BLC's Community Blog - the Gatherings, Life Groups, discipleship, social issues, prayers, worship experiences, insights into the Scripture... no random statements of who we had lunch with and what our dogs ate for breakfast. The place where strangers get to know us as a community, who we are, what we're like, how we function, and to experience what it'll be like to be a part of us.

BLC Map 2006

Map of Bangsar Lutheran Church

I think this is a more "detailed" map that might help newcomers if they need help to come to the Father's House - the gathering place of Bangsar Lutheran Church!

I know informally we call this place Rumah Papa or the Father's House. But I thought to make it easy for "searching" I just used our official designation Bangsar Lutheran Church :-)

BLC Website EXTREME Makeover?

Well ... perhaps not so EXTREME-lah! After some years using the free tripod site here, we've moved to and already have a simple new design (thanks to Moh Foong) with gradual improvements in progress.

Second Thoughts on Children and More...

"The church's ministry to children is broken…It's broken when church leaders and senior pastors see children's ministry primarily as a marketing tool…Something is broken when we trivialize God to our children…It's broken when we depend on our programs and our curriculum to introduce our children to God—not our families and communities…And perhaps most importantly, it's broken when the church tells parents that its programs can spiritually nurture their children better than they can." —Ivy Beckwith in Postmodern Children's Ministry

My involvement in church as a child was sporadic, preferring basketball and kung fu on Sundays. I started attending regularly as a youth. After seminary, my main focus was as a youth and worship pastor; so it wasn't until recently that I even really thought much about children's ministry. For more click here
