Retret Guru & Karyawan IPEKA 2013 Be Still & Know that I Am God

Be still & know that I Am God was the theme which is taken from Psalm 46:10a for IPEKA Teachers & Staff Retreat of all IPEKA school locations in Jakarta and Bekasi held on last 10 – 12 July 2013 in Puncak, West Java.

IPEKA invited some speakers for this retreat: Rev. Christopher Chia from Adam Road Presbyterian Church Singapore, Rev. Ian Warren Vail from Wycliffe Bible Translators (see Berean Insights), Ev. Emil Salim from STT Reformed Indonesia, Ps. Peterus Pamudji a lecturer at Institut Theologia Aletheia Lawang, Ps. Agus Gunawan rector of STT Bandung, and Mr. Petroes S. Soeryo CEO of IPEKA Christian School who shared God’s Words for the last session.

All the lessons shared by the speakers have blessed, equipped, refreshed and reminded the teachers and staff to be fervent in spirit and know their purpose in the ministry field of education, especially toward IPEKA students. It was a wonderful experience also for the teachers and staff during the contemplation session where they could be closer to God while reflecting on how they have served the Lord throughout this academic year.

As the new Academic Year 2013/2014 has arrived, may we always be with Him in everything we do. No matter what we may face or preoccupied with activities or routines, may we would be still and trust Him more. It does not mean that we do nothing. It means that we should include God in everything that we do.

Be still and know that He is God
Be still and know that He is holy
Be still, O restless soul of mine
Bow before the Prince of peace
Let the noise and clamor cease
Be still

Be still and know that He is God
Be still and know that He is faithful
Consider all that he has done
Stand in awe and be amazed
And know that He will never change
Be still
