This week's meditation is very special. It is titled, "Today I will make a difference." Our mission in this world is to make a difference using the talents given by God. I suggest that you read this passage everyday in the morning. You will see a big difference in your life shortly.
Our focus topic is on the Dominican Outreach Mission organized by Rev.
Fr. Johnson and the St. Ephrem's mission, a jewel of the Universal
Syriac Orthodox Church. Several members from North America, including a member of the Malankara World Board, will be experiencing Dominican
Republic first hand this week. They will see sufferings from poverty,
illnesses such as HIV/AIDS, earthquake devastation etc. We will be
updating on the trip frequently in MW.
Humility is a quality that is highly preferred by God. We have a short
article about Humility. Read it over and over. It is a life changer.
Talking of eternity, Dr. Graham tells us how to make big impact on our
eternal life during our short life. We think we have a long life to
live. The fact is, no one knows how much time we have here. It can end

This week's Journal also has articles on career change, very useful in
the uncertain economic conditions of today. The health feature talks
about the dangers of commercial sun screen products. Next two months are the peak summer season in North America; we hope that you will read and pay attention to what is given there before going to beach. You will be glad you did.
For our North American readers, we wish you all a Happy July Fourth
Holiday. Enjoy the picnics, fireworks, and backyard barbecues. We are
already past the half way point in this summer season.
