MISSION UNITY THAN ORGANIC UNITY
By H.G. Joseph Mar Gregorios Metropolitan
[Diocesan Metropolitan of Kochin Diocese, Jacobite Syrian Church]
Aim of the manifestation of ecumenical movement was to create an inhabitable world. The prevailing social fascism, caste systems, poverty, atrocities against women, environmental deteriorations, divisive mentality, these all are the new challenges for the ecumenical growth. The divisive denominations of the Christian Churches are the wounds of the body of Christ. Every Christians and Christian denominations have the responsibility to heal the wounds of Christ. Ecumenism should not be shortened for the organizational activities. It should be the moving spirit of the mass.

FEAR OF GOD - PART 1
By Rev. Dr. Valsan Thampu
Fear has reached nearer, farther, higher and deeper in human life today than ever before. Those who fear men will not fear God, and vice versa. The fear of men enslaves. The fear of God empowers. It liberates us from the fear of men, which compromises our dignity, stifles our freedom and erodes the integrity and purpose of our life. Living a fruitless life in the Kingdom of God is an offence. Only those who love God can fear Him. Without the fear of god no human being can repent and change his ways.

TRNASFIGURATION THROUGH GRACE
By Rev. Rajkumar
When we are turned to Christ a veil of our heart is removed. Then we are able to perceive the word of God very clearly. If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away, new things have come. Sinful, anxious, discouraging, futile, unforgiving and worldly thoughts are not conforming to the mind of Christ. Holy Scripture sanctifies our mind and heart. Let the word of Christ richly dwell within us.

OVERCOME EVIL WITH GOOD
By E.S. John Australia
Do not overcome by evil but overcome evil with good. This is the sum and substance of an ideal Christian living. Only those who have self-respect and self-examination can only respect and love other people. The Triune God loved the world; hence the Father sent His only begotten Son to save the world for His sacrifice. Only a pure and austere life can defeat the dark world of the fallen legions.
