Kohima, December 12 (NEx): Nagaland Legislators celebrated Advent Christmas with Kethoser Kevichüsa as the speaker at State Banquet Hall (New), CMRC, Kohima on December 12, 2020.

Speaking on the occasion, Kevichüsa said that peace is one thing which everyone is longing for at this juncture. He said, “Peace will never come to us unless we first forgive and make ourselves at peace with the Lord Saviour Jesus Christ”. He urged the gathering to forgive others in the name of our Lord saviour Jesus Christ and let peace be in our midst taking the advantage of the forthcoming Christmas.

Participating in the Nagaland Legislators Christian Fellowship pre-Christmas celebrations, Nagaland Governor, R.N. Ravi wished a very merry Christmas to the people of Nagaland. He hailed Mahatma Gandhi as one of the greatest disciples of Jesus and recalled how the Sermons on the Mount touched Gandhi’s heart and awakened in him the purity and power of Truth and Non-violence which became the cardinal principles of his personal and public life and liberated India from the colonial rule. Governor reminded the legislators that they were the chosen people and exhorted them to be conscious of their responsibility of bringing enduring peace to the suffering people of Nagaland in true Christian spirit of truth and non-violence and be the blessed peacemaker. He emphasised on the eventual invincibility of truth which could be temporarily eclipsed by the lies of vested interests but never extinguished.

Christmas greetings was delivered by Minister Higher Education, Technical Education and Tribal Affairs, Temjen Imna Along while Advisor Urban Development & Municipal Affairs, Dr. Neikiesalie Kire presented a special number and Legislators along with their lady wives also presented special number. Harmonic Voices and MAK also presented special numbers during the service.

Meanwhile, the service was led by State Chaplain, Rev. T.W. Yamyap Konyak while Khyochano TCK was the pianist.
