Dimapur, November 22: The second Late Rev. Dr. I. Ben Wati Legacy Talk organized by ELIM Resource Centre (ERC), Guwahati in partnership with Eastern Theological College, Jorhat was held on November 18 at ETC Campus, Jorhat, Assam. Representatives from Clark Theological College (Aolijen), Manipur Theological College (Manipur), Oriental Theological Seminary (Dimapur) and host Eastern Theological College attended this legacy talk. 

In her welcome address, Lucy Pau, Director ERC stated that Ben's Legacy talk is organized to bring to mind the testament of how his life has impacted many Christian leaders from across denominations and organisations, and to encourage the younger generations to emulate his life and ministry.

Rev. Dr. Ngul Khan Pau, Senior Consultant (DAI) in his paper 'The need of Mentoring in Theological institution' mentioned that "while it is true that intellectual growth is a result of information, holistic growth requires much more than the impartation of information."

The second paper on the topic 'The need for Spiritual Discipline in the Theological College' context was presented by Dr Cindy L Perry, South Asia Director DAI. 

The participants also had intense discussions on the questions raised by the presenters and respondents. A significant outcome from the discussions was the realization about the need to address or re-address the issues of mentoring and spiritual discipline in a proactive manner in theological institutions, and more importantly to develop a culture that works towards the holistic development of the individual, the church and the community. 

In his closing remark, Rev. Dr. Pau mentioned that these characteristics of mentoring and spiritual discipline were hallmarks of Ben Wati's life and ministry: a legacy that should be continued through generations hereafter. (Page News Service)
