A short holiday hiatus

Exams are over, papers are done, and the campus is quiet. Chapel services will resume on February 8 after our January Interterm. The "J-term", as we call it, is when our students take short, intensive classes or travel on LPTS-sponsored trips of discovery to other places and cultures. Students from other seminaries, LPTS alums, and church leaders are welcome to travel with us.

Please return after February 8, 2008 for a new sermon. Feel free to visit the other sermons and lectures on this page, the sermons from this academic year, or the sermon archive for other words of comfort, challenge, and compassion that have been spoken in Caldwell Chapel.

In commemoration of World AIDS Day, the LPTS community gathered in Caldwell Chapel to remember those who are HIV positive, those who live with AIDS around the world, and those active in the struggle against AIDS. We are invited to sit where our brothers and sisters with AIDS sit in their daily life, and are reminded that we know God through our knowledge of the poor, the sick, and the oppressed. Listen to the service. Read Professor Hyde’s remarks in PDF. Read Andrew Black’s remarks in PDF.
