Unos pensamientos de la Asamblea Obra Hispana

These words can be found translated at the end of the blog.
He observado que no tenemos un blog en español. La semana pasado estaba en San Diego para asistir la Obra Hispana Asamblea/Convención, y por esta razón, voy a escribir in español. La tema del evento era “Celebremos lo que creemos” y el verso en que pensamos era “Cristo, Alfa y Omega” Apocalipsis 1:8.
Quiero compartir unas palabras que he oído en la Asamblea, y mis pensamientos sobre las palabras.
Una señal de un sermón buenísima es que cada persona que la oiga se siente como el sermón estaba escrito específicamente para su propio. Cada persona puede tomar lo que se necesita oír y lo que va a ayudar su propia. En las palabras de Dr. Samuel Pagán, yo oía muchas palabras que hablaban a mí específicamente.
Dr. Samuel Pagán, nos daba unos presentaciones muy interesantes cada día. Un día, él nos decía “he estudiado con palestinos y todos no son terroristas. Todos tienen los mismos tribulaciones.”
Él nos decía “salvación es respirar.” Salvación es tomar un respira gigante. La salvación va a sentir como desinflar y vivir llena de vida.
“Cada cultura comunica diferente.” Necesitamos entender lo que nuestros culturas son diferentes y no tenemos todo en común, pero si nosotros oigamos tanto, podemos entender.
En una oración él decía “tú eres el Dios de los inmigrantes. Tú eres el Dios de los pobres” de los ricos, de todos iguales.
Y por fin, nos decía “Dios llama a nosotros a ser la gente de la paz.” Estas palabras hablaban en voz alto a mí. Somos aquí para ser parte del mundo, para tener un impacto positivo en nuestras iglesias, pero más importante, en nuestras cultures y comunidades. Somos llamadas a tratar toda la gente del mundo con respeto y con igualdad, sin dar en cuenta su raza, color de su piel, país de origen, o situación económica.
Esto es nuestro Dios: un Dios de los inmigrantes, un Dios que nos guía a perdonar, y aceptar a todos. Esto es nuestro Dios.
 
 
Some thoughts about the Obra Hispana Assembly
I’ve noticed that we don’t have a blog in Spanish. Last week I was in San Diego attending the Obra Hispana Assembly and Convention, that reason, I am going to write in Spanish. The theme of the event was “We celebrate our Creator” y the main verse was Revelation 1:8: Christ, Alfa and Omega.
I want to share some words that I heard throughout the week, and my thoughts on those words.
A sign of a good sermon is that each person listening feels like the sermon was written specifically for himself or herself. Each person can take what he or she needs to hear and that which will help him or her most. In the words of Dr. Samuel Pagán I heard a lot of things that spoke specifically to me.
Dr. Samuel Pagán gave many interesting presentations throughout the week. One day he told us that he had studied with Palestinians, and they were not all terrorists. All of us have had the same tribulations and trials.
He told us that salvation is to breathe. Salvation is to take a deep breath. Salvation will feel like the release of a breath of a life well lived.
Each culture communicates differently. We need to understand that our cultures are different and that we don’t have everything in common, but if we listen enough we will be able to understand each other.
In a prayer, he said “you are the God of the immigrants. You are the God of the poor” and of the rich, of everyone equally.
And finally, he told us that God calls to us to be people of peace. These words spoke very strongly to me. We are here to be part of the world, to have a positive impact on our churches, but more importantly, en our cultures and in our communities. We are called to treat all the people of the world with respect and with equality, without considering their race, skin color, country of origin, or economic situation.
This is our God: a God of immigrants, a God that guides us to pardon, and accept everyone.
This is our God.
