On the occasion of our 5th birthday, SOCM-Forum is crossing another milestone by adding another activity to its operation. We have started a dedicated prayer cell (SOCM Prayer Cell:-http://groups.yahoo.com/group/socmprayercell) for those members who
are interested to pray for others.
The prayer cell will operate on a 24 hour basis and any member can take part in it by dedicating their time, say half-an-hour or one hour, which will be allotted to them by SOCM Moderators as per their options, and pray for the persons and subjects sent to them. We now intend to operate this prayer cell on a fortnightly basis.
Prayer, Charity and Gospel - SOCM is going its best to be in line with the commands from our Lord Jesus Christ. We undertake to pray for your special needs and the earnest prayer should rectify your serious problems - prayer brings peace to many minds and to many families. Tell us your prayer needs in confidence to the group e-mail, and the members of the prayer cell will pray on that subjects.
Our chain prayer will start from 16 November 2005, those members who are interested may join before 16 November and get the time slot of their choice.
Those who want to remember their names, names of their beloveds, or their departed souls of loved ones in the Holy Qurbono, please inform us, and we will arrange it at the earliest.
�Prayer is elevating the mind to the Almighty God and confiding with Him in spiritual utterances. Through prayer we worship and thank Him and lay before Him our needs. Prayer is not only an obligatory duty, but the first and the most beneficial one." :- H.H. Ignatius Ephrem Barsoum of Blessed Memory
"Prayer is the inspiration of childhood, the refuge of youth and peace during old age. When we pray with a heart full of devotion, God accepts it and we receive blessings in return. He who prays to God everyday would never be without truth, morality, faith and devotion, and would never turn against his master or society� :- St: Mor Gregorios Geevarghese, The Patron Saint Of Malankara

- Dear Sir, Thanks for the reply and I appreciate that. Nevertheless, I would like to point out few things for your information and kind consideration. (1) Yes,Message 3350 of 3350 , Mar 8 9:35 PMView SourceDear Sir,Thanks for the reply and I appreciate that. Nevertheless, I would like to point out few things for your information and kind consideration.(1) Yes, It is noticed that the calendar is made by Samajam, but let me reiterate its a Church Calendar. I had pointed out this to Mr. Daniel, who made this a year back, but unfortunately I got the reply that this is to be used for Saudi Arabia. I don't think any one in Saudi Arabia use Church Calendar in their offices. Further, if its for Saudi Arabia, that shpuld be with Samajam members and wellwishers, it should not appear in jacobite online's website. Am I making sense?(2) Even our local church calendar in Kerala often makes this mistakes, as they put these dates in Calendars, I believe. How can we justify that, if so.(3) Communal harmony is well and good, but that should not get in to a level which dilutes the basic faith (when I say faith means, its Christian Faith, not church/ community) we adhere to.As a person, I'm so weak and cannot take it to higher hierarchy, but you can.Once again thanks for your reply and I hope my points are clear to you now.RegardsShibu MATHEWID number is 4595

It has been noticed for the past couple of years hat the Church Calendar highlights the 'Hijra' dates along with the Gregorian date. Basically there is nothing harmful in first shot, but there is a damage behind that.Hijra year is basically the year Muslims calculate as the year when they received Quran to them. My question, Are we Christians accept and acknowledge the same?St. Pauls says to Galatians 1: 9 "As we said before, so say I now again, If any [man] preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed."Keeping this in mind; how do we highlight Hijri year? Let normal calendar carry it for business reasons, but Church Calendar shall not...Please express yourself with comments....Rgds
