Rev. Willie Liebenberg | Chaplain
As the College Chaplain, praying for my community is something that comforts me as I try to comfort others. Rest assured, I have been praying for the SCOTS PGC community a lot throughout the last couple of months as we navigate the challenges a pandemic presents us with.
Prior to COVID-19, I had introduced weekly prayer gatherings here at the College. As a community, it is important that we come together and pray. It is something that I have missed during isolation and as soon as restrictions ease, I’m looking forward to resuming our weekly, informal gatherings.
Hebrews 10: 24 – 25, (NRSV, MSG), “Let’s see how inventive we can be in encouraging love and helping out, not neglecting to meet together.” So, why is it essential that we continue to meet as a community? Gathering as a community is fun. I love nothing more than meeting as a group and enjoying the company of others. A community like ours is one that fosters love. A community like ours is life-giving. I know it can be hard for some of us to commit our time to be part of a community, but a community is God’s desire for us, and the exciting thing is, as we grow in our relationships with others, we will grow in our relationship with God. Matthew 18: 20, “And when two or three of you are gathered because of me, you can be assured that I’ll be there.” So, as soon as we are able to restart our weekly prayer group, I’m asking you to consider coming along and building up our community. I will provide meeting details once again, as soon as I am able. So until then, please be safe and keep our community in your hearts and minds.
