GEORGE KURIAN (RIP) --- Lover of Art and Literature


The late George Kurian --- our beloved Editor-in-Chief had a passion for Art and Literature.  He loved the art work of his friends Abraham G, Neetha Thomas, Anjana Jose and many more.  It is also a great feat to gather his finest poets Mary Varghese, Neetha and Preeta Thomas, Jose Pinto Stephen, Dr J Kunjappu, Abraham G, Shobhana Nair, his grandchildren, Arianna and Jayan Philip, Mercy ABRAHAM and the like.

Our technical director, Abby Philip is of outstanding help with all technical problems and for pictures needed by New World.  Abbey, thanks very much.  Abraham G also did most postings in the past.  He is a meticulous and outstanding in his editing and posting!  Thanks Abraham G.

Associate Editors Sr ELSIE Baby, the golden writer of New World, Thomas Philip Ranni, the brilliant writer, Thomas Koovallor, the popular one complete the list!  On the other hand, we must not neglect our humorists as Zoorjee, Cherian Varghese, John Chandy and many more.

Our Jane Pimenta who writes beautiful reflections for God Almighty is commendable, too.  Even Anisha has great contributions to New World.

George had been a multi-faceted editor who supported all of his writers!  He had a flair for equality, thus sometimes you will see your post at the top.  When I have at times, my poem at the top, my heart was full of delight.  That's how George led us in the past, compassionate, caring and without prejudice.

Thanks God Almighty for George Kurian, who left a legacy in the world:  his great love for Thee, for his family and writers.

AS YOU LOOK INTO HEAVEN: POEM BY CYNTHIA ABEGAIL



AS YOU LOOK INTO HEAVEN

The children singing, as it usher the birth

As prophesied by Isaiah---Emmanuel

Calm was your face, like Mary echoes

A great pondering in her heart shows.


God has chosen you to proclaim Him,

A shadow of the Lord without dim

Loved the child, the sick and poor

Captivated the world, fire of gold!


A glimpse of your eyes with serenity,

Like a doe, look up into the heavens

Great love for God, as bells rung,

Utmost position, beacons humility.


Bread and wine you offer...

To the Almighty, Creator of all,

As you look into heaven, it opens

Blessings abound---evil flew!


Fame means nothing to you---

Eyes focused on Jesus alone,

The poor all reaches to you,

As you shepherd the lonely!



As you look into heaven, I know,

God favoured you now to show

"I came for sinners, unrighteous,"

 Not for the proud and haughty.


As you look into heaven, I know,

The gentleness in your eyes---

Showed the world the real God

Of mercy, love and of justice.


The flock gathers, teary-eyed,

Emmanuel has come, seeking

For the hearts which stray,

As you look into heaven---

A UNIQUE LANDMARK!

LIFE IS A PUZZLE FORWARDED BY CYNTHIA ABEGAIL

Have you ever stopped and reflect on your life?
The other day, everything seems rosy and you
seem to be jumping over the moon. Well, it could
not be better! The next day, something happened
probably to your car, to your loved one or your cat
may have been missing and many, many things.
Well, the next day, the car was fixed, your loved
one got well or your cat was found!
The roller coaster of life is just unbelievable. Yes,
at times, you ask yourself, why me? Well, don't say
that, it could have been worst than that!
How about looking at the crippled... You have four
legs and arms, I mean in total. How about gazing at
the deaf and mute, the cancer patient or the blind.
Count your blessings, its a multitude.
Life is a puzzle. It's a struggle at times. What's next?
But the good news is God helps us; we may be unaware
but look... you are not sick forever; you are not poor
at all times; you are not sad for long years.
Joy is a thing forever! No matter what, do not give in
to negativity. The tower maybe in fire, the building
may collapse, the job may have been lost and you may
have lost the love of your beloved.
Truly life is more than a tower, a building , a job or a
person that you care for. Although it can be depressing
I know for sure.
Seek Him and all things will be added unto you!

LOOK AT THE FLOWERS BY MARIA CASSIA




















LOOK AT THE FLOWERS


The world is full of flowers, dandelions and lilies,
Look at these flowers; they never plant or view
Shoot from the sepals and grow anew each day
Solomon's garments not as lovely as O they lay.

Roses abound in my garden, reddish and pinkish,
Plucked in the morning as the vase full of water
Offered for my Lord as the morn hasten to noon
The petals brighten as my eyes beamed attune!

Do not worry, for the birds arise to seek a living,
They never earn, nor work or strive with wings
Yet Heavenly Father provides for them array!
How much for you created in His image at bay?

The grasses, verdant green and emerald at times,
How I walked on the lush green at dawn and night
Yet the following day, they'll be gathered in barns
To be burned the next day, as smoke rise as yarns!

Do not worry, for you are precious to your Father,
The Master never forgets you in every day hour
Do not worry for even the luscious flowers thank,
Smile and walk with confidence, for God loves us!

Inspired by the Gospel
Maria Cassia

AN EVERLASTING LOVE FORWARDED BY PRAYER AID


I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore I have continued my faithfulness to you.” Jer.31:3

Every lasting love, no less! In every situation His love is there, it will never be taken away no matter what the condition of our hearts.

In all that we will face today, God is calling us to believe that it is because He loves us. If it is joy, peace and love – it is God’s love for us. If it is sadness, worry and rejection, let us not give into it, for that is not from Him. Satan tries to steal what God gives us.

God’s love is steadfast, and will never change. God is never moody with us; there is nothing, absolutely nothing He will not do for us, so let us continue to be faithful to Him trusting that everything will fall into place in His own time. He will leave nothing unattended. God loves you, enjoy life and shed your burden!  by Jane Pimenta
(Thanks Jane for this reminder on how God loves all with an everlasting love.  God
reaches out to everybody, yet it is up to the person to respond positively to God's offer of love!  Excellent).  New World

REVELATION 3: 5 "BE DRESSED IN WHITE"

WHY DO I LOVE YOU? POEM BY ROY CROFT FORWARDED BY THOMAS PHILIP RANNI

WHY DO I LOVE YOU ? FORWARDED BY THOMAS PHILIP RANNI
WHY DO I LOVE YOU ?
BY
ROY CROFT

I love you,
Not only for what you are,
But for what I am
When I am with you.

I love you
Not only for what
You have made of yourself,
But for what
You are making of me.

I love you
For ignoring the possibilities
Of the fool in me
And for laying firm  hold
Of the possibilities for good.

Why do I love you?

I love you
For closing your eyes
To the discords-
And for adding to the music in me
By worshipful listening.

I love you because you
Are helping me to make
Of the lumber of my life
Not a tavern
But a temple;
And out of the words
Of my every day
Not a reproach
But a song.

I love you
Because you have done
More than any creed
To make me happy.

You have done it
Without a word,
Without a touch,
Without a sign,
You have done it
Just by being yourself.

After all
Perhaps that is what
Love means.

-ROY CROFT

Farewell to A Great Man, a Missionary of Love and Faith ---George Kurian

In my several years of missionary work for the poor and faithful service to God Almighty in the Name of Jesus Christ, I have never encountered such a person as George Kurian.  Truly,  I admired his ethos in his life, "All are equal."  With some groups having a superiority over one another, his faith is remarkable.


He has respect for everyone, no matter what status in life they have, poor or rich, Gentile or Jew or just anybody.  I remembered St Paul, the apostle of the Gentiles stressing in the Letter of the Romans, "For all fall short of the glory of God."  How dare if we judge one another!



One more thing that I observe with our late George is his approach to wealth or money.  His principle is strong and his values are commendable.  Money is nothing for him but just a way to buy simple necessities in life.  But money could not buy the values in life!



Words are not enough to describe a great man.  What I know is George has been a living testimony of a true follower of Christ, a missionary of God's love and great faith in God Almighty!  As the Scripture attest, "God will provide, seek Ye first the Kingdom of God and everything will be added unto you."




Farewell to my beloved Chief Editor of New World, George Kurian.  Tears may flow unabated, we will always treasure you in our hearts.  Eternal rest grant upon his soul, O' Lord and may he rest in peace.  Amen
