I'm getting a little lazy to write about SUSOM (I think this is quite normal for all of us, when you are at the program, you seem all eager to blog about it, but once it's over, as time passes, humans get lazier and lazier....but oh well, I'll make sure I make it to the end... =) )
12th January 2010
(This is what I wrote down in my journal) Ah... It's only the second day. Time seems to pass so slowly. I woke up unusually early, at 7 in the morning. The girls, were supposed to make breakfast! Guess who ended up doing.... Me & Teng! Girls = Sleepy Pigs... (Joking only har... =P)
In the morning, after Quiet Time, we had Part 2 of Spiritual Formation session by Runa. And yes, the perspectives and views throw by her to us were rather interesting and new to me. Who would have thought of the difference between the soul and spirit? I mean to me, I would not question it, because it seemed unimportant to me. We discussed the differences between spirit, body and soul; unity with God, transformation... etc...a lot of heavy and deep stuffs at once.
Lunch was at this hawker center near Old Town in PJ. The economy rice sold there is not bad, and not quite expensive.
After lunch, we found out that the SU Resource 1 session was cancelled, because the SU Resource guy only needed a session instead of 2 (Woopee! More free time! =P). The postponed ice-breaker session was conducted today by Daddy Koo!He started off the session with a ice-breaker game. The ice-breaker works like this, as a person answers a question about the opposite party, he or she has to keep the ping-pong ball bouncing as she says each word. Simple, right? But not for the twins... =P
He then asked us for our views on this ice-breaker and ways this ice-breaker could be improved (If I'm not mistaken, this ice-breaker was invented by Ah Koo himself).
Dinner was eaten out today, because we had a session at night in the office, also by Runa (She conducted two heavy sessions, you've gotta angkat topi to her, she must have been exhausted after she finished). That night, she talked about salvation. I had a few thoughts in mind when she talked about it. I realized how negligent I have been in my Christian life, we use the word 'salvation' almost every time we share the gospel, and in church, hear the preacher use the word 'salvation' often in sermons, but yet, after all this time, I've never actually took time to think about the deeper meaning of this commonly used word, 'salvation'. During the session, I realized that holding on with Christ is vital, the earth we are living on is so full of uncertainties! Even the line between wrong and right is getting thinner and thinner!
After the long and deep session, we spent about an hour figuring out how to use the washing machine! It was so hilarious! The 8 of us surrounding the washing machine, trying to figure out how to operate it. Haha.... I was so TIRED after that, I conked out when my head touched the pillow! =)
