It was great! The British-led counselling seminar for full-time Christian workers was well attended on both days. Nightly sessions for the public were even better attended. Further more, at least three different groups of believers in the Klang Valley are considering setting up counselling training centres to meet our local needs. But what is worrying is that while so many sisters and brothers are busy attending course, where will they have the time, patience and energy to actually counsel someone in deep pain? Compassion, as I understand, needs to be nurtured at the feet of the Master Counsellor, renewal of the mind comes by listening to His words hidden in the silence of our hearts; transformation, then, follows by the work of the Holy Spirit. How, O how do we minister while hopping from course to course on renewal and counselling?
