Charlotte Church Hosts Global Mission Conference 샬롯 세계 선교 대회

夏洛特教會舉行全球宣教大會 The Global Mission Conference for the 10th Anniversary of KIMNET (Korean Inter Mission Net work) was hosted by Charlotte Presbyterian Church (formerly Korean Presbyterian Church of Charlotte - Sr. Pastor Sung Kyun Na) on October 15 to October 21, 2012. The Conference was the fruit of prayer and hard work of Executive of Director Rev. Il Sik Choe, Executive Secretary Rev. Hyun Suk Lee, Information Secretary Rev. Joseph Lee and Church Session led by Rev. Sung Kyun Na. The conference workshops were led by 50 Korean Missionaries from all six continents and 30 special guest speakers from all over the world. Those in attendance included over 300 ministers & workers for the Lord in the USA and Canada. In the past, these annual conferences were hosted by megachurches like Grace Church (Senior Pastor Gihong Han) in Los Angeles with membership over 20,000. However, this year the conference was hosted by a small church, although it is the first Asian Church formed in Charlotte, as the theme for the 10th anniversary conference was to focus on helping small to medium size churches become more mission-minded in order to fulfill the Great Commission. The opening night event featured two parts. The first worship part was highlighted by the introduction of Rev. Bang Ji Il, the first Korean missionary to China who is 102 years old. His opening message entitled “All to Glorify God” was clearly delivered. Considering he had flown in directly from Korea that day and the energy level in his strong tone of voice, it was hard to believe he was 102 years old. In addition to his opening night message, Reverend Bang maintained an attentive posture throughout all of the sessions during the week, making sure not to miss any workshops. The second part of opening night worship involved music and began with the “Angels Choir” from Moscow, Russia. They sang

Korean and English hymns very beautifully. Presider Rev. Ho, Sang Ki – President of KIMNET, was amazed at how well they could speak Korean and listeners were so moved by their beautiful voices that they said they sang just like Angels. The next act was Yu Myung Hae Korean Fusion Gospel Team that also came from Korea. The team of 12 performed traditional Korean dancing and music to a gospel message. They were very entertaining and they delivered their gospel message in a unique way. Next to perform was Jill Gardner who currently performs the leading soprano role in the opera “TOSCA” for Opera Carolina, and was introduced by Maestro James Meena. She sang the Lord’s Prayer and was accompanied by the chief pianist Emily. When Jill Gardner finished singing the Lord’s Prayer, the audience all stood up and began singing the Lord’s Prayer together, thus ending the night in the best way with the best prayer for the KIMNET Global Conference. So what exactly is KIMNET about? KIMNET introduces its ministry: We are living in a remarkable age where God is moving in our midst bringing us together to finish the task of His Great Commission. As we look at North American Korean immigrant history of 100 years, God has established more than 4,300 Korean American & Canadian Churches and many diverse mission organizations to finish the task of Global Mission. Especially as Koreans living in the US and Canada, we have to humbly discern what God’s will is for us. Although Korean Churches are sending out 23,312 missionaries over 169 countries, we must not be satisfied where we are at but really search our

souls in seeking God’s will in how God will use the Koreans scattered throughout the world especially in North Americas. Specifically speaking, God is preparing His people to reach the world and we must be ready in obedience to have the same vision to bring Christ to the world, And in order to finish the task of world evangelization, we must do it together. When mission organizations and missional churches partner & network we can do mission effectively. Now is the time to network and partner with churches and mission organizations to finish the task of Global Mission. We have to learn to unite together and know God’s heart of mission. God’s heart is for us to share information together, mobilize together and train together to finish the Global Mission. KIMNET would like to be that platform to create synergy effect in missions empowering the churches to carry out His Great Commission. During the Conference, work shops and classes were all in Korean but on October 18th, the evening program was all in English and it was a Cultural Connection Celebration Night. Dr.Ki-Hyun Chun – VP of KIMNET invited prominent American community leaders as well as leaders in the Asian American community. Over 500 people attended and gourmet Korean food was served by caterers from Atlanta. The Hope Community Church praising team led praising and Dr. Bruce Johnson –President of SIM (Service in Mission) delivered the message. There was a mission report from Ms. Mariella Provost who was born in Korea when her parents were missionaries in the 1920s. Everyone was surprised when she announced that she was 90 years old, only a few years younger than the 102 Rev. Bang Ji Il. Then James Linton who is a 4th generation Korean missionary reported on his “Wellspring” mission work in North Korea as he spoke fluently in both Korean and English. continue to page 3

Asian history spans thousands of years and its culture is rich and diverse. The CAACC strives to provide business opportunities and to promote business actiAvities 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.

continue from page 1 Heidi Linton who is the sister-in-law of James Linton gave a mission report of “Christian Friends to Korea (CFK)”, and time set aside to provide offering for North Korea Mission work. After the mission reports, the entertainment for the evening featured the Russian “Angels Choir” and Yu Myung Hae Korean Fusion Gospel Team, who performed during opening night. There was TaekwonDo Demonstration with message by King’s Tiger. And to top it all, the University Baptist Church Choir with its 70 members led by Ministers Aris Graves and Teddy Andrews sang and rocked the house. Especially conductor Teddy Andrews’s dynamic style and enthusiastic attitude serving God through music gave long lasting impression to all of them. Everyone in attendance really enjoyed the

performances, food, and fellowship. There are approximately 400,000 churches in the U.S., 60,000 churches in Korea, in addition to 4,300 Korean American and Korean Canadian churches. Only a small fraction of those churches have had the privilege to host a mission conference like the one held by KIMNET this past October, and this is the first mission conference to be hosted by the Asian community in both North and South Carolina. The Charlotte Presbyterian Church gives thanks to the Lord for the privilege to host this magnificent conference. All those who attended the conference were rejuvenated and recharged. We humble ourselves to obey Christ and the Great Commission to work locally but think globally to reach souls near and far.■ by Dr.Sunny Chun

This network meeting was by far one of the most informative to date, and a special thanks goes to the CAACC group for organizing, and for Dan Starks and Connie Smigiel for graciously giving their time and talent to share their valuable knowledge about Personal Safety. ‘If you are wondering what to ‘give’ your high school or college student for Christmas, birthday, or special occasion, this would absolutely be the ‘perfect gift’ says long-time friend and ‘student’ Andrea Lee.

[Starks had taught his students to scope out an area when it was new, and locate the police station, or safety points.] While driving to the police station she stayed on the line, and made several turns to see if she was being followed. Yes, she was. She was their target! As she pulled into the front of the police station, several police cars surrounded the van that was tailing her, and a potential robbery, assault, or worse, was avoided. What the police found in the back of the van, according to Starks, was duct tape, a rape kit, handcuffs. This young woman’s life was surely saved by her quick action, and by what she had learned before going off to college, in Starks class that early Saturday morning.” 704-392-SAFE (7233) At one point in the evening, Connie Smigiel demonstrated on a mannequin how to for a complete list of Self-Protection Prouse “Police grade Pepper Spray,” which is grams offered. ■ Submitted by Andrea Lee designed to “buy time” for the victim to

25th FACC Gala on November 10, A Sterling Silver Event by Dr. Nini RB Bautista, Past President FACC, Chairman Emerita/Past President, CAACC

On Saturday, November 10, 2012, from 5 pm, the Filipino Americans from all over the Carolinas will be gathering in full force at the beautifully renovated Blake Hotel (former Adams Mark Hotel) on 555 McDowell Street in uptown Charlotte, to celebrate 25 years of Filipino American unity, harmony and community service. It will be recalled that the first Filipino American Gala in Charlotte was held on November 22, 1988, organized by Rudy and Lita Joaquin, the Balcitas, Fallar sisters, Penillas, Rodriguezes,Restars, Burrows,Venturas, Ocampos, Siplons, Grifenhagens,Cabugwasons, del Mundos,Salcedo, Aspa,Quinio, Oates, etc. at the Royce Hotel (now the Hilton Hotel) on Tyvola. Thereafter, the need to formalize an association was evident, and the FACC's Articles of Incorporation was approved two years later, in December 1990 and thus the FACC was born. The first President, Lito Balcita, a chemical engineer was elected for 1991. The year 1988 was significant, as it was designated as the "Year of the Filipino Americans in the US" and marked the 225th ( now the 249th) anniversary of the first Filipino settlements in New Orleans, Louisiana, the so called Manila Village and St. Malo. Thus, from that auspicious beginning in 1988, the annual Filipino Gala Night has come to reflect the growth, vigor and changing demographics of the Filipino community (and Asians). The latest census figures cite about 5,000 Fil-Ams, with Asians as the fastest growing minority, next to the Latinos, in the international city of Charlotte. As the families grew, so did the community

involvement of the Filipinos. Some notable projects of the Filipino community through the years are -- the cultural enhancement programs in the three family days with historic attendance at the Charlotte Museum of History,(earning a citation for the Filipino community), of the renowned Smithsonian exhibit, SINGGALOT, The Ties that Bind, The History of the Filipino Diaspora of the Filipinos to the US since the 1500's, exemplifying the rich cultural heritage of the. Many philanthropic endeavors for the needy, here and back home, dot the landscape of Filipino American community life, thanks to its deep religious beliefs and strong family ties & compassion.. There are multi-.fundraiser events of every type, size & audience to benefit victims of natural disasters, build homes for the poor, provide educational opportunities to improve economic viability of families, feed the hungry(Homeless Shelter & Ministry of the Poor), rescue the street children, support medical missions & surgeries for life-threatening medical conditions, with plans to finance incubator projects , mini-banks as direct assistance to the enterprising, and many other such activities in answer to the cry for help. Aside from the Gala, the FACC also built the active social network among the members & outside community, through its signature events like the acquaintance and "gettingto- know- you" parties for newcomers, the Spring Fling & Easter Egg Hunt for the kids, charity golf tournaments, the Flores de Mayo or Santacruzan featuring the young Filipino Americans, and many more.The gregarious Filipino has every opportunity

to mix and mingle with friends and family throughout the year while imparting Filipino culture to their young. The Silver Anniversary celebrations on November 10 will continue supporting the mission and vision of the FACC, in its work of providing the opportunities of a compassionate society to help the needy It will feature a raffle with the grand prize of $2,000( one need not be present to win), but the many exciting consolation prizes will be awarded only to those who are at the Gala ( to encourage attendance). Since a limited number of the raffle ticket is being sold, it will increase your chances of winning. At any rate, it will be a win-win situation, since all proceeds will go to the direct assistance projects to be carried out immediately..Another opportunity to help will be the affordable ads ( starting from a mere $40 ) in the Gala Souvenir program, which will allow the FACC members/families, to stand and be counted as caring members of the Fil Ams of Charlotte at this important milestone in our history. Call your FACC officers now for your Gala ($55) & raffle tickets ($10) and to place

your family ad.

A Seven-Year-Old Bank with a Newly Minted Business Model

As neighbor across the street, we always wondered what is so special about New Dominion Bank. Friday, November 2nd, Asian Herald had a surprise visit from a wonderful team, Scott Shires (Vice president) and Lindsay Talbot (Senior Vice President); later in the afternoon, they brought the man responsible for much of the vision, CEO John Hipp III. In its early years, New Dominion Bank (NDB) concentrated its efforts in the emerging arena of Internet banking, gaining the expert technological skills many banks are still struggling to master. But after several years spent building a national customer base without a sustainable foundation, New Dominion saw a better opportunity. The real potential for future growth was in the amazing metropolitan statistical area (MSA) of Charlotte, N.C., right in the shadows of the big banks. Charlotte has been known for having big, high-profile banks, but it also has a big void. Unlike vibrant mid-sized cities such as Indianapolis, San Jose and Nashville, Charlotte has no dominant $1 - $3 billion community bank. “New Dominion Bank is building Charlotte’s Favorite Community Bank with relationships” says C. John Hipp III, CEO of New Dominion Bank. “We are the alternative to big banking. We are building a super community bank which operates with local decisions, less red tape and more responsiveness.” Currently with around $350 million in assets, the goal is to build a $2 billion dollar bank with a 7 to 10 branch network within the market. “Charlotte is the only major metropolitan area east of the Mississippi that doesn’t have a dominant community bank” according to Hipp. “Our goal is to fill that void.” Established in 2005, the bank was founded

on an internet banking strategy that built a national customer base and a loan portfolio heavily concentrated in real estate and development. Hipp was brought on in late 2010 to help develop and execute a community banking strategy. He was a natural fit for the role with his record of success at South Carolina Bank and Trust and Rock Hill National Bank. Hipp came in with the vision to build Charlotte’s Favorite Community Bank, a newly minted business model for the seven -year old bank. To achieve this vision, Hipp has made major changes in policy, goals and culture. Hipp initiated the changes by building a new management team, consisting of Marc Bogan, President and COO; Blaine Jackson, CFO; Greg Burke, CCO. Hipp and Bogan have a history of working together at both South Carolina Bank and Trust and Ameris Bank. Hipp and team are raising $30 million to recapitalize and build a high performance bank. The new business model is focuses personally knowing the customer and finding ways to help them be successful. It is a community bank without layers of hierarchy and can give customers quick decisions when they are looking for a loan. “Customers are coming to us seeking a bank that is relationship-oriented, not where they are treated like a number. Most people think of a community bank as one that they have real relationship with, “says Hipp. “We are positioned to build something of value, something meaningful to the Charlotte community” says Hipp. Dr Chun is eager to invite some of his firm’s clients, investors with over 20 years experience, to give the bank a chance. The personal touch, along with expert advice will make New Dominion -banking-experience a winner. But don’t just take our word for; come in, and see it for yourself. Young at heart, technology savvy, no matter at what point in your life you stand, this relation will move you to the new millennium. Your phone may not prepare dinner, but it will order one; may not produce money, but will deposit what you earned. You may still have to work, but this bank will save you cash, and reward your efforts. ■

First Annual Sushi Eating Contest Fund Raiser supporting the Miss Asia Carolinas Scholarship Fund

November 3, 2012 Concord, NC – Hissho Sushi and the Charlotte chapter of the National Association of Asian American Professionals collaborated in the first annual Sushi Eating fundraiser at Concord Mills Mall. Shoppers and contestants hailed from the entire Charlotte metropolitan area. The event was hosted by Mr. Warren Chu of NAAAP and emcee, Ms. Dion Lim, news anchor from WCNC Charlotte. The competition also served to celebrate the multicultural composition of the Asian American community and proceeds benefited a scholarship fund for promising young Asian American students representing the various Asian ethnicities. To kick off the event, 2012 Pageant winner, Miss Monique Tuzon sang the National Anthem and other pageant contestants entertained the crowd with beautiful and artful cultural performances. Volunteers from Bank of America, including Kimberly Blewett, Jinna Kim and Qadryah Zamri worked with NAAAP and the Hissho Sushi staff to literally set the stage for the twelve contestants who stepped up to the challenge of consuming mass quantities of California makizushi, otherwise known as “rolled sushi,” in a mad rush to beat the clock. Andrea Lee, May Kam, Hsiao Wen and the Concord Mills Mall Hissho Sushi team prepared over 700 tasty sushi pieces for our contestants. Winner Jann Heredia shared his winning secret with the

crowd: “eat…drink…eat…drink!” as he devoured 28 pieces of sushi in the final three minutes to take home the trophy, prize money and bragging rights. Chief event sponsor and Hissho Sushi CEO, Philip Maung, was recently recognized by the Obama administration for his visionary leadership in tough economic times. The National Association of Asian American Professionals is the fastest growing Asian American professional organization in North America with a local chapter in Charlotte lead by President, Warren Chu and Chairman of the Board, Marcus Cheung. The Miss Asia Carolinas pageant, founded by Dr. Nini Bautista of the Carolinas Asian American Chamber of Commerce, engages young Asian Americans in the celebration and awareness of the diverse cultural heritage and traditions that comprise the Asian American community in Charlotte. ■

Clearly, having a plan is essential toward achieving future lifestyle goals, particularly for those nearing retirement. Like other consumers who are looking for guidance, Asian Americans who want to learn more about investment options but don’t know where to begin should seek out a financial professional they feel comfortable with. A good place to start is through referrals - ask friends and coworkers if they can recommend a financial professional and consider interviewing several.

在美國如果出現飛機失事,即使 損傷輕微,也一樣會上新聞頭條。 相比之下,美國醫療界可謂更要 命:每週因為醫療事故而丟掉性命 的人足以裝滿四架大型客機。但在 全世界,這些錯誤都常常不被人察 覺,醫療界也極少從中汲取教訓。 那些原本可以預防避免、幾無差別 的醫療事故在世界各地一遍一遍上 演。 在美國,外科醫生在手術台上認 錯部位動錯刀的次數高達每週 40 次。如果將醫療錯誤當成一種疾病 的話,它在美國算是第六大死因,

排名緊隨意外事故之後,比老年痴 呆症還靠前一位。若將人員傷亡撇 開不談,單從財物損失上看,醫療 錯誤就使美國醫保系統每年損失高 達數百億美元。 在本專業領域進行了調查研究的 醫學專家認為,大約有 20%到 30%的用藥、醫檢及手術是不必要 的。還有比這更不靠譜的行業嗎? ( 湘軍摘自華爾街日報)

4 社會觀察 Society 一個台灣人 看上海交大 佚名 看一個人,可以看他的學識, 他的氣質,他的丰采,他的談 吐。看一個國家,可以看它的大 學。 我每到一個國家,一個城市, 風景區可以不看,但大學和博物 館一定要看。 台大的老校長傅斯年,掌理台 大的時間其實不長,但這位胡適 的得意門生,前北大校長,卻給 台大奠立了很好的基礎,把北大 的學術風氣和自由學風帶到了台 大,把大學的莊嚴地位和神聖使 命清楚地傳達給一代又一代的台 大人。傅老給台大師生留下一句 鏗鏘有力擲地有聲的名言:“貢 獻這所大學於宇宙之精神”。是 啊,“宇宙之精神”,多麼莊嚴 神聖,多麼亙古長新。 美國東岸的耶魯、哈佛、哥倫 比亞,西岸的柏克萊、史丹佛我 都去過,也待過;大陸的北大和 上海交大、我也去過。 大陸的大學,即使是名牌大 學,培養的是螺絲釘;美國的名 校和台大,培養的是人材。大陸 的大學,即使是名牌大學,比較 像職業學校或技術學院;美國的 名校和台大,培養的是獨立研究 獨立思考的領袖人材。大陸的大 學,尤其是名牌大學,很像是在 開店開公司;美國的名校和台 大,則把自己看得很重,看作是 學術殿堂。 所以,台大可以出幾個諾貝 爾,大陸十多億人,卻無法“填 補空白”。

上海的同濟大學,也是老牌菁 英名校了,尤其是以建築系聞 名;然而,電視廣告里,它下屬 的“同濟大學裝潢公司”,居然 用同濟的金字招牌,拉裝潢生 意。 上海交大,也是百年名校,當 年曾為國民政府培養出多少棟樑 之材;現在的交大,不但有股票 上市公司(當然,同濟、北大、 清華等大陸名校都有),走在它 的校園里,簡直就像逛一個市 場。在廣元西路的校門旁邊,交 大用臨街校地蓋了一座6層大 樓,一樓二樓是電腦商場,裡面 分隔成許多狹小的店面,租給商 家賣電腦或組裝電腦。走道是那 樣的狹窄,商家再把桌子搬出來 拉客,讓人走都不好走。人人手 上一根煙,那空氣真叫一個污 濁。三樓是交大昂立書店,純粹 以營利為目的,連中小學生到幼 兒的參考書都賣。你能想象柏克 萊、史丹佛的大學書店裡面,賣 非學術方面的書?四樓以上則是 交大昂立學院,一個以營利為目 的的英語電腦進修學院。進了校 園,到處可以看到廣告,有交大 的這個英語培訓班,那個電腦培 訓班,原來交大不止一個昂立進 修學院,還有好幾類似的學店 呢。學生宿舍的一樓,被出租給 某個培訓班當教室,大白天的也 會聽到,這個那個英語培訓班里 傳出託福gre聽力模擬測驗的 錄音機聲音。小賣部旁邊,還有 一間店面是賣仿製的青銅器。還 有個地方,墻壁上用手很粗糙地 寫著:假肢,洽詢請進。交大還 有用學校名字作商標的“交大昂 立一號”補品,呵呵,西方人真

笨,怎麼不搞個「劍橋海狗 丸」、「牛津隆胸素」、「哈佛 腦鑽石」、「耶魯減肥茶」。 交大的系、所,分得真是細, 大概中國人都喜歡自立山頭,都 喜歡擁有好聽的頭銜,所以交大 有無限多的系主任、所長、院 長。 比方說,居然還有個“機器人 研究所”。耶魯大學整個工科, 就是一個系:工程系。 當知識變得如此支離破碎的時 候,你還指望能培養出有全局眼 光的棟樑之材? 當大學校園變得像個市場商場 的時候,你還指望能熏陶出什麼 優雅之士?聽上海的大學生和大 學畢業生的談話,永遠都只圍繞 著“個人”問題,出國啦,讀學 位啦,學英語啦,學電腦啦,工 作啦……。 在美國和台灣,大部分的社會 變革和進步,都是由學校和民間 的知識分子推動的;在上海,知 識分子是這樣的幸福,一切事情 都只需要等著上海市政府做。知 識分子讀書,只不過是為了賺 錢、結婚、傳宗接代而已。 這也不奇怪,叢林里的猩猩猴 子也是這樣呢。 甲:“聽說你找了個廳長的女兒,洪福 加艷福!恭喜恭喜,恭喜!” 乙:“老實講,我決不是因為她爸是高 幹才追她。不瞞你說,我也不怕人家說 我唯美主義,主要是她長得漂亮!”

五,保護本國文化產業。 二零零一年八月,韓國文化觀光部發布 「發展韓流」文化產業方案,「韓流」正 式命名。同時,成立韓國文化振興院,舉 全國之力發展包括電影、電視、動漫、音 樂、手機與網絡等相關文化內容產業。

爭取掌握世界文化霸權 素有「韓流之父」之稱的韓國 SM 娛樂 公司創辦人曾李秀滿的一段表態,透露了 韓國向全球輸出文化的野心。二零一一 年,在韓流未來戰略論壇上,李秀滿曾表 示,他有一個遠大的目標:建立假想中的 國家,讓外國粉絲成為假像國家的「國 民」。李秀滿說:「過去是企業先向海外 發展,文化緊隨其後,但現在變成文化幫 助企業的當地活動。要讓 K-POP 等韓流成 為國家基礎產業。」他判斷,今後世界文 化產業將從以國家為單位的競爭轉化為地 區競爭格局,希望向亞洲國家傳授韓國過 去所積累的流行文化的挖掘、培訓以及製 作經驗,並「爭取使以韓流為基礎的東方 流掌握世界文化霸權」。 「韓流」產業的全球擴張,在賺得經濟效 益同時,也是韓國軟實力輸出的體現。事 實上,早在上世紀末,韓國的對外文化輸 出就有計劃地開始了。成立於一九九一年 的韓國國際交流財團,多年來致力於向外 推廣韓國文化,推動韓國學研究,為提升 韓國國家軟實力做出了重要貢獻,目前已 在全球範圍內資助超過五十個國家和地區 的一百五十多所大學的韓國學研究。

韓流軟實力輸出全球 金宇祥表示,韓國在短短三十年的時間 裏,同時完成了政治上的民主化過程,與 經濟的現代化,國家發展的成功經驗在全 世界也極為罕見。韓國希望通過對外交 流,向外推廣韓國成功經驗,「韓國模式 不一定要其他國家全部引用,但起碼要可 以值得研究探討,學術上也是值得研究的 一個有重要價值的東西」。 談到韓國軟實力輸出的成功案例,金宇 祥想起了一位在韓國學習國際政治學的肯 尼亞留學生。這位留學生對韓國媒體表 示,希望學成歸國之後,能帶動肯尼亞的 一些民主制度化的工程,為之做出貢獻, 希望肯尼亞成為民主體制的國家。「他 (肯尼亞留學生)不但學習韓國的文化, 特別是流行文化,也得學習韓國這個短暫 歷史內轉變的過程,對他們來說也有值得 他們學習的、值得探討的內容。」 今年是韓中建交二十週年,二零一一 年,韓國共有六萬二千四百四十二人赴中 國留學,佔赴中國留學總人數的百分之二 十一點三,是中國留學生人數最多的國 家,而留學韓國的中國留學生總人數為六 萬三千人,佔韓國留學生總數的八成四, 也是韓國留學生的第一大國。

亞裔在美崛起 成功動輒遭嫉 亞裔已成為美國教育程度和 所得最高、成長最快的族群, 與美國猶太人一樣,成為移民 成功的象徵,也承受一些隨之 而來的負擔。 亞裔在美國社會一直是處於 邊緣的少數族裔,現在卻快速 崛起,而職業男籃新星林書豪 是最顯著的代表性人物。今年 3 月甚至有人問歐巴馬總統, 知不知道林書豪已超過他,成 為名氣最響亮的哈佛畢業生。 林書豪今年春天即鼓勵亞裔 佔多數的紐約市史岱文森高中 畢業生:「絕不要讓任何人告 訴你,你做不到什麼。」 華爾街日報 27 日在名為「虎族 崛起」(Rise of the Tiger Nation) 的專文中指出,哈佛和耶魯等 長春藤名校精英,當年曾因感 受猶太人的威脅,對他們秘密 訂定招生限額。現在這些名校 有些也被控歧視亞裔學生。 這顯示亞裔與猶太人移民美 國的歷史雖然非常不同,卻因 成就傑出面對同樣境遇。亞裔 已成為最能表現美國讓富有決 心毅力的人,實現成功夢想的 移民團體。他們不僅超越西班 牙語裔,成為人數最多的美國 新移民團體,對追求美國夢想 更是積極。 2000 年到 2010 年亞裔人口 成長 46%,2010 年的人數已經 是 1980 年的四倍,成長速率超 過任何其他族群。 小說「大亨小傳」(The Great Gatsby)中的白人至上主義者布 坎南曾對「黃禍」表示驚駭 說:「我們如果不注意,白人 會被整個淹沒。」這種觀念在 今天可能讓人覺得很要不得, 可是面對亞裔源源而來,以及 他們驚人的成就,沒有更多美 國人懷有這種心態實在很不容


italktv 三大中文電視比較


易。 猶太人是在成就與穩定方 面,與亞裔最類似的美國移民 團體。他們沒有像早期的亞裔 移民引起強烈種族仇恨,得以 更快在美國站穩腳步。但是, 猶太人在文化上不像亞裔那麼 沉默內斂,野心也更大,積極 向政治、社會和娛樂等各界發 展,因此進入美國社會後面對 更強烈的阻力。 亞裔在美國的發展與猶太人 正好相反。當年來到美國的猶 太移民,大多身無分文。現在 的亞裔移民卻比任何其他移民 團體受過更高的教育,也更富 裕,而他們通常避免涉及政 治。 亞裔驚人的成就,讓人懷疑 他們能夠避免強烈恐懼和嫉妒 多久,尤其是在經濟低迷,或 是美國與中國等亞洲國家發生 經濟和政治衝突之時。如果中 國有一天真的成為美國的敵 人,華裔的不安情緒絕對會超 過美國猶太人的忠誠受到質疑 之時。 蔡美兒去年出版「虎媽的戰 歌」受到那麼多激烈攻擊,有 部分或許與怨恨亞裔在美國崛 起,尤其嫉妒亞裔能夠教養出 「完美」子女有關。 猶太人的語言活力、智識和 尖銳諷刺傾向,以及強烈競爭 個性,會不會被亞裔的審慎拘 謹,敬重社區,對音樂、科學 和數學等非語言領域的天賦所 取代?社會會不會回到當初由 白人清教徒主導時一樣,變得 比較沉靜? 文化的本質變幻不定,亞裔 也不乏狂放風趣的領袖人物。 林書豪在為史岱文森高中畢業 典禮錄製的影片,即與亞裔朋 友一起演唱滑稽的饒舌歌。就 像從世界其他地方來到美國的 人一樣,他們混身散發對一切 毫不在乎和活力旺盛的美國作 風。

베트남참전 유공 전우 총 연합회 Service Center for Korean

한인 베트남참전 용사들 공로인정 VA주 상원서도 결의안 추진 한국군으로 베트남전에 참전한후 미 시 민권자가된 참전용사들의 희생과 공로 를 인정하는 내용의 결의안 채택이 지난 번 뉴저지주에 이어 버지니아주 의회에 서도 추진된다. 미주 메트남참전 유공전 우 총연합회 (회장 한창욱)는 지난 9월 29일 저녁 우래옥에서 쳅 피터슨 버지니 아주 상원의원이 참석한 가운데 기자회 견을 열어 주 상원결의안(Resolution) 추진에 대해 밝혔다 한창욱 회장은 “미 시민권자가 된 베트 남 참전 한인들은 한국군으로 싸웠지만 한국 정부로부터 아무런 인정도, 혜택도 받지 못하고 있다”며 “연방 의회에서 의 한인 시민권자 참전용사들의 명예 회 복을 위해서 주 의회나 정부에서 공식적 인 결의안이 도움이 될 것”이라고 추진 배경을 밝혔다. 이번 결의안은 “한인 베트남 참전용사 들은 미국 군인들과 동등하게 희생을 치 럿기 때문에 이들의 희생을 기려야 한 다”는 내용을 골자로 하고있다. 챕 피터슨 의원은 “버지니아주 상원에 서 버지니아 거주 한인 시민권자 참전용 사들을 영예롭게 여기고 이를 기억하기 위한 결의안을 상정하고자 한다”며 “ 내년 1, 2월쯤에는 결의안이 채택될수 있을 것”이라고 내다봤다. 한인 시민권자 베트남전 참전용사들에 대한 결의안은 2010년 워싱턴주에 이 어 괌, 하와이, 뉴저지에서 잇따라 채택 되었고 버지니아에 앞서 지난8월에는 메 릴랜드 주 상원에서 캐런 몽고메리 의원 을 통해 결의안을 상정한바 있다 한창욱 회장은 “총 연합회에서는 12개 주에서 결의안이 채택되는걸 목표

로 뛰고있다”며 “미국에만 약 2천400 명위 베트남 참전 한인 시님권자가 있는 것으로 추산한다”고 말했다. 주 의회에서의 결의안은 법적인 구속력 을 갖는건 아니나 한인 참전 용사들의 희 생과 공로를 공식 인정하는 의미에다 향 후 연방의회 차원의 결의안 채택에 도움 이 된다는점에 큰 의의가 있다.

초교파적 동역과 네트워킹을 통한 선교를 위한 창립된 킴넷(Korean Inter Missions Network, KIMNET)의 <창립 10주년 선교 대회>가 15일(월)부터 21일(주일)까지 캐 롤라이나에서는 처음으로 이곳 샬롯도시에 소재한 샬롯장로교회(담임 나성균 목사)에서 개최되었다. 미주 이민교회 목회자들과 세계 각지의 선 교단체 대표, 및선교사 등 선교 지도자 3백여 명이 모인 선교대회는 지난 10년을 돌아보고 앞으로의 10년을 계획하기 위한 자리였다. 미 국의 40만개 교회와 한국의 6만개의 교회, 미 주와 캐나다 이민교회 4,300개의 교회가 있 으나 전 세계의 선교사를 불러 1주간의 선교 대회를 여는 교회는 극소수에 불과하다.이를 위하여 러시아 천사합창단과 유명해 한국 국 악팀이 이 대회만을 위하여 초청되어 선교대 회기간 중에 공연을 하였으며, 세계적으로 명 성을 떨친 미국 오페라 가수 Jill Gardner가 주기도문을 불러 하나님께 영광을 돌렸다. 현재 킴넷 선교단체의 회장을 맡고 있는 호 성기 목사의 사회로 시작된 2012년 KIMNET 10주년 선교대회 첫 무대는 한국 개신 교의 산증인 방지일 목사의 축사와 이어진 도

미니카에서 선교사역을 담당하고 있는 최광 규 선교사의 선교보고와 한기홍 목사(은혜한 인교회)의 메시지로 첫 일정을 마무리 했다. 세계 선교를 위한 “네트워크 전략회의” 중심으로 이뤄진 둘째날 집회는 11개 네트웍 별 사역발표와 협의 모임을 진행했다. 발표가 진행된 11개 네트웍은 ▲교회선교교육(이원 상) ▲EM선교(정민용) ▲지도력개발(최바 울) ▲선교지교회개척(양태철) ▲미디어선 교(이종문) ▲전문인선교(호성기) ▲교육선 교(송제임스) ▲세계캠퍼스사역(김아브라 함) ▲선교사지원사역(황선규) ▲중보기도 사역(김태진) ▲미전도종족사역 등이었으며 선교 네트워크 전략 중심으로 선교 사역 중심 의 주제 발표 후 네트워크 협의 모임 후 협의 사항등을 보고 등을 하였다. 셋째 날과 넷째 날 진행된 킴넷 선교집회는 “개교회 선교 잠재력 개발”을 주제로 선교 논의가 이뤄졌다. 양일간에 걸쳐 총 7개의 주 제를 다루는 선교 논의는 ▲선교가 중심된 교 회(발제: Bill Harding, 응답: 김경식) ▲지역 교회 선교적 사명과 실천(발제: 한기홍, 응답: 최동갑) ▲선교와 리더십(발제: 박희민, 응 답: 김용훈) ▲지역교회의 구체적 선교참여

(발제: 이상진, 응답: 윤명호) ▲선교로 하나 되게 하시는 성령과 기도(발제: 정인수, 응답: 오석환) ▲선교와 제자훈련(발제: 유승관, 응 답: 송상철) ▲지역교회의 선교 실천 방안(발 제: 임현수) 등으로 중소교회를 깨우는 너무 나 알찬 내용들로 참석자들에게 도전과 비전 으로 이어졌다. 선교대회 기간 중에는 또 킴넷 동역선교사 모임이 별도로 마련되어 있어 선교사들과 킴 넷간의 구체적인 협력 방안을 논의하기도 했 다. 선언문 채택으로 마지막 선교에 대한 논 의를 마친 이번 선교대회는 이어 목요일 밤에 500여명의 샬롯 미국 사회지도자와 아시아 민족 지도자들을 초정하여 개최 한 다민족선 교축제로 절정을 이루었다. 이와 같은 일정으 로 킴넷의 공식적인 선교대회를 마친 이후 샬 롯장롯교회에서는 20일(금)부터 22일(주일) 까지는 에스더기도운동 대표 이용희 교수가 주강사로 나서‘열방을 위한 기도성회’를 추가로 개최하여 샬롯장로교회의 선교대회가 최종적으로 마무리 되어 과거 어느 선교 대회 보다 더욱 알차고 깊이 있는 도전과 큰 비젼 을 주는 하나님의 큰 은총아래 이와 같은 큰 행사를 마칠 수 있었다. ■

Shen Yun—Reviving 5,000 years of civilization


FTER SELLING OUT shows at Lincoln Center this past January, New York-based Shen Yun Performing Arts is returning to Lincoln Center in April for a limited six-show engagement. Shen Yun cannot be seen in China today, where traditional culture has been mostly destroyed under communist rule. Yet, Shen Yun has become a global cultural sensation, bringing the virtues and wisdom of traditional Chinese culture to millions of people across four continents.

“A mesmerizing performance ...

reclaiming the divinely inspired cultural heritage of China.”

— Donna Karan, creator of DKNY

“An extraordinary experience ... exquisitely beautiful.”

— Cate Blanchett, Academy Award-winning actress
