Description

[I wanted to keep a low profile during the recent STM biblical study tour to Greece (2015). Then the spiritual directors, Rev Dr Lim Kar Yong and Rev Dr Paul Baker decided to have a Bible quiz for all the participants of the two buses. The question was “How many biblical metaphors about athletics preparing for their races can you find in the New Testament?” I opened my mouth. To my dismay, I find myself being crowned with an olive wreath for being winner of the quiz. And on the very stadium of ancient Olympia where the winners of the Olympic games were crowned. So much for keeping a low profile.]
