1. Everyone is invited to pick a song to share.
It can be a hymn that we’ll sing or listen to together on YouTube.
It could be something you’ve written yourself and that we’ll be hearing for the very first time.
2. Tell a story about this song.
The best kind of story, of course, is your own. Tell us how the song you chose is a reminder of an important moment in your life, whether a time of crisis, despair, revelation, searching, or celebration.
Or you could even tell us the story of how the song came to be (especially if you wrote it yourself!). Many hymns have great stories behind them, too, and the lives of the writers who penned the powerful words and tunes have inspired great biographies and even a movie or two.
3. When each person has shared both their story and their song, she/he will state a prayer request.
It could be a matter directly related to the song/story, or it could be something else that the Holy Spirit has placed on your heart.
We will lift that matter up in prayer together before passing the time to the next person.

Join us for a quiet evening in this corner of Bangsar, away from the bustle of Friday night KL.
Get to know a friend or fellow BLC-ian better.
Maybe make an altogether new friend!
(Yes, please bring with you anyone who you think would be blessed by being at this gathering as well!)
We’ll provide some cookies so that those who wish to make themselves a cup of coffee, tea or Milo will have something to dunk in their beverages in case there was no time for proper dinner before 🙂

About First Fridays:
First Fridays are monthly evening gatherings at Bangsar Lutheran Church: A simple hour of contemplative and reflective worship for those seeking an “alternative” space to slow down at the end of the week… a respite from the busyness of our daily experience and a chance to renew our strength in God’s presence and one another’s fellowship.
In the past, this meeting has included moments of silent prayer, art, scripture reading and reflection, and songs.
First Fridays are an experimental space to share fresh approaches, as well as to revisit age-old traditions in Christian worship. Guests are invited to suggest readings, music and other prayer & thought points for future meeting. Please feel free to contact any of the event hosts/admins with your ideas!
This is an open event – so please feel free to invite your friends! A public Facebook Event Page has also been set up for you to share readily – click here.
See you this Friday!
