Dear [FIRSTNAME],

This is the last edition of the newsletter for this year. How fast time flies!

My piece explains the current legal position of what happens in Malaysia when one party to a marriage converts to Islam and, without the consent or knowledge of the other party, converts their children as well. Do share the story. Of course, I’d love to know what you think.

Parent or Parents?

In Malaysia, both parents must consent to the conversion of their child to Islam. For now.

Many years ago, in a provincial court, I began to panic. The judge had refused my request for an adjournment.

Volume 14, Issue 9 – 30 September 2018
Dear [FIRSTNAME],

I delayed sending out the newsletter because I wanted to share a very special story with you. Earlier this month, I was invited to write a story for a booklet being prepared for the centenary celebrations of a church in my hometown. In it, I write about Sister Alphonse Coombs, who also makes an appearance in my collection of stories, Two Snakes Whistling at the Same Time. With the editor’s permission, I am now able to share it with you.
