2014 in review


The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 24,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 9 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

The Nativity Show


I had the opportunity to watch the Living Nativity live show at Community Fellowship Church in Hainesport, Mount Laurel, NJ. Mr. Samuel Kuriakose (Nibu) took me to the show on 19th Dec. 2014. One of the chief organizers of the show was Mr. John Hearle and old friend of Mr. Nibu. Nibu’s wife Veena and daughter Nesa accompanied. The show was outside the Church in independent booths and it was very cold. I had hard time in holding my iPad to take the video. But it was a wonderful experience. Thanks to Nibu and family.

A Visit to Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum


I visited Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum again a second time with my hosts in Sunland Parish on Dec. 5th 2-14. The Ronald W. Reagan Presidential Library and Museum in Simi Valley, California, USA was dedicated by five former presidents of America on November 4, 1991. Ronald Reagan became the president of United States in January 1981. He brought several economic reforms that helped the country revive from the economic crisis that hit US in the 70s. Margret Thatcher, the then Prime Minister of UK joined him in this reform policy. The economic policy initiated by him controlled the world economy till 2008. The philosophy behind this policy is known as “Reagan Thatcher Thesis”. A Video of my tour is uploaded to my Youtube channel.

Fifth Anniversary of the Mission in California


On November 30th I ordained a deacon, two M’Samronos, two Khoruyos and three Afathyakhnos at St. James of Serugh Syrian Orthodox Church, Sunland, CA. I also authorized four women to be part of official choir as singers with their uniform. This parish is a Mission Parish of Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church under my care since 2009. This was the fifth Anniversary of the Parish under Malankara Orthodox Church. They are quite happy with our leadership. A video is uploaded to my Youtube channel.
