This will simply be a nodal-landmark-pivotal moment in Malaysian church history ... to draw on such a distinguished & respected panel of conversation partners in order to chart a 'faint' path forward for the Malaysian church.

May this be the start of many more meaningful conversations.

Thanks for bringing Brian McLaren here. Please ensure it's all download-able ok?

God Bless!
