DEARLY BELOVED IN CHRIST
As we stand on the threshold of a new year, let our hearts be filled with gratitude for the blessings of the past and anticipation for the journey that lies ahead. The pages of the calendar turn, marking not just the passage of time but a continuous narrative of faith, fellowship, and growth within our cherished community.
In the tapestry of life, each thread represents a shared moment, a collective prayer, and a bond that strengthens with every passing day. As we welcome the dawn of 2024 let us reflect on the lessons learned, the challenges overcame, and the love that unites us as one family under the grace of God.
Take a moment to look back at the milestones we’ve achieved together. Whether it’s the success of community events, the warmth of fellowship, or the resilience shown in times of trial, our shared experiences shape the narrative of our church. In gratitude, let us acknowledge the contributions made by every member, recognizing the beauty that emerges when we come together as a family of faith.
With the turning of the calendar, we embark on a new chapter. Let the theme of hope guide us as we face the unknown. Together, we can build on the foundations of our faith, cultivate deeper connections, and extend our arms in love to those who seek solace. Through prayer, commitment, and a shared vision, let us set forth into the months ahead, ready to embrace the challenges and joys that come our way.
As we step into the new year, let unity be our watchword. In times of celebration and trial, let us stand beside one another, a beacon of support and understanding. Our faith calls us not only to love but to serve. In this spirit, let us renew our commitment to community service, reaching out to those in need and embodying the teachings of Christ in our actions.
May the new year bring us closer as a community, deepen our spiritual connection, and fortify the bonds that make St. Mark’s Mar Thoma Church a beacon of light and love. Together, with God’s grace, we will script a story of faith, hope, and enduring fellowship.
Wishing you all a blessed and joyous New Year!
In Christ’s Love,
Rev Sam Lukose Kulakkada
