ABOUT THE BOOK
“Parting is such sweet sorrow,” so said Shakespeare. What does one say to another when it is time to depart? Parting words can often be difficult to utter as we see in Acts 20:17-38. The apostle Paul’s parting words to the elders of Ephesus caused everyone to weep because they knew they would not see him again. In the Second Letter to Timothy, Paul uttered his farewell words to his young assistant. If we find ourselves in a similar situation and are at a loss for words, this wonderfully crafted parting piece can adequately speak on our behalf.
The material for this book first came to life as a series of 12 sermons preached from mid-2005 to mid-2006 to the congregation of Wesley Methodist Church Segamat in Johor. This book is dedicated to all the members and friends of Wesley Methodist Church Segamat who patiently sat through these sermons and offered valuable support and feedback for improvement.
