Hi Sze Zeng,

This photo of Auntie Annie Ooi deserves a Pulitzer Prize for photography. It is poignant and heart breaking. A photo paints a thousand words. Besides "What will Jesus do?", I am thinking of how our theology can contibute towards to the Christian discussions on justice and democracy. I need to read up more on the theology and life of Lutheran theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer who paid the ultimate price for his stand as a disciple of Christ under the Third Reich.

Hi Martin,

I was very encouraged by Annie Ooi.

BTW, if you are looking into Christianity and justice, you may like to know that there is a good book specifically on this issue in the local context, edited by Daniel Koh and Kiem-Kiok. The title is 'Issues of Law and Justice in Singapore: Some Christian Reflections'.

Thanks for recommendation. Sounds interesting. By the way there is a serious of talks on justice by Hugh Williamson in TTC. Is it worth attending? Any clue? Have you read any of his writings on justice?

I haven't hear Williamson before. My friend who has is impressed by him. By the way, Williamson is Gordon Wong's "sifu". :-)
