Distinguished guests, brothers and sisters in Christ,
After the successful exhibitions in Los Angels and Atlanta, the “Bible
Ministry Exhibition of the Church in China” is opening today in New
York. This is the first time that the Church in China presents an
exhibition abroad. It is a great event of historical significance for
the exchanges between the churches in China and in the US.
First of all, on behalf of CCC/TSPM, I would like to present my special
gratitude to Right Rev. Mark Sisk, bishop of New York and Very Rev.
James Kowalski, dean of the Cathedral, for permitting us to hold the
Bible Ministry Exhibition in this solemn sanctuary. Our sincere thanks
also goes to our honorary Chairpersons, Advisory Committee members and
New York City Host Committee members, co-chaired by Rev. John Hiemstra,
Dr. Bill Jefferson and Archdeacon Michael Kendall, for your warm
hospitality and wonderful work to make the exhibition possible. In the
meantime, I want to express my warm welcome and gratefulness to every
guest for being with us today.
