- A testimony (written as a poem) by Chan Sam Neo. E1. 2015
14 January 2015
Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life?
Matthew 6: 26- 30
(Ian Poulier’s father, Gerald Hilary Lancelot Poulier, went home to the Lord on 6 January 2015, not long after Ian wrote this devotional on 26 December 2014.)
Every Christmas, for the past six years, my ex-teacher Alphonso would drop by our home with his fabulous chicken pie. Alphonso used to teach in St Joseph’s Institution (SJI) with my late brother, Roger.
Even after leaving SJI, Roger and Alphonso kept in touch via the latter’s Christmas Chicken Pie. It was an interesting mode of communication indeed.
Every year, on Christmas Day, Alphonso and his wife would call out to one of us at the gate and produce this lovely chicken pie for us to devour.
