Nava Jeeyan
Pr. Fernando describes a followup to an earlier reported beginning of a multi-cultural South Asian Church, and the plans to continue expanding this congregation further. The church is named "Nava Jeeyan" - which means "New Life." Currently the church is sharing space in Christ the King Lutheran Church in Kendall Park. Bible Studies are being offered, and the church has begun to receive non-Christian friends. The congregation is beginning to grow slowly but steadily. Pr. Fernando and a Parishioner of the church. Mr. Devakadaksham, share experiences. Hear the touching story of a 4 year old girl, afraid for her father about to undergo surgery, who went about singing a song she had learned in church which said "Do not fear, do not fear." There are questions from the audience about Christianity in different Asian groups, its use of the English language, the introduction of Indian Music and dance, and other interesting facts.
Presenters:
The Pr. Edwin Fernando Arumanayagam, Mission Developer; and Mr. Devakadaksham

Modern Art and the Church
The Church has been reluctant to embrace Modern Art forms for the decoration of its worship space because of the secularization of art and artists in the “Age of Reason.”  Dr. Froehlich describes an experiment to integrate Modern Art into a church building which Fr. Devémy, a former patient and later the local priest of a Sanatorium community at Plateau d’Assy high in the French Alps, planned in the 1930s.  Together with Fr. Couturier, a Domican friar, he asked eminent artists such as Fernand Léger, Georges Rouault, Paul Bonnard, Henri Matisse, and Marc Chagall to contribute original art works.  The result was surprising.  The decoration of the finished church shows how Modern Art can indeed become the vehicle of the Gospel, and how the confrontation with the Christian faith can in turn be a spiritual challenge for modern artists.
Presenter:
Dr. Karlfried Froehlich, Princeton Theological Seminary, Lecturer in Theology and Communication

For Jesus spent time - not with the wealthy or the privileged, but with the broken, the hungry and the poor. And as if that wasn't bad enough, He commanded His followers to do the same. This was, and can be even today, problematic for some people. And the Good News? It is the same: Jesus lives! This good news refers to the future, and reminds us that Jesus is still alive and active today. It reminds us that we are still in an ongoing relationship with Him."

Mission to the Gulf Coast from PoP Church

Lynn and Mark Denker, along with 16 others who were members of the PoP Church Mission Team to the Gulf Coast, present an inspiring account of their experiences. The team was in the Gulf Coast for 6 days. During this time, 12 worked with Camp Noah (an ELCA VBS program for children who are victims of Katrina or other natural disasters), and another 6 worked with Camp Coast Care, an organization founded by the Lutheran Episcopal Services in Mississippi dedicated to creating new housing for displaced persons who have lost their homes. They presented a program of slides (several are reproduced in the "Listen OnLine" page) and commentary about their trip; the
camaraderie with those they met; and observed how much they themselves were changed by the experience. It was a mission that none of the participants will ever forget.

Mary Liz-Ivins is the Principal of Notre Dame High School, Lawrenceville, NJ, and discusses the various pressures and concerns facing teenagers while in High School. Ms. Liz-Ivins examines
how parents can stay connected and even aid in their child's learning to cope with the many social pressures of today's teenage society. How to keep a conversation going with your High School Student as well as sorting through the responsibilities for different levels of decisions which they - and their parents - must make every day are two of the topics explored. Current realities of school socialization, recreation, and the internet are explored and practical suggestions provided. (Introduction by Larry Klein, Prince of Peace Church Council Member)

Dana Dreibelbis "A Medical Mission in India"

While at Princeton University, Dana Dreibelbis was a Fellow in the Princeton-in-Asia Program. As part of his studies, he took an internship at the St. Luke's Hospital in Vengurla, India, where he has developed a lasting love and respect for this institution. He and his family took a recent trip to Vengurla to renew old acquaintenances and to understand the work of the hospital in 2007. His Forum reviews the Community at St. Luke's and its service to the community in which it resides. He raises the question as to what it might mean to build a relationship between us and these Christians ministering on India's western Coast. Through pictures and discussion, Dana Dreibelbis gives insights into the difficulties of giving adequate health care (especially in the areas of childbearing) in the less affluent communities a country of 1.3 billion people. At the same time he develops an inspiring picture of the dedication of Indian Christians ministering in love and compassion to their community.

Mike Fabian "Hollywood Jesus "

Home and Family Ministry Consultant, Mike Fabian, explores the images of Jesus that Hollywood - and Christian Art through the Centuries - has created for us. Often the image portrayed depicts an emphasis on some aspect of Jesus's life or ministry. Because there is no known actual drawing of Him, what ethnic characteristics have been used in creating these pictures, and are they accurate at least to the group they represent? What is the Shroud of Turin, and how have artists used it to attempt other recreations of our Lord's appearance. And then Hollywood, has had a varied offering, depicting a suffering Jesus, a triumphant Jesus or a Soft-spoken kindly person. Mike Fabian considers all these possibilities, and offers whatever factual information is available and stimulates us to think about what the real physicial appearance of our Lord might have been.

Mike Fabian "Who wrote the Bible?"

Home and Family Ministry Consultant and Biblical Historian, Mike Fabian, traces the information sources and time lines of the writers of the Bible. How did we get from the Oral Tradition to the printed Bible as we know it today? When didwritten language appear and how might that have influenced the sacred writings? Consider the asynchrony - in some cases - between our Faith Traditions and a lack of demonstrable support for a particular belief? In recent times there have been scientific advances which have been able to correlate the Bible with actual places - the science of Biblical Archaeology. And then there is the effect of different translations of the Bible on our understanding. Throughout it all, we feel the presence of the Holy Spirit guiding this most complicated complex process past the limitations of humankind.

Cindy Schwartz "Spiritual Direction - how it differs from therapy "

Dr. Cindy Schwartz is both a psychologist and a spritual director. In her forum, she explains how a prayer experience during a retreat in Tennesee opened the opportunity for her to embrace this new direction of ministry. Later she attended the San Francisco Theological Seminary where she received a diploma in the Art of Spiritual Direction. Dr. Schwartz explains how we are called to be involved in each others' lives in many different ways - through the traditions of our denomination; from a small group to which we might belong - perhaps a Bible Study group, and there are many others. Guidance can come from people to whom we are very close, and also from those whom we consult and who have been called to be Spiritual Directors. She emphasizes in her description that ultimately all guidance comes not from people, but from God. Those who guide are only helping us improve our own relationship and closeness to our Lord.
