After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!”Revelation 7:9-10 (ESV)
Weekly the Dordt College campus gathers as a corporate body for worship, prayer, and the preaching of God’s Word. Throughout this academic semester, the worship services have been focusing on questions the campus community and alumni submitted. The questions asked were ones either they wished could be answered before they graduate from college. Or, the questions were ones submitted by alumni and friends of Dordt College–questions they wished could have been answered for them while in college or questions they think should be answered for students prior to graduation. Questions asked were ones about identity, calling, and disciplines. Questions about dating and marriage, homosexuality and hunger were asked. And questions about diversity and racial reconciliation were asked, too.
Although we have published some of the testimonies shared in chapel on April 1st, the voices of these students are so much more powerful being heard. We invite you to listen to this podcast from Dordt College’s chapel. Be challenged. Be moved. Be changed.
