Friends 2007: Coming up Next Week [9]

Join the conversations on:

GOSPEL – more than we imagined it to be

What are the “versions” of the gospel … in the minds of church members and pastors today in Malaysia? What are the consequences of believing these “versions”? Where do we get our influences and what do we need to take note?

CHURCH – ways forward beyond forms and technique

How do people Christians and non Christians view “Church”? What occupies the minds of our pastors and church leaders? How do we wrestle with institutional as well as non-institutional aspects of church?

DISCIPLESHIP – tired of shortcuts and superficiality

How do people see their Christian life today? How is discipleship and/or spiritual formation happening now in our churches? Are their any new directions, paradigms or practices Christians are experimenting? What are their strengths and weaknesses? Where is the role of the Bible in this process? what is the place of church history or traditions – east or west?

WORLD – being ready for active engagement

How do we view our world – e.g nation? what role can we play in terms of transformation? What is transformation? What does it look like? Where do we get our ideas of what kind of transformation needs to take place?

For the first time in Malaysia, influential speaker and author Brian McLaren and Conversation Partners touch on challenges and opportunities facing the 21st Century Church.
