Thanks be to God!
Dear All in Christ:
This is the second edition of the Newsletter that has been issued in
connection with Jubilee convention of the Malankara Archdiocese of
Syrian Orthodox Church in North America (MASOC_NA). We have received
several constructive feedbacks on the previous edition and we tried to
incorporate as many of them in this edition.
While we celebrate the jubilee convention with pomp and gaiety, we
should not forget the underlying theme of the convention, "Thanks be to God", a key message from 1 Corinthians 15:56-58, which reminds us to be stead fast in our faith knowing that our labor is not in vain in the Lord. Jesus did what He did because God is love, and needed no reward to do good. But there were other times when Jesus healed, and, like humans will do, those healed quickly went away to live their lives without God. Jesus healed ten lepers but only one returned
to thank Him for His wondrous gift. Let's be thankful to our Lord for all the wonders He bestowed on us throughout of life's journey.
The current Newsletter has messages from H.B. Catholica Bava, Archdiocesan leadership, Jubilee convention leadership, Youth leadership and updates from multiple Jubilee convention kick offs across North America. Parish leadership and webmasters are encouraged to publish the Newsletter and convention website in their respective parish websites. Our intent is to reach these messages across all members and families of our faithful and encourage them to participate in this historic event.
We actively seek your inputs, advise, and feedback to make the efforts
more successful in the coming days.
