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.

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...

Vanity and Laziness

If the measure of a man's greatness is not the amount of money in his account when he dies, but the number of lives he has touched, Eugene Peterson, who died on Oct 22 at 85, was a great man. The moment it was known that he had passed on, social media exploded with...

The Next Chapter

This past Tuesday Bernice and I went up to Penang for an early celebration of my mum's 91st birthday. My sis and family came up from KL for the celebration too. When we reached Penang we were alarmed to discover that my mum had had a bad fall about a week earlier. Her...

You Started a Bookstore???

Whenever I am back in Petaling Jaya I try to drop by Lit Books, an independent bookstore owned and run by a husband and wife team, Min Hun and Elaine. (I must thank son Andrew for giving me a heads up about the store.) Husband and wife came from sterling careers in...

Don’t Look Away

It's already moving off the front pages of print and online media, not spared of the relentless push for new news to catch the attention of audiences addicted to novelty. But this happened last Friday: A powerful, 7.5-magnitude earthquake hit the Indonesian island of...
