The Nation of Refugees. A play

The UTC, Bangalore will be performing a play "The Nation of Refugees" based on the Christmas theme for the year "Christmas: A home away from home" on Thursday, Dec 3, 2015 at the Charles Ranson hall in the UTC. The play (Teaser available here) talks of the plight of people who have to leave their own country and are seen as foreigners and strangers in their own land.

The play explores the frailty of human beings and is an exploration of power and politics and how it affects ordinary people. During advent and leading into Christmas, this play instills hope in all and asks us to join in the struggle for hope, freedom and dignity for all.

The play is directed by Jain Syriac Babu and produced by the Communication department and worship committee of the UTC with active support from the entire college and creative support from SCMI. The cast includes students of the college.

Exposure to New Life Fellowship

Encountering and engaging whole heartedly in worshiping God and the readiness to have candidness to inter-denominational diversity was visible in the BD first year students of United Theological College, Bengaluru during their visit to New Life Fellowship Church on November 15, 2015 under the tutelage of Sr. Dr. Rani Joseph Mary Shruti, SND. Pastor Sam Skaria led the praise and worship followed by the Holy Communion. After the welcome note, the word of God was shared by Pastor Manohar based on Romans 5:1-11 reminding the congregation about the blessings that one acquire by justification. The blessings are Peace with God, Access to the father God and Hope in God. The worship service was similar to that of First Assembly of God Church, but kept its individuality. Also the students were able to discover the similarities and differences in the worship service from the view point of one’s own church tradition and also to broader one’s perspective.
