Congratulations and Greetings on SOCM-FORUM 4th Birthday
- While glorifying the mighty and ever-loving name of our Lord and Saviour
Jesus Christ for HIS abundant blessings showered on the SOCM Moderators
during the last four years to successfuly carry on the noble cause of
enlightening the Universal Syriac Orthodox Church members all over the
world, the Jacobite Syrian Christians of Delhi, join me to wholehartedly
congratulate the Moderators for the distinguished services rendered by all
of you for upholding the true faith of our forefathers.
Jesus Christ told, "You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its
flavour, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing, but to be
thrown out and trampled underfoot by men." Again HE said, "You are the
light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do
they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it
gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before
men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven"
(Matthew 5:13-16). Dear Moderators, the above Words of Life are truly
justifiable in your deeds. The light which you got from the Holy Church
have been passed on to others so that let them all be lighted and become
citizens of heaven. You have utilized the talents which the Creator has
given to all of you. You have been able to multiply it in thirty, sixty and
SOCM-FORUM is doing a marvellous and wonderful job in this electronic age.
Our God in the Highest is so great that the Holy Church has given birth to
such children, who could spread light to the world and their talents are
utilized for spreading HIS Gospel, and also give courage to them to fight
against the adversaries of the Church.
The Moderators are doing a commendable work in compiling the truth and
correct versions of the matters related to the Holy Church and putting it on
the electronic media. It is a tremendous task for the Moderators to manage
the Internet Forum wherein the writers, members, readers, laity, clergy,
critics, observers and advisors are from different continents, countries,
regions, languages, cultures, etc. The contents of the postings are very
much informative, educative and also create awareness amongst all types of
people around the world. Historical findings and early Church documents
from the ancient monastries of the Church and its Holy Fathers are specially
mentioned here, which invites appreciation to the Moderators for their
voluntary initiatives to bring forth the essence of our true and undefiled
HEARTY CONGRATULATIONS TO THE MODERATORS on the FOURTH BIRTHDAY OF
SOCM-forum on 15th November 2004 !!!!
We pray to God Almighty that the Holy Spirit may guide you further and
enhance your ability and knowledge to shine as the chosen jewels and your
services become flawless and beneficial to the world.
Yours in Christ,
