Message From the Vicar
The mission of the Church is to be renewed and to renew.
“…And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect”. Romans 12:2
Dear friends in Christ!
Renewal of life is what God always expects from us. He God renews our hearts, minds, and bodies. He invites all of us as humans to a personal relationship with Him, and when we turn against Him, He still keeps on inviting us to live a life worthy of Him by making our lives renewed. The purpose of Jesus’ coming as a human being and his ministry was to renew the world, which includes the whole creation;
similarly, the work
of the Holy Spirit is also to renew the life of all humans.
We all are in constant need of continued spiritual renewal. Every day the world, the flesh, and the devil seek to pull us back into a spiritual lethargy that chokes the new life we have received through the “….washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit” (Titus 3:5). But we need it not only individually, but corporately, as God’s people and this corporate renewal happens when God’s Spirit moves on a group of His people. “Renew” is one of the words of our anniversary theme. As the mission of God is the mission of the Church, let us rededicate our lives to renew our lives and the life of others as a continuation of God’s mission.
gives me much joy to be connected through this magazine with all the readers who are connected to St Paul’s family.
I humbly request all the readers of this bulletin to remember
and uphold the Church in your prayers and to be connected
with the same. I thank all the parishioners and activity groups
of the church for taking initiation in organizing various
programmes, activities and worships to renew the life and
spirit of the Church as part of the anniversary celebration of
the Church. Also I thank all the well wishers and donors for
keeping on contributing towards the Church for its mission
and all the anniversary celebrations.
May the almighty God help us to experience his renewal in our lives.
