THE SKY IS THE LIMIT

Bhingar  July 14,012 :  July 15 marks the thirtieth day since Fr Nelson Falcao Ph.D entered Bhingar.  I imagined living with him as being totally out of touch with earthly realities.  Living with him for one month changed this perception.  His first challenge was organizing the parish feast.  He herded all the groups into the church and asked each group to volunteer what responsibility they could take. He united the people and moved them towards their goal.  This way each group knew what was their responsibility .  The feast was a great success, with a meaningful liturgy and the common meal – snehbhojan - organised and sponsored by the people and all enjoyed. The evaluation of the day was done next by using Edward De Bono’s monitoring and evaluation tool, Six Hats and was extremely positive of the planning and work put in by all. We believe that what begins within the heart  transforms the people.  Fr. Nelson as  an Animator  is a connoisseur in getting  people to feel welcome and spill out their inner turmoil and cry.  One month over, the pace is slow and definite, and the parish of Bhingar is bound to fly,and the sky is the limit. Well begun is Half done, Fr Nelson.
