I am enjoying my time in Malaysia. It was an honor to Keynote at the Ecclesia of Women in Asia Conference. I spoke on the “Intersectionality of Migration in Asia”.
It is wonderful to see so many amazing Catholic women theologians who are changing the world and the landscape of the church.
I have met many amazing Malaysians and see the wonderful growth of Christianity. I look forward to speaking with the Progressive Malaysian Christians on Wed. January 21 from 6-9p.m. Please do come.
