The latest Issue of Malankara World Journal (Volume 1, Issue 10, Dated
June 17, 2011) is now available online at:
With this issue, we have made some changes to the Journal. We have made it easy to read the Journal in smaller screens as in PDA.
We added two new features - An "Inspiration for the Week" segment will
recharge you with inspirational prayers, scriptures and notable quotes.
The "featured this week" will highlight key message of the week. This
week, it is aptly, "Servant Leadership." The subject comes from the
Lectionary for Golden Friday, the first Friday after Pentecost. Three
articles are featured that examine, in depth, the concept of leadership as envisaged by Jesus Christ.
The gospel for Sunday is one of Jesus' "I am" statements from St. John -
"I am the bread of life." Read the bible studies and the articles and
sermons to understand Jesus' message on how we can partake in the
Kingdom of God.
Last week, we talked about being the light that shines on the world. We
need to preserve the moral values of God but we need to expand the
kingdom of God and Christ to all people, and being the light of Christ
is part of that expansion.
This week, we expanded this concept with Servant Leadership. And it is
further amplified in the article, "Letting God’s Light Shine Through You."
This Sunday is the Father's Day. We have a special article explaining
the role of Fathers in Christianity. A survey found that the spiritual
practice of father has a major role in shaping the belief of children -
much more than that of the mother! We intuitively guess that the mother
has the predominant role in shaping the belief system of the children;
but it is not so. Take a look at the article, "Fathers: Key to Their
Praying about health issues dramatically increased among American adults over the past three decades, rising 36 percent between 1999 and 2007, according to a study published in 2011 by the American Psychological Association. Whatever causes people to pray more is a good thing!
We also have articles on health, stress management and recipe to round
out this issue of the Malankara World Journal.
We hope that you will tell your friends and acquaintances about MW
Journal and Malankara World website. Thank you for your support and help.
