Worshipping on the Sabbath at Dartmouth

The blessings and challenges of worshipping on the Sabbath in a secular 'university city', as we observed at http://ufunuo.blogspot.com/2011/07/worshipping-on-sabbath-in-uppsala.html and http://ufunuo.blogspot.com/2011/09/stride-with-jesus-in-institutes-of.html, also faces students at Dartmouth and neighboring schools in New Hampshire (NH), USA. One of those challenges is that the nearest church is very far from some of the colleges. This Sabbath a group of students worshipped together for the first time. The Seventh-day Adventist Chaplain at Harvard (http://chaplains.harvard.edu/chaplains/profile.php?id=1114) led an interesting Bible discussion based on the second chapter of the first epistle of Peter that emphasized the need to live a Christ-centered life in the secular world. We also shared a testimony of how God helps students navigate their way in secular campuses. May we pray for this 'little flock' at Dartmouth as the Holy Spirit moves them to establish a sustainable campus ministry group that will cater for the spiritual needs of students in the NH area.
