This is the west, not the east.
Immigrants often run the church as if they
were still in the East. One benefit cited by immigrants is that keeping
the perspective, culture, traditions, and values of the east fosters
an ideal enviornment for attracting and developing new immigrants to
the church. Is it really though?
A college graduate comments; "I went to the cantonese service
and I feel like I don't fit in. The irony is that i grew up in Hong
Kong. The chinese they use is so old that the people living in Hong
Kong today wouldn't even understand their words."
