U Matters - 18 Sep 2014

by Greg Anderson on September 18, 2014

The founder of Union Church, James Legge, turns 200 next year. I am in London, pouring through the archives at SOAS, where the Legge papers are kept. So far I have gone through eight boxes of his sermons, letters, and Union stuff. My admiration for the man knows no bounds.

He wrote of Hong Kong in 1861, "I found all about thronging multitudes. My soul was saddened at the sight of so many sheep without a shepherd." For 170 years Union has been inviting people to meet Jesus, the great shepherd. Invite someone to the Alpha banquet, to church, or share your faith with a friend. What a joy we have to present Jesus Christ to the thronging multitudes of Hong Kong!
