Some points to remind church office bearers
- Shlomo in Christ,
During my visit to our own holy churches I noticed one bad practice ,that is spenting money for unnecessary things like remodification over the currently modified churches .At the same time lot of Jacobite faithful are praying for their own building or land for the worship. In other part ,our own faithful are begging for the money for their or their relatives's treatment. Lot of spiritual organisations in our own church are obstacled by financial constraints in the meanwhile churches who have the biblical obligation to help the poor and needy people ,are spenting money for decoration of churches rather than maintanance of churches .That money will go to the contractor who has undertaken the work. So the church will be deviated from its prime duties. I know some of our spiritual organisations like St Paul's Mission ,Honavar Mission,MJSSA are suffering from lack of money that will hinder their function.
St Paul's Mission is one of the spiritual organisations under the leadership of HG Geevargeese Mor Koorilose Metropolitan , is delivering biblical messages to the Christian and Non Christian people ,establishing churches and schools to the believers who are out side Kerala. They are in an aim to extend their function to all states of India .Lot of misiionaries staying in the field are in a pathetic condition. Even though they are not worried about the lack of facilities or house ,more over they are engaged in the charity works in the field .So inorder to reduce the financial burden over spiritual organisation each of the large churches like Marthomman Church Kothamangalam ,Mulanthruthy chuch,Manrcad Church,Kuruppampady church etc should sponsor the missionary work in a state or they can sponsor the church buildings in the field rather than spenting money for modifications . So they can participate in the gospel work of our church. So I believe that the administrative people of our church will rethink and take a positive decision
