      On Managing Difference of Opinion
      A few years ago I heard a story from a friend. A Christian husband and wife, who were living happily and peacefully, divorced. It all started from a difference of opinion. Well, what was that opinion they had a difference about? Get ready for a hearty laugh! The husband argued that he loved her more than she loved him. The wife argued that she loved him more than he loved her. This argument about their love for each other finally ended up in divorce. Hard to believe that such an incident did occur! It sounds like a story formed in somebody's imagination. But my friend who told me this story swears that he knew that family, and it really happened exactly so.
       
      How can people live and work together with their differences of opinion? Can we allow our differences of opinion affect our relationships? This study explores this question further with a few real-life situations.
      Metaphors in the Bible
      When I was in Ethiopia, I used to eat injera. If you have never been to Ethiopia, you would want to know what injera is. It is a big pancake (dosa) made of a grain called theff. Now you know what injera is because I related it to pancake, something familiar to you. This is the basic function of metaphor.....   This study explores the use of metaphors in the Bible

      Facts and Opinions in the Bible
      A belief or opinion could be true or false. We just don’t know. We just don’t have enough evidence to prove either way. However, all the time we hear people claiming their belief to be the only true belief!

      സുറിയാനി ക്രിസ്ത്യാനികള്‍ ദിവസവും ഉറങ്ങുന്നതിന് മുമ്പായി ആലപിക്കുന്ന ഒരു ധ്യാനകീര്‍ത്തനമാണ്  ഞാനിവിടെ ലളിതമായ മലയാളത്തിലേക്കു മൊഴിമാറ്റം നടത്തിയിരിക്കുന്നത്. മനസിലാക്കാന്‍ പ്രയാസമുള്ള പല വാക്കുകളും പ്രയോഗങ്ങളും ഇതില്‍ ഒഴിവാക്കിയിരിക്കുന്നു.
       1. കര്‍ത്താവേ കൃപ ചെയ്യണമേ
      അടിയാരുടെ പ്രാര്‍ഥന കേട്ട്
      നിന്നുടെ ഭണ്ഡാഗാരത്തില്‍
      നിന്നും നന്മകള്‍ ചൊരിയണമേ

      2. നിദ്ര വെടിഞ്ഞങ്ങുണര്‍വോടെ
      നിന്‍ സവിധേയെത്തീടാനും
      തിന്മയശേഷം തീണ്ടാതെ
      വീണ്ടുമുറങ്ങാനും കൃപ ചെയ്
