Chennai, India: Christmas Day in India – by Caleb

I’m going to start off this blog by saying, being a Christian is not exactly easy. However, being a Christian in India, is even harder. Being Christian in India, which is a country predominantly Hindu and trying to find an English speaking church to spend Christmas morning, now that is somewhat terrifying for whoever is in charge. And that, is what we went through. Sure, we got presents in the morning and had lots of fun, but we didn’t forget the truIMG_0721e meaning of Christmas. Thus, we went to church. For me, “church” was more like a rock concert with a guy yelling in between  songs! You’ve got the guy with the loonnngg black hair wailing on the electric guitar, the brother on bass, the other guy smashing on the drums shaking his head up and down, wondering about his chiropractor, and the lead singer. Apart from the different style of music and a pastor who was trying really hard to get his point across, it was almost the same as our church at home, Forestview. It was your typical service with music at the beginning and end, and the pastor in the middle. And that was pretty much it. If you’re still interested, look up “New Life Assembly, Chennai India” on your device. Overall we had a great Christmas Day and we left remembering what the true meaning of Christmas is all about.
