From "Poison Man" to Pastor

Sorcerer. Shaman. Witch doctor. In other parts of the world, these are terms by which Kiung would be identified. But in his village in New Ireland, he was known as the “poison man”—one who uses incantations and potions to cast spells to help, harm, or kill people.

For years, Kiung was regularly called upon to use his poison on others. But under that shroud of darkness, he could not find the answers he sought for life and contentment. That’s when he started dabbling in “religion.” But the local religion is merely a list of laws and regulations: prayers to say, songs to sing, and works to do in order to appease God, gain His blessing, and maybe go to heaven.

“When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, ‘Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.’”
Luke 2:15 (NIV)

Peace on Earth, a Christmas Message from Bruce

Dear Friends,

I suppose this has been the wish of mankind since the fall of man. But history shows our human inability to forge lasting peace. Peace occasionally breaks out amid the relentless tumults of war. It is confined and temporary, with war often waging just beyond our horizon—or within our own hearts.

 During the American Civil War, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow reflected, “ ‘There is no peace on earth,’ I said. For hate is strong, and mocks the song of peace on earth, goodwill to men.” As he looked at the toll that war took on his family, his community, and his nation, he concluded that on earth, peace is not found. But he concluded his poem “I Heard the Bells” in faith, saying, “God is not dead: nor doth He sleep; The wrong shall fail, the right prevail, with peace on earth, goodwill to men!”
