Being Christian in a Multi-Religious Society
Date: 1 April (Sat)
Venue: Room 406
The Young Adults’ Ministry has invited Rev Terry Kee to share on how we can be Christian and continue to witness as Christians in a uniquely multi-religious context. Can we view other religions only through a lens of conflict? Or is there a better social imaginary to be had? Rev Kee was the former bishop of the Lutheran Church in Singapore (LCS). Through the years he had also served as President of the National Council of Churches in Singapore (NCCS), chairman of the Board of governors of Trinity Theological College (TTC) and also President of the Inter-Religious Organisation (IRO). He has engaged in much interfaith work and many interfaith dialogues before, and would have a wealth of experience to share with us. You may register for the talk at https://forms.office.com/r/LWqj34XTiv
