Blessed Christmas Day!

We were blessed with a wonderful, simple and meaningful service today.

Our artist friend, Komeil, did an amazing live painting during the service! Here’s the end result:

We also had BLC Family members present Christmas carols in sign language! Check out their practice session here:

We also had Pastor Sivin will also finish up his Advent and Christmas sermon series with, “Christ’s Presence In The Shadows.” Of course, there was the usual pop-culture reference to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story… with Sivin all decked out in what he calls his “Jedi Robes” (*cough* vestments *cough*).

You can check out Sivin’s snazzy sermon Prezi here.

Of course, no celebration is complete without the BLC Family enjoying a meal together. We loved the delicious food catered from our neighbors – Lubuk Bangku D’Cabin Cafe. It was delicious! They’re right opposite us – so feel free to check them out during the week.

#FirstFriday at BLC – 8:15pm, 7 June 2013

Holden Evening Prayer

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, First Friday meetings have included moments of silent prayer, art, scripture reading and reflection, and songs.

This Friday’s service will be set to the Holden Evening Prayer. Here’s a brief description of it from the web: Written in 1985-1986 while liturgical composer Marty Haugen was the musician-in-residence at Holden Village, a Lutheran retreat center in Washington State, this lovely setting of vespers follows the traditional form while using contemporary and inclusive language. Contents include “Service of Light,” Evening Hymn-“Joyous Light of Heav’nly Glory,” “Evening Thanksgiving,” “The Annunciation,” “The Magnificat,” “Litany and Prayers,” and “Final Blessing.”

We seek to provide 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!

Kindly RSVP via this Facebook Public Event page here. This is an open event, so please feel free to invite your family, friends, acquaintances, or other loved ones!

Happy Easter season, everyone! Our First Friday of the Easter season is going to be a suitably colorful session featuring reflection, experimental art and also music, led by Johnben Loy 🙂

It has been said, “a picture is worth a thousand words.”

This Friday, we invite you to come to express your worship for an hour through visual art and music.

When you come in at 8:15pm (or even if you are late), find for yourself a table or a board with a large piece of art paper and some pastels. (Those of you who prefer sculpture, feel free to bring along your own materials.) There will be an instruction sheet to help guide you in how to participate. Then…

… create your art of worship to God from your heart, individually, in community.

No prior training is necessary; only a desire to engage in creative worship.

Art materials will be prepared enough for 15 participants. If more than 15 people are signed up on this Facebook page before this Friday (5 April), we are able to prepare more materials.

We will provide worship music, live, on the piano. And if you can play by ear, bring your instrument along and we can jam (and sing) softly to God while others worship through visual arts.

At the end of the hour, we will share our pieces with one another. Those who are willing may leave their pieces to be displayed at the Father’s House.

Come and flow.
