Video: Christian Perspectives Of Homosexuality And Pastorial Care.

As some of us know, there was a dialogue called Christian Perspectives Of Homosexuality And Pastorial Care organized by Safehaven, Singapore, on May 10th 2007. The objectives, as published, are are as follows:

"The objective of the dialogue would be to offer the larger Christian community, the opportunity to hear and be exposed to alternate views on homosexuality, to be informed and engaged, to overcome the fear of “the other”. Fundamentally, Safehaven wants to start the process of conversation, to encourage dialogue rather than division, to show that whatever differences of interpretation or opinion (where there is no simple “right or wrong” answer) we as Christians can honestly face differences while maintaining pastoral care and unity as Christians sharing a common tradition."

The panel consists of:

1. Rev. Dr. Tan Kim Huat(Chen Su Lan Professor of New Testament andDean of Studies at Trinity Theological College)

2. Anthony Yeo(Clinical Director of Counselling and Care Centre)

3. Edmund Smith(Founder of ex-gay movement Real Life Ministry)

4. Rev. Dr. Yap Kim Hao, PhD(Boston University, Mass, USA)(First Asian Bishop of The Methodist Church in Malaysia and Singapore, Pastoral Advisor- Free Community Church)

The Moderator:Augustine Anthuvan(Assistant Programme Manager, MediaCorp Radio)
