2013 is a milestone year for the Lutheran Church of Malaysia, in that it is celebrating its 60th anniversary. Rev. Calvin Lim visited our congregation and shared with us the LCM’s plans to celebrate this momentous achievement.
The theme for the 60th Anniversary celebration is “Blessed to be a blessing“.
For the past 60 years, LCM had passed through mountains and valleys, but it is obvious that we have experienced God’s blessings. The LCM has been blessed by God in many ways, and it is important that we now see ourselves as a channel of God’s blessings to others.
God blesses us and then calls us to be a blessing. If we truly love our neighbors as ourselves, we should share the blessings we have with our family and friends.
It then went on to highlight some of the upcoming activities – so block your calendars accordingly and make plans to support!
