Theme: Thy Name
We have our own names, and they mostly bear expectations from our parents, elders or even ourselves. By recognizing the names, we get to know each other andit is a way of building relationship. However, does God have a name? What’s His name? And how do we know God?
When God called Moses to lead Israel out of Egypt, God said His name to Moses on the Horeb. He said, “ I AM WHO I AM” (Exodus 3:14) God’s name reveals to us : He is the one who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty. We were all created by God, and that’s why John Calvin argued that one could not truly know God without knowing oneself and that one couldn't truly know oneself without knowing God.
This year is the 500th anniversary of Protestant Reformation. “2017 I love Taiwan Mission Camp – Thy Name” is going to begin! Hope we can serve with ecumenical partners during the journey of ILT together, and to know each other, to know ourselves so that we can know more about the one who creates this land and humans, our God.
