2014 August NEWSLETTER
Message from our vicar
For St. Paul "Gospel is the sufficiency of God's grace." (2 Cor2:9). For him this Grace of God is the redemptive grace. Redemptive grace is explicit in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ whom God sent for our salvation. The Grace of God is not merely God's kindly disposition. Grace is embodied in God's powerful and costly action for the salvation of the world through Christ's self-giving on the Cross. We are God's children not as a result of our deed or merit but because of Christ's redemptive death on the Cross (Gal. 3:26, 27). Anything which negates the sufficiency of God's grace which was shown through the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ on Cross is not the true gospel but a false one or a perversion of gospel. For Paul Gospel is “Jesus the Crucified and the Resurrected” (2 Tim.2:8). 

   
Holy Qurbana in itself is the celebration and proclamation of God's redemptive act in Jesus Christ. One has to be mindful that God's grace in Jesus' salvific death should/must not be diluted in any way. The minister of God should always teach and preach this true Gospel, i.e. Gospel of redemptive Grace in and through Jesus Christ's death on Cross. The minister’s acts and teachings should be what pleases God even if it displeases others (Gal 1:10).

    The Deacon says "Various kinds of teachings spring up in all quarters, but blessed is he who begins and ends in the teaching of God." The curse is on those who teach a perverted gospel whether he is a human being or even a celestial being. And those who begin and ends in the teaching of God is the blessed one (cf. Isa 52:7; Rom 10:15). This reminds us that the grace of God in Christ is the basis for our salvation. The worshipping community is reminded hereby that we should stick to the true Gospel and our worship should be in line with this truth.

May God keep us in His Warm and comforting Embrace

Rev. Shinoi Joseph
Vicar

Edavaka Mission Activities

Mar Thoma Voluntary Evangelist's Association was found by our late Metropolitan Most Rev. Abraham Mar Thoma out of his strong conviction that each Mar Thomite is an Evangelist.  Evangelism is the utmost mission of this Organization.  The Parish level unit is known as the Edavaka Mission and at the Long Island Mar Thoma Church, New York, we give stress to the seven fold activities such as Intercessory Prayer, Bible Study, Sharing of Experience, House Visit, Visiting the Sick, Group Activities etc

Edavaka Mission regular meetings are conducted every
Thursday at 7.30 PM at the Church as well as Members' houses with prior announcement at the Parish on Sundays.  Fasting Prayer meetings are conducted once every month at the members' houses either the last Saturdays or Thursdays depending upon members and Achen's convenience with prior announcement at the Parish on Sundays.
