Chinese Government meets underground church leaders

A secret meeting between Chinese officials and leaders of the banned underground Protestant Church has marked the first significant step towards reconciliation in decades.

In what would seem to be a massive change of official policy the Chinese Government seems to be "…anxious to work out the way to go forward. They have understood that the Protestant Church is not an opposition force but a force for stability and harmony.” The number of Christians is estimated by officials to be about 130 million, compared to just 74 million members of the Communist Party.
If this is true, the words 'tipping point' and 'miraculous' would not be out of place.

However, if reports here and here from less than two weeks ago are anything to go by, it might take a while for any change of policy to work its way down through the system.

Keep praying for China, its government, its people and its churches.
