In conjunction with Chinese New Year, DUCF had 'SHING SHONG SHANG Day' !!!

Today we had a special presentation about how the Chinese characters relate back to the Bible !!
(bananas in the world UNITE!!!)


As we promised earlier, CF begun at 12.45 pm.

David organised an ice-breaker called 'Bing and Bong.' This game involves two objects, which in this case are books. The hard covered one is called Bong. The soft covered one, Bing.

Basically, Bing and Bong is handed over the selected two people who sit next two each other in the circle. Bing is passed anti-clockwise around the circle. Bong is passed clockwise.

To make things simpler, let's call :

-the selected person who has Bing : A

As A passes the book to the person next to him, he is to say "This is a Bing."
The person next to them (B) will then ask "What?" to A. Then A will reply "A Bing".
Next, B will pass it to the person next to him (C) and say "This is a Bing."
C will then ask B "What?". B will then turn to A and ask him "What?".
In reply, A will say "A Bing". Then, B will turn to C and say "A Bing".
Then C will pass it to the next person, and the whole process repeats.

{ We know it's a little TINY weeny bit CoNfUsInG but that's the beauty of it.}

The same process applies to the passing of Bong as well.
At some point, Bing and Bong will cross paths, and that's when it gets REALLY really REALLY fun (and even more confusing!!!) :P

The original circle...

But no worries! Because the circle soon grew to this...

Then we moved on to worship !!! This time, it was led by Kah Hoe and his guitarist Keith!!

The songs we sang:
1. Hari Ini
2. Open Up The Gates
3. Here I Am To Worship
4. Still

Then we moved on to today's special message by Joel..
He drew a few examples of the Chinese characters that was related to the Bible.
{But bring a nearly 17 year old banana, he had to enlist the help of Kah Hoe, Aaron & Jen Wei to draw the characters properly... =) }
He explained how each part of a character has its own meaning all relating to some significant Bible events such as Adam and Eve.
