Highs and Lows 2007 Part II

Slowly but surely, I’m bringing the year 2007 Highs and Lows to a close.

JUNE

 

– Low –

Frustrated with lay leaders which to me appeared to be bullying pastors 🙁

– High –

BLC council retreat at Cameron Highlands with other members joining us for the informal part, and visiting the Orang Asli congregation! It was great for the kids!

Conducting the Holy Communion for the Lutheran Youth Leadership Camp in Cameron Highlands.

Facilitating the International Day of Prayer for Children at Risk with Ian at BLC. It was one of those hey-we-managed-to-pull-off-an-intergenerational worship service kind of moment. And the added bonus was the excellent social emphasis as well.

Being there at the Revathi Candle light vigil organized by the MCCBCHST. And as usual, I get an extra boost when I see BLC members there!

A very meaningful Young Adult Camp with SIBKL at Port Dickson … I was encouraged by the openness I witnessed there 🙂

MAY

– Low –

Lina Joy’s appeal rejected by the Federal Court. Serious questions revolving our Malaysian Constitution emerged.

The “cancellation” of the Building Bridges event in Malaysia!

Being present at Alpha’s mom’s memorial … it was low in the sense we shared in Alpha and Adeline’s loss. But, Alpha’s Dad’s sharing of his relationship and love with his wife totally broke me down and connected me to true love.

– High –

Gotong Royong at BLC and seeing church members work together. Of course, the arrival of the Rainbow Hydrocleaner has since been such a blessing for cleanliness of the church premises!

Being at the enthronement for the new Bishop of the Anglican Diocese of Malaysia and hearing Archbishop Rowan Williams in person (even though we didn’t have a chance to meet in person!).

APRIL

– Low –

My cousin sister died and it was painful to see her kids saying goodbye to their mom.

– High –

Meeting Phil Baker … and getting a kick to do my Masters … there’s still a delayed effect but the kick was needed!
