Pongal worship held in UTC

The Tamil fellowship of the UTC held the Pongal worship yesterday morning on the library lawn. The worship was a mix of colour, traditional songs, dance and fellowship.

The worship engaged the audience and explored the sad minds of people post the devastating floods in Tamil Nadu and how people are celebrating the new year despite the hard ships and challenges faced. It reminded everyone of our responsibilities as caretakers of Mother earth and why we should look at the thoughtful pongal celebration of an agrarian people.

The hope in the midst of adversity was shown in the boiling over of the milk and the call 'Pongal o pongal'. Guests from other seminaries also witnessed the colorful worship.

The lawn resembled a recreation of rural India with the call for all to join hands with God's creation instead of going against it.
