Re: Comments of the Evaluators on Sunday School Esays
I could go through the essays and readers' comments. Many of the
essays were really thought provoking. Since 1972 I had no opportunity
to be associated with sunday school activity in our church because
the 1972 split disapponted me and therefore, I remained isolated from
church activities except daily prayer for eternal peace. I could
visualise the Director's motivation in whole set up and it is indeed
While giving a topic next time for such deliberations I would suggest
to put it 'Why should I go to orthodox sunday school'. Due to the
expanding gospelisation in the world 'the word of God' is being
interpreted logically according to human intellegence. The worship of
the 'word of God' with the 'spirit of God' and recieving Him into our
body is diminishing. Several people decide to learn the 'word of God'
with their wisdom. Let us hear from our young children their views.
While thinking to bring in curriculam change in sunday school I would
suggest to train our children 'orthodox meditation' the way Parumala
gregorios thirumeni enhanced his spiritual power. We need
several 'parumala punnyavalans' for our church.

- I had posted this question a few weeks ago but never received a
response. I am not surprised however, since lately, the message
board seems to be flooded these days with mails over
church party politics. Can someone, e.g. one of our esteemed clergy
please inform us about the Malankara Sabha's position on the
cannonization of Vattasseril Geevarghese Mar Dionysius VI, Malankara
Sabha Bhasuran as a saint? Has the Holy Synod agreed to his
cannonization? I read recently that the Sabha will make an
announcement this month but have not found anyone to confirm this.
Since Thirumeni's Dhukarono is on February 25th, I would think that
any ceremony would take place at that time.
Lately, I have been reading a lot about the late Thirumeni's
contributions to our church and am excited about the possibility of
his potential cannonization. If anyone has any information on this,
for the benefit of this group, please let us know.
