Summary Note

Kenneth learned that a Chinese Christian community was divided over the issue of baptism: sprinkling, one-time immersion, three-time immersion. He gather the group and asked them to sit silently and think about the matter for about five minutes. Then he stood and addressed the issue, using three or four different ways of saying the same thing in Chinese dialects. They sat there and laughed at how they were fighting over different ways of doing the same thing. (Length 4:33)
