LATEST SERMON BY REV. KOCHUKOSHY ABRAHAM
FROM THE VICAR’s DESK
May the Peace pronounced in the first Christmas by the angels be ours through the advent of our Lord into our lives!,
Christmas involves a lot of symbols that continuously generate meanings that are relevant for all contexts of life. One such symbols is the cattle-shed, where Jesus was born. Cattle-shed is interpreted in comparison with other possible places of his birth, namely the “inn” and the “palace of Herod.”

The Mexico Mission shares the love of Jesus Christ with the fishermen of the Fantasia and Puntilla Norte Islands. These islands are located in the Gulf of Mexico, about 80 kilometers away from the mainland. The Trinity Mar Thoma Church of Houston joins this ministry by sending mission teams to the islands. The Mission Team conducts Health Clinics, House Construction, House Visits, and Bible Classes for the people of the islands. The mission team also provides food and clothes for the islanders.
Dearly beloved in Christ,
I write this message with mixed feeling. This would be my last message that I could pen down as the Assistant Vicar of Trinity Mar Thoma Church, Houston through this newsletter. As I reflect over the past years, could affirm that these were the three memorable years of fulfilment. What a blessed time we had with the Trinity family!
