In this integration effort, Leviticus 19 uses the theme of holiness while Ezra 6 uses the theme of purity. This paper will show that although these are mutually supportive and not contradictory terms, there are extreme differences in usage in Leviticus 19 and Ezra 6. This extreme usage leads to a very different nature of integration between Leviticus 19 and Ezra 6. Leviticus 19 promotes ethically-based integration, while Ezra 6 promotes cult-based integration. This fundamental difference at the same time indicates a change or development of thought in the priestly tradition. Using a literature based qualitative research, this paper will show two integration strategies in the two post-exilic priestly tradition.</em></p> 2023-11-23T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Duma Indah Sinaga Penerapan Pelayanan Diakonia Pada Perayaan Pangkahingisam Di Gereja Toraja Mamasa Jemaat Rante Klasis Salumokanan 2023-08-28T00:17:11+00:00 Neneng Andriani Soviyanti Bura Febrianto Randan Parinding <p><em>The author raised this article because he saw that the problem of implementing diakonia services at the pangkahingisam celebration was that it was no longer in accordance with the real concept of pangkahingisam, namely providing diakonia services for congregation members who do not have land, and caring for each other. The purpose of this research is to provide an explanation to congregation members that diakonia services during the Pangkahingisam celebration are very important so that all congregation members feel shared prosperity when the harvest arrives, both those who have land and those who do not. The author uses qualitative research methods through literature study, observation and interviews. The data analysis used is data reduction, data presentation and interpretation. The conclusion of this research shows that the implementation of diakonia services at the Pengkahingisam celebration in the Rante Congregation has not been carried out well, so the congregation members need to review the actual concept of pangkahingam, especially in the concept of diakonia services.</em></p> 2023-11-23T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Neneng Andriani Upaya Guru PAK Terhadap Penanganan Masalah Mengatasi Kesulitan Belajar Siswa 2023-09-14T05:03:43+00:00 Petrus Bobii Kalis Stevanus Chandra Kirana Luhur Fianus Tandiongan <p><em>Difficulty in learning is not uncommon among students. Learning difficulties faced by students at SMP Negeri 2 Tigi Barat, Central Papua, include reading delays that negatifly impact academic achievement. One of the learning difficulties students face is reading difficulties. This paper aims to describe the influence of PAK (Pendidikan Agama Katolik or Catholic Religious Education) teachers in addressing the issue of reading delays. To address this objective, the researcher employed a quantitative method using a questionnaire to determine the level of problem-solving in addressing students' learning difficulties, particularly in the seventh grade. The research results show a significant level with 52 respondents, where the critical value (r tabel) is 0.279, while R Square is 0.738, indicating a moderately significant category. Reading difficulties can be a challenge, but with the right approach, support, and persistence, many students can overcome this issue and improve their reading skills. It is important to remember that every student is a unique individual and may require different amounts of time to overcome their reading difficulties. Therefore, PAK teachers need to provide additional hours or reading lessons to address reading delays, thereby achieving the learning goals of their students. It is advisable to conduct regular reading exercises, ideally every day, to ensure consistency in reading practice. Additionally, involving parents in the student's reading learning process is equally important. They can assist by reading books, discussing stories, and providing moral support.</em></p> 2023-11-23T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Kalis Stevanus, Petrus Bobii, Chandra Kirana Luhur, Fianus Tandiongan Ketentuan Hukum Dalam Keluaran 22:6-8 Tentang Kehidupan Bersama Mengenai Harta Kepemilikan 2023-09-11T23:18:44+00:00 Abraham Pakpahan <p><em>The Israel community is a community that has a close relationship with one another. To regulate the life of this community, of course, a legal provision is applied to regulate the life of the Israel community. The Covenant Code Agreement (Ex. 22:6-8) are provisions that regulate property that is lost or stolen when the item is entrusted to another person. The Covenant Code in this text have case examples that illustrate the conflicts that occurred until the resolution of the problem in this case. The cases that occur in the text specifically provide cases of steps to resolve conflicts between people to prevent relationships that have the potential to be damaged due to loss of property. The purpose of this research is to understand the text with a more specific case when compared to Ex. 20:15 (decalog ‘not steal’). This research was carried out using a literature study using a critical historical approach and arrived at the conclusion that when someone has been given responsibility, the responsibility is not only towards each other but also towards God and to build harmonious relationships with others.</em></p> 2023-11-23T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Abraham Pakpahan Pastoral Konseling Anak Korban Keluarga Perselingkuhan 2023-10-02T04:17:55+00:00 Citra Ayu Susanto Yanto Paulus Hermanto <p><em>Infidelity in the family has a profound impact on children, especially in the context of the church community.

One of the problems that often arises from this is hypertension which according to statistical data is a disease that is classified as a silent killer if not treated immediately. Even young age is not a guarantee that someone will not suffer from hypertension. Lack of awareness that the body should be looked after and presented as a holy sacrifice before God is a trigger for an unhealthy lifestyle. Hypertension is a disease that is often found among the congregation in a church, and the church as God's representative must be able to provide pastoral counseling assistance for congregations who suffer from this disease and provide solutions for the congregation and their families.</em></p> 2023-11-23T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Rinaldi Dharmawan, Yanto Paulus Hermanto Menjadi Gereja Yang Ramah: Telaah Kritis Keterlibatan Generasi Z Dalam Pelayanan Di Gereja 2023-10-17T05:19:09+00:00 Marchelin Sarubang <p><em>In service, hospitality is needed as a bridge to build good relationships between generations.
