Countdown to Merdeka 2008: Restoration of Hope!

It’s on folks, and we welcome more to join us … read on!

On October 10 – 11, a group of friends and fellow pilgrims on the journey have decided to bring our minds and hearts into a common focus. You are invited to join us along the way.

Spend 1 ½ days with a team of cutting-edge theological thinkers and social scientific thinkers like Tricia Yeoh, Rev Dr Jojo Fung, Dr Helen Ting, Dr Sherman Kuek, Rev Sivin Kit, Veronica Ann Retnam, Alwyn Lau, and P. Sakthivel as they describe, interpret and analyse the current state of our nation from a Christian perspective. Together, we will then try to work out a concrete plan for a restoration of hope for Malaysia.

There is a certain open ended-ness (or “open source”-ness) in the agenda more so because we cannot orchestrate end results prematurely in times like today. But what we can do is to converge our individual efforts, cross-fertilize ideas, cultivate new networks, and work out baby steps forward together.

We worked out a basic framework we can all explore together … this is a chance also to affirm existing efforts as well as forge new ones. Shall we the Church in all it’s shapes and sizes, forms and functions … emerge from our slumber or sense of inadequacy … and converge towards a future together with all our unique gifts and contributions?
