Welcome to the 44th issue of Salt Shakers!
Welcome to another issue of the Salt Shakers!
Since I completed the editorial series Lest We Forget in the last three issues, Lee Yang, the chairman of the Salt Shakers committee, will begin a new editorial series. He will be writing for the following three issues of the Salt Shakers, running till the end of the year.
In this issue, Rev. Nathan Langerak from Crete Protestant Reformed Church reminds our readers of the necessity of being Reformed – in doctrine, life, and polity. Using Scripture and the Reformed creeds, he carefully defines the meaning and beauty of the Reformed faith.
Reminiscing CERC’s 30-year history is Elder Chan Chee Seng. In the article Grateful Reminiscence, he recounts the young and difficult beginnings of CERC in 1986, and how he and his family are one of the very few charter members left in CERC today, by God’s grace. CERC faced many struggles since her inception, but God preserved and developed her into a faithful Reformed church. Today she is doctrinally stable and mature. Her members and young people are well-instructed in the distinctive truths of the Reformed faith.
Such is the loveliness of the church, as Elder Lee Kong Wee also highlights in his article Isn’t She Lovely. The church on earth, although comprising of sinful saints, is pure and lovely on account of her Saviour, Jesus Christ, who has cleansed His beloved bride thoroughly from the defilement of sin.
CERC is planning a Reformation Day conference in November to commemorate the 500th anniversary of the sixteenth century Reformation. We welcome one and all to hear the speeches that are being planned. More details on the conference will follow in the coming months.
As we commemorate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, it is crucial to understand that one of the greatest legacies that the reformers gave to us is the duty to read. A Reformed believer must be a reader. He must be a faithful reader of the Scriptures and Reformed literature, growing in grace and knowledge. Salt Shakers serves to preserve that legacy. So read, and pass the Salt!
