Monday, 3rd July
On Monday morning we had time to rest and prepare for the start of the Training. Also, our dear drivers returned most of the cars to the airport as we don’t need them this week. Thank you saints for taking care of us with the car hire and driving!
The general subject of the July Semiannual Training is An Overview of the Central Burden and Present Truth of the Lord’s Recovery before His Appearing.
This is the first Semiannual Training since the Crystallization-studies were completed, which the brothers said is very significant!
Our first two messages on Monday night were on:
1. The Ultimate Goal of God’s Economy
2. The Divine and Mystical Realm
Here are a few of our impressions from these messages!
We also checked out the concessions on sale by Acaciawood who were raising money for their Spring Break Trip. This year the Acaciawood High School Seniors had come to visit us in London and Cambridge! They were selling tamales, bubble tea, cake, and other things. But the queue was really long!
The second meeting started at 7.25pm, and ended at 9.30pm. After the announcements, we were reminded to pick up our study questions on the way out. This is a training and so having a study time (and being tested) is part of our being in the training.
The car park is really busy at night with everyone exiting. But we can learn to be simultaneously in the physical realm and also in the divine and mystical realm even while we wait to board the buses, wait at the red lights, and coordinate with our housemates to take showers and get ready for bed.
Keep us abiding in You this whole week, Lord Jesus!
