Unfolding His Story
During his time as Bishop the Diocese experienced the touch of the Holy Spirit through the charismatic renewal. Bp Chiu has fought the good fight, he has finished the race, he has kept the faith. The evening was reverent, worshipful and caring. More than 60 percent of participants asked to be prayed for. Not just for physical healing, but spiritual as well. The evening was a follow-up on sessions held earlier this year in May when Ps Peter Troung led hundreds in healing prayers. Healing Services are being planned for once every two months from January next year. These services will dovetail with a little known small prayer group that meets regularly on every third Sunday from 9am to 9. The group prays for people who are known not to be well and those who have requested special prayers. All are welcome to join. May God continue to manifest His glory during our Healing Services! He gave them their first Holy Communion. There is a deeper spiritual teaching. Not only do we see Christ use show His glory and use His power to change the physical make-up of water into wine, He also has the power to change our lives into something better. He can transform our lives! This is the message that we are apt to miss because the physical change of water to wine is visually more exciting. But His power to touch our lives when we need it is the bigger message. Everyone is a familiar face — someone somewhere you have seen in church, but can never quite place. Kyle Koh has been a familiar face for as long as I can remember. I have seen Kyle, 16, around our church for many years but never had the opportunity to actually have a conversation with him. Kyle is the eldest, followed by Isabel and Jadyn. Kyle started drawing back when he was in kindergarten. At that time he did not think those drawings were artistic. He simply drew anything that came to mind. Kyle has since blossomed into the mature artist we see today. He has crossed over from the minor leagues to the major leagues. Art has been a passion for Kyle. He has never been diverted from it, like some boys who tend to hop from one hobby to another, from drawing to video games to sports, and back again. Kyle says he never really had any other hobby. By his estimates, he spends an hour or two daily drawing. Putting this into perspective: As Kyle draws for an hour and a half daily, over the past 10 years, that is about 4, hours of practice! Kyle has amassed a portfolio of some artworks and he has not given any indication that he is slowing down. What is next for Kyle? This young man is open to wherever God leads him. For now he is considering a course at the Laselle College of the Arts. Who knows, he may even play a part in designing our th Anniversary logo! Pastor Daniel Koh spoke on Amazing Grace. And it was amazing how grace filled the camp. Participants were agreed this was one of the best camps yet — not only for the message and fellowship but for the hotel rooms, facilities and makan-makan! May 1 The Meeting Place enjoyed its second module of physio therapy on May Physio therapists from East Coast Pratitioners came by to help members assess their propensity to fall and taught them various exercises to help them strengthen their limbs. Members were also taught how to recover from falls. April 1 Fellowship With Tea on Tuesdays The Meeting Place will be launched on 12 April to provide a place and time of fellowship for our retirees, seniors and even our still young members in Church. Pre-believers are also welcome. Except for June and December, this tea time fellowship will be held every second and fourth Tuesdays of the month from 2. Most times, thematic teas will be served alongside worship, devotion, talks, board games, bingo, arts and craft, sing-alongs, film shows, etc. Do come and have a time of fun and worship in Daniel Hall! Bring a friend to know our Friend Good Friday and Easter are just round the corner. How much there is to look forward to! They remind us that the Lord died for us. They remind us that he defeated death when He rose again to save us from our sins. How great is His love for us! Catching up on news in Singapore, I am led to write pastorally to the Anglican flock entrusted to me as Diocesan Bishop — a responsibility I share with the bishops, priests and deaconesses who serve alongside me. The public discussion in the media concerning the coming Madonna concert in Singapore surfaces a the need for Christians to walk in the light of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus, and also b the role of the Church as a faithful witness to the society she is part of. Let me address these briefly in turn. Should Christians go to the Madonna concert? Having come to Jesus Christ for forgiveness of our sins and newness of life, we are to choose to walk in the light and to shun the darkness: If we say we have fellowship with Him while we walk in darkness, we lie and do not practise the truth. But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin. What language, values and images will one expose oneself to at the Madonna concert? If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride of life—is not from the Father but is from the world. Thirdly, our choices and the conduct that follows affects the witness of Christians before a watching world. This includes our responsible participation as a Church in the public square of ideas, discussions and decisions in our society. When NCCS learnt of the coming Madonna concert, we made direct representation to Media Development Authority MDA to convey our grave concerns about the content of Madonna concerts and its profane use of religious symbols. As NCCS leaders, we have also conveyed in private to the authorities who govern and oversee the public space our question on the wisdom of allowing such shows in Singapore in a mass event setting. On the one hand is artistic license and popular appeal. But on the other is an artiste who has chosen to brazenly embody and stridently promote self-indulgent and antinomian against moral law values which, in our view, are contrary to the well-being and future of our nation. In making known our views in appropriate ways at the level of public discourse, we are not forcing our views on others but conveying our faith-based values as fellow-citizens in an intermediary organisation to the national conversation of what is best for Singapore. In taking a position on the Madonna concert, the Church can be cast as being moralistic or arrogantly prescriptive for everybody else. That is not our intention or motivation. The Church is not simply anti-this or anti-that. Finally, life is about choices… choices made by a society, a family and an individual. This is true also for Madonna. As hot-button issues continue to surface in every society and every age, pray that the Church and the Christian within her fold will be enabled by the Holy Spirit to take a clear, biblical position, to be bold and humble in posture and to be invitational and winsome in witness to the world that God so loved and continues to love Jn 3: We make clear our position, we live our lives authentically and we pray fervently 2 Cor To God be the glory in your life and mine, and in our life together as people redeemed by His grace in Christ Jesus. It is a snapshot of what our church is, our members, our services and our ministries. This will be used primarily to welcome our guests and first-time visitors.
