Trinity Sunday

Today is the Sunday when Christians generally comment on or spend time with the doctrine of the Trinity - perhaps the most obscure, mysterious, incohate, and among the most meaningful elements of the Christian tradition.

But let's not take ourselves too seriously.

So, here's a joke from yesterdays Kansas City Star:

Jesus said, "Who do people say that I am?" His disciples replied, "Some say that you are John the Baptist returned from the dead; others say Elijah or another of the propehts."

Jesus replied, "But who do you say that I am?"

Peter answered and said, "Thou art the Logos, existing in the Father as his rationality and then, by an act of his will, being generated, in consideration of the various functions by which God is related to his creation, but only because Scripture speaks of a Father, a Son and a Holy Spirit, each member of the Trinity being coequal with every other member and each acting inseparably with and interpenetrating every other member, with only an economic subordination within God, but causing no division which would make the substance no longer simple."

And Jesus replied, saying, "What?"

  • No, of course, we wouldn't want to make the substance no longer simple. Not that.

  • PRAISE THE LORD





    Dear Most honourable Servant of most high. Greetings to you in exalted name of Dear Lord Jesus Christ. I take it as my privilege to meet you through this humble letter and I am praising lord and praying for you knowing about your tremendous Ministry in this end time. I need to share my burden of the gospel with the people of God who are anointed by same spirit of God which was in the Acts of apostles has bounded us together to share each of our vision and burden to show the life of Jesus through our lives in this last generation.

    As you know that our government is Hindu religious and passing the decrees against Christianity and causing much hindrances for the spreading of the gospel. Day by day Christian are living very miserable life and loosing freedom of proclamation of the gospel Christians and their children are suffering with out having opportunities to be educated or to get any provision from the government side. We are serving lord in midst of problems like castsystem, discriminations and anti Christian forces like atheism, Muslims.

    Our church believers were driven away from their villages because of their faith. People coming to worship the Lord from miles and miles away. We have been walking miles and miles to reach these souls every day. Many times we were neglected jeered at, mocked and beaten. By the grace of God many people coming to our Church being delivered from bounds of the evil spirits, pains, heart diseases, cancers etc. Our worshipping center seems to be spiritual hospitals and we are unable to show them facilities because we are passing the time by staying under small thatched rooms. We have no proper worshiping places, houses, worshipping under thatched rooms. Here Christian were treated as inferior and foreigners Christian children have no freedom in the schools and were criticized by atheistic teachers. They are conducting schools on Sundays to prevent children without attending to Sunday schools and churches. So Christian Children suffer with un education, un employment, malnutrition.

    Now a days many Christian workers interested in living in cities and limited their ministry only to developed areas, but lord kept the burden in our hearts for the remote costal uncivilized tribal people. So we are living with them and working with them. My heart beet is to see the work of the Lord done very eagerly in these last uncertain days.
    Please kindly pray for our Ministry, our Orphan Children, our Church Widows and Youth and we need a bible school to train up our native youth.

    We are serving lord in a very remote, untamed land of Andhra Pradesh coastal area where the souls of the people perishing by worshipping life less objects and losing ethical and spiritual values by drinking alcohal becoming addicts to the drugs bounded by the evil spirits. I lost my mother and my brother in this place. I want to be sacrifice for His service and for this people (MT 5:10)

    I am striving hard to become a valuable vessel of god for his service in this end time. By the grace of god I have received my B.D. through many hard circumstances. I have much interest to know Him more and to involve in teaching and preaching ministry and to proclaim the gospel in tangible way (MT 25:31-46) but the poverty is not allowing to go further. Here many became orphans, widows and widowers because of many natural calamities like cyclone. We have to show the savour of the gospel light through our good works (MT 5:16).

    I have the promise KNOCK, IT SHALL BE OPENED (MT 7:7) I may be knocking at your door in this odd times. Please kindly open your generous door for my ministry in India. I have decided my country needs to be changed it is no small task and I don't take it lightly. So I will have to ask your help in doing. I am nothing but dust except you take intervenes in my ministry I need your blessed ministry in India. As I am sharing all these things please take one more step to visit us and evaluate our work and share your valuable god given gifts, waiting for your miracles response.

    Thanking you,

    Together for His mission.
