"I am grateful to Eden for shaping my call for the future."

“I strongly felt my call of being a seminary teacher in China when I was at Eden. Before then I was working as an interpreter for China Christian Council and not sure where I could mostly devote myself. I enjoyed the passionate and knowledgeable faculty and I am grateful to the loving and caring community of Eden. I appreciate the openness in academic and theological areas. I learned to respect others who hold different theological ideas and to think theologically when reading any books. My professors helped remind me of my Chinese roots so that I can think and read from a Chinese perspective without criticism, instead of taking in all the western ideas. The theological and pedagogical training at Eden has strongly supported me in my work at Nanjing Seminary, where I can better help my students who are going to be the pastors, researchers or teachers in other churches and seminaries. I am grateful to Eden for shaping my call for the future.”
