Indian spiritual festival caused damage to sacred river

INDIA - India’s environmental watchdog has concluded that a spiritual festival held in the country last March caused more than $6 million worth of damage to the Yamuna River that could take a decade to fix. An expert panel, established in 2010, was appointed by India’s National Green Tribunal to investigate. The group concluded in its report released Wednesday, that the Art of the Living Foundation’s World Cultural festival held last year had destroyed the bed of the Yamuna river – considered sacred by Hindus – and adversely affected 170 hectares of surrounding floodplains. The massive event, which featured yoga sessions, performances and prayers was attended by some 3.5 million people and left the area “completely destroyed, not simply damaged” the Hindustan Times cited the report as saying.

“Just what is an APOSTLE?”
Just what is an Apostle?

Today we find the Church of God in a “wilderness of religious confusion!”

The confusion is not merely around the Church – within the religions of the world outside – but WITHIN the very heart of The True Church itself!
