Hearing and Responding to God

Chapel is a time set apart from the hectic nature of daily school life that allows faculty and students to come together for a time of biblical teaching, religious contemplation, and corporate worship. Pastors, community leaders, faculty members, and fellow students are invited to address the community. The student chapel bands also lead the group in singing contemporary worship songs and traditional hymns.

Dr. Paul Borthwick, senior consultant to Development Associates International, challenged his audience's vision of God when he addressed Chapel Wednesday morning. We are to take the light of Christ to the nations, he said, that all might learn to fear God. "Our vision of God is too small," he stated. "We tend to make God into our own cultural image." Dr. Borthwick invited everyone to seek what God's heart is for the world. "[God] is not saying we shouldn't be concerned about America," Dr. Borthwick continued, "but not just America."

  "What do you do when you have good news?" Mr. Peter Fitzroy, Student Life Coordinator and Biblical Studies Faculty, asked this question as he began his Chapel address Wednesday morning. "You share it!" Mr. Fitzroy then directed his audience's attention to the book of Mark, which begins, "This is the Good News about Jesus Christ the Messiah." Mark 1:14 tells us that Jesus himself began to proclaim that Good News. Yet just a little while later, Jesus begins asking that his identity remain a secret.
