There were about 65 people attended this briefing, including 3 non-Catholic and 15 facilitator from Archdiocese of Kuala Lumpur.
First part of the orientation was sharing on the topics of “Christianity; is it Boring, Untrue, and Irrelevant?” Is our world changing, in trouble or in danger? Why am I born? And what is my purpose of life? These are the questions we might be thinking, but not having the answer. Bible verses quoted in John Chapter 14 verse 6: Jesus said “I am the way; the truth and the life” were introduced to this topic.
It was an inspiration and interesting talk with some touchingnews and personal sharing of faith.
