Day 2 - AsIPA 5th General Assembly Davao, Philippines

Bishop Julius sharing his thought with the Singaporean delegates

Davao City: Day 2 of the AsIPA 5th Assembly. Wednesday, 21st October 2009 started off with the Bible Enthronement followed by Gospel sharing in small mixed groups comprising members from different countries. Here, members had the opportunity to experience building relationship within small Christian communities of international representation. They also experienced the seven steps sharing of the Word which is an approach in bible sharing in SCC/BEC gatherings. It is important that we listen and share collectively the Word of God and be shaped by it as a community.

The afternoon session was another sharing session of delegates in regional/country groupings. Malaysia, represented by delegates from the Diocese of Sandakan and the Archdiocese of Kuala Lumpur together with delegates from the Archdiocese of Singapore shared on two issues;

  • How far has the Eucharistic Celebrations as breaking of bread and Word has been realized in the life of SCCs/BECs?
  • What perceptible characteristics of change do you find as a result of years of work done in your SCCs/BECs in the field of political participation, social transformation, facing fundamental difficulties, environmental issues, leadership style and etc.
The gist of the sharing is about building up people and as such harmonious relationship ought to be established at all levels more so with the clergy and laity.
