The department of Church, Public Relations and Resource Mobilisation organised a virtual meeting with all the Auxiliary Secretaries on July 28, 2022 from 9.00 am to 5.00 pm. Rev. Dr. M. Mani Chacko, General Secretary, BSI extended a warm welcome to the Auxiliary Secretaries and encouraged them from God’s Word from the book of 1 Kings 20:28. He reiterated that our experiences on mountain top and valley are unique. Emphazising that the God on the mountain is also the God of valleys, God of the Bible is our God in our good times and difficult times, God who is journeying with us in all times and places. Therefore, we shall not be moved. GS also had emphatically affirmed that with a beautiful statement saying “Bible is a Public Document”, therefore the mandate of the Bible Society of India is to take the Bible in the Public Square with its truth and integral ethics and ethos for the pursuance of peace, justice and reconciliation of the world, while respecting traditions of any context we need to approach traditions with critical examination for the transformation of our lives to make the world a better place to live in.
At Post-lunch, Marketing and Accounts staff from all the Auxiliaries had joined our conversation with special invitees from the Financefrom Department. Mr. Tinku George, Director Finance and Mr. G. R. Samal. Assistant Director, Finance. It was a blessed time of listening to our Auxiliary Secretaries their challenges and prospects in and through their activities, strategies on Church, Public Relations, administrative skills and responsibilities, and their activities on fundraising methods and various strategies. We are grateful to our General Secretary and the Auxiliary Secretaries for a very meaningful time we all spent together through the Zoom platform.
