Be Imitators Of Rev George Leslie MacKay As He Is Of Christ

 

Reported by Lin Yi-yin

 

To commemorate the first Christian church, established at Tamsui of northern Taiwan by Rev George Leslie MacKay, Rev Hugh Ritchie and Dr Matthew Dickson on 10 April 1872, Tamsui Presbyterian Church of Taipei Presbytery plans to hold a thanks-giving service for the 145 anniversary of the church's mission on April 9.

In the meantime, People Rule Educational Foundation, a former pro-plebiscite group against the 4th nuclear power plant of Taiwan Electricity Company, launched its 100th itinerary parade, entitled "March forward to be a master!", a referendum-appealed pilgrimage of 23 kilometers from Tamsui to Wang-hua on March 9. Specially noteworthy is that this pilgrimage parade, initiated by a anti-nuclear group, stressing to imitate the evangelical spirit of Rev George Leslie MacKay to preach the good news to all Taiwanese people.

Stressing to imitate the evangelical spirit of Rev George Leslie MacKay, People Rule Educational Foundation, a former pro-plebiscite group against the 4th nuclear power plant of Taiwan Electricity Company, launched its 100th itinerary parade, entitled "March forward to be a master!", a referendum-appealed pilgrimage of 23 kilometers from Tamsui to Wang-hua on 9 March 2017.

This 100th parade started from the place where Rev George Leslie MacKay first arrived on Taiwan (i.e. Tamsui) and his knelt down and prayed statue was set up.
