Bangsar Lutheran Church has the privilege to be one of the hosts for this event!!!! 
We are excited about this. It is a good opportunity for us to explore the beauty of liturgy, and be part of the journey that is already started by many groups of Christians around the world.

In this event, we will be able to see the beautiful art that’s been created for this project, pray these collected prayers with a gathering of friends, sing these songs and take them home with you, knowing that you’re not alone, but part of an incredible family of fellow travelers that stretches all the way back to Abraham and Sarah.
