Spring in our Steps

Tuesday, March 31st, 2009

Regular readers of this blog will know that three of us – Vanessa, Anna and I –  have been preparing over the past few months to run the Prague half-marathon, in support of IBTS’s Jubilee appeal. Last Saturday on a beautiful warm spring day we lined up with around 6500 other people to run through the streets of Prague.

A half-marathon is 21.0975 kilometres (13 miles 192 yards). It’s those last fifty centimetres that is hardest! The course took us along the banks of the Vltava river that flows through Prague, up and down each side.

I had run one half-marathon before, some ten years ago, when I was somewhat younger. I have now moved to the MM45 category, which sounds like the sort of additive you get warned about in fizzy drinks, but is actually to do with ages. Ten years ago, I had no idea what to expect, and I rather enjoyed the experience, so when I was talking with Vanessa in September and she mentioned that she was thinking of running the half-marathon for the Jubilee appeal, I thought it would be good to join in.

CATs on Community

Friday, March 27th, 2009

This week’s morning prayers were led by two of our CAT students – Olha (Ukraine) and Nathanael (Belgium). They were looking at various ways we encounter God and worship him. One of the days focused on meeting God in the life of the Christian community, and also involved some responses of the fellow CAT students.

At the beginning we as CATs didn’t think about building community at all. Actually for some of us it was even a new word! But God worked in us and taught us how to be changed and shaped by living in Building G. He is changing our characters. Sometimes it is hard, but by this means he teaches us how to be flexible, sensible and humble. Here are the reflections of some CATs about what it means personally for them. (more…)

Child Theology

Tuesday, March 24th, 2009

In these past months, the IBTS morning prayer services have welcomed a king, a dancing ballerina and various pieces of farm equipment and motor vehicles. These came on the backs of and in the hands of three children (under 5 yrs) who have become a valued part of the IBTS community.

They bring their parents along to morning community coffee break and remind all of us that there are many adventures to be had all around the seminary campus, if we take time to enjoy them. (more…)

Give your time to God

Wednesday, March 18th, 2009

Hello to all our readers! This time we pass on to you a reflection of one of our Certificate in Applied Theology students, Adina. Adina is a Hungarian from Transylvania (Romania).

Today I experienced God’s faithfulness. Half a year ago I was asked by my pastor to do some research about the history of the Hungarian Roma church in Oradea. Our church is its mother church, and I used to do mission among the Roma children, leading their children ministry. My pastor asked me also to translate the information into English. I said yes with hesitation, because it was during my exam time, and it required a lot of effort.

Now I say that it was worth it. Today I wanted to use some data about the history of the Roma church, but couldn’t open their website. Almost completely discouraged I typed the pastor’s name in Google. What did I find? I found a website with my work. Now this is the only source of the information about the history of that  Roma church which I need to finish my essay about mission. 🙂 Praise be to God! So don’t be afraid, give your time to God! You will have your reward. He will repay your service.
