Mindset of Hope in Crisis

At an online Chapel organised by the EAST Student Council on 25 March 2020, the President of EAST, Rev Dr Chan Chong Hiok or CCH as he is also known, spoke on “Mindset of Hope in Crisis.” He was on Zoom being broadcasted online to listeners who were observing safe distancing.

In the midst of COVID-19 pandemic, he spoke words of hope and encouragement to all present online. Quoting from Habakkuk 3, he exhorted all to continue trusting the LORD amidst challenging situations. The LORD is everpresent in our midst, and we can rejoice in Him. He also referred to Psalm 91 where the faithfulness of God is truly our shield and rampart in times of need. As we meditate on His Word, we will discover afresh that He is indeed our refuge.

God’s Faithfulness and Protection

“But the Lord is faithful, and he will strengthen you and protect you from the evil one.” ~ 2 Thessalonians 3:3 (NIV)

The Lord will never let us down! His love surrounds and overshadows us in this challenging season. He is faithful in protecting us against our enemies.

New Testament Found in the Old

The study of Genesis to Esther, through the Old Testament Narratives course, highlights that the God of the Old Testament is the same God we worship today. It has been said that “The New Testament is concealed in the Old, and the Old Testament is revealed in the New.” Many themes we find in the New Testament have their roots in the history of Israel.

The students in the class appreciated the unfolding drama of God’s redemptive plan for man. Dr Jeremy Chew, the class teacher, taught how each book advances God’s plan to raise up a chosen people and a holy nation. Indeed the New is found in the Old.

First Corinthians Period Drama

At a recent Chapel Service, the Mentoring Group (MG) responsible for organizing the service acted out a period drama on 1 Corinthians to convey the inherent gospel message of body life and unity. Watch a snippet below:


The MG is helmed by two faculty who individually teaches Expository Preaching (Mr Jacob Li) and Exposition of Romans (Dr Andrew Spurgeon) this past semester. Praise God for the meaningful Bible lesson taught in a refreshing way.
