Alex Tang gives a review on Joseph Prince's book, Health and Wholeness through the Holy Communion (Singapore: Media, 2006). One of the points highlighted is that “The Holy Communion is God’s solution to offset the decay (ageing). And even your friends will see the results. They will ask you, “Hey, why do you seem to look younger and younger? You never seem to age!”” (p.58).
Hmmm....any truth? Well....since coming to STM, I have been having Holy Communion more frequently now - twice a week in the seminary chapel. Could this be the result that when I went to see the doctor last week, he was shocked to find out that I am a lecturer and not a first year student? (BTW - it happened again earlier today when I took my mother to see her doctor. The doctor asked, "Are you a student?")
What is happening to the church in Singapore and Malaysia? If you want to stay young, you now have a choice: take frequent Holy Communion, or let your pastor touch your body parts and pray for you! Pick your choice....
Wonder what's next?
