Our latest publication, Sermons on the Psalms, has finally arrived from the publisher. Members of the Centre for Bible Engagement, Rev Dr Lim Kar Yong, Dr Peter Lau, and Dr Elaine Goh, jointed edited this volume as our special publication celebrating the 40th anniversary of the seminary. Seminari Theoloji Malaysia was founded on the Feast of Epiphany, Jan 6, 1979.
The idea for this book was birthed when the faculty members contemplated a special publication celebrating the 40th anniversary. It was quickly decided that we should put together our sermons on Psalms preached at the Thursday community chapel based on Lectionary Reading during the First Semester of 2018.
Psalms are often neglected in the teaching and preaching of the Malaysian Church. Yet Psalms offer rich reflections on our journey of faith. Drawing from personal experience, the psalmists express a whole range of emotions - from joy to lament, from praise to weeping, and from exultation to sorrow. Because of this, Psalms help us to pray and to relate to God more honestly and intimately. They also express clearly who God is, what he is like, and what he has done.
May you be encouraged in your journey of faith and moved to praise our great God as you read and reflect on the Psalms, just as we did on first hearing them and putting them into publication.
This book will be made available for those will be joining us in our 40th Anniversary Service and Dinner celebration on January 6, 2019. It will be available for sale after that. If you would like to contribute to the ministry of STM and our building extension project, please contact us.
