Chapel Summary

Chapel on 20th May was taken by Dr Ng Peh Cheng, who took us through various incidents in the life of Samson as recorded in Judges 13-16 (not forgetting Hebrews 11). Dr Ng focused on the themes of consecration and calling, dependence on God and vulnerability to temptation, bringing together reflections on the biblical text and illustrations taken from her own experience. If you want to hear her entertaining and wide-ranging message, a recording is available.
