Dimapur, Dec. 13 (EMN): Nagaland legislators celebrated advent Christmas with Kethoser Kevichüsa as the speaker at State Banquet Hall (New), CMRC, Kohima on December 12.

Speaking on the occasion, Kevichüsa stated that peace is that 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”.

He also urged the gathering to forgive others in the name of Jesus Christ and let peace be in their midst taking the advantage of forthcoming Christmas.

Participating in the Nagaland Legislators Christian Fellowship pre- Christmas celebrations, Nagaland Governor RN Ravi has conveyed Christmas greetings to the people of Nagaland. He hailed Mahatma Gandhi as one of the greatest disciples of Jesus and recalled how the Sermon 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.

The 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 also emphasised on the eventual invincibility of truth which could be temporarily eclipsed by the lies of vested interests but never extinguished.

Christmas greetings were delivered by the minister of higher and technical education and tribal affairs, Temjen Imna Along, while the advisor of Urban Development and Municipal Affairs, Dr. Neikiesalie Kire, presented a song.

Other highlights of the celebration included song presentations by legislators along with their wives, as well as by Harmonic Voices and MAK.

State chaplain, Rev. TW Yamyap Konyak, was the leader while Khyochano TCK was the pianist during the service.
