Advent Devotion


Humanity’s only hope is Jesus! Advent (Latin: Adventus meaning “Coming or Arrival”) is the season where Christians reflect on the birth of Jesus two thousand years ago on the first Christmas day; and look forward to the second coming of Jesus at the end of the age.

During the Advent season, the gospel message of Jesus Christ, the Messiah, is traditionally presented in the form of an Advent wreath and the lighting of five candles symbolising the centrality of Jesus Christ together with the central gospel themes of love, joy, peace, and hope.

The Vicar Writes …

27 Nov 2022

“Therefore, with minds that are alert and fully sober, set your hope on the grace to be brought to you when Jesus Christ is revealed at his coming.” 1 Peter 1:13

Dear St Hilda’s Family,

As 2022 draws to an end, the new year in the church calendar begins with the season of Advent. This is God’s provision for us.

In many ways, this year has been even worse compared to the past two years. Who would have thought? Most of us couldn’t wait to see the light at the end of the Covid tunnel. Many – including myself – thought that once the Covid measures are lifted, we would soon be back to normal, even dismissing the talk about “new normal”. And though 2022 allowed us to freely congregate, even to travel again, our excitement seems short-lived.

The war in the Ukraine has affected us greatly, even though it is so far away. Inflation has sky-rocketed, many economies are in recession. In addition, and closer to home, there are rising tensions between China and Taiwan, ever increasing military provocation by North Korea, and political instability in Malaysia. Our little red dot still seems to be unaffected, but the questions is ‘How long?’

At St Hilda’s, we had many of our friends passing on to glory, and others falling ill, even with serious illnesses like Ps Allison. Covid seems to have taken a higher toll on our general health and strength than we thought.

With all of this, why are we encouraging the church to share the gospel more boldly in these times? Are we neglecting the realities of the people in Singapore and focussing on the spiritual instead?

When we look at Advent as God’s provision for us, we must allow the Holy Spirit to transform us.

Testimony


“Be Still and Know You are God”

5 Dec 2022
 
A Testimony from Ps Allison Chee
 
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,
 
My journey with God ……
 
I want to give thanks and praise to God, my beloved family, the family of God at St Hilda’s and the wider body of Christ for praying for me, especially during these past few weeks. My diagnosis must have come as a shock to many of you and I think some may have asked “why?”, “what happened?” “how come?” But thanks be to God – I was so filled with the overflowing love of God during my stay in hospital because I knew that many of you at St Hilda’s were covering me in prayer. The song that God placed in heart was the chorus of “Still” – “when the oceans rise and thunders roar, I will soar with you above the storm, Father You are King over the flood, I will be still and know You are God”. I felt so assured that all I needed was to just be still and know that He is in control, and I will soar with Him above the storm. I felt very calm and carefree throughout my stay in hospital.
