In celebration of the almost 140 year old relationship between The Presbyterian Church in Canada and The Presbyterian Church in Taiwan, Knox College and the Yu-Shan Theological College and Seminary have entered into a five year agreement which includes student and faculty exchanges.
Beginning with a worship service and celebration held at Knox College on September 14, Dr. Pusin Tali, President of Yu-Shan, Principal Dorcas Gordon and Dr. Stephanie Ling, Convener of the Knox College Board of Governors, signed a copy of the agreement to reside at the College that will give each a better understanding of their respective heritages, particularly as they are both part of a historic Presbyterian Church Sister-Relationship.
To solidify the agreement, Principal Gordon will be traveling to Hualien, Taiwan, to sign the other copy of the agreement in the presence of Ma Cheng Kuei, Yu-Shan’s Convenor of the Board of Governors. She will be staying at the Seminary from October 24th until October 31st.
While in Taiwan, Principal Gordon will be participate in the Siang Lien lectureship, an endowed series at the Seminary that focuses on the practice of ministry as it relates to one of the scholarly disciplines. In addition to her lecture, titled “Biblical Interpretation and Preaching,” she will also be teaching in the Seminary’s new Doctor of Ministry program.
