Our friends at Luther House Chapel will host a seminar on “A Christian Response to Bio-Ethics”, conducted by Dr. Alex Tang.
  • Date: 15 August 2015
  • Time: 9:00am-4:00pm
  • Venue: Luther House Chapel: 37, Jalan SS4C/5, Taman Rasa Sayang, 47301 Petaling Jaya
  • Registration is only RM20 (for materials and refreshments)
  • Walk-ins are welcome

The topics covered will include issues concerning “the beginning of life” and abortion; issues surrounding “non-natural conception” such as infertility, IVF and stem cells; issues about “end of life” like euthanasia and dying with dignity; as well as issues concerning organ transplantation.

Dr. Alex Tang is both a medical professional as well as a practical theologian with a Doctor of Ministry degree. That is a rare combination that will give a more wholistic approach from both disciplines.

#BLCAdventXmas2014: Advent & Christmas 2014

BLCAdventChristmas2014

With today’s celebration of Doom/Christ the King Sunday, we begin the liturgical calendar anew and enter into the season of Advent, a time of expectant waiting and preparation for the coming of Jesus. For Christians, the season of Advent anticipates the coming of Christ from two different perspectives: to share in the ancient longing for the coming of the Messiah, and to be alert for his Second Coming.

The theme of readings and teachings during Advent is often to prepare for the Second Coming while commemorating the First Coming of Christ at Christmas. With the view of directing the thoughts of Christians to the first coming of Jesus Christ as Savior and to his second coming as judge, special readings are prescribed for each of the four Sundays in Advent.

As we journey towards Christmas, we would like to invite you to join us on the various activities we have lined up this Advent and Christmas season and focus our thoughts collectively on the theme, “Arise, Shine, For Your Light Has Come!

May you and your loved ones be especially blessed this Advent and Christmastime.

All events are open events – please invite your loved ones and friends to join us this season. Kindly note that some of the services occur outside of our regular 10am service times (namely: 7 Dec, 21 Dec, 25 Dec, and 31 Dec).

Reminder: This Sunday, 8 Dec 2013, 6:30pm – 2nd Sun in Advent – Peace: Festival of the 9 Lessons & Carols

BLC Advent-Christmas 2013

Reminder: This Sunday, 8 December 2013, 6:30pm, we will be celebrate the 2nd Sunday in Advent with the Festival of the 9 Lessons and Carols. This will be a combined service with Luther House Chapel. Please note: this will be an evening service and there is no morning service. Light supper will also be served after the service.

The offering from the service will also go towards a mission is to raise enough funds to buy 2 motorboats for the Pulau Banding Orang Asli community. Pulau Banding is in Temenggor Lake, Perak with an estimated community of 1,600 people.

OrangAsliPulauBanding

(The Pulau Banding Orang Asli previously lived on dry land before the Temenggor Dam was built. Since then, they have had to adjust to a new life with different living skills to adapt. They live in shanty huts with leaky roofs and need to learn how to live off the water. Because of the remoteness of their location, there is no piped water supply; no food without fishing, hunting or gathering; or no sanitation services. Without a good boat, access to civilization is severely limited: it is difficult to send children to school; gain access to jobs as well as medical services and maternity care. All this is why the Pulau Banding community needs the two motorboats.)

The Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols is a format for a service of Christian worship celebrating the birth of Jesus. The story of the fall of humanity, the promise of the Messiah, and the birth of Jesus is told in nine short Bible readings from Genesis, the prophetic books and the Gospels, interspersed with the singing of Christmas carolshymns and choir music.

  1. First Lesson: Genesis 2:15-17; 3:1-19
  2. Second Lesson: Genesis 22:6-18
  3. Third Lesson: Isaiah 9:2-7
  4. Fourth Lesson: Isaiah 11:1-9
  5. Fifth Lesson: Luke 1:26-38
  6. Sixth Lesson: Luke 2:1-7
  7. Seventh Lesson: Luke 2:8-20
  8. Eighth Lesson: Matthew 2:1-12
  9. Ninth Lesson: John 1:1-14 

The best-known version is broadcast annually from King’s College, Cambridge, on Christmas Eve. It features carols sung by the famous Choir of King’s College, Cambridge:
