Dear Brothers and Sisters,
These are extraordinary times. One thing that God has reminded us of during this period is the importance for all Christians to come together to support each other as one Church, just like how Ruth practiced ḥeseḏ (lovingkindness) toward Naomi.
In this vein, BGST is delighted to do our own small part by producing this series of free video lessons on the Book of Ruth to support the teaching needs of the Church during this trying season. Given the importance of interdisciplinary perspectives in growing the whole people of God, all BGST faculty members were involved in teaching these lessons. We hope that these lessons from Ruth will open your eyes to God's faithful and constant providential care of His people, come rain or shine.
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank our generous partners who supported this project. A big thank you to Graceworks (especially Bernice and Priscilla) for helping us design this e-guidebook, as well as Bethany Evangelical Free Church (especially Rev Dr Desmond Soh) for opening their premises to facilitate the filming. Finally, our warmest thanks to Ms Jacqueline Lie, our alumnus, for taking up the role of volunteer project manager. These materials would not have been possible without them all!
Lastly, I would like to thank all of you for using these resources, and for supporting BGST's vision that "all Christians grow in Christ-likeness and live out their calling to fulfill God’s creative and redemptive purposes in the Church and the marketplace". May these lessons help us to become more like Christ, even as we receive comfort under the wings of God!
Yours, in Christ,
Dr Lai Pak Wah
