to answer the question...

for last thursday chapel, we had the bishop of the anglican diocese of west malaysia to speak to us. bishop ng posed the question to all the students and faculty, 'what do i want to achieve at the end of my ministry?'

well, the reb went back and thought about it and came up with his answers. so, for this morning's tuesday chapel, the reb shared his answers to the bishop's question. see the video. (note: you may have to pause it as it moves quite fast between slides).
