due east

throughout the month of may, new york’s channel thirteen is presenting “due east” covering a range of topics regarding asian america. i’ve always enjoyed lazy saturdays where i’ve accidentally stumbled upon an asian american presentation on that network. if you’ve the time or tivo:

The Asian-American population grew sevenfold from 1970 to 2000, rising from 1.4 to 11.9 million (4 percent of the American population). With some 30 national-origin groups, the larger Asian Pacific American community is one of glorious variety. Asian culture is changing mainstream America as it becomes more pervasive and the acclimation of Asians more complete than that of other immigrants, according to a 2004 article published by the American Sociological Association.

“Change is good, especially when we consider the countless contributions the Asian Pacific American community has made to the United States over many years,” said Kathy Dobkin, senior producer and programmer for Thirteen. “Because this community is such an integral and vital part of America’s shared culture and history, Thirteen’s annual DUE EAST celebration of Asian Pacific American heritage is really a celebration for all of us, regardless of our ethnic or cultural background.”

[american born chinese pastor]
seeks to be that third place for those who are american born chinese [abc] in ministry.
here we may explore issues unique to the chinese church and doing ministry in that context
expand the intersection of asian american culture and christian faith
or simply expose what goes on in the mind of this abcpastor

this may be a bit ambitious or even naiive but i do hope that through the posts we can bring together different faith communities, passions for the advancement of the Gospel and the equipping of the body of Christ.

if you are an abc pastor or have any suggestions or would like to contribute to make this space evolve, just comment.
