Homesickness. That icky yearning for home that rests in the pit of your stomach. Have you ever been far away from your family for the holidays? Did you miss great-Aunt Mavis' infamous perfection salad this past year?
If you're an international living in a new place, you may be away from your extended family, traditions, food, and even holidays. So the TIF family would like to invite you to the annual Lunar New Year Party on Saturday, February 1, at 5:30PM in Fellowship Hall.
Guiyun and her team of skilled volunteers will make homemade dumplings. Try a new Asian recipe, or dish up one of your favorites. Our friends Kai and Yuling are planning some fun activities for us. Friendly folks will have Fellowship Hall festooned with vibrant red decorations. Martin Whittaker will return to his much-acclaimed role of emcee. Maranatha Chung, a pastor at Northeast Community Church, will speak, and talented composer Kai-Young Chan will provide traditional erhu music as a festive backdrop to the evening.
Every year we have new people, so come and help them get connected at Tenth. Bring a side dish, dessert, or fruit to share with new friends. Get a view for what God is doing among the nations right here in Philadelphia. This is a great time to meet our international friends and learn about the traditions surrounding the holiday.
Please RSVP to Kari. If you'd like to lend a hand to set up, clean up, or cook, let us know. But, please, hold the perfection salad!
