Meet Me

Good day to you! My name is Flint, a creative way to abbreviate Fes LIbrary E-NewsleTter. Believe it or not, my name was inspired by the game Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Flint is a rock used to ignite a spark. It becomes handy especially when the hero Link, needs to start a campfire or light a torch in the wilderness. Thus, this is how I got my name.

 

I hope that my existence will kindle a fire that lights the path to good resources for our spiritual journey. How will I do that? I shall highlight new titles acquired by the FES Library as well as review some books. Should you have any great ideas that you want to explore with me, don’t hesitate to write to fes.library@fessingapore.org. It will be my pleasure to see how I can walk with you better in this journey.

 

As for now, enjoy the reading!
