Greetings to you in the name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ

I thank God almighty for giving us the opportunity to enter a new month. The first Sunday church we will meditate upon the theme heavenly wisdom. Wisdom is a gift from God. James 1:5 states “But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all men generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him.” Wisdom is what God will bless us with in order for us to glorify Him with the knowledge we have of Him. Proverbs 1:7 says “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; Fools despise wisdom and instruction.” Knowledge is what is gathered from Scrip-tures through meditation. And wisdom reveals itself by acting upon that knowledge. So we could say knowledge and wisdom are two sides of one coin. The second Sunday church is observing as Ecological Sunday. In Genesis, God said “till it and keep it”, (Gen 2:15) this should be understood not as do-minion over the whole world, but as the ‘stewardship’ of human beings over the creatures. We must have a relationship of mutuality with other creatures and we must empathize and participate with, delight in, and accompany the creatures to bring about a communion of all sections of creation whose head is God himself. Genesis teaches us that the Lord God formed us “out of the dust of the ground” (Gen. 2:7; 3:19). Therefore, human and creation had an interdependent relationship. Let us decide to protect our nature for our coming generation. Second Sunday will be observed as Youth Fellow-ship Sunday and I praise God for our youth members and their activity. On third Sunday, the theme will be `called to be sent’ and that Sunday will also observe as Father’s Day. Each parents are called to be in His flock with certain responsibilities. Let us remember the sacrificial life of our parents.

Sunday School final exam will be held on June 4th and Talent Festival will be conducted on June 17th. I urge the parents to take extra effort to make sure that their children are attending. Young Family One Day Conference will be held on June 10th, at our church. The young family members should attend the meeting. Special offertory will be collected on third Sunday during the service. Envelops will be circulated and offer your contribution prayerfully. Sevika Sanghom is planning an outing on June 29th to Ridgewood Garden, Philadelphia and I pray that it will help to enrich our fellowship. May God bless us all.

Your Issac Achen
