Ready. Chapels, Start!

 

Chapel has started this semester at the EAST Mission Hub, and we started off with a reminder that the Lord is faithful and He keeps His promises.

Keeping to safe distancing measures of the season, we used e-platforms to connect the EAST community for a communal time of prayer and worship.

We give thanks for this unique way of gathering together, and continue to fix our eyes on God as a community.

 

In Thanksgiving – for This Semester

We had our final Chapel of the semester this week. In this season of safe distancing, EAST has been convening online for all the Chapels this semester. For many of us who have been at EAST for a while, these online Chapels have been very unique in the history of EAST.

We give thanks that online platforms have been available for us to ‘meet’ for Chapel, worship God synchronously, and even interact and pray for each other in breakout rooms!

We also give thanks that we are now into the last week of classes for this semester. It has definitely been a steep learning curve for our faculty and staff to switch over to online teaching platforms, and tough for our students to be in front of the computer for longer hours than before. 

With a spirit of thanksgiving we approach the end of this semester, and also with thanksgiving, we look forward to the fellowship and guidance of the Lord for the semesters ahead.

We say a big “Thank you!” to everyone who has been journeying with us in these times, and we pray that Jesus keeps each one of you close to Him now, and in the seasons ahead.

 

 

Don’t Conform. Be Transformed.



Mrs Josephine Li, EAST Partners in Ministry Faculty, shared at the last chapel service that this was how she discovered God’s will and vision for her life:

Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. (Romans 12:2, ESV)

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.

Chapel Moments


As school started this month with classes conducted online, Chapel has also begun with our faculty, staff and students gathering online for a weekly time of live worship, prayer and encouragement.

Even as we have only been able to convene for Chapel through online platforms this season, we give thanks that we are still able to come together for worship and prayer, and even have short times of fellowship in online breakout rooms!
