6. Other things we would like to tell you
You can bring megaphones, musical instruments, banners, placards, and so on during the parade.It's okay to have empty-handed.If you make your own original placard and bring it, you can appeal the gospel to many people.Anyone (unbelievers) is allowed to participate, and I hope that as many people as possible will gather to announce the birth, salvation, resurrection and re-appearance of the Lord.I think the Lord wants you to be a brave man of the gospel in the last days.Let's look forward to it!
7. What does it mean to hold a parade at Christmas?
The Parade is a declaration of the Lord's victory;worship and festival in the Bible.However, the image of Christmas in Japan has long been that of Christmas parties, Christmas cakes, Santa Claus and reindeer.It can be said that commercialization has a great influence on the retention of this image.But for us Christians, Christmas is a great opportunity to convey the message of Jesus Christ as a commemoration of the birth of Jesus Christ."Be wise to outsiders, and make full use of your opportunities," says the Bible.
Now is the time for us Christians to become one and act together to proclaim and preach the Good News.By gathering together and holding a parade, we have an opportunity to convey the meaning of true Christmas birth, resurrection, cross, salvation and the Lord's second coming to 99% of non-believers."Promote and deliver the word.Do it well, good or bad.We must bear in mind the mission of "Do your best, teach constantly, blame, admonish and exhort" (Timothy 4:2).Beyond commercialized images, Christmas parades are a great way to show our true faith.Let us act as messengers to spread Jesus Christ's message of love and salvation, bringing hope and peace to people's hearts.
8. Tract distribution during the parade
After the parade, please wait and distribute the tract at Ebisu Bridge in Namba for about 30 minutes.After that, we plan to conduct posting and missionary activities around downtown.We would appreciate it if you could participate in this activity.Also, we would appreciate it if you could bring each church's Christmas meeting guide for the flyers used to distribute the tract.If you don't have a flyer, we will prepare a flyer for the local people's Christmas.
