This is how the seminary school year begins...

This is how the new school year begins at the Lutheran Theological Seminary in Hong Kong...

hearing the Word (simultaneous translation provided - English, Cantonese, Mandarin)

Can't read the slogan on the t-shirt? I'll help you:

"Training Servants of God's Word for Asia"

receiving the Body at the foot of the cross -- face to face, hand to hand, heart to heart.

well fortified, students, staff, and professors walk back out into the Hong Kong heat... to classrooms, study, discussions, community life, and various kinds of diakonia - a recently renewed emphasis on campus - Christ-empowered acts of sharing, healing, and reconciliation.

14What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if you say you have faith 
but do not have works? 
Can faith save you? 15If a brother or sister is naked and lacks daily food, 
16and one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and eat your fill,” 
and yet you do not supply their bodily needs, 
what is the good of that? 
17So faith by itself, if it has no works, is dead.
(James 2:14-17)
