Issue 19, April 2019

Updated: 13 hours ago

Every anniversary is a chance to reflect on what has come before, and on where we are

now. The passage of another year in COR’s life is no different from the ones before, except that this year, we’ve reached our 40th anniversary. For many Christians, the number 40 is significant. The earth was flooded for 40 days and 40 nights. Moses spent 40 days on Mount Sinai in God’s presence, while Israel wandered for 40 years in the wilderness. Our Lord fasted for 40 days in the desert before the start of his ministry, and then spent 40 days amongst his disciples after his resurrection. The number symbolises a season and a generation, a time of testing and a time of preparation.


In this issue of CHORUS, we take time to reflect on what the last 40 years have meant for COR. We do this through the very people who make COR what it is. We put the spotlight here for our members in COR to share 40 stories of lives transformed across the years, of walking together as a family, of God’s unfailing mercies.


Not all of the 40 stories collected are found in this issue. While the bulk of these stories are in your hands, we have also intentionally distributed some stories across our social media platforms on Facebook, Instagram, and our COR website. We hope that you would take time to discover more about our members via their stories,and piece together the amazing tapestry of lives that represents COR. We also pray that these stories might encourage you to share your own transformational stories, as we journey together towards the next 40 years! To God be the glory!
