By Wafangdian Church, August 01, 2018 09:08 AM
On July 21, 2018, Liaoning Wafangdian Church held an award ceremony for believers who were active in copying the Bible by hand and calligraphy activities.
In 2013, the church established a culture month to promote the sicinization of Christianity. It has held Bible handwriting competitions, calligraphy classes, and a series of activities in culture months.
In the eight-week-long calligraphy course, many students gained unique faith experience through the collision of traditional Chinese culture and Christian faith.
Many believers keep transcribing the Bible and a large portion of them have copied about twenty or thirty notebooks.
