Losing Our Way Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day I can hear her breathing. --------------------------------------------------------- Arundhati Roy (Indian author, advocate, activist)

S INDIA: Shantivanam Ashram; Trichy; Kumily; Amritapuri Ashram; Kollam; Varkala; Kottayam; Cochin

To accommodate the number of people who come to pray in silence and seek God in the context of this community, a bigger Church is being built – “Come see the new temple” they told us.  On the outside it resembles a Hindu temple (even displaying a Jesus who prays in meditation posture), the sanctuary inside includes Christian Orthodox design (following a long tradition of Christian Orthodoxy in India, which tradition has it was brought over by Thomas the Apostle in 52 A.D.).
