MOM & Weekend Event

We started the Yuvajana Sakhyam after the Sevika Sangham breakfast sale. We learnt a new Maramon Convention Song and this was followed by Quiz conducted by Christo and Gladwin. We formed two teams called DMK & ADMK(Names suggested by Gladwin) :-) . DMK and ADMK were lead by Robin and Daiju respectively.

There were seven rounds for the quiz based on various categories :

1) Bible portion(John chapter 5 to 10)

2) Meanings of Syriac liturgical terms

3) Abbreviations

4) Pictures

5) Logos

6) Flags

7)Audio-Visual round.

It was a very interesting quiz. Thanks to Christo and Gladwin for made a unique style of quizzing.

Finally DMK Won the quiz by just five points:-)

Bible Study during Sermon

It was 4th Sunday after lent started. Daiju presented a speech based on Matthew 15: 8-28.

He told the story of the a Canaanite Woman's Faith.

A Canaanite woman came to Jesus and cried, saying, "Have mercy on me, Lord, son of David! My daughter is severely demonized!"

But he answered her not a word.
His disciples came and begged him, saying, "Send her away; for she cries after us."
But he answered, "I wasn't sent to anyone but the lost sheep of the house of Israel."
But she came and worshiped him, saying, "Lord, help me."
But he answered, "It is not appropriate to take the children's bread and throw it to the dogs."
But she said, "Yes, Lord, but even the dogs eat the crumbs which fall from their masters' table."
Then Jesus answered her, "Woman, great is your faith!

How we will survive in this hard situations ?
God will hear those who repent. Do not come to church as for a formality or as a routine ..Be in Faith with Lord..

Jesus is not meant for Jews but for every one. Learn " How to receive not only to give".

Faith :- Its a combination of Objective faith and Subjective faith..

The woman's words and actions showed her faith through being persistent. She knows she was just tested by God with His responses. But the woman was able to wait and beg for God's mercy. That's how much faith the Canaanite woman has for our Lord. This should have been our attitude over any circumstances in life.
