Re: Any of our church in Singapore?
- Shomo Amokh,
I am the one who wrote once regarding our congregation in Baroda. I
do not agree to your first paragraph, but certainly agree to the
fact that our church heads are not really concerned about the growth
of the church everywhere and are confined to certain geographical
areas only. This is not the case with IOC. Their bishops and clergy
are dedicated to keep the flocks together. They have the budget to
build institutes and churches where ever they want but our poor
people cannot afford the cost their own. We must request our Holy
Synod to fix the budget and plan for the churches and establishments
wherever our people live.
In his love
