Living in the Plural Context of Today
I was born in a Batak family 31 years ago in Urung Panei, Simalungun regency in North Sumatra. My father is from the Batak Toba clan and my mother from the Batak Simalungun clan. Both of them are Christians, Lutherans, although people in my village do not really know what Lutheran is. The majority of them know that they are Christians. They are Protestants and not Catholic. Since my parents are Christians, I was immediately baptised in my village church, “Gereja Kristen Protestan Simalungun”, when I was less than one year old.
