Thanks and praise to Almighty God for His intervention and protection that we, Malaysians, can live together in peace though we are made up of different races, religions and cultures. We are grateful to God because, though there were times of disagreements between us, we are able to see our diversity in a positive way and as a strength for our Malaysian nation.

We are appreciative of the campaign launched by Prime Minister of Malaysia, YAB Dato Sri Ismail Sabri Yakob, to unite Malaysians of all races, religions and cultures with the slogan, Keluarga Malaysia Teguh Bersama.

To be able to realise this noble ideal, all of us Malaysians need to participate and care, starting from our own family, because the family is the foundation of society. Good or bad practices and culture begin in our family.

Building a Malaysian family requires an open understanding, driven by the spirit of community, participation and struggle. Parents, regardless of race, religion or culture, need to help and teach children to be open and to respect their fellow human beings as God’s creation, regardless of their race, religion or culture. The noble slogan can only be realised if it starts in the family.

As Christians, we are citizens of the Kingdom of God and the Government of Malaysia. We live like salt and light, bringing a great influence to those around us wherever we are (Mat. 5:13-16). May we work together to realise this noble ideal — Keluarga Malaysia Teguh Bersama.

Blessed 59th Hari Malaysia.
Happiness is belonging + Bishop Datuk Cornelius Piong
