getting the youth ministry moving

If you have been following this blog, you would know that I have been in the process of finding out the meaning of my life, by experiencing each day as the Lord brings it.

Small head starts have been made in the youth ministry.

In the Mumbai and Navi Mumbai centres ( clusters) I could involve gracious youth in teaching their younger ones the basics of our faith. The youth took it up wholeheartedly that I thanked God again for the Mar Thoma youth of Mumbai. They are just ready to do anything for the Lord.

And I have been leading a couple of sessions and sharing from the Word of God and have tried to be a friend to all.

The latest is the big attempt to meet our youth with the Word of God where they are most accessible – online.Yes, you may not get them for meetings even if they want to come because of the global market work timings and the rough ride on the Mumbai local train. But they are so definitely online. So am I.

I shouldn’t be saying them, since I am one among… this group.

So what better way to get everyone on to this? The Great Lent which begins on 15th of February culminating with Easter. In the Syrian tradition churches, the lent is 50 days unlike European tradition based churches who hold lent for 40 days.

So we are having an online devotions series in which each church youth group will participate. It’s named:

@Lent

The promo is out on youtube. Do check it out and pray for it. May the Word of God reach deep down and touch hearts so that each one of us will fully become what we are meant to be – the image of God ( Genesis 1:27). The links to the devotions can be found on facebook.com/youthministrymumbai
or if you just search in youtube with the search term : @Lent.
It is amazing to see how God uses weak and sinful people like me to reach out to young lives.
