On April 30, 2019, the young pastoral staff of Shanghai visited places commemorating Lu Xun, the leading figure in modern Chinese literature, in order to celebrate the centenary of the May Fourth Movement. The May 4th Movement was an anti-imperialist, cultural, and political movement that grew out of student protests in Beijing on 4 May 1919. They protested against the Chinese government's weak response to the Treaty of Versailles, especially the sieding of Chinese territory to foreign powers.   

According to the WeChat account, "Shanghai Christianity", more than 40 young staff traced the footsteps of the great thinker and revolutionist in Shanghai, in order to understand his life's goal of "offering my blood to the Yellow Emperor" and his nationalism, in spite of difficulties and evil. 

Led by Rev. Xu Yulan, chairman of the Shanghai Municipal Three-Self Patriotic Association, they paid a visit to the Shanghai Lu Xun Museum, Lu Xun's Final Residence and the Site of Uchiyama Bookstore where Lu often purchased books, met friends, and even took refuge. 

Chen Wei, pastor of Jesus Church in Changdi Village, Fengxian District, said, "Lu Xun abandoned medicine for literature to awaken the souls of sleeping Chinese people. While passing on Chinese culture, the new generation of young pastors should not forget their initial determination and be examples to the flock!"
