To all Friends

Greetings from the JMM Study Centre, Trivandrum.

We are organizing an Ecumenical Clergy-in-Service Training programme from July 27 to 30, 2010. The programme is centred around the theme, Christian Identity: Reformulating our Faith and Theology. Eminent thinkers and theologians will address the problem of identity politics, which is currently an important topic of discussion in the Kerala politics. The main presentations, Bible Studies and Panel discussions, centred around the theme, will stimulate our thinking and help us to creatively respond to the contemporary issues in our ministry. Come and be part of a creative minority that struggles to make our faith and ministry relevant and meaningful.

Kindly confirm your participation by ordinary mail, e-mail, or phone.

As usual the centre will take care of your food and accommodation. Travel assistance also will be given to full time participants. Registration fee is R.100. The number of participants is limited to 30.

With love and regards,

Yours in Christ's service

Rev. Dr. T. Jacob Thomas
(Associate Director)
