Letter from Cor-Bishop Fr. George Bet Rasho

Written by Josephine Minas   

Easter is a very special time for us as believers in our Lord and Savior Jesus the Christ. It is during Easter that we are reminded of our Savior’s deep love for each one of us. We take time to stand in awe of Jesus’ crucifixion, His death, and celebrate His resurrection. It is because of His sacrifice that, if we believe in Him, we are redeemed and have hope of eternal life. “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him shall not parish but have everlasting life.” John 3:16

As we go through this season of Soma, my prayer is that it will be a fruitful Christ centered time of renewal and rebirth.  I pray that this time of delving into the Word of God has been a time that has edified our spirits and nurtured our continued growth in Christ. Easter is a reminder that we have to live each day as believers who have a Savior that is risen.  As the body of the risen Christ, we are called to be His hands, feet, and heart. Let us continue in our service to one another, as John 13:35 states, By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another."

The celebration of the Assyrian New Year is the celebration of the renewal of life.  As we rejoice in our heritage, traditions, culture and language; let us also renew our selves and our commitment to our great Assyrian name. Let us evaluate our role in uniting the Assyrian people, our role in perpetuating our cultural essence, and our role in impacting the community around us with the Word of God.

Every Sunday service we remember the passion, death and resurrection of our Lord and Savior. I encourage you to invite all of your family and friends to be actively involved in our weekly services. Let the Spirit of God move in our hearts and let us all be sensitive to the prompting of His Holy move. Let us live life victoriously as our God and Savior is risen!

The Sanctuary, by the grace of God, is close to completion. I thank you all for your continued support, patience and prayers with the construction process. I encourage us all to continue in that same spirit of giving, for your continued prayers, and for God’s blessing to be in the process. There are still items that need sponsorship, please feel free to visit the church office for more information. It is all for God’s glory.

May you all have a wonderful Easter, and a blessed New Year. I pray that our merciful father will grant each one of us joy, health, and prosperity; but most of all, I pray that we all have a personal relationshiop with Jesus Christ. May God continue to bless us all.

In His Service,

Cor-Bishop Fr. George Bet Rasho
