SANDAKAN – The Star of Yahweh Covenant Community (SYCC) conducted a 3-day Life in the Spirit Seminar (LSS) at St Mary’s Cathedral Jun 25-28. The seminar was open to all parishioners who are seeking for a personal renewal to deepen their relationship with Christ, and who wish to become a part of a community where they could be supported in their Christian life.
More than 50 adults and youth participated in the seminar which was conducted in English. A series of talks, praise and worship, group and personal sharing took place over the three-day period. The seminar provided opportunities for participants to explore many faith topics including the basic message of salvation, developing a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, as well as understanding the potential and the power of the Holy Spirit.
Speakers for the seminar included Fr Thomas Makajil and Fr Philip Muji and the Elders of SYCC.
SYCC has been regularly conducting LSS in the Cathedral to assist parishioners in rediscovering the power that Jesus gives his people through the Holy Spirit, and be empowered to live together in love and peace with a deep commitment to Jesus as Lord and Saviour. Jesus has promised, “I will ask the Father and He will give you another Counselor, to be with you forever, the spirit of truth. The world cannot accept Him, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him. But you know Him, for He lives with you and will be in you.” (Jn14:16-17) – DOSPO DS
