Moderator visited several parishes

The following day he visited St. Mary’s Church, Jobarpar where he joined a youth seminar which was arranged for the SSC and HSC examinees. Bishop delivered a speech using Matthew 6:33 `But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.’  In his speech he said that our values as a human being have much declined and we are now desperately after the worldly things. He reminded everyone that we should not be like that as a Christian. We should follow the word of God, obey His commands and also should follow our parent’s instructions. He referred to many Bible passages on those views. There were a total of 40 youth from Jobarpar and Khulna Deaneries attended the seminar.

On 7th August Bishop left for Khulna and attended the Khulna Deanery’s Council meeting on the following day and   delivered speech. He reminded all the church leaders that we should not forget the objectives of our Church. He added Church is not like a club where you can do whatever you like. He reminded the people that they should seek His will and work for His Kingdom here in this earth. Therefore, we all should keep Him first in our lives and also in our Church’s life.

He also stated he felt it was sad to say that sometimes people leave God behind and try to go forward without Him. There were 40 members present at the council.
