Nagaland Governor R N Ravi, while wishing merry Christmas to the people of Nagaland, recalled Mahatma Gandhi as one of the greatest disciples of Jesus. Ravi said that 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, according to a DIPR report.
R N Ravi was speaking during the Advent Christmas celebration organised by Nagaland legislators at State Banquet Hall (New), CMRC in Kohima on December 12, 2020.
The Governor then 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.
Kethoser Kevichüsa was the main speaker of the event.
Kethoser is a speaker and trainer with RZIM Life Focus Society.
While 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 peace with the Lord Saviour Jesus Christ”.
Kethoser then 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 forthcoming Christmas”.
