Uncommon Virtues

At Bethlehem College & Seminary, we aim to cultivate Christian maturity. This semester in chapel, we will explore a number of expressions of Christian maturity under the banner of Uncommon Virtues—characteristics like gentleness, patience, sober-mindedness, prudence, kindness, and humility. Our speakers will exhort and challenge us to cultivate habits of heart and mind and behavior that demonstrate love for God and love for neighbor.

Abide in Me

“Abide in me.” The simplicity of Jesus’s call masks the depth of his meaning. This semester in chapel, we will seek to explore these depths together. What does it mean to abide in Jesus? How can we do so—in prayer, in the word, in the church? What keeps us from doing so? What is promised to those who abide? What is threatened to those who don’t? In all of this our ultimate aim in this series will not be mere understanding. Instead, our aim and our prayer is that, by the grace of God, we will actually abide in Jesus, and he will abide in us.
