When I was a student at Luther Seminary, a Malaysian pastor by the name of Solomon Rajah was there doing his masters degree. Solomon was a good bloke, and I remember him well, although we did not keep in touch after he returned to Malaysia.
Well, now it appears he has risen to new heights, being consecrated as Bishop of the Malaysian Lutheran Church (the previous bishop, Julius Paul , died last year in a boating accident).
This report says that
he was consecrated by
Lutheran Archbishop of Uppsala, Sweden, The Most Rev Karl Gustav Hammer
in the presence of Rt Rev Dr H.A. Martin, the Bishop of the Tamil Evangelical Lutheran Church in Tamil Nadu
and Bishop of the Anglican Diocese of West Malaysia Rt Rev Ng Moon Heng.
