I’ve been asked to be the speaker for a youth retreat for Atlanta Chinese Church. And as I’m drawing up material and prepping, I’d like to solicit the blogosphere for advice in how to approach young Chinese American Christians. The age range seems to be middle to high school and they tend to be generally affluent and well educated. As a Korean American, I guess I want to make sure I don’t make too many assumptions and am aware of any nuances in the subculture.
Currently, my direction of talks are fairly “big picture” of the Christian life, but would like to know how to approach issues of ethnicity and hopefully challenge the “idols” of the Chinese culture, if they are different from the ones I know from the Korean culture, I’d love to know.
So, any advice will be appreciated. And I’ll let you know how it goes! The retreat dates are Dec. 31-Jan.3, and I have a total of six sessions to do, which I will be surprised if I don’t lose my voice by the end, I will be very surprised! Thanks in advance~
