Day 24/100: Located in Yunnan’s capital, in downtown Kunming, the Trinity International Church was built in 1903. Despite issues of religion, the Chinese government uses its power to control organizations (churches, temples, mosques, etc.) to avoid such organizations that could be used in any way against the ruling Communist Party of China. It isn’t as black and white as many outsiders believe, but as long as the Chinese government sanctions such organizations, they are open and free in some ways and yet so controlled and censored in other ways. Not to deny the facts of ongoing issues of religion, the fact that the church is sanctioned by the Chinese government, the fear of attending church is less prevalent. 

This church of Gothic architectural style has been the office of Yunnan Branch of the “Three-Self” Patriotic Movement Committee of Protestant Churches of China, and the Christian Association of Yunnan Province. Marking it’s 111th year, the church has gone through many changes. In 1966, the building was burned down and later demolished in 1997. In February, 1997: the church was renamed — “三一国际礼拜堂 — Sanyi (trinity) International Protestant Church”. However, with the help of the local government and the Christian Council, they received a new property in which the 8-story building was reconstructed and completed in December, 2004. // Note: Three “Selfs”: self-governing, self-supporting, and self-propagating. — #100happydays #day24 #gothic #architecture #kunming #yunnan #china #culture #history  (at Kunming, Yunnan)
