Save your trash today. Look at how much you have; think of ways to reduce waste.
Memorize a Scripture passage about hunger. Pray for those without food today.
As announced in church, 3 March 2012, 9:30am-11:30am will be our Worship Enablers All-Hands Meeting. The purpose of this meeting is to help all worship-enablers understand better what the worship life of the church is about. We will talk about understanding what happens in a typical BLC Service, the Lutheran perspectives behind it, as well as a quick overview of what each role does during the service.
Our schedule will look something like this on Saturday:
- 9:00am – Early bird special – breakfast courtesy of Leigh! (15 pax)
- 9:30am – A time of Worship & Devotion
- 9:45am – Our Shared Understandings: What Happens In A BLC Worship Service?
- 10:15am – Our Shared Understandings: The Roles & Responsibilities Of Worship Enablers
- 10:45am – Open Discussion: What Can We Do To Deepen The Worship Life Of BLC?
- 11:15am – A time of Prayer
- 11:30am – Optional: Lunch together, courtesy of BLC
All other regular BLC Worshippers are welcome too!
This is also a great opportunity for all those who wanted to be a part of the Worship Enablers team, but 1) Didn’t know what it was about and would like more information; or 2) wanted a “springboard” like this to join in.
Even if you just wanted to come and understand why we, as Christians, “worship” – you are welcome to join us too!
Please indicate attendance! In view of the fact that we are preparing food for lunch, kindly indicate your attendance and how many pax to me.
Give your blessings specific names. Prayer is powerful when it is specific.
Today, the first Sunday in Lent, John shared a reflection themed “Following Jesus during Lent”.
The quote of the day likely goes to what he said about Christian Fellowship is akin to being like the Mafia, rather than being a mercenary (You’ll have to ask him to explain that one).
SMILE because your glass is half full, not half empty! Make your day.
Thanks to Chin Hor, who was instrumental in making this documentary, we will be having a private screening of “Rising Sun Over Malaya“, today, Friday, 24 February 2012, at 8 pm in The Father’s House.

This Lent, as we strip down non-essentials, let’s also reexamine the meta-narratives regarding this period of our nation’s history – the Japanese Occupation – and hear from eyewitnesses who lived during that time. And let’s see it on the big screen with a full sound system.
Friday night Lenten prayer and reflection proper will commence next week. Although, viewing this documentary would very much aid our prayer, reflection and intercession for this here country of ours.
All are welcome!
