Badminton, Thai food and faith – St Paul Thai Church – One Body, Many Members


Every week after the service we go eat
and then we start to play badminton and everybody gets to play – all genders,
nationalities, nobody is excluded from that group. We have a translating system here. We use the headsets. If the sermon is
in English the people who use the headset will hear the sermon
simultaneously in Thai and it’s vice versa. I always say the one main thing
that the most innate in a culture is the food. The food here is made by people
from Thailand. I think my favorite would be the Pad Thai. We come from all parts of the world, all parts of this country but yet and still we have one thing in common and that is our love of the Lord. More than any other congregation I’ve been part of this is family with, you
know, service and badminton, fellowship. Sometimes we don’t get out of here till
10:00 but it seems like it goes like that. It’s a congregation that
welcomes people. We welcome students from Thailand. People are very compassionate
about helping people. We focus quite a lot on young adults. About 30% of the
congregation is young adults. You gain new
experiences the way you worship with different kinds of people who don’t
speak the same language as you from different cultures. Think about the
pictures of … in the kingdom of God at one day that we’re all gonna worship one same God. Every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is the Lord.
