Issue #24 of "Salt Shakers" (January 2014)

The newest issue of "Salt Shakers" (#24 - January 2014) has been released! This is the magazine of the young people of Covenant Evangelical Reformed Church of Singapore, our sister church in that part of the world.

This issue too is packed with great articles of spiritual value for our young people, but also for all PRC members! Below are the first two pages of this issue, which include the table of contents. Attached here you may also find the full pdf version. Or you may visit the Salt Shaker's website to read it online.

This is the greeting that came with this new issue:

Greetings in the name of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ!
 
We thank the Lord that we are able to release our 24th issue of Salt Shakers! As we begin a new year, may we remember God’s mercy and grace to us through this past year, and walk close to Him this year as well.
 
With many trials ahead this new year, this issue of Salt Shakers goes back to the source and origin of our salvation, God. We explore God's Golden Chain of Salvation for us, with articles such as “God’s Foreknowing, Predestined to be Conformed” and “Glorified in Heaven”. Included inside is also a special feature, Amazing Grace”, a compilation of conversion testimonies by members of Covenant ERC. (Read to find out who!)
 
In light of the coming Chinese New Year which many of us here in Singapore celebrate, we also have an article titled “Is Gambling Wrong? Dealing with Chinese New Year Gambling” to address the gambling which commonly takes place during Chinese New Year visitations.
 
Read, Pray, Grow!
 
We wish our Chinese readers a very blessed Chinese New Year!
 
 
For the King,
Huiqi
On behalf of the Salt Shakers committee
 
"Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, Make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is wellpleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen." - Hebrews 13:20-21

A Typical Sunday in Covenant ERC, Singapore

CERCS-SundayPics-SSclass

Have you ever wondered what a typical Sunday is like in our sister church in Singapore? Back in August of this year Stephanie Lanning, wife of Rev.Andy Lanning, pastor of the Covenant Evangelical Reformed Church of Singapore, did a special blog post on a typcial Sunday in this congregation. She titled it "A Day at Church". With help from her father, Rev.Steven Key, who was visiting at the time, she also included some supporting pictures.

We should know the faith and practice of our "sister" in Singapore. Then we will better appreciate and be thankful for our covenant "church family" relation. And we will also be better equipped to pray for her according to her particular needs.

 

 

What follows is part of her post, including the Sunday schedule and two pictures. Visit this post to see more pictures, and make frequent visits to Mrs.Lanning's blog for many other interesting posts about life in Singapore and in the CERC.

What does God's Word teach us to look for in a Girlfriend?

How are we to Build a New Godly Home according to God's Word?

Is the Apocrypha part of God's Word

"Forever settled in the heavens,
Thy word, O Lord, shall firmly stand;
Thy faithfulness shall never fail;
The earth abides at Thy command."
 
Do we love God's word so much that we love to sing it as well?

Please take a look at what this latest magazine has to offer!

New Issue of "Covenant Reformed News"

CR News head

The latest issue of the "Covenant Reformed News" has been published, and once again it contains two interesting and edifying articles.

The first is by Rev.Angus Stewart, pastor of the Covenant PRC in Ballymena, N.Ireland. It is titled "The Dove-Like Spirit at Jesus' Baptism". From his article you will learn why the dove was such a fitting symbol of the Holy Spirit at the time Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist.

The second article is penned by emeritus PRC Seminary professor Herman Hanko and is based on a question from a reader. Taking a look at 2 Kings 1 and Luke 9, Hanko explains why "fire from heaven" was appropriate in one context and not in another. You will want to read this article as well.
