FROM OUR VICAR
Dear friends in Christ,
Warm Greetings in the precious Name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ!!!
The Church of South India is celebrating its platinum Jubilee this year. She is about to celebrate her 75th Birthday on 27th September 2021. As members of a great united and uniting church, let’s be proud of its legacies and contributions to the society. In Christian perspective, each celebration is a time of retrospection and evaluation. As we celebrate the 75th anniversary, it is time to critically evaluate how far we were able to achieve the goals and objectives envisaged by the founding fathers of the church union movement in South India. Very often we claim that ours is a church, which is UNITED and UNITING. By united we mean our church is the union of three churches with unique different traditions. By ‘uniting’ we mean our church is a missionary church, growing day by day in its mission, widening its influence and bringing others into its flock. This is the mission and vocation of the church. The church has to grow into the maturity, the perfection of Christ, who is the head of the church. St.Paul the chief architect of first century Christian church has urged his followers to be part of the mission of building up the Church, thereby establishing the kingdom of God in this world with LOVE and TRUTH. St.Paul says, “But speaking the truth in love, we must grow up in in every way into Him who is the head, into Christ., from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by every joint with which it is equipped, as each part is working properly, promotes the body’s growth in building itself up in love” (Ephe:4:15,16)
