Promoting Spiritual Friendship in Church and Society through:

Training

Equipping people to live out relationally healthy lives in the church and in the world.

Mentoring

Training mentors and running mentoring groups to help followers of Jesus grow in Christlikeness.

Publishing

Bringing to life books that promote spiritual friendship and connect the Word of God with the issues of daily life.

Why Spiritual Friendship?

Spiritual friendship is friendship that is rooted in Christ for the purpose of helping followers of Jesus grow in Christlikeness. Our model for spiritual friendship takes its cue from Jesus, who called together a community (Matthew 4:18–22) at the start of His public ministry.

The Christian life can be described as following Jesus in the company of friends. But how many of us have these vital and life-giving relationships in place.

Why Publishing?

It is all too easy to live a life that divides the sacred from the secular. But we believe that all of life is lived under God; that there is no such divide.

So we publish books to help followers of Jesus Christ embrace spiritual friendship, and live out their faith in the world. Our books help them connect the Word of God with the issues of daily life — truth for life — issues like busyness, young adulthood, marriage, parenting, growing old, work as worship to God, politics, corruption, to name a few.

Last Camp of the Year

My second last retreat/camp for the year was with a group of Malaysian Methodists held in Cameron Highlands. It was a significant time and I heaved a sigh of relief thinking it was my last camp/retreat of the year. Then Bernice reminded me there was one more—the...

Friends

It was 1995. I was at a major crossroads. I believed the Lord had called me to the pastorate and I had served as a pastor for 10 years. But now I believed the Lord may be calling me to serve in a parachurch organisation. If I were to go in that direction would it be a...

Mutuality and an Appeal for Support

. . . the one who receives instruction in the word should share all good things with their instructor. (Galatians 6:6 NIV) I have been deeply touched at the many who have written in to say how much they have been blessed by the weekly eCommentaries. I heard from folks...

That’s How The Light Gets In

At the last CMDF (Christian Medical and Dental Fellowship) dinner, something interesting happened. A guest, who was not a follower of Jesus, decided to be one. What is more interesting is why? The theme of the evening was “Good News for Bruised Reeds”, and the invited...

With Great Power…

One shouldn't be surprised when one hears that a 95-year-old man has passed away, but there are certain bigger-than-life persons whose death will always surprise you. I was surprised to hear about the death of Stan Lee, one of the founders of Marvel comics and its...

Is It Time to Call It a Day?

I am writing this at 10.53pm on a Thursday evening. I am tired and sleepy but I need to get this done because we send out this weekly ecommentary every Friday. I seriously doubt that I can write this tomorrow because tomorrow will be a full day. As was today. Many...
