The Priestly Leadership of the Ascended Christ
Michael Jin Choi Torch Trinity Graduate University
This Christ's leadership is typically conceived as a directive to be imitated perhaps because Christians often situate themselves in the historical narrative settings of the Gospels when believers were not yet indwelt by the Holy Spirit. This paper investigates the other side of Christ's leadership which cannot be imitated by creatures; the ascended Christ's ongoing priestly leadership adds cooperation as yet another dimension. Christ invites cooperation from his bride because she is already endowed with the dynamic provided by the Holy Spirit, when he mediates Christ's presence to her. While Christ's ongoing leadership is through intercession each believer is called to participate in the edification of the church by pursuing three areas: Obedience with other believers for fruitfulness, intimacy with God through faith, and overcoming trials with unwavering hope in the future glory. These three emphases are demonstrated by three different New Testament writers, John, Paul and the writer of Hebrews.
Key Words: Christ's intercession, life as worship, sanctification, intimacy with God, love one another, enduring in hope, overcoming trials

Emotion is directly or indirectly related with health. Music has long been utilized in the realm of healing and health across times and cultures. Some therapeutic functions attributed to music are discussed. Emotion and spirituality are correlated. Music seems to have its own emotional content and in many instances may encourage spiritual involvement. Music has several roles in the spiritual realm: means of expression, channel of spirituality, and enrichment of spirituality. Due to music's complexity and variety, it is very difficult to form a set of standards to govern our listening choices. However, it is very important for us to grasp whether music is spiritual help or harmful. Music education for congregations should be a required component in the church. Discernment and careful planning and implementation of the music ministry of the church are needed.

The purpose of this qualitative study was to examine the perspectives of seminarians on woman leadership in the church. For this study, five seminarians of a seminary in Seoul, Korea, were interviewed. The participants consisted of two male and three female seminarians from different degree programs and countries. It analysed the position of seminarians on women's ordination and leadership in the church, the impact of seminary life on their perspectives, and their views on empowerment of women. The study found that even though the majority of the participants claimed to support woman leadership in the church, their claim contradicted their views when the issue was applied at a personal level. For instance, the male participants did not agree that their wives could be their pastors. The participants, nevertheless, agreed that the seminary had enhanced their appreciation of woman leadership. Every participant identified women's identity to be the key factor to women's empowerment.
