So it’s been one month in Trinity Theological College. Time really flies fast when you’re enjoying it. What makes this experience unique are the Chapels, the Content and the Community (that’s a nice acrostic).
Chapels are conducted three times a week and seem to be a lot. However, these chapels are refreshing as we train the spiritual aspect of our lives, both as a participant or a server. Additionally, I’ve grown to love liturgy in the services as a way of understanding how to worship God better.
The Bible lessons, readings and reports might be rather overwhelming.Though some lessons might be dry, I believe all study is a form of worship to God. What better things to study than the eternal knowledge that draws us closer to God! It is wonderful to start and end classes with a prayer by the lecturers. This reminds me that we need the Holy Spirit’s help to study the Bible.
The college is a tight-knit community and my initial plan was to fly low under the radar. Obviously that was impossible with all the caring guys and girls around! Besides, my fellow students aren’t the run-of-the-mill Christians – most are dedicated to fulltime ministry once they graduate. This community is crucial in my spiritual formation. There are no lone rangers/Rambos in ministry. That’s why Paul told Timothy to:
Flee the evil desires of youth and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart.
2 Tim 2:22
