Sunday, 8th May, was observed as Medical Week with members of the Healthcare sector taking lead roles in different parts of the Worship Service.
The sermon was delivered by Dr. Anna Jacob, with emphasis on healing, rather than just treating an illness. Doctors can only treat, but healing comes from God alone. We often consider our disabilities as flaws and tend to forget that God has created us perfectly in his image. He has created each one of us for a specific purpose and the disabilities in us are for the glorification of God. In the Old Testament, we see that Moses was hesitant to lead the Israelites out of Egypt, because he was slow in speech. But God used Moses’s disability for his glory and freed the Israelites through him. The Christian life does not mean a life without pain, but God will help us push through. In the New Testament, we read that Paul was given a thorn in his flesh (pain), to keep him from getting conceited, but God said to him in 2 Corinthians 12:9, that His grace was sufficient for Paul and that His power was made perfect in weakness.
We are indebted to all the Medical workers who work tirelessly to look after the health and well-being of the society, which was evident, especially during the difficult days of the pandemic. May God bless them abundantly.
Rev. Shaji Jacob Thomas, our Vicar, led the Holy Communion Service.
