Time flies. At the inauguration ceremony on 17 December last year, Lumina was said to be starting small much like the "manger" for the birth of Jesus. In God's hand, this modest beginning could change the world.
God has been gracious to Lumina. We have held a number of open seminars on seeing the world through the lens of faith. Wingtai with Dr. CK Yam and Dr. Dorcas Yung kicked off a seminar using that theme. Prof. Mary Poplin from Claremont Graduate University helped us face the challenges of global worldviews. Prof. Scott Moreau from Wheaton College encouraged us to develop intercultural literacy in leadership. In the coming public seminars on 3-4 Jan 2017 we shall host Dr. Carver Yu and Wingtai on worldviews in conflict and Dr. Max Lin and Dr. Ng Shu Chung on integrating faith into sciences and humanities.
Daring to be different is a road less travelled. While most seminaries focus on faith as a domain of study and secular universities emphasize knowledge and skill, Lumina builds a ladder to connect both: Seeing the world through Christ and seeing Christ in the world. Lumina has launched two diploma programs: “Christian faith and contemporary culture” and “Future leaders: Integrating Christian worldviews and learning”. We just finished the first two courses and another two are coming up in the next quarter. It is not a felt need among the Christians here, but the cultural mandate of God in the beginning and the great commission of God in Christ Jesus are in fact of vital importance. You can join or recommend our coming courses through our website: www.lumina.org.hk.
