“God will endure forever, but on earth, man’s life is like a “watch in the night”, or like “a shadow or a mist that disappears”. We cannot grasp a shadow, nor lay hold of a mist. It dissipates, just like our mortal life. The Bible tells us that time for man on earth is short and elusive.
As time is such a limited resource, life is very precious. Time is the only gift from God to man that decreases daily. We are only as young as we are right now.
Therefore, since our earthly days are few, how to make the most of it becomes a critical issue for all of us. This is where we come to the topic of our forthcoming talk: Sabbath rest where time is sacred because it is time made holy by a holy God. “When history began, there was only one holiness in the world, holiness in time” —Abraham Heschel.
So come and join us for the talk. Practicum in the form of exercises will also be given, together with prayer ministry for those who may need ministry.
Date: Sat 25 Sep 2021
Time: 2.00 - 4.00pm

A Zoom Workshop by Mr Alfred Quah, Founder of One Path Ministry.
Resilience is the ability to respond creatively to stressful, pressure-packed, anxiety-producing situation such as Paul’s(2 Cor 11:23-28). Paul tells us to “run with patience the race that is set before us” (Heb 12:1). He tells us to “fight the good fight, to finish the course and keep the faith” (2 Tim 4:7).
A resilient person, rather than being deformed, diminished, or even destroyed by such traumatic, tension-filled circumstances, is able to engage those conditions in healthy, redemptive ways that bring some degree of wholeness.
Growing resilience in life involves cultivating holistic self-care in the arenas of the spiritual, physical, psychological, emotional, and social. Due to the limitation of the length of this workshop, Mr Quah will focus primarily on Spiritual Resilience and provide brief handles on the other areas.
Date: Sat, 9 Oct 2021
Time: 2.00 to 3.30pm
Registration opens on 19 Sep and closes on 3 Oct
