Metropolitan Dr. K.P. Yohannan hoisted the flag to celebrate India’s 68th Independence Day on the morning of 15th August 2014. The members of the St. Thomas Nagar community, including Believers Church Theological Seminary students, Sisters of Compassion and Believers Church staff members took part in this program.

Metropolitan gave an inspiring message to the community members. “India is rich in its diverse culture and it’s really a great honor to be a part of this country,” said the Metropolitan. “Being Indian citizens, it’s our responsibility to respect our leaders and rulers since we have chosen them.” He also encouraged the people to pray for those in authority and also for the peace and safety of our nation.

After the flag-hoisting, the Believers Church Theological Seminary students cleaned a health center nearby St. Thomas Nagar in honor of Independence Day. In the evening, a cultural program was also held and Sri. P.J. Kurien (Deputy Chairman of the Rajya Sabha) was the chief guest of that event. The program started with a song presented by Sisters of Compassion. A group of Sunday school children performed a dance and members of Women’s Fellowship highlighted India’s diversity through various cultural costumes. Teens from Believers Church Youth Movement performed a mime to honor India’s great warriors and soldiers and through this, they showed their pride in being Indian. Seminary students also performed cultural dances and songs.

The day’s festivities were a reminder of how Believers Church works throughout the year to strengthen the nation.
