THE Scripture Union campsite on Sentosa was alive to lively fellowship, study and reflection on the weekend of Jan 26-28 when about 40 Methodist students at Trinity Theological College (TTC) converged for their annual retreat.
Bishop Dr Robert Solomon spoke on the topic, “At the Crossroads: Listen Before You Leap”, encouraging the theological students to listen to the voice of God and then to obey. Students were encouraged to spend time in the spiritual disciplines.
To complement the quiet reflective times, they also had plenty of “active discipleship” time.
The Rev Dr Steve Emery-Wright, TTC’s new youth ministries lecturer, led the small groups through a series of team-building events and also prepared them to participate in a Sunday morning Emmaus pilgrimage that culminated in the Holy Communion.
The retreat, which has become an annual event, is an opportunity for the students to share experiences and to reflect on various aspects of our Wesleyan heritage.
A team-building exercise that not only taught useful skills but also brought fun and laughter. – Picture by Samuel Law, a student at Trinity Theological College.
