Lamenting as an Act of Faith

“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.

Season of Lent: Ash Wednesday

Ash Wednesday is the first day of Lent which is 46 days away from Easter (or Resurrection) Sunday. In the Bible, the use of ashes symbolized the frailty of humanity, mourning, and repentance (e.g. Genesis 3:19; Job 42:5,6; Matthew 11:21). The season of Lent is a 40-day period, excluding Sundays, as a time of fasting, reflection, and repentance, and capped by celebration on Resurrection Sunday. The 40-day period is significant as it reflects Christ’s wilderness experience, where he fasted and was tempted by Satan. Christians see Lent as intentional setting aside of time for fasting, reflecting on and identifying with the life, ministry, sacrifice, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
