Happenings...

In view of recent public discussion over the issue of euthanasia, the National Council of Churches of Singapore has released a statement on the matter. Of course, NCCS "opposes all forms of euthanasia".

Next week is exciting. First, my final exam is on Tuesday(!), then there is the Organ Sales talk on Wednesday by 3 experts, then there is Sherman's lecture on Thursday morning, and there is this Tas Walker lectures around Singapore. Then we have the budding NT scholar coming to town in the same week. Definitely will get him patronize Starbucks in his leisure time. On the other hand, I still have to continue my review on Joseph Prince's book. Oh ya, before I forget, there will be a GCF dinner meeting with Michael Schluter on Monday. Actually I'm still thinking whether should I attend the dinner or should I stay at home and mugged through the night for Tuesday's exam.

On Rowan Williams. Very recently he has made a smart move to visit a Hindu temple as a friendly gesture amidst the violence afflicted on Christians in India. But on the other hand, Williams' congregation, the Church of England, is facing problem with their investment due to the financial crisis.

On business and marketplace. Ng Kam Weng shared about the experiences of his friends who went through some mind-twisting exercises known as the Large Group Awareness Training organized by their company. Kam Weng gave a critique on such training and question its legitimacy, especially when companies obligate their staffs to go through such training.

You are really happening! Come by and look for me once you are done with your Greek exam. I should be hiding somewhere in the library!

All the best for your Greek exam. It should not be too difficult.
