Dearest Salt Shakers' Readers,
Greetings in the name of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ!
We thankful to God once again for yet another release of Salt Shakers!
Salt Shakers takes on an army theme this issue, with an article title "Serving God through National Service" as well as testimonies from members in our church who have already gone through National Service (2 years of mandatory military service) in Singapore. The purpose of these articles is two fold. First, we hope that through these articles, the young man who are currently serving or are about to be enlisted in National Service would be build up by the biblical principles and good testimonies and shine for our Lord. Second, in light of Singapore's Ministry of Defense celebrating the 45th anniversary of National Service this year and with many news reports on the perspective Singaporeans should take towards NS, these 2 articles hopes to shed some light how we and soldiers of Christ should view national service, through the lens of infallible scripture.
Other interesting articles in this month's issue are "Our Father's Handiwork: Lightning", "Are the Psalms Adequate for the Worship of God?". "Parents' Role in Teaching the Catechism", "A Brief Report of Synod 2013" as well as a book review on "The Covenant of God and the Children of Believers".
We pray that these articles will be spiritually edifying to your souls.
Hope you enjoy this issue!
For the King,
On behalf of the Salt Shakers Committee
2 Timothy 2:3 Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.
