‘Reconciliation week’ took on a new meaning for nine members of the LCANZ when they attended a biblical reconciliation intensive recently. Run by the Reconciliation Ministry department, it was part of the Training to Teach Biblical Reconciliation course.
The Right Reverend Lu Guan Hoe is the new bishop of LCANZ overseas partner church Lutheran Church in Singapore (LCS). Bishop Lu, who succeeds Bishop Terry Kee Buck Hwa, was installed as the third bishop of the LCS on 26 June.
The LCANZ is seeking to gain knowledge on ways in which religious beliefs and practices are used by some men to perpetrate domestic violence. The research has been commissioned by the church’s Campaign for the Prevention of Domestic and Family Violence task force.
