Chinese Calligraphy

In the mist of doing the magazine ... we are in the final2 stage of approval for postgrads students .... we have to wait for the Board of Governors to meet before the final list can be confirm. The challenge - their articles and some even ads are already in the mag. So how?

Our backup or contingency plan :

Plan a) get more group pictures of the class to feature their life and activities here in TTC
Plan b) get ppl to write something -- poems etc, especially Chinese ones ... since the entire mag is Eng and there is no Chinese words etc ...

So, I assigned aunty Lily to go and get for me ... here is what she come out with and I personally think its very nice .. and when she explain the meaning ... wow ... powderful! Think I am beginning to appreciate the fine art of Chinese calligraphy.

This is the most meaningful and beautifully written. It takes its meaning from Mark10: 45

" For even the Son of Man
did not come to be served,
but to serve,
and to give his life
as a ransom for many."

God is love
expressed in
Chinese Calligraphy

This is words of blessing particularly during Chinese Lunar New Year.

"God's blessings overflows ......"

The man behind all this : Rev Daniel Lin Liang Guang who is here in TTC for 1 year to do his Masters of Ministry. He is from Fuzhou, China .... he has Foochow look? Hahhaha ... he is one ... he speaks Hock Chew with very heavy accent. A very humble man who has been in the ministry for many years. Quiet but always cheerful and encouraging. Guess these traits also comes with years of molding in the Potter's House and maturity. I consider myself very privilege to have gotten to know him in TTC.

p/s :Li thanks for helping & teaching me how to appreciate the richness of our language and our culture .... :0 ..
