Rev. Dr. Lien-Hwa Chow Memorial Foundation

The Rev. Dr. Lien-Hwa Chow Memorial Foundation was founded in 2018 to preserve the work and legacy of Rev. Dr. Chow (1920-2016). He was a pastor and theological teacher in Taiwan for over six decades, as well as a prolific writer and Bible translator. In recognition of Rev. Dr. Chow's dedication to Christian theology and cultural research, the Rev. Dr. Lien-Hwa Chow Memorial Foundation will continue to promote the faith, culture, and literary work he cared about. The website of this foundation serves as a platform to remember him through text and images, allowing people to know him better and, through him, to better understand Jesus, who guided his life.

From Auspicious Dragon to Christian Devil

The Metamorphosis of Myth into Faith

In his reflection on cultural heritage, Rev. Chow acknowledges that while no one has physically seen a dragon, it stands as a potent spiritual symbol for the Chinese, embodying a complex and profound mix of emotions—a reverence filled with honor and dignity. Rather than dismissing the dragon for its mythical nature, Rev. Chow proposes that we "value it doubly, as an integral part of our treasured traditions."
