"Dalit Tribal Interface: A Ray of Hope for Healing and Restoration" a book published by CWM/ISPCK/MWM/NCCI/PCI contains collection of presentations on Khandhamal issue where Christians were attacked and property destroyed by religious extremists. A consultation on the issue was held in Bhubaneswar, Orissa on January 17 to 22, 2011 where I also was also invited to participate. The book has a Bible study and a note from me.
I was invited to be one of the resource persons at the Church of South India Central Kerala Diocese Pre- Youth Assembly study camp held at Holy Trinity Cathedral, Kottayam on 30th and 31st of August 2012. The main theme was വിശ്വാസം, വിമോചനം, വിളംബരം: ഒന്നാകാന് (Faith, Liberation, Proclamation: To Become One). I gave two presentations on 30th and 31st.
The text of the presentation is given in pdf format. It seems the last line of the text is missing. Sorry about that. It should read: നമ്മെ വെല്ലുവിളിക്കുന്നു, ചെവി ഉള്ളവര് കേള്ക്കട്ടെ!
I gave a one hour lecture to the students of the Orthodox Theological Seminary, Kottayam on Aug. 7, 2012. There is a practice of having general lectures in the seminary on Tuesday afternoons by a metropolitan or some one from the community at large. My theme was "The Crisis of Prophecy". It was in Malayalam and the text is given below in pdf format.
A Karshika Kootayma was organized by the Orthodox Christian Youth Movement Unit of Dubai St. Thomas Orthodox Cathedral which I inaugurated on Friday 13th 2012. Former Krishi Padham of All India Radio director Mr. Vinod Nambiar gave the key note address.
We in the diocese had several meets during the past few weeks. Pictures from some of them.
We elected a new Council for the Diocese. Since we could not elect any woman as per the constitution, I nominated the secretary of Vanitha Samajam and another woman who is serving as the local government body (Taluk Panchayat) president to the council.
