Evening Talk 5 December 2014:
Between Jubilee & Advent … Culture & Kingdom 

The local Church is today wrestling with issues of public witness and mission. While local churches and para-church organisations have been responding to these challenges in their unique ways, there is room for growth and mutual learning in terms of Church unity and collective wisdom. As Singapore enters her 50th year, this Jubilee marks the season for the Church to turn to God’s Word and capture God’s vision for His people, as reflected in the Jubilee event.

Hear from Bishop Emeritus Robert Solomon on “Jubilee and Advent”: on the biblical vision of the Jubilee; how it finds its fulfilment in the First Advent of Christ, and its ultimate fulfilment in His Second Advent – and what this means for the Church today.

study guide
1. Out of the 10 inspiring stories of missionaries sent from Singapore, which story do you like best? Why?
2. Do you agree that God has given children a sense of curiosity and a mind full of imagination? At play, they explore the world they live in. The school, the church and the home can provide wonderful opportunities for children to learn about different people and cultures in the wonderful world God has created.
3. How many types of occupations can you list from the 10 missionary stories? Have you started to think about what you would like to do when you grow up?
4. Can you match the missionaries with their occupations? Whether you are a medical doctor or a dental nurse, a pastor or a teacher, a business leader or a community worker, you can serve God in missions using your special interest, talent and training.
5. It is never too early to wonder about life. Many of the missionaries asked questions even when they were young. Some of them experienced bullying, disappointments, unhappiness and even family problems when they were young. They learnt about the purpose of their lives when they started talking to parents, pastors and teachers in church. Do you talk to your parents and teachers about your hopes and fears?
6. Do you realize that God can use your childhood interests, experiences and education to be a blessing to the people around you? Whether it is learning about science, geography, or enjoying the fishing at the beach or making music, it takes hard work to become good at what you like to do. So work hard, play hard and enjoy your childhood.
