Between September 2011 and January 2013,
I was involved in the learning process with primarily 2 classes:
1) A class of newly high school graduates;
2) A class of the ordained ministers who enrolled in
the advanced study of the theologies.
Almost immediately, I fell in love with both classes.
Regardless the differences in ages, they are cute in spirit and fresh in the academic adventures.
I searched from both my memory and the up-to-date internet resources to challenge them, also to myself, over the differences due to the cultural and language gaps.
After all, I have been away from Taiwan for
some forty years.
And we still had a lot of fun together!
Recently I made a quick trip back to the school and congratulated the graduating students of the class of 2015.
I have learned that a few of them are going for
advanced study of either M Div. or M Th. program.
How encouraging this is!
On my way home, I got an email from one of the
graduating students (see the letter inserted below)
It reminded me of the scripture from Exodus 3:14
“…I AM That I AM.” God said.
And somewhere back in my mind a more complete
translation could be: “I was that I was; I am that I am; and I will be that I will be;” to which the Chinese/Taiwanese translation may have expressed better: “我是自有永有的/我是自然而然的.“ (出埃及記 3:14)
It meant that God would be with Moses
- wherever he went and whatever he did.
It surely means, to all of us,
that no matter where we’d be
and whatever we would be doing,
God is with us as well.
Laughing, crying, singing, dancing, working...
God is there with us, a little scary,
But mostly comforting.
That is, forever, a good news to us all!
