Boston Trinity alumnae Mrs. Emilie Hodge Osman spoke to Chapel attendees Wednesday afternoon about pursuing one's unique call. Mrs. Osman is the recipient of the 2020 Alumni Recognition Award for her work with a church planting mission in Yalova, Turkey, where she has been ministering cross-culturally to Muslims since 2018.
Boston Trinity Academy paid tribute to veterans in our annual Veterans Day Chapel on Wednesday morning. Mr. Guerra began the service by explaining the origin of the Veterans Day observance, after which Abigail Hill, Lubert Etienne, and Santiago Rodriguez recited the poem "In Flanders Fields," written by Canadian physician Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae, and published in December 1915. Following their recitation, Mrs. Kirstin Peltz and Caleb Kang played a cello duet, "Flanders Fields" composed by Charles Ives.
"What would it be like for you if God walked into the room?"
Mrs. Ingrid Hill, Biblical Studies Department Chair, asked that thought-provoking question as she began her Chapel address on Wednesday afternoon. We are afraid of being known, Mrs. Hill contended, yet we are completely known by God. Psalm 139 tells us that God knows all of our ways. Since God knows all about me, does He still like me? Can I have self confidence? The answer, Mrs. Hill said, is a resounding "Yes!"
You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. – Jeremiah 29:13
Boston Trinity alumnus Paul Park ('11) wanted to direct thoughts to God in his Chapel address Wednesday afternoon. Paul, now in his second year of a Ph.D. program in bio-research at Harvard medical school, confessed, "There was a time I thought I wouldn't make it through high school. But God says, 'For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways.... As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.' (Isaiah 55:8-9) It doesn't matter what others think, or even what you think," Paul continued. "What matters is what God thinks."
"Do you remember what you did yesterday?" began Mr. Peter Fitzroy, BTA Biblical Studies faculty, who spoke in today's Chapel service. "...What you did last week? A conversation with a good friend? An amazing sunset? Do you remember a time when you were caught in wrong doing? Something that hurt you? Do you remember a time when God was shown to be faithful?"
