Update: David Virtue’s story says that Archbishop Chung said: “You have uprooted the old ways of doing church; you have torn down many temples where you used to worship the false gods of our modern world. You have destroyed many egoistic, self proclaimed and self seeking so called leaders who led you to the slaughter house. You have overthrown the devil from taking the heavenly throne.” His reference to the devil was not in reference to Rwanda.
This morning in Houston, Bishops Murphy and Kolini presented for about an hour and took a couple hours of questions. The message from these men is that efforts at reconciliation are ongoing, but that the way forward remains unclear. How this matches up with the message tonight from Archbishop Yong Ping Chung is hard to see.
According to tweets from tonight’s meeting, Yong’s remarks included:
God is asking the AM to enlarge their tents for global mission. Hard work is ahead. (The AMiA) needs to go rescue those in darkness.
So there is to be no turning back from the global mission society concept. What it will be tethered to is totally unclear right now. Yong announced a change in the AMiA’s reach:
Go global! The 130,000,000 unreached becomes the 6 billion.
David Roseberry said that Yong blamed the Internet and the devil for the damage to theAM.
