Thought for the day
"Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened."
- Matthew 7:7-8
Chennai: Synod Mission Department has engaged with Gospel Sunday Celebration on 25th November 2018 at C.S.I. Christ Cathedral Melukavu in East Kerala Diocese. Cathedral Prayer Fellowship has organized the program with a strong vision that ‘all congregation must be a missional congregation towards the radical transformation of the society’.
“Our Mission is Mission of God. We are the copartners in God’s Mission. It is people oriented without any differences. All are the part and parcel of the Mission. It is aimed at the radical transformation of the living community and the entire creation at large”, said Rev. Maxcin John, Synod Mission Director during the preaching on the Gospel Sunday. He further added that being a part of God’s Mission is not just a privilege, rather, it is all about responsibility, accountability and transparency in relation to others in doing the mission. Our own life is the best medium to propagate the gospel of Christ. It is the need of the hour to spread the gospel of love, mercy, forgiveness, kind, peace, just and reconciliation to all others, he added.
“We have to remember the ways in which we had passed and crossed, and we must be enthusiastic and energetic by the legacy of Mission laid by our forefathers and former Missionaries”, said Rev. Prasad John, Madhya Kerala Diocese, during his preaching in Gospel Sunday Convention. The mission must be the passion for all members and it should be inclusive and sustainable, he added.

Vicar in Cathedral, Melukavu), Mr. V. G. George (Asst. Patron), Mr. P. I. Thomas (Secretary), Mr. K. S. George (Treasurer), Mr. P. A. George (Convener), Mr. P. J.
