This article from Salt&Light, titled “How should a Christian celebrate Chinese New Year?” explores how Christians can honor God while preserving cultural and traditional Lunar New Year celebrations. Yin reminds readers that Christ must be the center of any festivities. “Being Chinese Christians, we should celebrate Chinese New Year to maintain our ethnic identity and heritage. But as Christians, our real identity is found in our relationship with God, our Creator and Maker,” Yin writes.

This article from Denison Forum, titled “Why we observe Black History Month: Tyrone Johnson discusses biblical equality,” shows how racial equality is a central part of biblical teachings. Tyrone Johnson and Jim Denison examine the role of believers and the institutional church during historical and contemporary moments – including America’s history of slavery and racism while underscoring the potential for reconciliation. “The conversation emphasizes the need for Christians to be actively involved in understanding and addressing racial injustices, encouraging listeners to engage with Black History Month and to reflect on their roles as agents of change,” Denison Forum writes.

    This article from Sports Spectrum, titled “49ers DE Arik Armstead seeks to 'bless others and glorify Him' ahead of Super Bowl LVIII,” commends defensive end Arik Armstead, a football player for the 49ers, for choosing Christ as his motivation for playing football and serving his community through philanthropy. Amstead credits his faith for giving him this platform and seeks to glorify God in everything. “That’s the foundation, my backbone, everything that I believe in,” Amstead said.

    Although every Hub article is selected to foster discussion about modern church structure, not every idea and opinion expressed in the linked articles may fully align with the views and mission of Koinesúnē Magazine. All the same, we seek to uplift and celebrate the different ministries working around the globe.
