Kicking off our Advent sermon series, we were blessed to have Rev. Dr. Tan Soo Inn, of Graceworks and a dear friend of BLC, as our guest speaker.

He spoke about the birth of John the Baptist from Luke 1:5-25; 57-80 and meditated on “Disappointments with God.” The recording of his sermon is available here:

Our Advent sermon series, themed “Prepare The Way Of The Lord” will continue throughout the season of Advent, leading up to Christmas Day:

BLC - Advent 2015 - Prepare The Way

Guest Speaker This Sun, 29 Nov 2015 – Rev. Dr. Tan Soo Inn

BLC - Advent 2015 - Prepare The Way

This Sunday, we enter into the Advent season, themed “Prepare The Way Of The Lord.”

Advent is a time of expectant waiting and preparation for the coming of Jesus, from two different perspectives: to share in the ancient longing for the coming of the Messiah, and to be alert for his Second Coming. As Christians we live in a time of now and not yet.

FREE Seminar: Spiritual Friendship – Following Jesus In The Company Of Friends – Dr. Tan Soo Inn

Soo Inn Yoda

Our friend, Dr. Tan Soo Inn, of Graceworks (and whom you might remember as our awesome camp speaker last year) will be conducting his first public lecture in Malaysia for a long, long time.

The FREE seminar is entitled, “Spiritual Friendship – Following Jesus In The Company Of Friends” and will explore how we live in an increasingly lonely world, even in the church; yet Jesus has called us His friends and wants His disciples to follow him in community (John 15:9-17). So how can we do this?

  • Date: Friday, 21 August 2015
  • Time: 8pm-10pm
  • Venue: PJ CTEE (Luther Centre) Level 5, Semenyih Room, No. 6, Jalan Utara, 46200 Petaling Jaya

The seminar will focus on two key aspects of spiritual friendship. First, it will look at the biblical teaching on spiritual friendship – what is it, and why is it so important? Next, it will explore how we can actually do it – what are some of the practical ways we can follow Jesus in the company of friends.

“We are living in difficult times in Malaysia. God has called us to be faithful witnesses so that we can shine in the darkness. We can only do this in community.” 

Registration is FREE, but please confirm attendance by emailing: engtee[at]stm2[dot]edu[dot]my.

We Are Back From Church Camp 2014!


It’s been several weeks since we all got back safe and sound from Church Camp 2014 at Refreshing Springs Resort, spending four days and three nights dwelling on what it means to “Engage Deeply – with God, within, without.

Throughout camp, it was very encouraging to see much “engaging” happening – whether it was through personal devotional times and engaging God through nature, through one-on-one and small group discussions, through planned activities, or even through chilling and relaxing at the hot springs! For some, the deep engagement (with God, within and without!) occurred during the Flying Fox activity!

Preach and teach, he did.
