͗ᅕᄉពThe Bishop’s Message

Reformation Starts From Within After more than 490 years since Martin

Luther nailed the 95 Theses to the door of the Castle Church, Reformation Sunday has become a special festival for many Lutheran churches around the world. We celebrate the occasion by retelling the story of the reformer, by singing his hymns, and by holding special services with much enthusiasm and pomp. All these external activities are helpful indeed in our effort to commemorate the watershed event that took place on 31 Oct 1517, but it is equally important to remember that Luther’s main intention was not so much to create another church festival for celebration. Instead, his primary hope was that every follower of Christ would experience the real reformation – a reformation of the heart and of the mind. Luther writes, “But the papists…want to reform to the church through external ceremonies and morals. However, if the doctrine has not been reformed, it is futile to undertake the reformation of morals.” It is timely to be reminded again that being a Lutheran means more than having our membership in a Lutheran Church. It is definitely much more than having pictures of Dr. Martin on the walls of our homes or offices. Instead, being a Lutheran means faithfully living out our Christian life holding on to the true gospel, as re-discovered by Luther in the 16th century. In other words, we must regularly submit ourselves to be living expressions of the tenets of the Reformation – Christ alone, Grace alone, Faith alone and Word alone. As the year draws slowly to a close, and as we prepare for the season of Advent, I pray that our pastors and members would truly experience an inner reformation each and every day. As Luther puts it, we

need to return to our baptismal grace daily to overcome the influence of sins in our lives. My family and I would like to take this opportunity to wish all our congregations a joy-filled Christmas. Thank you for all the works of your hands in the past 12 months, and let us pray for another fruitful year as we continue our journey with the Master. In Christ, Bishop Philip Lok

His total unreservedness in the ministry of spreading the gospel and his love for Christ and strong sense of mission are shining examples to us who are from the younger generations.

In Reforming the Church?

why

did Martin Luther succeed in bringing about the religious Reformation in the 16th Century? This is quite an interesting question, because he was not the first person who tried to introduce changes. Since the middle of the 13th Century, leaders in the Church knew that the Church was being corrupted and that changes were urgently needed. Off and on, there would be someone trying to initiate certain changes but eventually to no avail. It was only Martin Luther who succeeded in reforming the Church. Why? Before Martin Luther, there were church reformers who were conscientious, determined, driving and learned.They tried all sorts of ways to eradicate the Church of abuses. But only Martin Luther made it. Some people contribute his success to the support and help of his friends and some noblemen. However, comparing to those before him, Martin Luther did not have that much more advantage. Upon closer study, it is not difficult to note a major difference between his ways and those of his predecessors. His predecessors mainly went after certain corrupt abuses and systems. Of course Luther was concerned about these abuses. However, he was more concerned about the root cause of these corrupt behaviour and systems: the wrong teachings. He

dealt with the abuses from the perspective of the Holy Word and stressed the need to return to the Word. That’s where he got it right! Reformation erupted because of the discussion of the Indulgences (1517-1518). However, the actual event leading to the Reformation was the debate held at University of Leipzig (1519). This discussions did touch on the corruptions in those days; however, it also brought to the surface the doctrinal understandings on forgiveness of sins, the real nature of the Church and the true meaning of salvation. Martin Luther’s success was due to the fact that he did not just go after the corrupt behaviours; he also went after the Biblical teachings and doctrines behind those behaviours. As a matter of fact, a person will always behave according to what he believes. The previous reforming attempts focused only on the deeds but not on the faith of the church. As such, it was not thorough enough. Martin Luther’s reformation went straight to the faith level, from there then to the deeds, and eventually reformed the Church. We all know the three principles of the Reformation, i.e. ‘sola fide’, ‘sola scriptura’, ‘sola gratia’. These three principles of Faith, Bible and Grace Alones are doctrinal in nature. Some people might have the misconception that such discussions on doctrines have nothing to do with Christian’s

daily life. And thus people tend to overlook these doctrines, or even treat lightly the achievements of Martin Luther’s Reformation. As a matter of fact, doctrines are closely relevant to daily life. Let us take these three principles as an example. If one could put the three together in one complete sentence, one would have grasped what the Reformation is all about precisely. For example, we could say: ‘Embrace the Grace of the Bible by Faith.’ This saying, surely, comes from three doctrinal propositions; however, it is also surely closely related to practices of believers’ daily life. It is very practical and is inseparable from daily life! This is a classic example of how doctrines influence life. Martin Luther realized the connection between doctrines and life, and thus began his reforming career from this perspective. This is why Luther eventually succeeded in bringing about the Reformation. Christians are descendants of the Reformation. Today, there might be many different Christian groups promoting different sorts of ‘reformations’. Definitely, they all hope that their efforts promotion could become long-lasting movements with positive influences and results in the Church. If so, what can we learn from Martin Luther?

Martin Luther posited that worship should be conducted in German rather than Latin. He thus saw an immediate need for a large repertory of new chorales. He composed some chorale melodies himself, such as A Mighty Fortress. For other chorales he used Gregorian Chant melodies used in Catholic worship and fitted them with a new German text. A famous example is Christ lag in Todesbanden, which is based on the tune of the Catholic Easter Sequence Victimae Paschali Laudes. Today, many of the Lutheran chorales are familiar as hymns still used in Protestant churches, sung in four-voice harmony. Often the harmonizations are taken from the final sections of cantatas by Johann Sebastian Bach. The melodies of the chorales were only in a few instances composed by Johann Sebastian (JS)Bach; the large majority of melodies were based on chorales that were already familiar to his congregation.


ζ̓‫ܥٿ‬Reflection

Dinner at Uncle Boris's “i

don't know if all large families indulge in such orgies of self-abuse, but we make a specialty of it. I don't think it's pretense either. I mean, it's not like we believe secretly we are really superior and this is just talk. Our family is a story of endless errors of judgment, of bad situations made even worse by bickering.” Thus writes Charles Simic in his essay Dinner at Uncle Boris's. Although my age can be expressed in decades, I am a freshly minted Lutheran. The in- scription on this coin is from about two years ago. But I came to faith in Christ when I was in Scotland, a country impacted early by the reformation of the church, and the Scots are not apologetic about it: even today you can walk around the city of Edinburgh and observe street plaques declare where Protestants died for their beliefs. And you can observe plaques on churches which declare the names of many denominations. Like Uncle Boris's family, the church does not censor it's history. Reformation faith resulted in many people leaving the Western (Roman) church in the 16th century and forming new, Protestant churches. The modern historian, Mark Noll, lists the Diet of Worms of 1521 CE as one of twelve Turning Points or Decisive Moments in the history of Christianity. At Worms, Martin Luther, whom Pope Leo X called 'the wild boar from the forest,' was declared an outlaw and his writings were banned by the Christian Emperor, Charles V. [Luther had been excommunicated by Pope Leo

on Reformation Sunday By Rama (Bangsar Lutheran Church) X prior to the Diet of Worms]. I am used to bickering. As a child, I accompanied my mother on a visit to India. We went during wedding season. We stayed with numerous relatives and attending wedding after wedding. My main recollections are of bickering, of dredging up old stories of hurts, of denied requests for help, of scandals. The women would sit together and speak of these things, bluntly. The men would sit separately and speak of these things, bluntly. Even I, a five year old kid, would be reminded that years ago my father had not sent the bank draft uncle so-and-so had requested (in writing) for his daughter's wedding. At Worms, Luther's writings were reviewed. In 1520 alone, Luther had published five major books. The titles are revealing: Treatise on Good Works, The Papacy of Rome, Address to the Christian Nobility of the German Nation, Babylonian Captivity of the Church and The Freedom of a Christian. Luther dealt with big subjects. Luther dealt blows to the authorities and Luther dealt blows to the hearts of ordinary citizens. I don't know what Luther wrote about in letters to his relatives. Somehow I think his letters would have said much about God and Godly aspirations – and little about gifts.

So what does Reformation Sunday mean for me? It is, most of all, a scheduled reminder that we are to live in the knowledge of our human condition. We are to remember that history is transparent, there for all to see. We are to remember that even Biblical history does not hide the faults of characters God chooses, loves and uses. We are to recognize that unity is a goal, not a present reality. And that living in community, with all the pains including those inflicted by conversations, is an integral part of the Christian life. Reformation Sunday means we are to know our history: not just to learn from mistakes made, but to recognize that mistakes are common, indeed inevitable. Observing Reformation Sunday helps us remain in churches even when we would like to flee. Reformation Sunday is a day for reflecting on our freedom and on our being under authority. In Luther's words, “A Christian is a perfectly free lord of all, subject to none. A Christian is a perfectly dutiful servant of all, subject to all.” Luther engaged society. Luther attracted followers, who were not all like him – and we are thankful for that! For example, this is how Luther described parents who did not promote education of their children: “shameful, despicable, damnable parents who are no parents at all but despicable hogs and venomous beasts, devouring their own young.” When I read the 'strong' words some of my friends use to describe others, and the anger within me rises, I remember the words and the tone Luther used. And I calm down. Reformation Sunday reminds me that faith is imperfect, always being formed; and that it is dangerous to worship sanitized images. We have real ancestors who bickered like us. We should speak about them. Time for dinner at Uncle Boris's. I hope Luther comes.

This was a praying Assembly. At this first LWF Assembly with a prayer for its theme, the days were woven together by the Assembly hymn, inspired by this prayer. Each day, one word of this petition was highlighted in worship and Bible study. Through creative, multi-lingual liturgies of Holy Communion that expressed the faith we share, the diversity within our Communion could also be celebrated. In these times of worship we felt the deep inter-connectedness of our Communion in ways that are possible on such special occasions. The “daily bread” theme evoked discussions, particularly in village groups and public hearings, on food security, climate change, economic greed, illegitimate debt, human trafficking, HIV prevention, and gender justice. “Today you have heard and honored our story.” A high point of the Assembly was this response we heard from leaders of the Mennonite World Conference, as the Assembly asked forgiveness for violence done to Anabaptist Christians in Reformation times and its continuing legacies in Lutheran

The experience of the power of forgiveness and reconciliation at this Assembly promises hope for the future – with Anabaptists but also as an example for other places where relationships are strained or broken. We returned to this spirit of repentance and forgiveness repeatedly in relation to a variety of issues throughout this Assembly. Finally, we recognized the transitions which lie before us. Rev. Martin Junge, the General Secretary–elect, inspired the Assembly with his visions for the future of LWF.

Rev. Daniel Wong and his family left Kuala Lumpur back in June for Papua New Guniea (PNG) for a new journey. It is a whole new ministry and God has brought this family to serve mainly the Chinese Immigrants who are rapidly growing in PNG due to economic growth. The family settles in MADANG, a fairly small town which is situated at the bay of the ocean surrounded by lushes of greens. After several months, the family is now feeling at home at this new place. The two kids, Yixin and Qian Xin have enrolled into school and are learning to make friends with the locals. However, the political situation can be quite daunting especially for the Asians because of the instable economic and the high crime rate. God is good and on the first month, the family got to know some of local Chinese and it has been a blessing for the family to be able to speed up the adapting process. On 2nd of July, the first meeting by the Chinese group has started. The meeting group is helpful especially for

those who have been Christian but have not received any form of discipleship for a long time. The meeting becomes a consistent platform for them to have bible study and learn about Christianity. At the same time, Rev. Daniel is the English pastor for Memorial Lutheran Church in Madang which had been serving the community for more than 60 years. The church was founded by missionaries from Germany and now they have left the place. Due to the increase in number of Chinese, new ministry for the Chinese immigrant workers is in need. Besides that, in 2004, a mining joint project between China and Papua New Guinea was started. It is one of the biggest nickel and cobalt mines operated by Chinese companies. The project has brought in many job opportunities and improved infrastructures. However, the rapid development has caused some concerns including environment issues. With the influx of Chinese immigrants,

Church leaders from Germany and PNG have the vision to reach out to these mine workers. They lived in an enclosed compound any movements are “monitored” so how to go in and work with them is very challenging. Unlike in our country, you can make visitation or invite people to come to church. Early July, Rev Daniel and his family were invited by a hotel owner for dinner. At the dinner, Rev. Daniel was introduced to the senior administrative staff of RAMU NICO, which is the main operating company. It was a rare occasion for a pastor to get to meet officers and it has given Rev. Daniel the opportunity to build relationship with them. The company is open to suggestions to allow ministry to begin for the mine workers.

Rev. Daniel Wong and his family are supported by LCMS Mission and Lutheran Church in Bavaria. 汪牧师和家人的事工是由马新信义会以及在巴伐利亚 的信义会支持。

He was born on 18 February 1919 as Asirvatham Samuel Muthiah (Asirvatham, being the father’s name), at Pandur, workers, and so, in his early years, he refused to take up ‘the family trade’ and tried instead for all kinds of other work. Finally he went for Teachers’ Training, Soon a er, he got married and then both of them taught in a private school. In 1943, he answered a call from the Tamil Evangelical Lutheran Church in India, and went into 4 years of theological training. Upon graduaon, he was ordained in 1949, at the age of 30. In December, 1950, he came to Malaya and took up the posi on of pastor of Zion Lutheran Church in Brickfields. In 1973, he completed his Master’s in Religion. In 1976, he resigned from the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Malaysia and some months later, joined the LCMS in 1977. Throughout his long career, Rev. Muthiah has touched the lives of many people, and in many places. Good Shepherd LC, where he was for over 30 years, celebrated his 90th birthday just a couple of years ago. It was a grand celebra on, for the celebra on was also for the 60 years of ordained ministry that Rev. Muthiah was involved in. His span of ministry was such that he appears in both the ELCM and the LCMS history books! His recent passing was a great loss to the church as well as to family and friends. At a recent EXCO mee ng, several members of the EXCO remembered him fondly: Rev. Sivin Kit “He had that constant concern for ministry.â€? Rev. Thomas Low: “A very good teacher, solid content, learnt a lot from him, humility, pa ence, acceptance – the one constant in the LCMS – his quiet presence was very comfor ng, never conten ous.â€? Rev. Devadasan : “Very calm and gentle person, a person who has faced so many diďŹƒcules in life and yet remained calm.â€? Bishop Lok: “Very firm in his trust and faith in spite of his challenges, very commi ed, and a real inspira on and example to the younger pastors.â€? The EXCO paused for a minute in respect of Rev. A. S. Muthiah

The National Pastors & Lay Leaders Forum and Pastors’ Wives Seminar (NPLF) started with a warm greeting by the LCMS Bishop Philip Lok. “It was not an easy task to bring all the Pastors and Council Members from all the congregations under the same roof for two nights.” he said. “Unity in Ministry” was the theme for the NPLF. It was the very first time for LCMS to organize such a forum where Pastors and Lay Leaders come together with the Council Members and also to have a dialogue with the Bishop. At the same time, the Forum was also dedicated to the Pastors’ Wives which was guided by Dr. Lee Bee Teik and Sister Lisa Sum, who were the speakers of the forum. The purpose of this Forum is five-fold: to foster deeper understanding and meaningful relationships between LCMS pastors & lay-leaders for the furtherance of God’s Kingdom, to strengthen the cooperation between the congregations and the National Office, to create opportunities to develop new relationships for pastors and lay-leaders, to receive input from pastors and leaders concerning the future direction and plans for LCMS and lastly to provide support and encouragement to our pastors’ wives. The first night, Dr. Lee drew the attention of the participants to think deeper about the theme: What are the implications of His new commandment to His disciples to love one another as He has loved us? And the same time, we looked into what Unity is Not. On the next day, Dr. Phillip Baker led the

morning devotion. The very word ‘Unity is not uniformity’ lingered with us throughout the day. One of the purposes of the Forum is to understand the LCMS ministries. The Ministries consists of Mission, Social Concern, Youth, Education, Stewardship, Special Projects, and the Orang Asli. The representatives of each committee shared their concerns. Dr. Lee gave her second talk in the night. The topic is Forgiveness and Reconciliation. Thinking through what are the signs and symptoms of Unforgiveness. Indeed, it is relevant subject not to be taken lightly. The next day, we have Bishop Emeritus, Daniel to lead the morning devotion. Then it followed by a closed session between the Bishop and all the Council Members. Bishop spoke on the concerns and challenges faced by the LCMS. Overall, the Forum served the purposes and provided a safe space to share concerns.

Celebrate the love of God. two tents were up, water coolers are prepared, empty chairs were slowly filled up and the children were getting excited about the day regardless of the hot weather. On 26 September 2010, the Kaizen Children's Home celebrated its first anniversary. Bishop Lok pointed out at the opening speech, this very Sunday was the 18th Sunday after Pentecost, it was an appropriate time for us to reflect the question "why we are what we are doing". Kaizen Children's Home was first started by two warmhearted donors who sees the needs of children who are underprivileged. Eventually, this vision turns into an action plan. Kaizen Children's Home carries a simple purpose is to share the love of God through the children who is underprivileged. Through this act of sharing, the love of God is demonstrated. Currently, there are 6 children residing at this Home. “Our Homes are ready to serve more children." said Sister Agatha, the Chairperson of the Home. The children at Kaizen are encouraged to learn to cultivate a prayerful life, self-motivation and a sharing heart. The afternoon was a fun one as the kids were having good time watching magic show, singing songs and also the Kaizen's kids were sharing their essays with the crowd.

  既然一个魔鬼都比所有人加起来还要更有能力,而且没 有人能得救,那么在这么多逆境、危险以及魔鬼的攻击中, 我岂能巍然屹立,并且坚守自由意志?从另一方面来说,即 使没有危险、逆境与魔鬼,我也必然会在永远不确定的情况 下荣苦,并且像与空气斗拳一样。因为即使我活着,并且工 作到永恒,我的良心永远不能确信与肯定要做多少才能使上 帝满意。因为不管完成什么工作,总还存有一种焦虑的怀疑 ,就是不知道这样是否能讨上帝的喜悦,或祂所要求的更多 ,正如所有靠行为称义之人的经验所证明的,也正如多年来 我吃足苦头所学到的一样。但是,现在上帝既然把我的救恩

从我的手中拿出来,放进祂的手里,使我的救恩是因祂的拣 选,而非我的选择而定,并且上帝已经应许要拯救我,不是 靠着我自己的行为或努力,而是靠着祂的恩典与怜悯,所以 ,我确信也肯定祂是信实的,不会对我撒谎,这对于魔鬼或 任何逆境而言,祂实在是太伟大、也太有能力了。我们肯定 并确信,我们讨上帝喜悦,不是靠着自己行为的功劳,而是 祂应许要施慈爱给我们的恩惠,同时我们也肯定与确信,如 果我们所做的不如我们所应做的,或者做得不好,祂也不会 抓住这点来拒绝我们,祂却是以一种父爱的方式,赦免与纠 Bishop Lok, Dr. Lee and pastors 正我们。 --马丁路德《论意志的捆绑》,1525

I grew up in the church and since young I have been serving God. Thank God that during the school holidays, He allowed me to join Youth For Christ after I submitted myself to serve Him when I was in Form Three. At that time, my mentality in serving Him was different. When I finished school, I was hoping that I could serve Him full time, so I joined a gospel mission. I enjoyed very much working in that mission. Though there were moments of unhappiness, with God, everything was overcome. Thanks to God, when I served in the mission, I had the opportunity to study mass media for two years. From the studies, I had a clearer picture that I studied to serve God. Two years later, I went back to the mission to work. Somehow, my character changed for the worse: I called it my rebellious years when I was down spiritually. Things were not going my way both in serving in the church and working in the mission. After some time of adjustment, I calmed down eventually and the idea of studying Theology dawned on me. Initially, many tried to dissuade me because some of them thought that I was not mature enough. I therefore put things on hold and waited upon the Lord. During the waiting period, I left the mission and worked in the secular world. God showed me the difference between doing secular work and serving Him. I prayed to God and offered to serve God full time. At the end of 2006, I submitted by faith my application to the Theological College and by God’s grace I was admitted to the college.

੅ᄹ̠ၶMovie Reflection

and the dream of god by Alwyn Lau (Luther House Chapel)

“(Do not look) only on the surface of things...” (2 Corinthians 10:7)

how would you know if you’re dreaming (or not) at this very moment? During those times when you were dreaming, did you know that you were asleep? If you couldn’t tell you were asleep then, how can you be sure now? Inception, directed by Christopher Nolan (who also helmed the mega block-buster Dark Knight) and starring Leonardo DiCaprio, is about a team of dream-infiltrators tasked to ‘enter’ the dreams of an heir to a huge business empire to sway him to make a critical business decision. The project involves inception i.e. penetrating a target person’s dreams in the hope of planting an idea into this person so when he wakes up he would act upon it as if it were his own. This project, in order to be successful, must occur inside many dreams within dreams i.e. the dream invaders need to enter one of their target’s dreams and within that dream cause him to dream another dream in which he would have to dream yet again (that’s three dreams, if you’ve been counting). As if this isn’t enough of (literally) a mind-trip, the movie introduces even further complications resulting from the dream-defences set up by the target person’s sub-conscious mind; the dream architects will be attacked by the sub-conscious creations of the target’s mind whilst inside his dreams. How (if at all) the team managed to complete their mission whilst navigating all these problems is what keeps the suspense going. From a Christian perspective, the movie’s key concept of ‘doing battle within dreams’ could be seen as symbolizing the struggle of the Christian between his flesh, enslaved by sin, and his newly created being, enlivened and enflamed by the Spirit of God in Christ. As Inception’s characters are continually on their guard against the threats and attacks which occur inside their dreams, likewise the Apostle Paul admonishes us to ‘take captive every thought’ in the work of demolishing strongholds (2Cor 10:3-5). As the movie’s dream architects are fully aware that radical change can be effected via manoeuvres below the level of consciousness, the Roman Christians were similarly called to ‘be transformed by the renewing of their minds’ (Rom 12:2). Doesn’t the act of a malicious inception i.e. invading someone’s mind with harmful ideas, in fact sound like what the Devil has done by “blinding the minds” of the unbelieving world (2Cor 4:4)? The movie is merely making spectacular what happens many times everyday. It highlights the fact that what we are today is very much a product of the messages, the hints, the suggestions, the symbols, the stories, all the information that has been bombarded

(and whispered) into us over the years. Media, the Internet, our peers, novels, movies, billboards, our relatives and family – what have they been ‘saying’ to and/or ‘implanting’ in us? Also importantly, what message have we been ‘inserting’ to their minds, through our words and our actions - our very lives? The human mind is the site where God’s Word and the Devil’s lies fight for the right to total inception. The world’s cravings and deceptions (of power, greed, lust, selfishness and so on) will always seek to embed themselves deep inside our hearts – only someone who has set up adequate spiritual defenses can wage an effective fightback. Conversely, God’s life- changing Spirit is working non-stop to mold us to think, imagine, act and love like Jesus – but it’s never easy because it’s a thought by thought battle fought inside each and every one of us. This is surely why people like the psalmist had to pray that God regularly conducts a mind-scan on him, testing and trying him so all the viruses of sin and wickedness are destroyed and only designs of everlasting life remain (Psalms 139:23). We are blessed by God, and the world is blessed through us, when we open ourselves to be ‘incept-ed’ by His Word despite and throughout all the frustrations, temptations and pain we undergo. We are blessed when we can ‘see beyond the surface of things’ (2Cor 10:7) and our marching orders are to go forth and do inception-battle for the glory of God, getting the message and love of Christ through and in to people’s hearts over against the force of evil in the heavenly realms (Eph 6:12). Sure, dream inception as per the movie may be techno-fiction. Spiritual inception, however, is a moment-by-moment reality. In this already-butnot-yet kingdom of God, between Resurrection Sunday and the day Christ returns, in some sense, we’re ALWAYS ‘dreaming’ until God raises (wakes?) us up fully renewed and glorified in His likeness. For now, the Spirit-led kingdom, the heavenly domain - the Christ-filled dream - of God beckons.
