many Korean communities, the New Year is celebrated twice. The Year of the Horse Celebration, organized by the Korean Association of Charlotte, started at 5 pm with a delicious traditional meal. People gathered had a chance to see old friends, reacquaint with long- time friends or make new one. It was a time for reminisce and reconnections, and happyness. The gorgeous and spacious theater was buzzing with people all excited, and waiting for 2014 celebration. As an opening act, this year organizers had an half hour presentation about the new healthcare law, The Affordable

샬롯한인회 신년잔치 Care Act ( as some may call it “ObamaCare”), presented by Sam Sung Ins. The program started about seven pm, and included three parts. The moderators were husband and wife team, Soo Jin Ridgell & Robert Ridgell. The Invocation was presented by Pastor Sung S. Song, from the Southern Korean Presbyterian Church. The Korean Anthem and American National Anthem were sung. H. S. Pang, President of the Charlotte Korean Association welcomed all participants, members of the community and their guests, and introduced The Honorary Guests. The event continued with Mr. Hee Bum Kim, Consul General of the Republic of Korea in Atlanta, expressing congratulations to the community. Patrick Cannon, Mayor City of Charlotte also sent messages of congratulation; these were presented by Mrs. Claire Fallon, Council Member. The New Year’s Address was

introduced by Keun Soo Lee, President of Federation of Korean Associations, Southeast; it was followed by a well disserved recognition award ceremony, announced by Mr. Pang, President of the Charlotte Korean Association. Mr Chul Joo Lim, professor at the Univerity of North Carolina in Charlotte, announced the Scholarship Recipients. A special Ceremony was held for the Proclamation of January 4, 2014 as Charlotte Korean-American Day. These also concluded first part of the celebration. After a short break, moderator Soo Jin Ridgell and Robert Ridgell introduced the second part of the event. Charlotte Samulnori Club had the first performance on the program. They brought rhythm and energy with an amazing drum beat; also, a dance by a performer wearing a hat with long narrow paper attached to it, which constantly swung in a sinuous way. It was an outstanding performance. Following was the Charlotte Korean Senior’s Chorus. Elegant Korean traditional costumes delighted the eyes while words of familiar songs encourage the audience to sing. Presenter Seung Hyun Chun decided it was time for a little movement in the audience; so he opened the raffle drawing. Excited people, kids and adults, hurry through the alleys with precious prizes, and smiles from ear to ear. Another upbeat performance of Tr a d i t i o n a l Ta e k w o n d o demonstration was presented by Dragon Champion TDK Academy. Continue on page 3

BANG DUONG MSW LCSW

COUNSELING AND CONSULTING SERVICES

"Opening to New Perspectives, Finding Balance, and Strengthening Relationships" Bang Duong is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the State of North Carolina. “I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Social Work and Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from UNC Charlotte. I received my Masters of Social Work with a specialization in Clinical Practice from UNC Chapel Hill. I have over 8 years of experience working in the mental health field providing services to children, adolescent, adults and families. My calling to become a psychotherapist came from my beliefs that we, as humans, have much strength and are able to overcome insurmountable obstacles if we are able to set our mind to it. This is especially true with children whose mind are always learning and adapting. I want to help individuals and families seeking therapy to lead healthy lives and live life to its fullest. We often want a quick fix to our challenges however it’s always best to do what is necessary, and in the right way in order to achieve an effective and enduring change. In working with me, therapy is an interactive relationship between the therapist and the client. Each has to work towards a common goal which is to help you with the difficulties or challenges that you are going through or experiencing in your life. Therapy is a great opportunity to learn more about yourself and look at the challenges or obstacles in a

different angle in order to find a better solution. I look forward to working with you and helping you with your life challenges. Insurance Coverage Services may be covered in full or in part by your health insurance or employee benefit plan. Please check your coverage carefully by calling the number on your card and asking the following questions: •Do I have mental health insurance benefits? •What is my deductible and has it been met? •How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover? •What is the coverage amount per therapy session? •Is approval required from my primary care physician? Accepted Insurances: Blue Cross Blue Shield, Aetna, Magellan, Cigna, Medcost/CBHA. Sliding Scale, Out-of-network, Private Pay. My goal is to have anyone seeking counseling/ therapy be able to receive treatment and have access to the care that they need. I want to make sure that my rates are affordable and provide assistance to clients who need them. I work hard to get paneled with different insurance companies in order to decrease costs for clients. Currently, I accept: Blue Cross Blue Shield, Aetna, Magellan, Cigna, Medcost/ CBHA I also provide sliding scale on a regular basis. Please feel free to contact me for additional information; check back at any time for most updated list of accepted in-network insurance providers as I am constantly working on being panelled with different insurance carriers. Philosophy and Approach to Therapy Our views of the world, perceptions of different situations, and attitudes toward all things have a major▶

impact on our emotions and reactions to each and every situations and events which makes all the difference in the world. Achieving success, expecting failures, accepting or learning from our mistakes are based on how we perceive and interpret the different life events and situations that happen to us and surround us. Therapy will help with providing new ways to see things differently and discover novel perspectives that helps with looking at a challenge or situation in a different way, from a different angle in order to find a better solution and lead a healthier lifestyle. Finding balance in our life also help with leading a healthy lifestyle. Life is filled with many struggles and difficulties as with happy and serene experiences. Finding balance is a key to being able to overcome the challenges in our life and enjoy the wonderful experiences. This will also lead us to have a stronger relationship with

ourselves as well as with other people. Relationships are crucial aspects in our lives that affect us tremendously. Our own personal relationship to ourselves as well as our relationship with other people also helps us overcome the many obstacles that we may have in our life. With these perspectives in mind, my goal in working with you is to address concerns that you have and together look through different lenses to help you find a solution that works for you. Since everyone experience life differently and use different coping skills, therapy will be tailor to your personality and needs. ADDRESS: 4651 CHARLOTTE PARK DR.

Charlotte to Host National School Choice Week “Whistle-Stop” Event A cross-country, whistle-stop train and motor coach tour in support of school choice will make a stop in Charlotte, organizers announced today. Hosted by National School Choice Week, the tour – which will feature 14 “whistle-stop” events from Newark to San Francisco – will provide students, parents, educators and community leaders with the opportunity to celebrate effective education options, while calling for even greater school choice in North Carolina and across the country. The Charlotte event, the fourth event on the tour, will take place <No intersecting on Thursday, link> January 23, 2014, at 8:30 a.m. at Carolinas Aviation Museum. Attendance is free but an RSVP is requested by visiting www.schoolchoicetrain.com. Local event planning partners include: Parents for Educational Freedom in North Carolina, GreatSchools.org, Students for E d u c a t i o n Reform – UNC Chapter, North Carolinians for Home Education, and North Carolina Association of Independent S c h o o l s . Speakers at this event will be announced in the coming weeks. Now in its fourth year, National School Choice Week (Jan. 26 to Feb. 1, 2014) shines a spotlight on the need for all types of education options — from traditional public schools to public charter schools, magnet

schools, private schools, online learning, and homeschooling. The Week is an independent, nonpolitical and nonpartisan public awareness effort. Stops along the National School Choice Week 2014 Whistle-Stop Tour include: Newark, Philadelphia, Washington, Charlotte, Columbia, Augusta, Birmingham, Jackson, Houston, San Antonio, Austin, Tucson, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. In addition to the tour, National School Choice Week will feature an estimated 5,000 independently-planned and independently-funded events across the country. "Just as whistle-stop tours were used in the past to promote issues of transformational national importance, our tour is designed to galvanize public support for school choice and educational opportunity in local communities across the country,” said Andrew Campanella, president of National

School Choice Week. “We look forward to bringing our tour to Charlotte and working with people across North Carolina and our nation to celebrate school choice where it exists – and demand it where it does not." RD.■

Asian Herald’s Publisher Visited EM by Susan Palmes-Dennis

Publisher visited EM.jpg The publisher of Asian Herald, the biggest community paper in the Carolinas, recently visited the students of the EskuwelahangMunti (Little Schoolhouse) at the Asian Library. Publisher Dr. Ki-Hyun Chun was welcomed by the students with a traditional Filipino holiday greeting “MaligayangPasko (Merry Christmas in English). Aside from publishing the Asian herald, Chun is a well-known businessman and philanthropist who owns the Asian Library and donated several rooms for the EskwelahangMunti held every Sunday. Also present during the visit were teachers Adelia Dell Fallar, Gloria Grifenhagen and the parents. It was in September this year that the first EskuwelahangMunti opened on a Sunday at the Asian Library building. Dr. Nini de Bautista said Dr. Chun offered the use of a bigger space in the building's second floor in order to accommodate the growing number of students. De Bautista said the EskwelahangMunti is ready to meet the challenges of educating young Filipino Americans in

Philippine language and culture. The EskuwelahangMunti (EM) sa Charlotte meets every Sunday from 2 to 4 pm and is now in its 5th month of operations with 20 Filipino-American students ages six to 15 years old. During the Filipino-American Community at the Carolinas (FACC) Christmas fund-raiser party, the students made quite an impression to the Fil-Am guests when they recited an original poem by Ron Beltran entitled “AngEskwelahangMunti.” They followed it up with a performance of the Filipino folk song classic “Paru-ParungBukid (Butterfly Field)”, about a Filipina maiden whose grace is compared to a butterfly named ”Mariposa Bella” The school is a joint undertaking of the Filipino-American community and the Filipino American Spirit (FAS) with a grant from the Catholic Diocese Foundation. The FAS and the school were created by volunteers who believe in instilling understanding and appreciation of Filipino history, language and culture among the Filipino American youths growing up in Charlotte, North Carolina.■

Bariton Chen-Ye Yuan and Tenor Dongwon Shin As a young singer, baritone Chen-Ye Yuan developed his craft as a member of the finest training programs in the business, including the Houston Grand Opera Studio and the San Francisco Opera's Merola Program.

In addition to performing with many of the United States and Canada's premiere Opera Houses and Symphonies, Mr. Yuan has favored the stage of many highly acclaimed venues stretching across Europe and Asia, including his native country China. Mr. Yuan sang the Dragon King in the premiere Legend of Yao Ji. In Beijing, at the National Center for the Performing arts, he showcased his seasoned artistry in the roles of Cheng Ying in Chinese Orphan and Zhou LuoPing in A Village Teacher. Also, in Hong Kong, Mr. Yuan debuted the role of Umeya Shokichi in Dr. Sun Yat-Sen.

Bonna's Corner

The Federal City of USA-The Capitol This month I will like to continue with the series on US history- excerpts from my book, What You Did Not Know

about the United States Washington DC, is the capital city and the capitol of the United States of America. The District of Columbia was founded on July 16, 1790. The US Constitution created this special district to serve as the permanent national capital under special condition on July 16, 1790. In December of 1790, Maryland ceded land selected by President George Washington to the federal government for the creation of Washington, DC. The land was taken from Montgomery and Prince George's Counties, as well as from Fairfax County and Alexandria in Virginia. However, the lands from Virginia were later returned through retrocession. The U.S. Congress has ultimate authority over the District of Columbia, though it has delegated considerable authority to the municipal government. This jurisdiction conversely creates some controversy on the status of DC as a state. DC has no governor, only a mayor, and the area has hardly has any history or credentials as a state. The City of Washington, D.C. was officially founded in 1791 and was named in honor of George Washington. Major Pierre Charles L'Enfant designed the layouts of the streets. The city only covers an area of 68.3 sq miles and shares its name with the U.S. state of Washington, which is located on the country's Pacific coast. DC is added to differentiate the state of Washington from Washington DC, the capital city of the United States. Washington, D.C. was the first planned city in America. The first cornerstone of the Capitol building was laid

in 1793 by George Washington, the first president. However the capital was moved to Washington, D.C. in 1800, and later the first session of the Congress was held that same year. The Government Headquarters of America, Washington DC is home to 11 colleges and universities that host 20,000 international students compared to Boston, the student capital of the US, which is home to 69 colleges and universities and only hosts 24,000 international students. DC residents are the only Americans who pay federal income tax but lack any representation in the US Senate. DC residents also have non-voting delegate in the House of Representative. Interestingly, though, the District residents pay more federal income taxes per capital than the residents of all fifty states. There is 1 lawyer for every 19 residents in DC and 74 lobbyists for each United States Senator. Washington DC’s National Mall is the 3rd most visited destination in the US after Times Square, NY and the Las Vegas Strip. The tallest building in Washington DC is the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. It is 329 feet tall. D.C has warm spring and fall and cool with annual snowfall averaging 15.5 inches (39 cm)during winter. WASHINGTON DC is frequently called The Nation's Capital, which appears on its license plates, and America's First City. Taxation without Representation is currently used on some D.C's license plates. The District of Columbia is commonly known as WASHINGTON DC. It is popularly known as The Federal City. D.C is sometimes referred to as Chocolate City, Federal City. DC has no official nickname.[excerpts from my book, What You Did Not Know about the United States] . Visit Amazon/okyerebonna for more inrmation.■

On January 4th, the Carolinas’ Cambodian community celebrated the New Year with a live performance from Chhoeun Odom and Sok Sreypich in Charlotte, NC at the Dragon Court Restaurant, located at 4520 N Tryon in the Asian Corner Mall. Chhoeun and Sok are currently on an extensive tour of the United States performing many dates across the country together singing solos and duets. That Saturday night they sang to a large audience and crowded dance floor as they skillfully performed their renditions of classic pop songs of earlier days in the tropics of Cambodia. The venue was nearly filled to capacity. The famous touring guests were backed up by a local/regional band, Apsara, who in their own right are extremely skilled professional musicians with an immense repertoire of knowledge of the Ros Sereysothea and Eng Nary era of Khmer pop music and are well known to the Cambodian community of the Carolinas. Chhoeun Odom is no stranger Khmer pop music. He has appeared in a number of RSK karaoke DVD’s over the years performing his recordings and acting out the songs

in video as a solo artist and in duets with other vocalists. Chhoeun’s musical genre includes Later Khmer Traditional and light-hearted and romantic duets. Some of his songs include: ស្អប់ប្រុសមុខរឹង, Tan Sou Nay Yueng, Klach Rokadaek ខ្លាចរកាដែក, Khmer wedding song: Baek Chan, Jay Monkol ជ័យមង្គល, សម្រស់ស្រ្តីខ្មែរ,

Tourosap Nak Na?, Tan Sou Nay Yueng, Soum Treum Louch Snaeh, RoNoch Khae Praing, and Pum Men SoBen among numerous others. The accompanying artist, Sok Sreypich was born in Russey Chuk

village, Rokar commune, Svay Rieng province’s Pea Reang district. She began her musical and acting career in 1999 and has a younger sister, Lyly, who is also involved in the entertainment industry. Sok

started out singing for a restaurant, Hang Neak, where she performed regularly for 2 years. She later sang for music video production companies that needed her to sing the romantic ballads of earlier legendary pop stars like Pan Ron and Ros Sereysothea who made Khmer music history in the late ‘60’s to the early ‘70’s. Some of Sok’s songs include: Tech Troam Min Bane, Moronak Pheap Nov Aranh, Treuy Sne Nisay (from the Movie “Preah Laek Sinnvong Neang Pream Kesor,” Mjas Tbong Kon Deang, and Teuk Ho Euy Kom Al Chun ទឹកហូរអើយកុំអាលជន.

KIMNET Korean Inter Mission Network

Dr. Chun Ki-Hyun of the Chun Group and Pastor Samuel Choe of KIMNET signed a ministry partnership agreement on the usage of King’s Tower Building, 1339 Baxter Street, Charlotte, NC, as KIMNET national office. On January 7, 2014, many delegates from all over USA visited the open house and opening celebration service.

Bill Harding, the director of Social Affairs of SIMUSA, wrote the following comments on our KIMNET welcome log: “Dear KIMNET, I give thanks today for God’s blessing on KIMNET. I am proud of SIM’s long history and partnership with KIMNET. … Samuel, I thank God for your faithfulness in declaring the glory of God among the nations. SIM wishes to support your zeal for the gospel.” At 10:30 AM, the celebration began at the first floor of King’s Tower,

the Asian library, which is also life time work of Dr. Chun. Currently she houses more than 130,000 Asian books. Pastor Hyunsuk Lee of KIMNET (piano: deacon Sarah Chung) opened the worship service by introducing Pastor Samuel Choe, the executive director of KIMNET. Speaking both Korean and English, he thanked all 70 delegates from all over Charlotte and USA. Pastor Jeeho Chung, the president of Charlotte Korean Pastors Association prayed for the service, which was followed by a special song by Jungwoon Paek and Kyungsun Choi couple. Their

song of dedication was especially meaningful since they are on the last stage of getting ready to be sent off as missionary. KIMNET staff and all the delegates lifted their hands and prayed sincerely for them and also Shane & Mari Hughes couple who will be sent to Uzbekistan as missionary in the coming month. It was wonderful testimony of how KIMNET can network with other agencies and empower young missionary candidates in the process of sending them off to the mission field. Pastor Sungkee Ho, the president of KIMNET, PGM and a senior pastor of Antioch Church of Philadelphia

preached a message entitled, ‘Be Victorious through Thanksgiving!’ out of Psalms 122:1-9. He spoke both Korean and English and challenged us deeply by the depth of his exposition of the Word of God and also realness of his personal testimony. IMG_0169.JPG Dr. Chun gave brief remark of thanksgiving and introduced the delegate from the Gorden-Conwell Seminary Dean Dr. Tim Laniak

who expressed his gratitude in having opportunity to network with KIMNET and shared about his seminary history. Finally, Pastor Nah Sungkyun, the president of the Charlotte Church Association, gave the benediction in conclusion of the service. It was followed by a banquet prepared by the Chun Group, Inc.

Straight From the Carolinas

A Woman of Service

by Susan Palmes-Dennis

I don’t know her personally that much as it was only few months ago that I came to know about her, specifically as president of the Filipino-American community of the Carolinas (FACC). Now her term as FACC president has come to an end and I thought I have to report about her year-long presidency. I was demanding to interview her that I had to apologize. It's not that I am mean but years of journalistic work in the Philippines made me refuse to take “later” or “no” as an answer. I was just after the news that I didn't even ask that I be exempted to pay entrance for the FACC gala night since I would do write-ups. She might have given me a pass but I didn't ask for it. Anyway, I am going to write about Florami Lao Cordero Lee. No matter how late she would answer me or leave a message, I was determined that she would give me answers that day. I asked her how she would define a leader in relation to her leading 400 plus Fil-American families who are members of the FACC. Florami answered that a leader is like a shepherd, “who stays behind the flock, letting the most nimble to go ahead. The others follow, not realizing that all along they are being directed from behind.” The recently departed South African leader Nelson Mandela happened to be one of her inspirations, Florami said. It was no small coincidence that his passing a few days ago also preceded her exit from the FACC presidency.

As she bows out, Florami recalled with fondness the experiences she had as FACC president. Among these are her meetings with public figures like Philippine Ambassador Jose Cuisa at the International Cabinet Awards and Governor Pat McRory of North Carolina. Project after project were accomplished under her watch. These include a trip to Cherokee for the seniors and not so seniors; donation of canned goods to the Second Harvest and bringing the youth to the Second Harvest warehouse. She also organized community fund raising activities like the Concert with Mitch Franco and just recently the Zumbathon. Born in Cebu, Florami grew up in Manila. She has two children with Chinese American husband Wyatt named Dina Joy and Kellen Jojon. Her favorite colors are purple and turquoise blue while she counts Mariah Carey as her favorite singer. She said she is still reading inspirational book by Bruce and Stan specifically their book "God is in the Small Stuff in the Family.” Among the many things Florami would list in her bucket list is to help again more Filipinos rebuild their lives from the devastation of the Oct. 15 earthquake and supertyphoonHaiyan. “I have attended so many functions and have met so many different kinds of people;I thank The Lord Almighty for making me strong and all things possible!” Amid all of these, Florami still remains humble and ever ready to Present this coupon at estimate.

For our community… Americans for Prosperity, one of North Carolina’s leading advocates for educational freedom, has issued a statement in regards to a lawsuit filed by the North Carolina Association of Educators. The lawsuit was filed in Wake County Superior Court and contends that the newly created Opportunity Scholarship Program – for low-income students to attend private schools – is unconstitutional. Feel free to let the lawmakers know your opinion, and help them make a good decision in this matter. Many Asian children benefit from the Scholarship Program, so it is important to keep it going. For more information, visit www. americansforprosperity.org. AFP-North Carolina Policy Specialist, Donald Bryson had this to say: “This lawsuit is true demagoguery from a special interest group.

begins in 2014 and our statewide public school system will continue to exist. The NCAE is attacking a type of voucher program that has been repeatedly held as constitutional in state and federal courts – particularly in the landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision in Zelman v. SimmonsHarris (2002). Our public school system provides an adequate education for hundreds of thousands of students every year. This program is designed to help those families who do not, financially, have a choice in their child’s education. An attack on this program is an attack on those families.” The Opportunity Scholarship program was created as part of the North Carolina State Budget earlier this year. State lawmakers set aside $10 million in the budget to help pay private school tuition for about 2,500 students, starting in the 2014-15 school year. To be eligible, students must be currently be enrolled in public school and be eligible for free or reduced price lunches. The appropriation for the Opportunity Scholarship program, in the 2014-15 Fiscal Year, makes up one-tenth of one percent of the Education portion of the State’s General Fund.

What Tet Means To Me

By Thien Kim Vuong

When I was younger, Western celebration of solar New Year made much more sense. Everything from over-the-top countdowns to New Year’s resolutions agreed with what I thought introduction to a New Year should be all about. Tet (Lunar New Year), on the other hand, was always full of festivities, dancing, and celebrations of things that I could not relate with or truly understand. Tet simply became a day when I traded a smile and a well-trained phrase of “Chuc Mung Nam Moi (Happy New Year)” in exchange for money folded up in beautiful red envelopes. It was a day when I performed Vietnamese dances on stage, helped prepare exorbitant amounts of food, and sold raffle tickets to strangers. It wasn’t until much later— while interviewing for colleges, scholarships, and medical schools— that I started to understand the importance that this holiday held for me. After my first few interviews in high school, I started to recognize a trend: my interviewers were all intrigued by my background of being a Vietnamese-American. They asked vague questions about how being Vietnamese affected me and, in return, expected a brief synopsis of all my experiences. In truth, this wasn’t something I had ever tried to articulate, and my first attempt at an answer was nothing short of a disaster. My interviewer tried to urge me along by asking about specific experiences of “being Vietnamese”. Despite being mildly offended, I opened my mouth and, somehow, a description of Tet came pouring out. To anyone who has not experienced Tet first-hand, this was apparently eye-opening. My response was well-received with enthusiasm and fascination. As I started along the interview trail with my well-crafted answer, I felt myself getting anxious as I awaited the inevitable question. I

worried that my interviewer could see straight through my hollow response and would realize that I didn’t actually know how I was supposed to answer. I never thought it was fair to be expected to reduce my entire Vietnamese culture and childhood into mere sentences. In spite of my internal resistance, I continued to answer these questions with a smile and, over time, I started to realize that my answer evolved with each delivery. The more I was asked, the more confident I felt and the more depth I could provide. I began to tie in my family’s experiences as refugees and how their struggles shaped my childhood. I included details about how the Lien Hoa Temple and Buddhism shaped my views on leadership and outlook on life. While my answer evolved into something almost entirely different, the one aspect that stayed constant was Tet. Tet can seem somewhat loosely defined and chaotic to the untrained eye. To me, I now understand that this holiday, and the days leading up to it, is an opportunity to fully embrace my heritage and to share this aspect of my culture with the people around me. It is a day during which Vietnamese people from all walks of life can come together and celebrate as a unified people, bringing together families to honor traditions that would otherwise be lost here in America. Being a minority, our Vietnamese culture can sometimes be suppressed in order to function in an Englishspeaking and predominantly Caucasian society. However, Tet is our day. Tet allows this aspect of our identity to resurface and provides the opportunity to celebrate with others who are similar to us in this way. It is a day when we can wear our ao dai (traditional Vietnamese outfit), noi tieng Viet (speak Vietnamese), and rejoice without reservation or

judgment. To me, Tet represents the culmination of my experiences of being Vietnamese, and I look forward to it year after year. While my Vietnamese identity will undoubtedly continue to change and advance over time, I am certain that Tet will always remain as a symbol of what being Vietnamese truly means to me. I am very excited about this upcoming Tet, and I hope you are too! I am eager for the opportunity to move forward with new aspirations after learning from achievements and disappointments of the previous year. Tet uniquely

offers us a blank slate on which we can shape our future successes, and I wish you all the best in shaping your future during the upcoming year! Chuc Mung Nam Moi! We would be honored if you would join us at our Tet celebration on January 26, 2014, from 12 PM until 5 PM. The celebration will be held at Taylor Hall on the campus of CPCC (Central Piedmont Community College), and the address is 1228 Elizabeth Ave., Charlotte, NC, 28204. We hope to see you there and to share our Tet celebration with you! ■

5,000 YEARS of CHINESE MUSIC & DANCE IN ooNE NE NIGHT

“An explosion of color and sound!” — The Charlotte Observer

REVIVING 5,000 YEaRs of CIVILIZaTIoN SHEN YUN captures the spirit of ancient China, recalling the grandeur of a culture long lost. The show moves quickly from one story, region, and dynasty to the next. Down in the valley, ladies of the Yi ethnic group dance in rainbow skirts by the river. In the heavens, celestial fairies trail silken sleeves through the clouds. Resounding drums awaken the dusty plateaus of the Middle Kingdom. Gorgeous backdrops extend the stage, transporting the audience to distant lands and eras. A full, live orchestra blends East and West like no other. Dancers fly across the stage in an array of flips, spins, jumps, and aerials. The energy of classical Chinese dance is contagious; the entire performance, mesmerizing. After selling out shows in Charlotte last year, Shen Yun is returning to Charlotte in January for a limited two-show engagement. Shen Yun cannot be seen in today’s China, where traditional Chinese culture has been mostly destroyed under communist rule. Based in New York, Shen Yun is a nonprofit organization dedicated to reviving authentic Chinese culture.

KIMNET 세계선교동역네트웍

The Chun Group (대표 전기현 장로) 와 KIMNET 는 동역 합의서에 동의하여 전기현 장로의 King’s Tower Building, 1339 Baxter Street, Charlotte, NC, 3 층 에 KIMNET office 를 새로 장만하고 2014 년 1 월 7 일 (화) 에 전 미국과 샬롯지역 의 많은 목회자들이 아침부터 KIMNET office 의 오픈하우스에 오셔서 기쁜 마음으로 축복해 주셨다.

당일 오전 10:30분에 King's Tower 1층에 자리잡고 있는 아시안 도서관에서 축하 예배가 열렸다. 전기현 장로의 평생 사업이기도 한 이 도서관에는 십삼만권의(130,000)책을 갖고 있으며 개인적으로 미국내 최다 동양 장서를 보유하고 있다. KIMNET 의 이현석 목사 사회로 시작된 예배(반주 정사라집사) 에는KIMNET 상임대표 이신 최일식 목사님이 영어와 한어로 참석하신 70여명의 하객 들 에게 감사의 말씀을 전했고 샬롯 목사회 회장 이신 정지호 목사의 기도가 있었다. 안디옥

교회 담임이신 호성기 목사가 먼곳에서 오셔서 ‘감사함으로 승리하자’ 라는 주 제로 시편 122:1-9절 말씀을 통해 도전을 주셨다. 한어와 영어를 능숙하게 하시며 거의 부흥회 수준의 뜨거움과 말씀의 깊이 있는 도전이 많은 하객들 에게 도전이 되었다. 말씀 증거후 전기현 장로의 짧은 간증과 감사표시가 있었고 샬롯지역의 골든컨웰 신학교 대표 Dean Dr. Laniak의 축하의 메세지와 신학교 소개가 있었고 KIMNET과 같이 동 역할수 있게 됨을 감사 한다는 메세지도 있었다. 이 이러한 네트워크를 통하여 젊은 선교지망생 들과 많은 선

교단체들과 동역하는 모습이 아 름다웠다.마지막으로샬롯 장로교회 담임 이시고 샬롯교협 회장이신 나성균 목사가 축도함으로 예배를 마치고 Chun Group 에서 제공한 맛있는 만찬을 즐겼다. 만찬후 오후에는 나성에서 이민목회 연구원을 하시는 오상철 박사의 특강을 경청했다. 오랜기간 동안 4500 여명의 이민자들을 대상으로 연구한 이민목회 의 현황에 대한 발표를 나눈뒤 참석자 들과 Q & A의 시간을 가졌고 더욱히 2세 목회를 오래하신 오석환 목사와 같이 페널식으로 한시간 정도 의 토의가 있었다. 새롭게

2014년을 여는 KIMNET의 동역자들과 하객들의 축하와 감사와 찬양과 기쁨이 뒤범벅 되여 하나님께 향내나는 제물로 바쳐지는 하루였다. 할렐루야! 미국 선교단체 SIM USA 의 director of Social Affairs 이신 Bill Harding 목사가 KIMNET KIMNET 3.png 을 축복하며 다음과 같은 글을 방명록에 남겨 주셨다.

“Dear KIMNET, I give thanks today for God’s blessing on

KIMNET. I am proud of SIM’s long history and partnership with KIMNET. … I thank God for your faithfulness in declaring the glory of God among the nations. SIM wishes to support your zeal for the gospel.” 기사&사진: 오석환 목사

샬롯 한인회 소식 The News of Korean’s Association 갑오년 신년 잔치를 24대 샬롯 한인회 주최로 1월4일에 CPCC Halton 대 강당에서 성대히 거행 되었다. 매년 샬롯의 다른 아시안들은 음력 설을 기준으로 새해 잔치를 하지만 한인사회는 양력설을 기준으로 신년 잔치를 함으로 이지역 사회에서 신년잔치를 처음으로 성대히 갖는다. 24대 샬롯 한인회가 정성을 드려 각교회에서 음식을, 뜻있는 한인회 회원들의 정성을 담아 후원금을 지원 했고 또

한인사회에 많은 도움을 준 배려였다. 이번 신년잔치 사회는 부부 팀 수진 & 로버트 Ridgell 이 그리고 남부한인장로교회 송성섭목사 기도로 순서가 시작되었다.방호상한인회장은 참석한 모든 분들을 환영하고 귀빈 소개를 한뒤 샬롯 한인사회에 보내는 아틀란타 총영사의 축사를 김희범 영사가 대독했다. 김희범 영사는 축사를 대독하기 전에 본인이 샬롯에 전에 거주했던 것을 말하고 고향에 온 기분이고 샬롯을 자원해서 왔다고 말했다. 이번에 새로 선출 된 샬롯 시장 패트릭 캐논의 메세지는 시의원 클레어 펠론이 대독했고 미주 총연 동남부 한인회장 이 근수 회장의 축사 그외 많은 축사가 있었다. 특히 1월7일 샬롯의 '한인의 날' 을 맞이하여 2012년에 샬롯 시장 Anthony Fox 가 '한인의

임원진들이 한인 각 사업체에 들려 후원금 모금을 하는등 서로의 훈훈한 동포애를 느끼게 하는 협조의 아름다운 소식들이 이 신년 잔치에 깔려있는 소식들이 있다. 오후 5시에 식사가 시작되어 많은 한인들이 한국 음식을 즐기고 오래 못 본 낮 익은 얼굴들을 보고 만남의 날' 을 1월 7일로 정해 준 후 만 즐거운 미소 짖는 얼굴들을 1년 후에 '자랑스런 한국인 7 명' 에게 상패와 꽃다발 선물이 있었고 3분이 특별 다짐의 만세 3창을 했다. 다음은 장학금을 받는 학생들이 호명되고 장학금 전달이 있었다. 매년 한인 신년잔치에 장학금이 지속되는 것은 3분의 독지가가 대학생과 고등학생들의 사기를 격려하고 학업에 충실하기를 기부금을 한인회에 보며 이러한 신년잔치의 원해서 함으로 이어져 의미를 느낄 수 있었다. 새로운 donation 얼굴들도 많이 보였고 특히 가는 아름다운 마음들이 있기 젊은 이들의 얼굴들이 낫이 때문이다. 금번 샬롯 한인회 익지 않았다. 식사가 끝나고 장학위원회는 7명의 UNC프로그람이 시작되기 전에 약 Charlotte 교수들로 구성되었고 학생들의 30분간 "오바마케어" 강좌가 장학위원회에서는 삼성보험 회사 주최로 있었는데 성적뿐만 아니라 샬롯 한인 사회에 기여도 및 기여가능성,

그리고 리더쉽 등 다방면을 고려하여 공정하고 엄격하게 심사하였다.장학위원회에서 아래와 같이 장학생을 선발하였다. College: Chang Seo Jung (장서정),Choi Jenny(최해빈),LeeEllen Grace(이엘렌),Lee Seul(

3부 노래경연대회에는 참가자들이 모두 일류 가수가 되고 사회를 본 전승현씨는 청중의 흥분의 절정이 지속 되도록 최고 MC 솜씨를 보였다. 순서 시작 전까지는 이제 5 년동안 한 MC 이니까 올해는 쉰다고 했지만 올해도 MC의 탁월한 면을 대치하기가 부족 한 것 같았다. 한국 왕복 비행기 티켓은 끝까지 남아 신년 잔치를 즐긴 사람 에게만 주어지는 가장 큰 래플 당첨이고 매년 전 기현 전 한인회장이 donation함으로 한 개인에게 가는 행운의 티켓이다. 매년 한인들의 신년 잔치는 이 행운의 한 사람이 당첨 됨과 동시 막을 내리지만 1년 내내 신년잔치의 여운은 지속된다. 24 대 샬롯 한인회와 샬롯 한인들이 갑오년에 복되고 잘 달리는 말과 같이 열심히 노력해서 노력의 대가를 받는 복된 새해가 되기를 소원한다. ■

새해 본교회에 여러 가지로 큰 의미가 주어지고, 교회 부흥과 발전에 큰 계기가 될 것으로 믿어지기에 다음과 같이 표어를 정하였다. " 새 시대, 새 비전"(정성과 믿음을 다하여 후진을 양성하자)

January 2014 (21) 지구촌 교회

점화된 것처럼 먼저 교회 직분자들의 죄를 고백하는 기도 담임: 임대문 목사 시간을 가짐으로 이 한해를 마무리하고 부흥이 기약된 1. 안수 집사 임직식 새해를 맞이 할 계획이다. 이에 따라 올 한해가 끝나기 까지는 10년전 미 남 침례회 후원으로 ‘자신의 숨겨진 죄를 고백하는 세워진 샬롯 지구촌 교회는 기도시간으로 수요예배를 진행할 교인투표로 안수 집사로 결정된 계획이다.. 예정자 김종대 안수집사 임직을 새해 1월 둘째 주(1월 12일) 3. 12월 25일 성탄절 오전 10시 저녁 5시에 가질 예정이다. 샬롯 예배 드림 지구촌 교회가 창립된 이래 본 본 교회서는 12월 25일 오전 교회서 세워지는 유일한 안수 10시에 성탄절 예배를 드린다. 집사의 임직식인 만큼 다들 이날 성탄절 오전 예배를 바쁘시더라도 참석해주셔서 드림으로서 먼저 예배를 통해 자리를 빛내주시길 소망하고 있다. 이날 랄리 제일 침례교회의 담임 목사이신 최동갑 목사님께서 축복의 메시지를 전해줄 예정이다.

8. 임한곤 선교사와 이영기 교수 방문 파라과이에서 성공적으로 선교하며 혼신의 힘을 다해 수고하는 임한곤 선교사가 12 월28일 낮에 도착하여 12 월 31일 이곳을 떠났다. 주일 낮예배에서 선교 보고를 하여 선교 현장을 나누는 기쁨을 선사 하였다. 한편 Chun University 설립에 산파역할을 담당하는 이영기 계명대 교수 (tenure professor)가12월31일 2.수요 예배 야고보서 강해를 이곳을 방문하여 약 1주일간 마치다 머물면서 남은 사역을 긴밀히 협의 할 계획이다. 그동안 수요예배시간에 3개월 동안 진행되어온 야고보서 9. 필리핀 난민 구호 강해를 마쳤다. 내년 새해부터는 2-3개월 전에 사상 최대의 예수님의 비유를 비롯한 사도 피해 중 하나를 만난 필리핀 바울의 비유 시리즈 강해를 4 재난민을 위해 정성껏 최선으로 개월에 걸쳐 진행할 예정이다. 헌금하였다. 12월이 다 내년 새해 수요예배시간에 비유 가기 전 드린 헌금은 샬롯에 시리즈 강해를 시작하기전에 거주해온 피해 현장 시장의 기도의 주제를 가지고 한해를 동생을 초청하여 보고를 들은후 마무리하고자 한다. 지금으로부터 실시하여 의미를 더 하였으며, 110년 전인 1903년 원산에서 앞으로 지속적 관심을 갖기로 의사이었던 하디 선교사의 죄 하였고, 그를 통해 현장에 고백으로 시작된 원산 부흥의 전달하고, 샬롯 교협과 힘을 불길의 영향을 받아 4년 후인 합하여 계속 지원을 하여야 할 1907년 평양 대부흥때 길선주 것 같이 느꼈다. 장로의 죄의 고백으로 부흥이

성탄의 감사를 하나님께 드리고 나서 가족 친지들과 함께하는 시간을 가지게 된다. 성탄 주일 예배시간에는 주일학교에서 학생들이 특송하는 순서를 가짐으로 온 교우들이 함께 성탄의 기쁨을 누리는 시간을 가진다. 이날 저녁 수요예배는 가지지 않는다. 4. 송구 영신 예배 본교회에서는 12월 31일 저녁 7 시에 만나 저녁 식사와 더불어 친교를 가지고 난후 송구 영신예배를 드린다
