Encore is an initiative of Morling College, held on Friday mornings at our Sydney campus and livestreamed online. It is designed for people who are retired or no longer working full-time to continue learning about God with like-minded people. There are no academic requirements or assessments for Encore. Every new stage of life has its challenges and possibilities, and it is in an open learning environment that people bring their life experience, skills & knowledge to explore the following areas:
- Engaging Bible teaching – challenging your own journey with God
- Asking the tough questions – about life’s big issues
- Faith in action – in your family, communities, local and overseas
What does Encore look like?
The program has a mix of lecture-style presentations and more discussion-based seminars.
Each Friday morning will have the same structure:
- 9.45am - 9.50am - Welcome, prayer and announcements
- 9.50M - 10.45am - Session 1
- 10.45m - 11.05am - Morning Tea
- 11.05am – 12 noon - Session 2
We will meet in the Ministry and Learning Centre at our Sydney campus (5 Saunders Close, Macquarie Park) and also via livestream. Parking is available.
BLOCK A: February 26 - March 26
EXPLORING THE TRINITY, with Cass Kwakye
A.W Tozer once said, “To meditate on the three Persons of the Godhead is to walk in thought through the garden eastward in Eden and to tread on holy ground….” The mystery of the Trinity has both baffled and marvelled the greatest of men and women throughout Church History. Just how might we understand the Oneness of God and the Threeness of the persons we call Father, Son and Spirit? Further still, how might our discipleship be one that reflects the Trinitarian Nature of God? This Semester we shall dare to “walk in thought through the garden eastward of Eden,” asking what does the Bible actually have to say about the Trinity and in what practical ways might we live in light of this?
Cass Kwakye lives with her husband and two sons in Sydney. Cass has worked as an adjunct lecturer at Morling since 2007. She was also a Director of our Plunge Gap Year. Cass has enjoyed serving in several pastoral positions as well. She is currently studying her PhD in Trinitarian Theology in the Gospel of John. In what is left of her time she loves walking bush trails with her family and painting.
After morning tea on the 1st Friday of every month we will hear from a few Morling Scholarship recipients who will share their stories and help us be encouraged about the ways God is working in people’s lives here in Australia and beyond.
