Greetings to you all in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It is a time of praise and thanksgiving to the mighty name of our Lord. Even in the midst of all adversities our God helps us to walk in accordance with the divine statutes.
On the first Sunday of June the Church contemplates up on the Day of Pentecost where the power of the Holy Spirit is poured up on the Church. On Trinity Sunday, that is the second Sunday, we proclaim our faith in the Trinitarian God, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. We observe the Sunday as the Environmental Sunday too and affirm the organic relationship with God, ourselves, and the nature. On third Sunday the Church ponders upon the ways of discipleship which is the call to walk in Christ. On fourth Sunday we give much attention to the Christian Service and the models.
The summer vacation has just started for our children. Hope that our children make use of the time to rejuvenate themselves to seek diverse ways of learning. Our VBS 2022 will be held from June 22 to June 25. I encourage the parents to send their children to VBS for spiritual nurturing.
May the peace of God that surpasses all human understanding guard our hearts and minds in Christ Jesus, Amen.
