On June 14th, 2014, we gratefully celebrated our 46th Commencement in which 28 graduates received the following degrees:2 students for Master of Theology, 3 for Master of Care and Counseling, 7 for Master of Div., 15 for the Certificate for Grassroots Ministry, and 1 for Master Certificate in Lay Ministry.
Rei-Hen Weng, President of Tao-Sheng Theological Seminary, was invited to be the commencement speaker. He is also an outstanding alumni of CLS. President Weng used Matthew 10:16 to encourage the graduates to be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves. He especially mentioned people who received the calls from the Lord, must be ready to take up challenges and to endure persecutions. Therefore, it is important to be flexible and wise as the snake while the challenge comes, and to be obedient and tender as the dove in following the Holy Spirit’s lead.
After the sermon, the acting President, Dr. Yu and Dean of Academic Affairs, Ewrin Chen, awarded the degrees, Missionary Ms. Anna Sæther led the commission ceremony. Anna was from Norway Lutheran Mission. She devoted most of her life in
and spent a long period of time serving the CLS community. She was sent to Taiwan while
she was a young women and now she prayed for those young graduates to keep
preaching and serving faithfully for the Lord. Taiwan
