10th May 2013

 

To the component bodies of the CFM and the churches of Malaysia

Dear Heads of Churches,

 

Re: Call for National Day of Prayer and Reflection Against Racism on 13 May 2013

The Christian Federation of Malaysia is calling for a National Day of Prayer and Reflection against Racism on 13 May 2013.

We urge all churches to call their congregations to individual and corporate prayer and reflection against racism and to actions of peace and reconciliation in our beloved Malaysia.

It is time that we bury the spectre of May 13 that is raised repeatedly to haunt us as a nation.

Contrary to current rhetoric, the different ethnic groups have never been more united than after this 13th General Election.

It is an opportune time for us to create new memories this 13 May 2013, to celebrate our diversity and unwavering commitment to live peacefully with our neighbours.

May this be the beginning of a new tradition of 13 May.

 

Together in God's service,
Rev. Dr. Eu Hong Seng
Chairman and the Executive Committee
The Christian Federation of Malaysia
