Divinity School professor Dr. Noriel C. Capulong is the Speaker. He reflects on this year's Founders Day theme: “Submitting to the Refiner's Fire.”
This year's Founders Day theme is inspired by two scriptures:
For He will be like a refiner’s fire… and refine them all like gold and silver.”
1 Peter 1:6 -7
In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that your faith – of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire – may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed.
