Welcome to International Student Gathering, an official student group at UC Irvine.
Happy Chinese New Year! This past weekend we continued with our Encounter with Jesus and learned from how Jesus called the first disciples. Afterwards we had a good time making dumpling (some of us for the first time) to welcome the Year of the Pig together. We also had another dinner with our friends a few days later… all in all a non-stop celebration of Chinese New Year!
On a perfect weather day, we ventured out to the Bolsa Chica State Beach for a time of evening bonfire, good food, and an encouragement from our speaker Steve to seek God and not living like the rich fool (c.f. Luke 12:13-21). We also sang a few songs. Many of our friends got to try roasted marshmallow and Korean dried filefish (Jwipo) for the first time!
This past Wednesday the ISG group met over dinner and heard an interesting talk about the philosophical framework towards believing in a God who is non-physical but also immaterial. It was a good time to take a break from school, enjoy some good food and discuss important topics with friends. See you next time!
