Opportunities to Love Better

Design: Blessed Ong

 

Is life not full of opportunities for learning love? Every man and woman every day has a thousand of them. The world is not a playground; it is a schoolroom. Life is not a holiday, but an education. And the one eternal lesson for us all is how better we can love.
~ Henry Drummond

“When Jeremy Chew’s wife passed away from an aggressive form of cervical cancer in August 2018, his world fell into darkness. … An Old Testament lecturer at the East Asia School of Theology, Chew had been teaching for years about the suffering of characters like Hannah and Job. Yet, it was only in his personal grief that the Biblical stories hit home,” wrote Gracia Lee of Jeremy’s journey of faith.

Read the moving testimony of an EAST alumnus and resident faculty, Dr Jeremy Chew, on the passing of his dear wife and its aftermath. He composes and sings songs in worship of our God through such season of lamenting as acts of renewed faith. He recently cut a Mandarin album with songs on human grief and God’s goodness. Selah.
