Welcome to join our breakfast meeting

With Lennart Hamark vicar of Church of Sweden in Hong Kong
Monday, May 19 at 8.30 am – 10.00 am
at Landis Hotel

“The Silent Revolution”
– a search for an ethical compass and spiritual guidance in the world’s fastest growing economy

A presentation of the increasing Religious activities in China today by Mr (Rev) Lennart Hamark (M. Theol; Senior Chaplain, Church of Sweden in China & Hong Kong)

Parallell with the dramatic economic, social and infra-structural developments in the People’s Republic of China during the last twenty years there is also a more ’silent’ and less known, but yet remarkable, development going on, in every city as well as everywhere on the country side:
The increasing interest in religions and in philosophical and theological issues.

The churches are continuously overcrowded with people – every Sunday!
The Buddhist and Taoist temples also attract a rising number of well-educated young professionals.
Young intellectuals and artists meet privately to share spiritual and ethical experiences…

Lennart Hamark has followed the development of religions in China for the last 30 years.
As a staff of Christian Study Centre on Chinese Religion & Cultures in Hong Kong, he regularly visited local churches and temples, and met with religious leaders in late 1980’ and 90’s.

With unique video-clips and many stories, Lennart Hamark will share his insights.
