Holy Saturday


“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life” John 3:16 (ESV)

On this Holy Saturday, we wait in quiet anticipation, holding onto the hope of resurrection and return. Rev Christopher Chan, Acting Vicar of St Andrew’s Cathedral, has this to say:

On Holy Saturday, we find ourselves in a period of waiting: the darkness of Good Friday still surrounds us as we yearn for the joy of Easter Sunday. Perhaps this mirrors an ongoing painful experience from which we long to be delivered? May we wait patiently for redemption and vindication from God, holding fast to the hope of resurrection life in the new creation, where we shall see His face and rejoice in His presence forevermore.

EAST Express Tabao Theology Podcast: How to suffer well


How does one have hope amidst trials?

Suffering is experienced by every person who has ever lived or is living on earth. In this episode of EAST EXPRESS Tabao Theology podcast, Rev Jacob Li, Dr Lewis Winkler, and Ms Anj Pantaleon sought biblical and theological responses to the questions on suffering together with personal and practical responses to issues pertinent to Christians & non-Christians today.

The podcast brings us to examine how as Christians, we fall back on the example of Christ who suffered for the hope set before Him of God’s greater glory ahead. Moreover, we have the comfort of the Holy Spirit who dwells within us as we go through various challenges on earth.

A reflection theme for Holy Saturday–the day “in-between” the eventful days of Good Friday and Resurrection Sunday: If God is indeed real, why is there death and suffering on Earth still? Consider pondering over Mr Max Jeganathan’s message as he spoke at a Good Friday Service on this universal issue of suffering. Whether one is a follower of Christ or otherwise, his message is deeply relevant to us all.
