Song for SG55 – One

Enjoy this newly composed National Day song by HeartDriven Music, words and music by Ryan Kong.

 

Taken from the Song Story, shared by the composer, Ryan Kong:

This National Day, HeartDriven Music, Project Providence and the Alliance of Guest Workers Outreach (AGWO) are collaborating to release this song, ONE, as a rallying cry for every one of us to play our part in whatever capacity we can, as one nation. While we look forward to resuming our normal lives again, let us not forget the life lessons which Covid-19 has taught us. Let us not waste this opportunity to go the extra mile, to reach out in love beyond what is convenient for us.

Project Providence helps to house homeless and stranded foreigners in Singapore. AGWO aims to reach out to all guest workers in Singapore – to care for them and cater to their essential needs, while also adopting a spirit of hospitality for a welcoming environment that is free of discrimination and prejudice.

Loving Singapore Block by Block

On the eve of Singapore’s National Day long weekend, the Day of His Power event was held online for the first time. A number of notable church leaders in Singapore shared from their hearts about the state of the church and missions in Singapore. Pastor Lawrence Chua from Living Sanctuary Brethren Church shared the strategy of “Loving Singapore Block by Block” as his church has sought to be a good neighbour over the years.

Jason Wong from the fathering movement, Elijah 7000, also pondered about Singapore as a land of beautiful houses yet with broken homes. Truly, today more than ever, as believers, we need to be sharing the hope we have in Christ to rebuild the broken homes in our beautiful nation. Happy National Day Weekend to all Singaporeans!

Watch the full Day of His Power event recorded “live” here and read the article published by Thir.st for more insights on a segment of the event that focused on the family here.

Happy 55th National Day, Singapore!

 

First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Saviour. For kingship belongs to the Lord, and he rules over the nations. (1 Timothy 2:1-3; Psalm 22:28, ESV)

Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people he chose for his inheritance. Show proper respect to everyone, love the family of believers, fear God, honour the emperor. God opposes the proud but shows favour to the humble.” (Psalm 33:12; 1 Peter 2:17; James 4:6b, NIV).

“And this gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.” (Matthew 24:14, ESV)

Happy 55th National Day, Singapore!

 

An American in EAST

“The shocking hot weather”, and “pedestrians waiting for traffic lights to turn green even when there are no cars coming.” These are some of the “cultural shocks” Jessica Yi (USA), then 23, first experienced in Singapore. And her favourite thing to eat? “Bubble tea,” she replies, “Sure we have it back home but the bubble tea here is a whole new level!”

Jessica came to Singapore to intern with the ACTS Ministry International (AMI) “Since I would be here for a year, I decided to study at EAST, which I found on the internet, to equip myself,” she says.

Vision and Worship

 

We just had Chapel yesterday with our faculty, Rev Dr Raymond Song speaking about the link between the vision for our lives and our worship unto God.

If the vision we have for our lives is to honor and glorify God, we will live our lives as pleasing offering unto Him.

Romans 12:1 describes this as “to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God–this is your true and proper worship”.

The Lord Himself be our Vision and Guide, as we follow Him daily.
