Shrove Tuesday Pancake Party

029

We had a wonderful Shrove Tuesday Pancake Party in Bangsar Lutheran Church tonight. It was a simple program with a light touch of combining the best of Lent and the best of Chinese New Year. I hoped that our gathering was also a kind of reunion dinner too with pancakes as a special of course, but also that BLC is the family for many who are far away from their families, or unable to have a reunion dinner with them. It was great to have the BLC family and friends just enjoy each other (and the food) together. No big agenda, but opening up the space for free interaction.

Of course, Ian did an excellent job explaining briefly on Lent, Shrove Tuesday, the practices of fasting, praying and alms giving during the Lenten season, and little extras here and there.

The Pancake flipping exercise was a wonderful highlight. Especially for those of us who hardly step into the kitchen. As usual Ian does a great demo everytime!

Katharine (Ian’s amazing wonderful wife) did a big bulk of the work in preparation. Others chipped in for cakes, rice, noodles, and even Chinese New year cookies.

It was a good night … a high for me for sure 🙂 I’ll let the pictures do the talking now (the sharper ones by Choo Ki, and more amateur ones by me:-) ).

I really had a good time. And while I know of the many imperfections of BLC, tonight is a night where BLC shone brightly! I love this church …
